Awesome Vacation Find
This was a great unexpected find on our vacation. We were just hoping for a quick pizza and a drink, but found a nice little gem of a restaurant with white topped tables and excellent pizza. They also have a full italian menu which isn't obvious from their ad on Open Table as well as very nice salads.

Restaurant is located on a busy corner of Route 1 and though they have done a decent job with the build out, it has NO view other than traffic which is a bitoff-putting.
That being said, service and waitstaff were excellent and food was more than competent!

I had a very nice lunch experience here! I will def go back - service was great, food came out hot and fast and tasted delicious. I want to go back for dinner when I am not rushing on my lunch break! I would recommend this spot to everyone!

Time after time an exceptional experience. Great fresh pasta dishes that jump off the plate!! Want something really different for dessert try the zepolis which is like a plate of really fresh hot just made Italian doughnuts covered with cinnamon sugar; they are a great way for finish your meal (MMMM)!

Consistent great food & service!
I have to say this is the best place to go to for a really great meal, service and ambiance. On our last visit we had a late night sitting and the chef came by and chatted with our table for a bit which was a really nice welcoming touch.
New on the menu which I couldn't resist trying was the Shrimp Cakes appetizer and Chicken Risotto entree – oh my, it was so delicious! My husband ordered the Grilled Butcher Steak which was also very nice.
We had to leave some space for the cinnamon and icing sugar Zeppoli for dessert – highly recommended!
I always loved the diversity of the menu, and now with the new additions, I will definitely be back to try more dishes!

Great food and wonderful service!
My boyfriend and I have ordered take-out several times from New River Pizza & Grill. Last night we tried the dining room and were very pleasantly surprised by the delicious dishes and the outstanding service. Instead of just sharing a pizza, we decided to try the new Shrimp Cakes appetizer (delicious and flavorful) as well as two of the Italian entrees, Chicken Parmigiana on linguini pasta, and Pork Tenderloin. When we walked in, we were greeted by the friendliest server, offered beverages, and served garlic rolls.. The atmosphere was enjoyable and relaxing. We are so happy that we have found a friendly and affordable restaurant close to home! We will absolutely be enjoying many more meals at New River Pizza & Grill. Very happy!

New menu items are AMAZING!
Far beyond our expectations! Some of the finest food in town. An amazing great local established restaurant with a great chef. It was packed and worth the wait. New seafood risotto was AMAZING! Best garlic rolls and fresh pasta in town at very reasonable prices. Try the zeppolis for desert (a hot Italian donut) with powered or cinnamon sugar mmmm good!

A GREAT find
This restaurant is a wonderful surprise. While it appears to be just another pizza place, they have a tremendous chef and prepare great meals. The items on their weekend brunch are totally unexpected and as good as there is to be found anywhere. Who would expect to find Eggs Benedict on Shrimp Cakes at a pizza place? While their pizzas are fine, their dinner entrees, such as Seafood Risotto are outstanding! This is definitely a place we will go back to. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful evening at New River Pizza & Grill! I was curious to dine there after some friends had previously been and raved about it. I was not disappointed and am so grateful we have such a local gem that we can meet with family and friends at such an affordable price. The food was exceptional with such variety as pizzas, pastas and subs but also entrees like the pork tenderloin (which I had), that you'd easily find in a fine dining restaurant. Seriously I have no doubt that there is variety to suit everyone's taste buds! And the staff were so friendly and attentive, overall a really nice experience.

Superb italian food, pizzas too
Love it but dont really want to tell everyone or it will get too busy!!
Smaller spot with good pizzas and generous, fresh salads. Modern, but not pretentious. As a single diner, I was very comfortable and got great service. Perfect for a nice meal at your own pace after a long workday.

Service and food were great.
The atmosphere was excellent.
Brillant experience -an absolute pleasure.

Love this place. Took out of town friends and no one had even an average meal. The food is great (love the garlic rolls). Mike was our waiter-always a treat! Makes you feel welcome and takes wonderful care of you. All the waitstaff is good, but he's my favorite.

Great NY Style Pizza!
Loved the food! Fresh ingredients, excellent service! Went back the next night! Awesome little Italian Restaurant! Best pizza we've had since leaving NY! Can't wait to come back on our next vacation!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best and not super expensive pizza! (I'm Italian) and much more, they could not have been more accommodating!

Perfect Italian Food
Great service. Best pizzas in Fort Lauderdale. Good options of Salads and Pasta. Reasonably priced wines. Real cozy and friendly atmosphere! Worth a visit!

I found this place from the reviews on Open Table. They were all right. This place is fantastic. Everything is made from scratch. Prices are very reasonable for the food you are getting. We went with a party of 10 and the bill, with the tip, was $200. This included appetizers and dinner. Not only would I recommend this restaurant, but it is now on my go to list. Enjoy.

Able to satisfy everyones needs
When ordering, one can specialize to their liking. The food was great and I would recommend others to this restaurant.

tiny but great
tiny but great service, food and price. Hungry this is your place
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is unique, reasonably priced (under $ 15.00) Food is very attractively presented and tasty - everything one wants. sestaurant has a nice ambiance. Don't be fooled expecting to be in a pizza parlor. this it is not.
The owners are very community minded. On this visit they were giving a percentage of their sales to the Middle School Youth Group at our Church . . . St Anthony Catholic Church.
I have dined on other occasions for pizza or a casual dinner. this was my first Brunch experience. I will be back. And suggest that you try it!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome - Again
Tried the chicken Philly this time. I have three words to describe it - A-MAZ-ING. I really love this place. Everything from scratch. Everything fresh. Moderate pricing.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The garlic rolls, salad and pizza I got was delicious. The waiter, Roman, was very attentive and made sure are drinks never ran out. He was friendly and funny. Good amount of food for the price.

Love New River Pizza. Just came back to this neighborhood after being out in Sunrise. Really enjoying their new location. The food is amazing and the servers are very attentive. I was very pleased.

Everything was wonderful. We have been going almost every Friday since we moved our office back to Ft. Lauderdale. Very enjoyable! Keep up the good work!

Friends night out
We all enjoyed the causal atmosphere of this place which easily accommodated our party of 10. Our waiter was efficient and friendly.We will definitely ask for Mike again He even changed the channel on one of the TVs to a kid's show for the sake of the youngest person at our table even though she was somewhat content to watch the chefs in the glass enclosed kitchen.The salad was crisp and well dressed, the eggplant parmesan was tasty, and lightly breaded with a bit of a crunch. The mini pesto pizza would make a tasty appetizer for 3-4. We all enjoyed the Merlot wine and beer. We all look forward to returning to try other choices on the well rounded menu.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another wonderful experience
What a great restaurant! I keep going back because the food is wonderful, reasonably priced and the service is great! Keep up the good work!

Better every time!
We have eaten at New River Pizza and Grill numerous times. These guys started at take out a dozen years or so but eating right there now that they have a dining room is amazing. Their being just south of downtown Fort Lauderdale makes it very accessible for great home-style Italian food. They have numerous specialty items on the menu in addition to their pizza and pasts offerings. Service and quality all get 5 Stars for us! Must have the fresh garlic rolls and for dessert you MUST try the Zepoles which are a fresh hot Italian donuts covered either with powdered or cinnamon sugar. Save room and make it a point to have them!!!.
They have a late night special after 9pm where house wine and beers are only $2!!
Keep up the great work

Excellent service and food
Excellent service and food quality as always. Roman was wonderful! All of your servers are top-notch. The food is always delicious and we never have a hard time getting in and out quickly since we are on our lunch break. Our favorite place to go for our Friday lunch outings.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
You will be thrilled you went!
These guys do a great job with both the traditional Italian fare combined with healthy salads and alternative dishes. The pizza and garlic rolls are some of the best you will ever have anywhere! Save room for ZEPOLIES that are basically hot square donuts covered with cinnamon or powdered sugars making for an exceptional desert..... They are simply fantastic.
Best kept secret is after a movie or theater they have a happy hour menu where house wine and bottled beers that are only $1.50 after 9pm until closing. Best deal in town for sure!! Food and service just keep getting better

Good date night spot
This restaurant is small, intimate, but still hip and modern. The food was very good and our server was very attentive. The pizzas are very big and delicious. I would definitely go back. Plus it isn't too far from downtown should you want to go out for a drink after dinner.
