Our Story

Family Always Comes First.

Established in 2019, The Piefather is a pizza & Italian restaurant concept, created & curated by
James Beard nominated Chef José Mendín
& Chef Santo Agnello.

Our customers are the reason that every dish is truly inspired by a passion for creating unique, flavorful dishes. In line with those strong values that separate us from your average pizza shop, every item on our menu is crafted to make you feel like a true part of the Piefather family!

Quality is at the core of every menu item we create. We believe quality ingredients are the pillars on which an unforgettable dish is created. That is why we stay away from any low quality, or processed ingredients. and Whether it’s our signature house-made “Don” specialty sauce, imported Italian toppings, or our original fresh dough, we infuse our passion, imaginations, & attention, into every single dish we serve.

Only the Best

Slicin’ it up

Yo! #ThePiefather is slicin’ up Fort Lauderdale, every Thursday through Sunday. Come by our new home, located inside The Wharf Fort Lauderdale, & take a bite out of a pizza you absolutely cannot refuse!


The Piefather

Our signature pizza you can’t refuse!
This pie features braised short rib, black truffle, taleggio & parmesan cheeses. This pie is definitely a crowd favorite. Just one bite of this savory pizza will show you exactly why we gave it the honor of sharing our name!


Kale Caesar Salad

Who says the healthy option can’t
also be a delicious one?
Our fresh kale Caesar salad includes creamy garlic dressing, freshly baked brioche croutons, parmesan cheese, & is topped with boquerones. Even if you aren’t big on salad you’ll want to try this one trust me…it won’t “kale” you.


Nonna’s Beef Shortrib Meatballs

Just like nonna used to make!
Well…not exactly.
Try this twist on classic Italian meatballs.
Shortrib meatballs, served over a bed of
house-made pomodoro sauce,
and topped with ricotta cheese. 


The Corleone

The favorite pizza of The Don himself.
This pie is the perfect balance of savory & sweet! Featuring fresh house-made pomodoro, salami pepperoni, topped with mozzarella cheese, & meatball crumbs, then drizzled with local honey. This pie is the most popular choice. Take 1 bite and you’ll see why!


The Nutella Pie

Wait till you get your just desserts!
Every meal, should have a sweet finish. Our specialty Nutella Pie will take you on a hazelnut infused journey, with flavors rich enough for the Don. Featuring fresh baked dough topped with Nutella and powdered sugar, this pie will satisfy any size sweet tooth you can throw at it!


The Piefather Arancini

One of our most unique menu items.
Enjoy our specialty arancini balls filled with cheese & salami risotto arancini, truffle oil, then rolled in crispy Italian bread crumbs. 
Meant to share, but don’t get too greedy or you may end up sleeping with the fishes.
