Florio’s Pizza Hollywood, Fl

My oh my has the Hollywood Boardwalk in Florida changed, and for the best. Well, I guess if you ask some it isn't for the best, but one thing is certain during the winter here in Hollywood... If you have a French Canadian accent, and drive poorly, you will fit right in.

It seems Hollywood has become Southern Quebec. It used to be saturated with tourists looking to escape the cold Canadian weather, but I actually found it hard to find someone speaking English on the boardwalk. My son and I were walking on towards the North when we got hungry. Although we passed by several pizza places along the way, we chose Florio's Pizza since it was directly in front of us when he asked to eat.


Like most places along the way, Florio's Italian Restaurant was pretty busy. We ended up getting a table outside and waited for our server. When the server arrived we were informed that they didn't sell slices out here. You have to either take slices to go or find a seat at the counter. Since there were no seats, and we wanted to relax for a moment, we got stuck ordering a pie from a waiter. This is a damn nuisance Florio's.


I ended up ordering a medium pie and specifically asked for it well done. Many other review sites had several complaints about the lack of cooking on the pizza pies here at Florio's of Little Italy so I tried to prevent it. Also ordered a coke with no ice. The soda arrived and had this strange aftertaste. My son and I totally hated this soda. Florio's is also extremely stingy in that they do not offer free refills on this generic cheap tasting soda as well.


Eventually the pizza arrived at the table Upon first look, I was impressed with the size of the slices. They were cut quite bit for a medium pie. The pizza appeared lite on the sauce, which I prefer but had an enormous amount of unpopped bubbled. This proved the pizza maker couldn't take the time to check on the pie and just left it to cook. This is probably why they have so many negative reviews about the pies not being cooked properly on other sites.


The crust was nice and crisp as I lifted the first slice towards my mouth. My first bite revealed a nice tasting cheese with an average sauce. The crust had a very bland taste, and needed some seasoning. The pie was thin, which I enjoyed, but all-in-all it didn't overly impress me. Florio's is the type of place you go to once when on the boardwalk but don't really feel the allure of going back to. There are so many other pizza places to try on the boardwalk that I think I will find a much better tasting pizza elsewhere. The best part of the pie was the cheese, and the fact it was thin and crisp.

    On June 21st 2015 (Father’s Day) me, my wife my 6 years old daughter and my mom were walking by Hollywood Beach Blvd and decided to go once more to Florio’s (last time we went there, and we decided to ask for something different than pizza was not good).

    Today we asked for: Fettuccine Alfredo (pretty bad, my daughter always likes that pasta anywhere and today she didn’t eat not even 40% of the plate), Lasagna (my mom was very disappointed of it, and she didn’t have not even 30% of the plate, it was not cooked properly, it was a mess), me and my wife asked for Gnocchi Pesto (and it was just eatable…). Then because of a misunderstanding (while ordering the food) we got as well a Greek Salad we didn’t order, but the waiter (Michael) told us: uhhh, as the plate already touch the table we can’t take it back…Unbelievable!!!

    Then the waiter said he will charge just $3 for the salad (as they did not want to take the bloody salad out of the bill), but they ended up charging $9.95 for it!!

    What a TERRIBLE dinner we had today at Florio’s. Never will come back!!

    They think they are smart by acting like this today. But they are losing customers that way, and I’ll make sure everybody I know, gets to know my experience at Florio’s on a Father’s Day, so to STAY AWAY from this place.

    Went there today. Pizza was terrible. Very oily and watery. The waitress was super rude. When the manager came out I thought he came to check up on the complain. Instead started to scream at us and kicked us out the restaurant in front of everyone. I feel so discriminated against. Still paid the 45.00USD for the lousy pizza and 2 beers. Never again!!! Please do not support this place.
