We called in a take out order on our last night in town. They said 15 minutes and we showed in 15 minutes " pizza cold". Very crowded and under sized place. I couldn't believe they only offer one size pizza, you got to give the customer what they want not what you want to do. The staff was very... More

Our dinner here was wonderful. One of my first cousins that lives in Fairhope recommended this place to us. Good food and cozy atmosphere.

We ordered basic pepperoni and cheese pizza to-go. My order was ready when I arrived, as promised. I paid and picked up my pizza and within five minutes was out the door but not without bumping into the staff and other customers. The restaurant was overcrowded, so I would not suggest dining in. The pizza was amazing!

I love the thin crust, it was a little pricey for a medium pizza. The staff were all very nice, warm welcoming. It's a good break from hotel/resort food.

The food, service, ambiance is this place was fantastic. A welcome relief from some not-so-great restaurants on our trip. The Cesar salad, pepperoni pizza, lemon cake are to die for! The minestrone was good. We made a reservation and had no wait.

Great food and great service. Portions are perfect for sharing. Highly recommend calling ahead for reservations as the place is small.

We called in an order on a Tuesday evening during Spring Break. When we arrived, people waiting to be seated took priority over those waiting to pickup an order. Our pizza was cold, crust brunt, & staff had no interest in our patronage. Not impressed! Paid $20 for a medium pizza - definitely NOT worth it

I don't travel in this area as much as I used to, but I look forward to a meal here no matter if a specialty dish or pizza. It's a small restaurant located in a strip mall, but don't let that fool you as their food is great! It's best to make a reservation if during peak season or any... More

Stopped in at Fat Clemenza's to check out the place and try out some pizza. The first thing I need to tell you is that this is NOT a sports bar. No games to watch, no music blasting. It is a very nice slightly upscale restaurant with well groomed and polite staff. The Calamari is really good. The pizza is... More

I had high expectations once the night before I could get a reservation. I was disappointed, the food was ok, the bread and the olive oil dip were very good. Salads was also very good. Some of my family liked the Pizza, others didn't. Ambience was creed.

Thank Ingrid R
