Nice variety of Italian food. From brickoven pizza to speciality Italian dishes. The spaghetti was excellent as was the seafood linguini. And this is real time stuff cooked in the shells. Service was very good. They are open early then close and open at 5 for dinner. Suggest not waiting too late to go for dinner unless you have a... More

We go to Clemenza's often - we were disappointed today. Get rid of the nasty brown plastic table clothes and go to the white linen. Much nicer - and cleaner. Our table cover needed to be washed. This time we had pizza. It was just OK. We have had better pizza from. The sauce lacked any special flavor. I think... More

My family is fairly picky and wanted Italian food one evening while on vacation in Fort Walton Beach. My wife found Clemenza's on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The name did throw me at first (1. not a Clemson fan and 2. ...I'll let you use your imagination), but the food was great. I can not speak to... More

We had read the reviews here and had a couple of friends say they liked it. After getting here I thought wow not sure what they saw in it. Looked clean but it has a strip mall atmosphere which is what it is. So average. It took them a while to seat us despite empty tables. Our waiter was very... More

ALWAYS awesome! I could eat at Clemenza's everynight! I wish they offered Sunday breakfast. It's delish as well.

We visited here mid week based on reviews. We came early without a reservation and it was a good thing, since they had two large parties booked. We ordered the lasagna and chicken Florentino . Both dishes were delicious. I think the prices are a little high here; our bill was $56 before tip. Our server was excellent, but unless... More

Last Friday was my third visit to Clemenza's and on each visit the quality, the atmosphere, the food, the wait staff are rated excellent in my book. I ate lunch twice and weekend brunch once. We didn't want to look for a waterfront dining spot since the weather was drizzly rain and grey skies. We remembered our great lunch in... More

We have eaten here numerous times. The food is always predictably good. I am picky about Italian food and I have not been disappointed here, ever. Lasagna, veal/chicken parm, and all specials we've tried have been excellent. The wine list has a good price range. Service is friendly. Portion sizes are large. The restaurant gets busy at times but they... More
