Way back on July 7, 2013 Jeff Eats’ did a “story” on Bella Amici Pizzeria which literally had just opened for business in the Delray Marketplace. That story is reprinted below.
In a nutshell, that write-up described a “disaster”…no bs-ing here, whenever I’m in the Delray Marketplace and “see” Bella Amici for some reason Jeff Eats thinks of-Lucy and Ethel on the chocolate factory assembly-line. Apparently, I have too much free time on my hands, but that’s what pops into my mind!
Just this very minute, I’m looking at a Bella Amici Pizzeria advertisement in “local” magazine–which in part says and I quote “Introducing The New Bella Amici Under New Management.” Now, nothing for nothing- Jeff Eats is thinking that the original owners sold because the planned goldmine didn’t exactly pan-out (pun intended)!
You guys now know as much as Jeff Eats does-about Bella Amici Pizzeria.
Finally, if you guys just happen to “try”- the new Bella Amici Pizzeria, Jeff Eats would be interested in your thoughts!

Bella Amici Pizzeria is a brand-new “pizza by the slice/order at the counter” joint which opened a couple weeks ago in the Delray Marketplace in Delray Beach.
Got a sneaking suspicion that the guy(s) who own this joint, have never owned/operated a restaurant before…
Not trying to bash anybody or nothing, but a joint that has been open for something like 2-weeks should by now- have paper takeout menus…but it doesn’t.
The joint should have a website (www.bellaamicipizzeria) that has a listed address and menu/prices… but it doesn’t.
The joint shouldn’t have a Facebook Page that lists the store’s telephone number as (561) 705-7777 while its website lists it as (561) 270-3025…but it does.
The joint’s website shouldn’t have two different “sets” of operating hours…but it does.
Tried Bella Amici Pizzeria yesterday- afternoon…order at the counter/pickup at the counter/or brought to your table—let me be as kind as possible, the pizza that Domino’s and Papa John’s delivers to maybe-your house (definitely not mine) is better. Figure a slice is gonna run you $2.50 and a small bottle of Coke- close to 3-bucks. The joint also has chicken wings, sandwiches and salads—the Caesar sitting on the counter for you to “order” looked wilted and disgusting.
Like I said a few seconds ago, the bet here is that the guy(s) who own this joint “haven’t” done this before…looks to Jeff Eats- like they spent a-bundle building a real-nice modern looking pizza joint which by the way has indoor/outdoor patio seating—but the pizza and “that” salad tell me that they better get a REAL PRO in there ASAP before the Titanic takes on too much water.
Jeff Eats would love to tell you what Bella Amici’s hours are…but I’m not sure what they are—they are either Monday-Thursday 10:30am-11:30pm, Friday 10:30am-1:00am, Saturday 10:00am-1:00am, Sunday 10:00am-11:30pm—-or—-Sunday-Saturday 10:30am-midnight.
A long time ago Jeff Eats learned 2-things about the restaurant business…
1. You want to eat in them.
2. You don’t want to own them.
Bella Amici Pizzeria “proves” my point!
