After spending a few days in Arizona and the full day at the Grand Canyon, my wife and I were ready for a nice meal. We used Trip Advisor to figure out we wanted to try Fat Olives. It suited our dress for 103°F all day and had the artisan style that we prefer. I ordered the Fennel Sausage and... read more

Stopped here as it was near our hotel, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the pizza! We have been to Italy many times, and this pizza is as good or better than any in Italy! It was cooked perfectly. Service was good, as was the wine.

Where do we begin?!?! First off, our waiter, Michael was so knowledgeable about the wine list and was instrumental in our amazing experience! He was very attentive. Then the food was just outstanding! We just ate there tonight and are already planning our return trip! We honestly felt we were sitting on an Italian hillside. It was an authentic experience...

Ended up going for dinner by default. It turned out to be a good discovery. The oven roasted olives were a great appetizer. I shared a specialty salad that was very tasty. My lasagna was very delicious. My husband had a pizza that was savory and sweet. My only negative comment would be that bread should be served with the... More

Having a series of digestive issues makes it difficult, if not impossible, to find a restaurant where I can enjoy dining. But Fat Olives provided a rare opportunity by adjusting their ingredients to meet my needs while still being able to feast on their tasty, aromatic foods. The olives in warmed oil were fantastic, as was the bread and salad... More

The atmosphere was amazing especially since live music was playing in the background. The food was OK, but the homemade soda was really good.

Our visit to Fat Olives started on a bad note. As we were inquiring about menu items, we asked the waiter if the Caesar dressing was house-made and he told us it was not, justifying it with the excuse that they "use too much to make it in-house." In my opinion, that's a pretty poor excuse for an Italian-themed restaurant!... More

We suppose to have salad before meal and... More

We were split on the food. My husband loved the fennel sausage pizza. I didn't care for the meatball pizza. The food came out quicker than fast food and was warm, not hot, when it arrived but cooled very quickly, much faster than you could eat it. The worst part of our experience was the waiter, Dylan. He was incredibly... More

Found this place on Urban Spoon as it was along our route back to Sedona and were blown away by the experience. The wait staff was very attentive and the food came out very fast. The wood fired pizzas were excellent as were the salads and entrees we also ordered. It was a great meal after a long day and... More
