My husband and I stumbled across this wonderful restaurant on our way to the airport. What a great end to our trip. Or server Ryan was so nice and helpful. The food was delicious. Everything from the bread to the fantastic lemon cream cake!! Definitely would go back! So delicious!

This by far, has been the best dining experience we have had on this vacation. The food was hot, beautifully seasoned and very fresh tasting. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about their menu items. We will be repeat customers and would highly recommend you give them a try. Thanks so much.

Waited 5 minutes before being greeted and led to our seats. Located directly between 2 families with babies was not the experience I was looking for to celebrate my son's 14th birthday. Service was slow, I think they only had 2 servers at dinner, and the food was par at best. Just moved to florida so I can check this... More

Amazing service, great atmosphere. Everything that we ordered was spot on delicious. The herb crusted chicken, pizza, and calzones were all awesome. Pizza and calzones could be shared for two as they are large portions.

If you are in the area you are either on business or vacation. But since you are on TripAdvisor you are looking for great food. This is the place. Not a Tourist's restaurant, this is a food lover's restaurant. Only thing I can say is great service and great food. AWESOME.

Clemenza's delivers quality Italian! The food is great and the service good. Starting with the fresh bread and olive oil, you know you are in for a treat. The Pasta Carbonara a House Speciality was super creamy and loaded with cheese. It is a meal my heart specialist will pound on me for eating, but it was excellent. Definitely making... More

This is a family operated somewhat upscale Italian restaurant that is worth making a part of your itinerary. They have great service in a very nice atmosphere. The food is authentic Italian and well worth the visit. The owner himself is attentive. A reservation is worthwhile which tells you something about the local reputation!

We went for a quite night at the local Italian restaurant on St Patrick's day thinking everyone would be at the local Irish festival. BIG SUPRISE - the place was packed. Service was great, the bread was warm and hearty, the ambiance was cozy, and the food was good at a fair price. The lasagna was OK - but I... More

The quaint Italian feel of the restaurant along with authentic Cusine and excellent service makes any get together very pleasurable. The wines are chosen carefully and the staff are well versed to make perfect recommendations for pairings. Very affordable experience.
