Had reservations for an early dinner and we were not disappointed in anything.

This is a small restaurant, so a reservation is a very good idea. By 6pm (on a Thursday) the restaurant was full and people were waiting to be seated.

I had seafood linguini, my wife had linguini with white clam sauce and we each had a side salad. Absolutely excellent and the portions were large. The grilled bread with olive oil dipping sauce completed and complimented the meal. One of the better meals we have had since we arrived in Destin for the winter.

Fat Clemenza's is a very cozy, well decorated restaurant with absolutely wonderful food. The portions are far more than enough and the house Merlot is very good. I had the lasagna was absoltely outstanding ! Frienda had the chicken Parmigiana , spicy linguine Marinara, and pasta primavera. Not much was said after the food was served because it was delicious. If you like Italian food in a cozy retaurant at moderate pricing this is the place.

We had a very pleasant and enjoyable dinner tonight at Fat Clemenza's. Service was friendly and the food was delicious, though when you pay $20 for pasta with shrimp, you should get a salad included for the price.

Great atmosphere and great food. Small place so get there early to avoid waiting in line. We had the olive salad. Not at all what we expected but sooooo delicious! Also had carryout pizza from there during our stay. Also very good.

The pizza was delicious, handmade and wood fired. There were many other items on the menu to choose from. Good bottled wine list. This is not a complaint just an FYI: we did take our 8 yr old; however those reading this should know that the interior is small and the tables are close together. There appears to be more couples there without kids than with kids. Sometimes people want to know the type of place they are going to, again not a complaint and the food was really good.
