Fulvio’s 1900 in Hollywood, Florida: slow-paced fine dining

Fulvio’s 1900 is what a fine dining experience is all about.  This restaurant came highly recommended by friends who enjoy slow- paced eating.   Fulvio’s is located at 1900 Harrison Street in Hollywood, Florida, right at the beginning of Hallendale Road.  In this popular restaurant district, Fulvio’s stands out in lights with its soft-pastel facade, featuring Italian food at its finest.

The ambiance is romantic and classy with white linens adorning the tables.  The walls are decorated in artwork.  There is a  mirrored bar up front which serves wine, beer, and a variety of cocktails.   Meals are  is also served at the bar.


The food is to die for.  One Italian standard, rigatoni with meatballs, sausage and short ribs in a red sauce, is a favorite at Fulvio’s for $25.  This is a very robust dish that will satisfy anyone’s appetite.  Most entrees are around $25.

An interesting appetizer you should look for on the menu is zucchini blossoms battered and lightly sauteed, stuffed with seasoned ricotta cheese.  Simply delicate and delicious to the palate.

Fulvio, Jr. is the executive chef while Fulvio, Sr. is always on hand at the front door to greet his customers and make sure they get the best service available.

It’s not that I don’t love children, having four myself,  but this is not a restaurant for young children.  Fulvio’s  is for a quiet special occasion.  Dress is casual.

After I experienced its ambiance and food, I just  had to pass this fabulous restaurant on to my Striped Pot readers who might be heading to the east coast of Florida in the near future.

By the way, I had the rigatoni standard:   Molto bene!
