Mimmo’s Ristorante Italiano — Pizza at Destin’s Finest Italian Spot

With vacation time winding down on the Florida Panhandle, my search for Destin-area pizza to try did not look at all promising. After checking out the websites of a few pizza joints, the pictures I saw of their wares bought forth zero interest. Plain and simple, the Snob doesn’t like fat sloppy pies full of […]

Fat Clemenza’s in Destin, FL— Pizza You Will Love!

If you have been following the Snob’s travels, we last left off with more pizza to discover in the Destin area of the Florida Panhandle. On the hit list was a place I drove by a few years ago while on a quick ride through Destin proper. Having followed the Snob’s advice about how to […]

Pazzo Italiano Destin—Restaurant Pizza at the Florida Beach!

Since moving to Tennessee in 1998, the Snob family has visited the Florida Panhandle most every year, sometimes going both in the spring and late summer. When the kids were still young Snobs, we visited the Destin side of what we Southerners call the “Redneck Riviera.” Later, when it became just Mrs. Pie and me, […]

JB’s Pizza to Po’boys in Destin, FL—A Good Spot for Vacation Pizza

I pretty much had given up on pizza during my recent Destin family vacation. That was until my nephew, Tayster, came home one night all excited about a place he discovered. The Snob had previously noticed the tiny JB’s Pizza to Po’boys storefront tucked in between Badass Coffee and a Dairy Queen on the main […]

Grimaldi’s in Miramar Beach Florida—The Snob’s First Outside of Brooklyn

Elsewhere in this blog, you can read The Pizza Snob’s synopsis of the history of legendary-pizzamaker Patsy Grimaldi as well as my review of the current Brooklyn location. While that place still offers an amazing example of coal-fired pizza, in recent years, Grimaldi’s has also created a chain of 50 locations over a dozen states. […]

La Famiglia—Destin FL Italian Restaurant Makes a Good Pie for the Beach!

Since our kids have grown and flown the coop, Mrs. Pie and I have moved our annual beach trips on the Florida Panhandle from Destin to the less-crowded and not-as-commercial confines further east on Highway 30-A. However, a family gathering this year in Destin brought us back to our old stomping grounds in “Ground Zero” […]

Ciao Bella Pizza—Tasty, But Not Very Italian Pizza in Destin, FL

Since moving to Tennessee in 1998, our family has vacationed on the Florida Panhandle just about every year. Back when the kids were still with us, Destin was our primary beachfront, primarily for all the activities it offered. Now empty-nesters, we’ve since moved east to the more subdued adult-centric 30-A area. This year, Mrs. Pie […]

Florida’s 30-A – Pizza on the Panhandle

The Snob can never take a total vacation, so when he and Mrs. Pie headed south to the Florida Panhandle for a week’s stay, he naturally saw it as an opportunity to explore the local pizza joints. After 15 years of vacating to this beautiful place, we are convinced that there are no finer beaches […]
