Went there after reading the reviews, got there with reservation and got seated right away, the place was packed. We ordered the appertizer sampler, all very good and got us full. Nice wine list and thought about going back the next day for brunch! We would go back for sure!

On a suggestion from friends, my girlfriend and I had the Sunday Brunch at Mama Clemenza's recently. I am glad that they suggested it and we will be returning. The atmosphere, food and service is all top-notch. The owner adds a personal touch by walking around to greet the guests and ensures everyone is happy. Our meals were cooked perfectly... More

I was prepared to cook dinner last Friday night but happened to look on facebook and saw the special featured at Clemenza's for that night. I immediately made reservations-thankfully they were able to squeeze us in on a busy night. We weren't disappointed. My husband and I both had the blackened redfish with brown butter sauce over Chipotle grit cake.... More

Outstanding meal & dessert at very reasonable prices. Great service to go along with the food. Had a chance to speak with the chef. Well worth your time if in the area!

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews and are glad we stumbled on it. It's located in a strip mall so we weren't expecting much but looks are deceiving. The atmosphere is upscale casual and the service is attentive without being pretentious. Prices are what you might expect from a local restaurant and everything is a la carte. We... More

The food was excellent, which is certainly the most important thing! My friend and I, along with our combined 6 kids visited on a Friday night at 6:30 and everyone loved their dish, starting with Mascapone, Caramelized Onion and Fig on Italian bread for an appetizer, then the favorites were Rigatoni Ala Vodka and the Mimmo fire grilled pizza.

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere with our party of 8 (which included 6 children ages 8-16.) The only downside is that hostess and wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed and unorganized. I hate to mention because they were working very hard, were super polite, & even removed a very delayed entree from our bill & gave us a... More

I would like to give a better rating but the food and policies here are odd. First, a $20-25 entree with no salad included. Really? Then, I always order a marsala as a benchmark to compare with other Italian restaurants. This was the oddest marsala I've ever had. First, there was only one small chicken breast ($20), and a bit...

Don't miss having Saturday or Sunday brunch at Mama Clemenza's located in Uptown Station on Eglin Parkway. Dined here this morning and can only rave about the quality of the food, the service and atmosphere. The Eggs Benedict are 5 star plus and the best I have had anywhere. We also ordered one of the specials, Risotto Milanese and it... More
