Umberto’s of Long Island Pizza & Restaurant (Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach)
***** Umberto’s of Long Island Pizza & Restaurant, 23001 State Road 7, Boca Raton, Florida 33428 (561) 477-2500.
Way back, on April 25, 2008 I told you guys about a terrific pizza joint that I had found—Umberto’s in Pompano Beach. Over the past 2- years I’ve been to “this” Umberto’s maybe 5-6 times and the pizza has always been terrific. Real NYC styled pizza, thin-crisp-sweet sauce-oil drips out of the slice when pointed down.
If you do some Googling…you will find that there are literally more Umberto’s in Florida than there are Chins in a Chinese phonebook. Sort of like, Ray’s Pizza in NYC, with everyone claiming to be the “original”…
Anyway…since my writeup in April 2008, the Umberto’s that I am talking about, added 3 more locations. I’ll give you all of the addresses at the end of this story.
Last night I had a “Grandma” pizza…square (but not as thick as a Sicilian pizza) at the Boca Raton joint. Absolutely delicious. One of the best pizzas I’ve had down here in South Florida.
So…I thought I’d remind and update you guys on where you can get some heavy duty delicious pizza. By the way, Umberto’s does salads, pastas, calzones, and other stuff—but the real game here, is outrageously good pizza.
