Wonderful dinner

I had dinner here with 2 friends and it was fantastic. The staff is friendly and very efficient. I had a chicken dish, but the pizza looks amazing! I'll definitely go back

I was raised in an Italian neighborhood in New Jersey, so I know what Italian food should be. Clemenza's was a huge disappointment. We visited on a Monday evening. The special was "Jumbo Stuffed Shells in vodka cream sauce". My mouth was watering... When it was brought to the table, it was a bowl of three small shells covered in... More

Two of us made a reservation & went to Clemenza's 12/19/15. It was very busy,but we were seated in 10 minutes. Met a very friendly and helpful server, Pilar. Food was good: soup, 2 entrees &, limoncello cake dessert. When I presented a $20. gift certificate (On $55. check) things got unpleasant. Male manager (nameless) huffed that it was too... More

Went to Clemenzas this past week for a Christmas party and was very pleased with it on many levels. Everything about this restaurant is nice ...... The decor, the menu, the wait staff, the fresh ingredients, and the atmosphere. I ordered shrimp with noodles. I also had in a light sauce; it was very tasty and the portion was good.... More

It’s hard to find a locals place in Ft Walton or anywhere in the area; most restaurants cater to and are over-run my tourists. We were fortunate to have friends in the area who took us to Clemenza’s on a recent weekend evening for dinner. They made the reservations and we were seated immediately, so I don’t know how easy...

I went here with a few of my friends for lunch. Service was slow, food was ok and it is pricey! I don't know if rent is high but for the taste and quality of food, not worth the price.

Clemenza's has become almost a second home to us we go there so often. All their entrees feature authentic Italian cuisine and the service is faultless. We were there yesterday with our granddaughter for lunch splitting a pizza and arugula salad with grilled chicken that were both delicious. We are going back tonight and I know I will order the...

Absolutely amazing food! The house made salad dressings were great and unique. The main course was far above what I expected. The molten chocolate dessert was heavenly. The atmosphere came off a bit casual compared to the food but it worked. Highly recommended!

Becoming a favorite of our business group. The food is excellent, the service is fast and friendly, and the attitude of the owners is clear: authentic sicilian dining experience. We were stationed there for 2 years, and can speak to the authenticity of it. I think we now have a running tab, as we go there so often.
