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

Well, I've tried several other pizza joints around this area! By far, the best pizza around is BOCA LUPO! The pizza comes out exactly the way you order it. I like my pizza browned but not burnt, or crust like a cracker. The sauce is real sauce, not canned tomato paste. The crust is firm but not overly chewy. All... More

Having been here before and liking he pizza, we decided to come here for dinner. Tonight there is a full moon. Why is that important? Because in full moon nights, large pizzas are half price. A small Greek and a small Cesar salad plus a large pizza was around $20.00. Go here for food food.

But , hey 1 more try, NO more tries. Pizza order screwed up, calzone not cooked cold inside. How they get rated... More

Visited Bocca Lupo for the first time this week. We were four of us and first time visitors to this restaurant. Restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. Our waiter Sam was the best, very attentive, explained the menu offerings and specials for the night. We each ordered the personal coal fired pizza's all different varieties of toppings and options.
