A newly fired pizza can burn both mouths and professional bridges. Take a bite of red-hot flavor with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of pizzas, appetizers, and more from Speranza Pizzeria in Boca Raton.
Since opening in March 2010, Speranza has built its bubbly reputation around its menu of personalized service, blue-ribbon ingredients, and fresh pizza forged in 800-degree wood-burning ovens. Owners Mario and Renata Alto channel their passion for pies into more than a dozen gourmet dough-saucers. The pizzeria offers startling pizza combinations, such as the Portuguese, which melds ham, baked eggs, black olives, and onions with classic fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, and parmesan (starting at $18.40). As pizzas flash-bake within four minutes, speed-nosh on starters of calamari fritti ($11.95) or hulking insalatas di campo ($11.90), brimming with enough greens to feed families, giants, and families of giants. On Speranza's signature plate of lobster ravioli ($17.95), crustaceans stuff themselves into pasta pillows for a slumber party with ricotta, creamy lobster sauce, and fresh basil. Unwind postmeal with a digestif that warms senses, souls, and tautly stretched pizza bellies.
OpenTable reviewers give Speranza an average of 3.5 stars:
