Fat Clemenzas is a joke. The food we received was nothing short of frozen tv dinners with some canned sauce served over the top. The waiter had no knowledge of the menu but could definitely point out the highest priced item. The management was also rude & unhelpful. (At one point the manager was so rude to a man in... More

Fat Clemenza's food is out of this world!!!!! The chicken picata is the BEST in town, and the pasta Bolognese may be the best I've ever had EVER!!!!!!!! The pizza is amazing as well as the garlic bread knots!!!! Everything I've eaten there has been absolutely delicious! Everyone who visits Destin should try Fat Clemenza's!!! It is soooooooo YUMMY!!!!!!! :)

Fat Clemenza's is a fantastic Italian Restaurant -- I am a frequent visitor and am never disappointed. Excellent food, reasonable prices and friendly -- always consistent! Can't ask for much more. While is may be smaller in size, it certainly offers a wonderful ambiance. GREAT JOB Clovis and Joy!

Not only is the pizza the best we've had, but management and staff are amazing! Very friendly and eager to please. And if you want something more than pizza, it's safe to say that they offer some of the best Italian food around. Highly recommend!

Five star for food, wine and service. See you next year. My fav was the pizza with sauce, fresh mozzarella and basil. The dipping sauce for the warm bread is addicting.

We first tried Fat Clemenza's a year ago and thought it was some of the best Italian food we've had in a small US city. I guess we would be considered "regulars" as we go nearly every week, usually after work so we have not experienced crowds but it does get very busy later so reservations are a good idea.... More
