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

We went for lunch one day and the service was good and the food was decent. We ordered the garlic tools to start and they were great! They are drenched in garlic butter and wonderful! We then ordered pepperoni and mushroom pizza (our favorite kind) and it was good. The brick oven is really amazing and we could see them... More

All pasta is housemade as is the dough for the pizza. Great little Italian place and the food was awesome! Would definitely go back!

Since this restaurant is located in a small strip mall, it is easy to overlook but going inside is a nice Godfather-themed dining experience. Great pasta and pizza.

The food here is always fresh and delicious. The staff is hit or miss, but I've never had a 'bad' server, just sometimes they aren't as good as usual. I like the pizza and the pasta. I wish they had a capri salad, since I really love that as an Italian appetizer, but I won't hold it against them.

This place was expensive and the food was not good. They hardly gave you any toppings on it. Save your money and go some where else

My family and I love this restaurant!!! The food is delicious and the service is fabulous!!! We had to go there twice the last time we visited Destin. My son, who is 13 and extremely picky, says this is one of his favorite restaurants of all time. The lasagna is my absolute favorite and as an appetizer, the garlic rolls... More
