The garlic knots and pizza were delicious! Service was fantastic! We went at lunchtime and had absolutely no wait. Prices were very reasonable. We would definitely go back!

My husband and I ordered a pizza and garlic rolls to-go from Fat Clemenza's while we were on vacation. First off, the pizzas come in only medium sized or larger, so you can't order a small. A medium will serve about 3 people. The cost...More

We had the best pizza and salad. Service was excellent. A mom and pop worth trying. Loved the thin crust pizza.
