It’s only appropriate that February, the month of love, also means that National Pizza Day (Feb. 9) is upon us.
Show your love for the Italian favorite by dining at one of these five Palm Beach County restaurants on the most important holiday of the year.
Pizza al Fresco
If eating pizza underneath swaying palm trees is up your alley, Pizza al Fresco has just what you need. Fresh thin-crust pies are made to order in a wood-burning brick oven, and you can try combinations like the Tartufo Nero, made with mozzarella and shaved black truffles, or the Palm Beach, which is topped with caviar and smoked salmon.

The newest addition to Clematis Street, MidiCi serves custom-ordered Neapolitan pies in a lively and inviting atmosphere. With specials all week long, it’s the ideal spot to split a pizza with friends, or gobble down the whole pan yourself. The fast-casual setup allows you to pick out your toppings as you wait in line, and within minutes your pizza will be transformed into melty goodness via MidiCi’s signature gold ovens.

Grimaldi’s is a classic favorite in the world of pizzerias. With Brooklyn roots, Grimaldi’s spins pizzas, bakes them in a coal-fired brick-oven and then serves them atop red checkered tables for a retro Italian feel.

City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill
With chef-led artisanal pizza creations and a prime atmosphere for people watching, City Cellar is a perennial favorite. The CityPlace restaurant puts a modern twist on traditional pies—think the Capri, with mission figs, goat cheese and prosciutto, or the classic pepperoni, which is spruced up with Peppadew peppers and arugula. Head to the daily happy hour if you’re into half-price pizzas and a killer wine list.
