Wow! What a great meal! We didn't have a reservation for 4 adults and 6 kids so we sat outside. It worked better because we didn't have to keep kids as quiet as inside. Garlic knots were fantastic, but small so order accordingly. I had the rigatoni with vodka sauce. Delicious! Tiramisu was also good. Someone else had a calzone... More

Fat's was great. The garlic rolls to start... A must buy appetizer. The jumbo tortellini with veal n beef... Very good... Make sure you get the vodka sauce. It is sooooo good. The pizza was good but I wouldn't make a special trip there just for the pizza tho. The pastas.. A different story... Worthy of the special trip.. Tastes... More

We had a short wait when we visited this restaurant in July but was worth it. Restaurant is small but the perfect size for the atmosphere it wants to portray - that of the Godfather movie. The bar area is small but people don't come here for the drinks - the food is wonderful. Highly recommend.

We have spent a lot of time in Destin in the past. In our travels around the area we had seen Fat Clemenza's many times and always wandered what it was like. This year at the recommendation of the Real Estate Agent we used she recommended it very highly with a great word about their bruschetta. We stopped in that... More

Food was very good and service was good too. Very busy place and for a reason-it's just good. It's a bit east of Destin but well worth it.

Best Italian food in Destin area. Everything is authentic and fresh. Prices are fair. Restaurant is small so hard to get in sometimes. Worth the wait.

Will go back! BF was thrilled with his bolognese sauce although he requested angel hair for spaghetti but was still wrong noodles. Big deal? Not, but no apology or offer to make it right... New server soooo. Carbonara was wonderful. Disappointed that no one knows their wine list. Had to talk to 3 different people but we finally chose blindly... More

This was my first visit to Fat Clamenza's. I love Italian food, especially spaghetti! Needless to say I couldn't wait to try it from Fat's!! But before we get to that, The GARLIC bread APP is the BOMB!!! I also tried the Bruschetta, DELISH!! The spaghetti didn't disappoint either, the best I have ever had! and I have had ALOT... More

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.
