Clemenza’s was easily some of the best Italian food you could ever have. Portions were large. Quality was high and even the craftsmanship of the gnocchi,amaretto cake, Italian margarita went above and beyond. I strongly recommend eating here. Service was quick and consistent.

Food was good, portions reasonable. Nice quiet atmosphere. Prices were a little high. I had lasagna. It was tasty but heavy on sauce and light on pasta. Wife had chicken parm. Nice portion and nicely presented.

Outside, no, inside, yes. In a strip mall type building, but cozy inside. They take reservations, and have a nice bar, All table seating, no booths. You can get a table in a corner, for a more private feeling.
