We were in Destin for the 1st 2 weeks in April and stopped because our daughter thought it sounded interesting and we were in the mood for pizza. The pizza was excellent . We decided to come back to try the Italian food and they did not disappoint. We visited 3 times in our short stay and will put this on our favorite list. Service, Food were excellent. You do not expect this kind of quality in a restauarnt located in a strip mall. The owner and his staff make you feel like family. Best Italian on the Gulf coast.

This place is amazing. I took my parents who are from LA and love great food. We were so impressed. The calamari and garlic rolls were delicious and the pizza was divine. The atmosphere was wonderful and the service was top notch. The manager was also very nice and made you feel at home. If you enjoy good Italian food, great service and a superb atmosphere- Fat Clemenza's is the place to go!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fat Clemenza's. We love to check out the local dining options while traveling and having lived in New York City and Park City, Utah we find that we're pretty discerning when it comes to our choices. We now live in Tallahassee, Florida but think this restaurant is perfect for casual comfort food. The flavors are incredible and the service is friendly and prompt. Check it out, you'll be glad you did! Denise & Manny

Visited Fat Clemenza's in March 2009 during our first trip to Destin and it was one of our favorite experiences. Not only is the food amazing, but the owners make you feel like part of the family. It's clear that they are serious about cooking great food and taking care of their customers. Everything is homemade -- the bread is too die for. Try the mussels, order the brick over pizza, and save room for one of their homemade desserts. (We had the lemon curd cake, which was amazing!).
