Hand-tossed pizza and Italian entrees at Oma’s pizza restaurant.

We found this great hole in the wall pizza place called OMA’s Pizza in Bradenton Beach, FL, on Anna Maria Island. This little eatery is unique to the island as they deliver and stay open until Midnight. Oma’s pizza restaurant is great for a late night bite to eat.

When it comes to finding a place to eat while on vacation, it’s a good idea to rely on personal recommendations.

Omas Pizza and Italian Restaurant

Oma’s Pizza Restaurant is located in the

scenic town of Bradenton Beach, Florida.

While staying at a resort in Sarasota, FL for a week we were driving through the area one late afternoon and spotted the sign. OMA’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant was located only about 20 minutes away.


Since Silke hasn’t had an authentic Italian pizza in years.

I don’t think I have ever had one, I’m more of a Pizzahut guy, so we decided to give it a try. Oma’s Italian restaurant is a cozy little place with booths and hand drawn murals on the walls. It has a charming and authentic Italian feel. On the wall to the left of the counter are pictures of the “World’s largest pizza ever made“.

We were talking about it and wondered what it must have taken to bake a pizza this size. The Italian sounding gentleman behind the counter was quick to note that they had to construct the actual oven before the pizza was even made. No small feat considering this thing looked to be the size of a football field.

We found out later that the owner of Oma’s pizza restaurant is originated from Sicily. Nice!
