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.

We had the lasagna and the pasta Emiliana. Both were great, served hot and fresh. I am used to a more full bodied red sauce but theirs was still good. Finished the dinner off with Tiramisu.

I wanted some pasta and this was the highest rated Italian place. The restaurant was very nice and my service was very good! I had a few things on the menu, garlic rolls, tirimisu which were good. My pasta was just pretty average however. Maybe it was just that one dish...I would give the restaurant another try.

The food was good. A bit pricy but good. The service though. I must have waited 5 minutes for a table. Then once I did get sat there was a lot of waiting. The water glass was always waiting to be refilled. It wasn't even busy. It just seemed like the servers can't balance their time correctly. I'm not sure... More

The food is wonderful like each dish is truly cared for before it reaches the table! Perfectly cooked chicken for me and aged cheese sauce made that lunch the best meal of my day. The waiter was very knowledgeable and kind as well as genuinely excited about the food! My friend was overly pleased with the chicken Parmesan. Both of... More
