I asked for a well-done pizza on my previous visit. My advice: do NOT! It was over cooked and dried out. In my recent visit, I did not request "well-done." Much to my surprise, this pizza was tasty and one of the best in FL.

We discovered Bocca Lupo over three years ago and visit it regularly while wintering in the area. Service is friendly and the pizza is great. We have yet to find another pizza place as good in Florida. We always order a large so that we have left overs to take home!

Stopped here for lunch. I had the 10" personal pizza with one topping, my wife had the antipasto salad. The pizza is New York style (thin crust). My wife hated the salad, it had green beans, cauliflower, and black olives, and no meat! With ice tea, the total bill was $26. Waitress was very nice and attentive.

We have visited Borge the North Port and Port Charlotte locations. NP does not have a gluten free option so hard to go there however the PC location you can order take out from Donatos next door. This pizza is the best I've had and my family and friends love it too. It saddens me that I cannot eat the... More

The kids love the dough they get to play with while we wait for the food. There does need to be a more creative kids menu ....Kind of pricey but yummy food.

The food is great, the atmosphere is fun & the service is prompt. There's always a special of some sort. My family gets together & we order 3 or 4 different pizzas (they're all delicious) & the kids get a piece of dough to make their own & can watch the pizzas being thrown & baked. The antipasto is wonderful.... More

Totally amazed by this pizza place. They cook pizza in a 1200 degree coal fired oven. The cooks toss the dough way up in the air! Two of us got the 14" special which includes a salad to share & a big plate of garlic knots. As hungry as we were, we didn't make a dent in the food. The... More
