Great ambience for outdoor dining. I really enjoyed the live guitar music to accompany my brunch with a friend. Food was pretty good, and the service was friendly. Recommend for people looking to brunch in the Fort Lauderdale area.

After 5 days in Ft. Lauderdale my family and I found a bad place to eat. We had reservations and were a little early. We told the waitress we could wait and she said no we have a table now. Once we sat... we sat.. and sat. And waited and waited. 25 minutes later and after being passed by the same waiter 4 times and another waitress 3 times, not one person asked if we wanted drinks or anything about the menu.

We got up and left. Walked past the same person that sat us and she never said a word. My family was well dressed and well mannered. Not sure what the problem was?? They were not overly busy. As far as I’m concerned, you owe me the $6 I paid to park for the 25 minutes we were ignored. Less than 1 star and no recommendations.

The hard part about the menu is, that everything is so good! The ambiance spot on, so are the drinks! Give it up to the staff, as well!!

I do not recommend the pepperoni pizza. The pepperoni has a hot spice added and my kids hated it.

Great service, small but comfortable dining room (additional outdoor seating also available) and exceptional food and beverage. The unlimited Spritz menu was great, offering 4 great options. You could easily try all four. Highly recommend this place.

It was raining and our reservation was outside so we had to sit in the Apothecary side for dinner. That’s more of a lounge setting but very cool inside. The pizza was very good and the service was speedy and the servers very friendly. We will definitely go back!

Our server Nilly was awesome. Kitchen was way behind and more concerned with take out orders. As the slough of delivery drivers stood out front waiting with those of us eating outside it became apparent we were second. Note: maybe the delivery personnel could pickup from a different area than the main entrance; their loitering, phone calls create a very unpleasant ambiance. I understand that Covid has created takeout to be the savior for restaurants but let’s not forget about the patrons who come to the restaurant.

Though the menu is smaller, they kept all the good stuff. The fennel sausage pizza and the carbonara pasta are amazing! The apothecary area is always a fun time! A must go for the DT Fort Lauderdale area.

Amazing service! We came for my Wedding Anniversary!! Everyone was so accommodating and friendly!! We don't get out much with this pandemic, so for us to come out was a big deal and this place upheld the best precautions. We felt so comfortable! The food was amazing!!! We had 4 different pizzas, not one slice was left. The drinks at Apothecary, amazing!!! The firebrick oven is gold!

This was my first time here and all I could think was how have I been missing this for so long!? This was hands down the best pizza I have ever had! Absolutely delicious! Everyone was super friendly, they handled my allergies well and I loved the classic music they were playing. Perfect evening :-)

We went to Pizza Craft before going to see a show at the Broward Center. I left more than enough time to get to the show, but was slightly annoyed when I had to wait 25 minutes for a waiter to stop by the table. Our appetizer came out after our main meal after I had to ask for it twice. Overall the food was good, but the service was horrible.

4th time there. Third time wasn’t very special. Server rushed us to order. Cauliflower appetizer was luke warm and tasteless. Five minutes between two of the four main dishes brought to the table. Food was average all around.
I’m done, won’t be back.

Busy during pre-theater rush. Sat outside, close to street - not our preference, since there are no heaters and it was a cool evening. That being said, dinner was delicious. Our group of 4 shared a salad, fried calamari, a mushroom pizza with truffle oil, delicious pear & cheese stuffed pastas in cream sauce, and an order of Chicken Francese. Everything came out promptly and was delicious. To top off an excellent meal, we celebrated a birthday with the Chef's trio of desserts: Cheesecake, Tiramisu & Mini Cannolis. Pizza Craft has grown into what might be the best restaurant in walking distance to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

We enjoyed the food. We had to have someone go find our waitress once. Little noisy inside but mainly because it is a small area. Will eat outside next time.

I had difficulties with the hostess. Open table stated outside or standard. I said standard. When i got there she said she only had outside. Since I saw 2 or 3 tables inside i argued but then agreed to outside. Then she said someone had taken the outside table. She then reluctantly showed us to a table on top of-the area where the waiters picked u that was not relaxing and very noisy. I showed her another table that was by the window she said no. I argued again and told her we were sitting there. I feel I was being held up for a tip that she did not get. Annoying but in the long run we enjoyed the food just did not enjoy the fight.

Service and food were good. The "Hangover Sandwich" was terrific. My husband ordered the Sopresetta Pizza and, while he enjoyed it, said it was a little too spicy. We sat outside which was pleasant and entertaining. We thought the service was very good. Attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable servers. The bathrooms were a little nasty. Maybe they didn't clean them from the night before? That was disconcerting. I always wonder if the bathrooms look like that, what does the kitchen look like??? Anyway, it was the perfect choice for a pre-ballet meal.
