Drove by and liked the looks of the place. Glad we stopped, yummiest garganzola & carmelized onion pizza ever! My husbands calzone was the biggest he's ever had. Loved the atmosphere, the military theme and the heritage you can feel there.

Went with another couple in late August. Only three other tables had diners. We were seated promptly and water served. We wanted coffee but waitress left suddenly. Table near us was seated and coffee served. No waitress. 10 minutes later we could not find waitress or hostess. After another embarrassing wait as other couple were out guests we left. Still...

We were guests in a large private party gathering, so our menu choices had to be limited but what was served was delicious and beautifully presented. My veal with pasta alone would bring me back. Others at our table were similarly impressed with this unassuming gem. Nice wine and beer selection.

Impressive! Most of the time we eat here for lunch. 75% of the time I get the daily special and I have never been disappointed. If the special does not interest me, my go to dish is the Rigatoni Ala Vodka with meatballs. Now, you may not see the option with meatballs on the menu, but they serve it. Here's... More

My wife and I went to Clemenza's for brunch last week and had excellent food and friendly service. But, when we asked if they provided a military discount we were told no they do not. The funny things is, if you look around the restaurant, there are numerous pictures of the owner and different military members. Numerous squadrons have "thank... More

We ordered salad, pizza, and garlic knots. Everything was delicious and our entire family loved it! Nice atmosphere. Classy restaurant but we were still welcomed in our beachy attire with our 5 kids.

Great food, but 10 to 15 minutes each for a Miller Lite and a glass of wine. So we spent a total of 30 to 45 minutes for drinks. Waitress kept saying " Sorry we are still waiting on your drinks". Servers were, ok, bartender slow as Christmas, but food is really really great.

The food was very good. Service was lacking. Bland atmosphere. However, I'll give it another try. Servers could be more attentive. It needs a friendly and welcoming vibe.
