Good Italian in West Broward?

  • 6

Yeah, yeah, yeah...we're going to see Andrea Bocelli later this month and I want to make a whole production of the night. Starting with some stellar Italian food.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

All I can think of right now are chains and I'd rather not go down the Buca, Olive Garden or Carraba's path if I can avoid it.

Thanks much!

  1. Try Vigneto's in Plantation. Really nice atmosphere and delicious food. My favorite is the asiago gnocchi with vodka sauce.

    1. Vignetto's is good, I've been a couple of times. I also really like Tarantella in Weston - the brick oven pizzas are great! I've also heard Josef's in Plantation is really good and I have been meaning to go check it out. I'd also recommend Milano Italian Grill on Commercial and Pine Island. It's a very small pizzeria/restaurant. Nothing out of the ordinary but really good food.

      1. re: nmurawsk

        I don't dine in that area often but I have to second the "rumors" about Josef's in Plantation. I have never been there but it is very high on my list of places to go to. The reviews have always been excellent.

      2. On Univ. Drive, just south of Griffin Rd on west side, in Davie. Specials Sun-Tues. Consistently good food, nice size portions. Fresh ingredients, well prepared. Service is good. Have never been disappointed. Reasonably priced.
