Description: In 1998, a great location and the desire to produce superb pizza led Dan and Ken Bothman to create La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza. An immediate sensation, Dan and Ken's restaurant was showered with acclaim, winning the Best New Business and Bellingham's Best Pizza awards, as well as garnering two Best Recipe awards in the National Association of Pizza Operators (NAPO) International Recipe Contest. But stellar pizza isn't the only reason to visit La Fiamma. The stylish decor and vibrant atmosphere delight and entice both young and old and everyone in between. You can witness the display of a pizza's progression through the kitchen (kids love it), or you can relax in our heated outdoor dining area, and catch an amazing sunset over the San Juan Islands. The La Fiamma experience is always a fusion of personality, ambience, and incredible food.

“Savor the pizza crust!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We went to La Fiamma based on the great TA reviews and were not disappointed!

The main draw is the wood-fired pizza, which creates a tasty chewy crust unique to this style of baking. Our pizza toppings were good, cheese was an appropriate amount, but by far the best part was the crust. Our salad was average and the garlic toast was very good.

The staff was rather mechanical about service, but they were exceptionally busy too. By 5:30 PM, there was a line of 20 people waiting for tables. The "pizza of the day" (squash, mushrooms) was already sold out - this seemed surprising for so early in the evening. Also sold out was a bottle of Italian wine prominently featured on the menu.

Overall an enjoyable dinner, and we'll return to La Fiamma on our next visit to Bellingham.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The service and atmosphere is fantastic - I enjoyed the selection of beverages they had to offer. The salad with homage dressing was the best- look forward to going back for more and the pizza was absolutely fantastic - great place - well done!

“Gourmet pizza & interesting cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

There wood fire pizzas are great. Had the special which was Chantelle mushroom. So good that we came back again on our same vacation. Also loved the Mediterranean chips and salsa appetizer. They also make their own Tonic, interesting cocktails. Also loved their rosemary infused lemon aid. (Non-alcoholic). Great atmosphere, outside deck is heated for chilly nights.

“Very well made gourmet pizzas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

La Fiama has been a favorite since they opened. Their crust is perfect and "kissed by fire" in the wood fired pizza oven. Very creative topping combinations make for a great food experience. Show your sense of adventure and try the Major Grigio pizza. You won't be disappointed.
