Tucci’s Fire N Coal Pizza (Boca Raton)

Posted on May 15th, 2009 · Boca Raton Italian Pizza


*****  Tucci’s Fire N Coal Pizza, 50 Northeast 1st Avenue, Boca Raton, Florida 33432 (561) 620-2930.

Regular, Jeff Eats’ readers know that…I love a good pizza. I don’t care if it’s brick-oven, wood oven, coal oven, this oven or that oven…just as long as it tastes good. You also do know that I speak fluent Italian…”Give me two slices and a large Coke.”…don’t you?  Over the past 3-years or so, South Florida has been “hit” with a ton of new pizza joints which play the “coal oven-chicken wings” card…guys like Anthony’s, Coal Mine, Carolina’s, Mona Lisa, just to name a few…and by in large, they are all pretty decent… of course, some are better than others…that’s why Jeff Eats is here.

Anyway…last night, I gave Tucci’s Fire N Coal Pizza in Boca Raton a shot. The joint which has been open for something like 3 months… has indoor seating for about 50 and maybe 10 outside. The menu has 4 appetizers, chicken wings, escarole & beans, eggplant rollatini and sauteed broccoli rabe & sausage…2 salads, Italian and caesar…loads of coal/wood cooked pizzas…2 desserts, cheesecake and cannoli…beer and soda by the bottle.

Let’s make this review easy. I had an Italian salad, margherita/ricotta/sausage pizza, chicken wings. The food was delicious. The salad was cold, fresh, crisp… The chicken wings were seasoned with garlic and carmalize onion, The pizza was thin crusted, crisp, perfectly well-done, right on the money sweet sauce…As for service, pleasant as can be…Price-wise, small wings (10) $9.95, salad which could have feed 3 ($10.95), pizzas–depending on what you order (that’s obvious) start at- small ($13.95)-large ($17.95).

Tucci’s Fire N Coal Pizza is a really good coal-oven pizza/chicken joint.  I enjoyed its food and casual “hole in the wall” atmosphere. By the way, you can check Tucci’s menu/prices at

Tucci’s is open for lunch & dinner Tuesday-Sunday…the joint is closed on Monday.

    Got to agree great pizza, salad and wings.
    ate there for first time tonight and the food was outrageously good.

  2. Paula B says...

    My husband and I really enjoy a good pizza. When it comes to coal oven Tucci’s in Boca Raton makes a terrific pie. When it comes to NY Style Pizza one of our favorites is Thick N Thin also in Boca Raton.

    Can’t think of a better coal fired pizza-chicken. salad restaurant in the area.

      I agree.
      Best pizza, wings and salad.

  4. Mike Z says...

    I eat there pretty regurlarly. Most of the time the pizza is delicious. But every so often it’s a bit too salty. Same thing for the wings usually just right but every now and then too peppery. Just goes to show you that even your favorite pizza place can have a bad day now and then.

    • Gary Goldberg says...

      You are right.
      I probably eat at Tucci’s or takeout twice a month.
      Salad, wings, pizza.
      Every so often I find the pizza a drop salty or the wings tasting too peppery.
      The food is still good but not great like it is the rest of the time.
      I wonder why that happens?

    Delicious pizza.
    Wings were peppery and not too good.

  10. Joey Adama says...

    They have really good pizza.
    Wings are hit and miss.
    If you takeout, check your order before you leave the store. They are very sloppy in filling orders and often leave things out.
