“What fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

It's times like these that bring home the value of trip advisor. We pass through Flagstaff a lot and would never have eaten here without t/a. From the food to the atmosphere to the service, everything was top notch. All of the staff were incredidle. Wife still raving about the chocolate calsone dessert. Similar yet totally different than Columbia's Shakespear. A well deserved "well done" to the entire staff.

“Delicious Pizza! Cool Atmosphere for Dinner (not open at lunch)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

The pizza here was very tasty! The salads and homemade dressings were also yummy. We enjoyed a nice night eating our pizzas and watching football on TV. It was a very comfortable atmosphere and the service was good. This is a gourmet, thin crust pizza and the price reflects the "gourmet" aspect of that. We tried to go for lunch on another day, but unfortunately they are only open for dinner. We will definitely go to Fat Olives again next time we are in Flagstaff!

“Amazing pizza and awesome vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Such a fun place to eat. You can feel the effort and love that goes into each item on the menu. We started with the roasted vegetables and they were to die for. It included roasted brussel sprouts, cauliflower, asparagus, onion, red peppers, and butternut squash. So much flavor and tenderness. I then had the in house smoked salmon pizza. It was so good and prepared with such love. My wife had to Dicopa pizza (buffalo mozz, san marzano tomatoes and fresh basil) and she said it was amazing. The wood fired pizza oven produces the best pizza crust. I truly wonderful dining experience.

“A Must See in Flagstaff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Recommended by the nearby Hampton Inn East, this restaurant looks modest on the outside, but offers top-notch food and service. There's a fairly large menu that includes unusual and distinctive varieties of pizza and many other Italian choices. Ingredients are fresh, local, and sustainable. The Fat Olive Insalata is terrific, and for dessert you can't go wrong with Dolce Calzone. Our server, Laura, was one of the most personable and helpful servers I've ever encountered. Don't miss this restaurant!

A varied menu, great pizza and lots of beer and wine options. We sat at the bar (it was otherwise full) and ordered pizza from the wood-fired oven They were excellent. Great service and knowledgeable friendly service.
