La Dolce MidiCi
MidiCi (pictured above), 510 N Federal Hwy., mymidici.com, 954.908.1938
The Neapolitan health-conscious pizza concept by Amit Kleinberger, who was featured in Undercover Boss, brings a taste of Naples (Italy, not Collier County) to Fort Lauderdale. The pizza makers (or pizzaiolos, as they are called in Italian) work to create authentic Neapolitan pizza using natural, high-quality ingredients. Their open, center-staged kitchen format can also serve as entertainment as you indulge in the true taste of a great Italian dish.
