Thank you for taking the time to rate us on OpenTable! We can't be advising our guests of big portions, as that would be very offensive to some. If you notice throughout most of our reviews (and thousands of pictures on different platforms), big potions are mentioned, and our concept is based on this, so most of our guests are aware. Thanks once again. Best wishes

Food is excellent, tasty, and abundant . Some of the plates can be sheared. It is a place to go, repeat and promote among friends. ANITA, the lady owner, is very friendly and attentive. All personnel is well trained and very gentle. Don’t miss it. Don’t forget to ask for the shrimp cakes, they are delicious!

I've been to Crust three times, and every time, the food has been superb and the wait staff has been wonderful. Whether it's a small groups or a group as large as 18, they have delivered a terrific meal. Every aspect of their menu is excellent; from salads, to pizzas, to pasta, to meat and fish, and to desserts. You would think when it comes to delicious, fresh food that's made to order at reasonable prices, the portions would be on the small side, but they are large and there's always enough to take home for another special meal. Crust has become my go-to restaurant, especially for out-of-town guests.

We went to crust as a family to celebrate my birthday. The service couldn't have been nicer, especially to my two under-7 children. Lovely atmosphere, reminded me of dining in family-run establishments in Italy. The food was freshly made and delicious. The portions are massive and perfect for sharing family style. We carried home doggy bags and enjoyed the food the following day too. Celebrated a wonderful birthday here and looking forward to visiting again. Loved the finishing touch of the owner/ hostess pouring a toast for us at the end of the meal!

This is our second time in just a few months at Crust. We drive almost an hour to get there from Broward & it is totally worth it! The food is delicious, portions are huge, staff & owners are the most friendly & hospitable people. You can truly tell they appreciate their customers & it shows in every thing they do. Highly recommend them & we will definitely be back again soon!

Excellent hidden gem by the river. The food is great🍽, the atmosphere and customer service is better than a 4 star Reataurant. I believe in trying out the places and not judge someone else’s comments. I encourage anyone to go and see it for yourself, believe me; you will not regret it. The owners wife welcomes you with open arms.

I honestly wanted to love this restaurant. But I didn’t.... the ambience was nice and the service was incredible. The owner was so nice and welcoming. With that said, the food was just ok. The portions are huge which is good if you eat a lot or like leftovers, but the taste was just average. There was nothing about the flavor that couldn’t be duplicated at home. In fact, we saw a tub of Poly-O ricotta and were a little annoyed. It wasn’t inexpensive and I feel that for what we paid, the food should’ve been homemade style. As I said, it was average. It wasn’t awful, it just wasn’t worth the expense.

Didn’t think pizza was that well done. Though the truffle pizza was really good not the best ever.
Service was great
The primavera risotto was not good
Their portions are incredibly huge.
My wife loved their tiramisu.
Valet parking $6.
Probably will not return.
