Had a group of five girl softball players, ordered 4 large pizzas..... $70.00 later they came home with 4 pizzas the size if a frozen Tomstone Pizza which tasted close to it. Didn't even feed the girls or the few parents that pitched in money. We must be used to bigger pizzas in our region not a six sliced pizza.

We ate dinner here our first night. Food was good. My son had a pizza and my daughter eat spaghetti and meatballs. My husband and I shared a dish that was a house favorite but I can't remember the name. It's was also good.

If you are craving some Italian while in the Destin area this place is great! The pizza crust is so yummy. So is the bread they serve with dipping oil. The prices are very reasonable and the service was good. Note that the place is pretty small and fills up fast so arrive early especially if you have a larger... More

We were looking for an Italian restaurant to offset the prices that we were spending on Seafood at the Beach. Unfortunately, this is not it. The food was good, but not worth what they were charging. The restaurant was very small and we had to sit outside. It was still a little too hot at 6:00, but we were hungry.... More

Ordered the $30.00 Red Snapper special: very comparable to Stouffer's frozen dinner. From frozen, heavily breaded no seasoning. Alfredo sauce tasted like bottled quality. Nice presentation, quick service, nice waitstaff, tho.

This is one of our go-to places for pizza. We've tried almost every one on the menu and have never been disappointed. We've brought out two sons, they love the kids pepperoni pizza. It fills up very quickly, so get there at opening or make a reservation. We love Fat Clemenzas and you will too.

The caesar salad and pizza was outstanding. They also bring you bread and dip to start and it was so yummy! This is a small restaurant with an interesting decor. It also has outdoor seating.

We are here and it was awesome. Had the pizza and gnocchi. Both were really good. Especially the crust of the pizza. Was probably the best wood fired pizza I've had yet. Very busy place so make a reservation. Also a small place so not much room. But well worth it for the great food.

We made another trip to Sandestin and made our regular trip to Fat Clemenza's. Another great meal with great service. We have not had the chance to get beyond the lasagna and pizza. Smiling faces, great food, fast service. But get there early.
