On rte. 72 in Manahawkin Former Francesco's Pizza owners have returned to open a new shop, Brazzi Brick Oven Pizza. Please do yourself and your family a favor by avoiding this place. There are many other pizza places around here you can trust.

I had worked for these people a long time and I would never let my family eat their food. I am also one of the many employees they stole hard earned money from never to see a dime of to this day.

If you are considering eating here you must read this.

Let it be known that Former Francesco's owners have set up shop in our town again. The new place looks much more fancy, they were probably able to afford so many extras because when they left town last year they stole many employees hard earned money.

That's right. I used to work there and whenever I run into someone else I used to work with they say the same thing, that they didn't get the money owed to them either. It was hard news to break to my family I wonder how hard it was for the others.

There are plenty of horrors I have wittnessed at this place but I cannot share them here. Let me just say I wouldn't wish their food on my worst enemy.

The area is FULL of delicious and trust worthy pizza places, please choose ANY one of them over this one. These guys maintain the illusion of quality by charging the customer more than their competitors. Don't be fooled.

Does everybody see this? Would anyone but a person with a vested interest in this place do so much to defend it? I am no coward I have stepped up to let people know the truth and by the looks of it it is working out great.

I have never been to Brazzi's and dont pay attention to reviews..I will go there and judge for myself...I did like the foods at Francesco's..and if its the same people, they were always did the right thing by me (always consistant)...So Iam going go this weekend. If they are good I will be back..if not I willnot...I suggest everyone do the same. And these two knuckle heads going back and forth need to growup.

WOW! there is some heated debate about this place...I recently ate at Brazzi's with my family and my experience was great. The food and service were really good and the atmosphere was very nice. I really enjoyed the pizza! We will be back!:) Try it for yourself you will not be disappointed!:)

I too used to be a regular at Francescos. I used to like the food, but I thought they were gone for good. When I heard they were back in town I went online to look for the number and I saw all of these sites saying how they didn't pay their employees. I don't know if these claims are true or not but I am not going to take the chance. I won't be going to Brazzi's and I have told my mother and her friends not to go either.

My wife and I recently ate here after visitng our friends in Harvey Cedars. We both love New York style pizza and just had to give this place a try. We live in Georgia so don't get good pizza very often so we had very high hopes. Unfortunately the food was not very good. The pizza was almost raw and tasted like straight up yeast. We couldn't bring ourselves to finish even half of our small pie. They were nice and offered us a box to bring the rest home which we of course declined. We ended up getting fast food on our way back home. In my opinion the place is nice, but the food is lacking. I am not kidding when I say Pizza Hut makes a more authentic and enjoyable pie. We hope to return to the NJ coast soon, but we will not return to Brazzi.

I,felt the same way, Aruthur.

I'm very particular on neapolitan, wood fired pizza....I'd even call myself an expert. I've had the best and the authentic, and I know what to expect. It failed on all fronts. The pie was not cooked properly, the sauce tasted like ketchup, and it was just a disappointing experience, which is saying a lot because I was yearning for a glimmer of hope that there might be a decent wood fired pizza somewhere close by.

The only edible thing was the fresh mozzarella, but it's hard to appreciate when the rest of the pie is close to inedible.

Aruthur, the best interpretation of NY style pizza I've had down here is from a place called Villagios. I can't say much except that it's very well made, very tasty, and very addictive. There is something about their crispy crust and healthy drizzle of olive oil that creates a very tempting pie.

I ate at Brazzi's this evening and had a wonderful experience. So much so that I felt compelled to share my pleasure with others. I'm so surprised to see all the posts as I thought I would be one of the first to write in. My husband and I ordered a brick oven pie to start, a chicken scarperello and linguini with clams for dinner. I must say everything was delicious. I would absolutely return and suggest others try it for themselves.

Have you ever had an authentic neapolitan, wood fired pizza to compare it to? If you had, you'd find they are not one in the same.

I don't live in the South Jersey area, but come down for the summers and work. I have not had any problems with them and they are very nice people, the food is great and I just don't get all these negative reviews. It must be competitors. Because all the customers that leave there love it.
Why Don't you just go up there and discuss this with the owners instead discussing your problems over the computer?.... I'd get in touch with them. Maybe there was a mailing issue, or they don't have a number to contact you. I'd discuss your issues with the owners. Try Brazzi's for yourself and make your own review.

I'm first generation Italian in America and I have family in Naples, Italy that I visit every other summer. I've had many pizza's cooked in their own brick oven which is built into their home.(FYI- this is how it's done in Italy) Please don't try to school me on pizza especially on Neopolitan style.

Tell you the truth I think that all the positive reviews are the owners or their family. Who else would make their user id "happy brazzi customer". Seems to me like every time someone posts a review saying that they legitamitely tried and didn't like it, two more raving positive reviews fly in over night. I am no competitor and I am no pizza critic, but I can tell you that I didn't care for Francescos and I am not going to eat at brazzi regardless of these posts. If anon and nolan are telling the truth I encourage them to keep it up because if my speculation is correct then I can see for myself how insulting and uncouth theses people really are. Calling these people idiots and saying no one on this forum matters is really insulting. The fact you were demanding they reveal their full names is downright scary to me.

1st generation, huh? So you just left Italy and have lived there for a portion of your life? I get the impression you're not first generation. The fact you can't even spell neApolitan correctly furthers my suspicion you are BSing everyone here. Furthermore, your response sounds typical of someone trying to one-up a legitimate opinion. "Well my family is from Italy, therefore I'm correct." Just so you know, their brick oven is not imported, nor is it built to traditional specifications. It was made by a chimney company in Tuckerton.

So you're willing to admit you have not had an authentic neapolitan pizza to compare to Brazzi? Have you compared it to Da Michele in Naples, the former Una Pizza Napoletana in New York, or the great stuff coming out of Motorino or L'Asso? The fact of the matter is that it's not an authentic wood fired pizza, and just because it comes out of a fireplace made of brick doesn't make it so. The style is dependent on the temperature, fire management, the heat distribution in the dome of the oven....something the Brazzi staff just doesn't get. They stick a few logs in the oven and call it "authentic wood fired."

So you have been schooled in neapolitan pizza, because not only do you not understand what it is and is not, you can't spell the style correctly.
