Chicago Style pizza

Jenaclaree Jul 19, 2012 07:41 AM

Is there anything sinilar in the Fort Lauderdale/Boca areas? I live in Coconut Creek so anything remotely close would be fine.

I read about Capone's but the mixed reviews kind of discourage me from driving to Hollywood.

      Stuart - would that be Pusateri's? It's a small place on Ocean Blvd. but never have been. It appears Carmella's (not Chicago style) in Stuart has closed.

        Carmela's was on vacation after the 4th. They and the chef's table next doors which is the same family are alive and well!

          To be honest? No. There's just not. Chicago native speaking here. <sobbing>

          Villa Rose is the closest, but still not 100%.
