Pizzeria Oceano (Lantana)

Posted on January 7th, 2011 · Italian Lantana Pizza


***** Pizzeria Oceano, 201 East Ocean Avenue, Lantana, Florida 33462, (561) 429-5500.

If you are looking for a “red sauce–huge menu–soup/salad/garlic rolls/entree/pasta side” Italian joint…Pizzeria Oceano ain’t for you.

Pizzeria Oceano is a “very interesting” concept. A handfull of appetizers/salads/pizzas–the menu CHANGES every day and a ton of product comes from local farmers. In fact, the “purveyors” names are listed on the menu—sort of like when 5 Guys tells you where the daily potatoes come from. There is very little seating inside, maybe room for 12—there is also an outdoor patio for dining. You can check menu/prices at

Like I said, very limited menu. In fact, the menu states “TAKEOUT IS NOT ALWAYS AVAILABLE & NOT RECOMMENDED.” A husband/wife team–Dak & Martha own the joint, and seem more interested in turning out great food than filling their bank account—let’s call their business-style “novel.”

Anyway…a recent outing had me doing their basic pizza—mozzarella/tomato sauce ($13). Let’s just say, that this thin crust-sweet sauce pizza was off-the chart. Absolutely delicious.
I’ll bet you a quarter, that your favorite neighborhood pizza—doesn’t come close to this slice.

Don’t know Pizzeria Oceano’s business model…What I do know, is- that the fresh made daily mozzarella made Jeff Eats’ 25 minute drive (one way) worth while.

Pizzeria Oceano is open Monday-Saturday 5:50pm-no set closing time…the joint is closed on Sunday
