We have been in Destin less than a week and have eaten here twice. The Wood Fired Pizza is excellent and made great leftovers. Also had Veal Picatta great with their Galric Rolls. The owner was there both nights to oversee all and Victor our waiter was helpful. Can we go for a third night....I think so!

First time dining at Fat Clemenzas, and really enjoyed it. Have had great seafood while in Destin, and wanted something a little different, so read the reviews on Trip Advisor, and was not disappointed. Great atmosphere, a very fun "mob-like" setting, with great pizza and good service and a very convenient location on 98. I will definitely go there again.

Fat Clemenza's is our go to place when we get to Destin every year. We have never skipped going there in 10 years. This time, we ordered a cheese pizza and a pepperoni/sausage pizza along with a house salad. The salad was good but would have been much better with more than a couple olives and cucumbers. The pizzas were... More

We have eaten here 3 times and I feel guilty that I haven't written a review already. Our first visit was July with another couple and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals, it was a first time visit for all. We've gone back and will continue. We have tried several dishes, have loved them all. I almost avoided this restaurant because... More

Wonderful Pizza. Lots of interesting combinations that I had not seen before. We ate here twice during our vacation week in Destin. Good quick take out service. Small restaurant so get there early or have reservations. Take out is easy and quick.

Great food and service. A good list of daily specials. A tight space. They take reservations, and it's best to get them! Highly recommended!

My sister and I ate at fat clemenza's during our recent stay in destin. Neither of us had eaten here before. The restaurant was small but we were seated almost immediately. I really liked the atmosphere. Our service was amazing. They immediately brought us water and made sure our glasses were always full. We ordered a vegetarian pizza, which was... More

This tiny place has the best garlic rolls ever! Pizza and chicken parmigiana was wonderful to. Topped it off with banana nut bread pudding -- cannot wait to go back again!

This is my third time eating here in my last four trips to florida. The only reason it isn't four for fouris I was in panama city on one of those trips. The pizza is the best in the area and served quickly. I also tried a calzone which was equally impressive - a little doughy on the ends but... More

Excellent find. So glad we found this place. Amazing, authentic Italian food and awesome service. Had the gnocchi with saltimbuca (sp?) sauce. I loved that you could get options for different sauces. Also ordered the carmelized onion and Gorgonzola pizza which was to die for. The complimentary bread and dipping sauce...drool. And omg the olive salad plate for 2...wow! Am... More
