Had the vegan pizza and it may as well not exist. It was gross and should not be on the menu. Note to the restaurant just don’t offer anything vegan if the option is for food that taste like cardboard. Because I used to love the Bianca Pizza here I was so excited for a Vegan option but I really just wished they hadn’t. Probably won’t eat here again. Also my server was just not friendly and seemed unaware of what was going on. The host however was very pleasant and engaged us. The polenta taste like it was frozen prior and not completely fried before it was brought out to us. It was luke warm with cold sauce. Also they serve it super bland here and without even salt or pepper it was a waste of $10. I don’t buy the “this is how Italians eat it” as I adored the fried polenta I ate in Tuscany last summer. Also I ate it at Chima’s the weekend prior and it was delicious. This was Just subpar all around and really disappointing to someone that really supports recommends the JEY restaurant group. Left filled with regret and unfortunately still hungry.

Always a good time! Nona’s Sunday Gravy is delicious and enough food for a table (literally, three of us shared it!). The speakeasy in the back is also a cool place to lounge and enjoy a good strong drink

My wife and I had dinner at pizza craft last night before the show at the BrowardCenter. We chose this place for convenience and they take reservations. When we arrived the hostess was pleasant and seated us promptly. The server was polite and efficient.
We started with the cauliflower appetizer which was tasty but not hot enough.. a reoccurring theme all night. Then we shared the Sunday gravy which again wasn’t hot enough even after it was sent back.
Overall my wife and I felt that the food was just ok and that they were more concerned with turning tables than putting out hot food IMO.

Went there before a play. We had a reservation and was seated promptly. We were approached by our server quickly ordered a drink and the meatball app to start. It was delicious. The red sauce it rested in was great. The Caesar salad was also very good as was the chicken Marsala. Will definitely be back to try the pizza.
Most importantly we made it to the play on time.

Pizza Craft has a nice twist on your everyday Italian fare. Their oxtail lasagna was not only interesting but tasty. The giant meatballs were savory and well-prepared. Our other family members ordered a cheese pizza which they found hot and flavorful. The table also shared an order of fried calamari which was cooked and spiced perfectly. Portions are just right. Our waiter, Ben, was very nice and efficient.

We had requested an inside table, but there were none available when we got there. We ended up outside, which was fine as that night was breezy.
The waitress was amazing, even though they were very busy.
The food is usually amazing here, tonight it wasn’t great. The pasta sauce was very watery and the pasta was not fully cooked. We were heading to the broward center so we didn’t want to wait for it to be redone. The pizza was good, but the two pasta dishes were not at all.
I chalk it up to how busy they were, as I’ve never had a problem here before.

pC makes its own pastas and bufalo mozz in house. Their meatballs were excellent with a fine texture and sauce. The roasted cauliflower sits atop a tasty alfredo type sauce. The house salad was very disappointing because it was drenched in a too vinager-y dressing and the freshness of the veg didn’t come thru. Also it is open air and very noisy. Our server Francesca was very attentive even though she had many other tables in the restaurant.

We love Pizza Craft and visit every time we go to Fort Lauderdale! The food is consistently delicious, the ambiance outside is perfect and the service is always fantastic! We highly recommend the Polenta Fries, I always crave them! Any time we are looking for somewhere to take out of town guests, we take them to Pizza Craft!

Our food came out cold. We were going to order the meatballs as an appetizer, but the waitress recommended the crazy bread, so we ordered that instead. The meat inside was tasty, but the center was cold, which was very unappetizing. The pizza my daughter and I ordered to share, was okay, not terrible, just not worth coming back for. My husband ordered the oxtails, but wasn't impressed either. The waitress was nice, but not very attentive.

Pizza is great. Brick oven if that's your thing. Happy hour pricing. But the Manager Ricky is everything that's wrong with human beings, and the service is spotty, and that's being nice. No real ambiance to speak of, wobbly tables, not much better than your average pizza place. Without getting into too much detail. The hype around sitting there eating your pizza is way over-rated. Get your pizza to go and eat it at home.

Our 4 meals were each served at a different time. Two of us were eating while two had no food. Another dish was served. The last meal was served after the two were done eating.!!!!!!!
My chopped salad was wilted & soggy.
The pizzas were great.
The server never mentioned the wine special until we asked about a happy hour price.

A pleasant surprise. We were looking for a casual Italian restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere and good food and we found it at Pizza Craft. We sat outside on a nice night and the staff was very welcoming and gracious. We started with a tasty bottle of Pino Grigio which was served cold. Our entrees of Chicken Milanese, Chicken Francese and Rigatoni Vodka were are delicious, served hot with hearty portions. The restaurant is on an active street with lots of bars but we found it entertaining and all part of the ambience. We finished dinner at about 10pm and were told that the area gets loud and crazy at about 10:30pm. We look forward to returning to Pizza Craft the next time we are in the area.

For pre-theater dining we have always really liked this place but this time was a bit of a disappointment. We had made reservations and when we got there there was still a 20 minute wait. We were placed at a table by the street side that was really wobbly and couldn’t get anyone to help us for a good 10 minutes to have this taken care of. After finally making our food selections are we just came to our table to take our order and advised us that almost all the things we wanted to order we’re no longer available. We settled on our selections and they were sub par. The pizza was really oily and the chicken parm was overcooked and rubbery. We are not ones to complain but did tell the waitress about the chicken and her answer was, “ok. I’m sorry”.... since we had to go to a show there was no time to order something else so we told her not to worry about it. The bill came and she did charge us for the chicken Parm and we didn’t complain but thought that was kind of not OK. Maybe busy weekends are just too much for them but we wil not be going back pre theatre.

We chose this restaurant because it was walking distance to Broward Performing Arts and it always seems crowded on show days. The service was ok (not great) but the food was mediocre. My pasta Bolognese was one step above a canned pasta with meat sauce. In addition the wines were overpriced and the pour was poor (I complained to the waiter and he was able to get more wine added to the glass, but really....for $15/per glass??!!)

They seated us right away. Very busy for theater night. Service slow- glad we came early. manager or owner was yelling at the staff. It was really uncalled for. You can take someone aside and tell them quietly to do whatever. I felt sorry for the staff. We had chicken parm w spaghetti. Chicken was good. Spaghetti was not cooked fully ( ala dente) Waitress took it off the tab. Buratta was excellent. Yes I’d recommend it as it’s usulally good.

My first experience was great! So I had expectations to experience the same. However, it was a disappointing experience. We ordered a Cheese Pizza with basil on the side (my son doesn't like it. But, I do) and Calamari.

The pizza had to be returned because they didn't do what was asked.

The calamari had more breadcrumbs then actual calamari. Not the way I like them.

Overall, I didn't enjoy my meal and I was still hungry. I had to buy a snack at Broward Center for the Performing Arts before watching Hamilton. I don't think I'll choose them.
