Since 1983, this family-owned and family-operated Boca Raton place located in the back corner of a shopping plaza off Palmetto Park Road has been preparing some of the best red sauce and Italian Sicilian pies around, says Agranoff. It was one of WorstPizza.com's favorite slices when he moved to the area more than 15 years ago, and the pizzeria remains one of his go-to stops for a quick slice to this day. Agranoff's personal favorite here is the upside down pie they call Nona's Sicilian, an off-menu pie you'll need to ask chef-owner Marco Tornabene for by name. It takes about 45 minutes to prepare but is worth the wait, made using only the finest Mozzarella cheese available, layered generously between coatings of Tornabene's grandmother's original pizza sauce. The Sicilian is fluffy yet crisp, and the regular slice crowd is the perfect balance of chew and crust, making Nino’s one of those places that deserves to call itself true New York-style pizza in South Florida.
