Pizzeria Oceano in Lantana deserves its own thread... so here it is.
It’s easily in the top 5 pizzas of my life.
For what it’s worth, I grew up on Long Island, went to school in Brooklyn, and worked in NYC. So I’ve gone through some pretty good pizza.
I’ve had much of the best of NYC including Rays, Johns, Keste, etc. And more recently, in Florida, I’ve enjoyed Harry’s, of course Anthony’s, Tucci’s, Nick’s, Scuola Vecchia, and more.
I know I have missed some SoFla stars. That's been well covered in other threads, for example this one with 66 posts:
But Pizzeria Oceano has got to be at or very close to the top. And I know some of the most respected experts on this board agree.
I’ll write more in later posts. And I hope others do too (Erica?).
But for now:
The service is friendly and excellent. I saw zero “Food Nazi” encounters. As I was sitting at the counter, a farmer walked in with boxes of fresh local greens (arugula, basil, etc) and delivered them to the kitchen. Minutes later, I was enjoying some of the basil on my slices.
Just check out these photos!!!
