After eating at Clemenzas in 2014, we decided to visit the restaurant again last week. The homemade pepperoni pizzas was big enough for 2, hot and filling. Service was pleasant. We needed a reservation for an indoor table and did not have one. Fortunately, the evening was pleasant outside (even in late November), and we ate on the outdoor patio.

Cute little place. The shrimp Romano appetizer was very good. The pizza was gross. Soggy and cold. We never saw our waiter after the pizza was delivered to order more wine.

The pizza was great, nice wood oven pizza with a generous amount of toppings. Place had a nice variety of wines by bottle and glass. My only complaint was that we were seated near the register and I kept having rude people picking up to go orders elbowing me in the head when they left. 😡

Best pizza I've ever eaten! Also the garlic rolls were amazing. The only negative is that they are closed on Sunday :-(. We ate there on the Friday we arrived and we were craving it again that Sunday before we left town. I was so sad to learn they were closed! So I'll have to wait to get my Fat... More

When you first see the place you may be hesitant to walk in but once you enter the staff are warm and welcoming and the food is delicious. Especially the calamari! Loved it!

This is my favorite restaurant in the Destin area. Food is really good and service is friendly. The house wine is also good and inexpensive.

Ive been there a few times and this is my first rating on this restaurant. It is consistently good and authentic tasting. Have an Italian mother I feel somewhat privileged to make this statement. The service is very pleasant and the price value is right. Go and enjoy...you won't be disappointed.
