    Went out for a much needed date night and was not disappointed. Our server was excellent and so was his wine recommendation. Dinner was wonderful and we were surprised with a complimentary dessert. We had a great night out and we'll be back!

    Luigi was our waiter and he was very good. He made every effort to make our evening a good time. Noise level was high and made it difficult to talk at the table without having to raise your voice. Being out of any wine (Moscato this night) on a Saturday night is inexcusable along with the fact that they do not carry any Reisling. Veal was almost deep fried ruining the meat and its taste. The bolognese sauce was without the presence of any veal, beef or pork, and included mushrooms. I asked for a meat sauce bolognese and received the flavor at best. The rigatoni was perfect and saved the meal along with Luigi's conscientiousness. This is our 3rd visit to the restaurant and I'm afraid it was a disappointment this time.

    I love this place! The food is excellent. There are always special dishes not on the menu. The scallop appetizer is one of my favs. The mushroom risotto side dish is good and creamy (a must). You can't go wrong with osso bucco or any of the specials. Having the option for outdoor dining is nice. The wine list has a nice range of choices. The staff are great and are a big part in making this my favorite restaurant. Reservations are recommended especially on the weekends.

    Where to take friends to dinner who are excellent cooks? Fiamma was the perfect answer to that problem. All five of us ordered a different main dish and we all were impressed with the artistic plating and most importantly the wonderful taste of the food. I have lived in Italy and I recognize excellent Northern Italian cuisine when I see and taste it. Barvissimo!

    I have been eating at Fiamma for several years now, and I can honestly say that each time I have had a pleasant experience. Only once I can think of that the meal I had was average (I was with a large group on a weekday night, so I attribute it to that). Otherwise every time I have dined at Fiamma it has been outstanding! I'm so hooked (pardon the pun) on the Chilean Sea Bass that I find it difficult to try other dishes. But I have ventured out and tried a chicken entree and the scallops are great too. The ambiance and the service has always been impeccable. My one complaint is that the last time I went there and tried to pay for my meal with cash, no one working there had change. Oh well, I still like to pay by cash. Top fav Italian place!

    Had friends from Pinehurst visiting. I raved about the restaurant. Things were going as planned until our entrees arrived. Three of us were served while the other person had to wait. Once the dish arrived, it was undercooked. By the time it re-arrived the three of us had already finished eating. A big disappointment. My compliments to the restaurant for providing two complimentary desserts to offset their mix up.

    We chose Fiamma to celebrate our 34 wedding anniversary. While somewhat concerned that is was in a shopping center, when we stepped inside, the warm greeting and wonderful atmosphere made us feel at home. I requested a nicer table and we were seated on "the mezzanine" at a table by the window. It was private enough for conversation yet we felt connected to the energy of the main floor. Our server, Nick, was excellent, knowledgeable and personable. The food was delicious. My wife had the Vitello alla Milanese and had the Tagliolini allo Scoglio (home made pasta with fresh seafood). To our surprise, they provided us a complementary dessert, wonderful cannoli's. This is a definite winner.

    As always, Fiamma meets my expectations. The wine list is extensive but with plenty of options. the menu is suitable for meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans. Love the palate cleanser! Love the bread and pesto sauce! The Bolognese is fantastic. You really cannot go wrong with any of the entrees here. Staff is attentive.

    Fiamma always warmly greets you like family. We were there early on a Tuesday for dinner; unfortunately the food wasn't quite up to par in comparison to prior meals there, especially my seafood linguini (the shellfish were not the quality they were last time, won't order that dish again). My husband did enjoy his pork dish & the mushroom/goat cheese appetizer was very YUMMY as usual! Oh, and I'm not a dessert eater, but hubby sure polished off his chocolate torte dessert which we heated at home the next day!

    The food and service at Fiamma are superb. Don't be put off by the outside or the décor inside which are both very average. The food is fresh, creative, perfectly prepared and presented very well. One suggestion is not to have nine specials which the wait staff recites. Although our waiter was excellent and never missed a beat, we find it cumbersome to try and remember all the specials and their preparation. A printed specials menu would be appreciated. The burratta salad and halibut specials were wonderful.

    If you haven't been there yet, it's time to get yourself to Fiamma. Whether you sit inside or outside on their patio (as we prefer to do with our doggies), the service is warm, friendly, very professional (thanks again Joanna) and the food is delicious and very moderately priced. Serving sizes are very generous (unless you have a huge appetite you'll be getting a second supper out of most of the dishes). The warm bread and yummy basil pesto dipping oil is a perfect start to your meal. Enjoy!!

    I don't know how long this restaurant has been tucked away in this neighborhood but I am so glad it was recommended by a friend. The food was delicious, the presentation was lovely and our server was very, very good. She had a good knowledge of wine, food preparation and did not reference "cheat sheets" when offering specials. How she did that, I don't know:) We were never rushed through courses; instead she encouraged us to take our time and enjoy what the restaurant had to offer. We did and will definitely return.

    From the cheerful greeting we received from Joanna (who then became our server), her impressive professionalism as she spoke in detail of the many "specials" that evening to helping me select a wine based on my describing the kind of wine I enjoy, this was an outstanding dining experience. My husband and I had the Halibut special which we both highly recommend. It was seasoned and cooked to perfection & was accompanied by some shrimp, scallops and a generous portion of delicious spinach. We look forward to returning! OH, I forgot to mention the bread with their specially made basil/pesto dipping sauce - YUM!!!

    First time for us; brought our Dachshund because dogs are allowed at patio dining. Server was Jessica, she was very friendly and attentive. Pace of experience leans heavily toward European standards (so don't be in a hurry). I had the veal chop special which was fantastic, on the side was their homemade gnocchi, also tasty though the red sauce was bland for me. My partner had the halibut special which was severely overcooked and returned to the kitchen. Second halibut was better, though still had a heavy hand. Manager was very apologetic, comped the fish and provided dessert. Given the other reviews, we'll definitely give them another try.

    This was a great find. The food is delicious and the service was excellent. We went for an early dinner so it was not crowded. You can tell all the pasta and gnocchi are homemade. They give you a palate cleanser between appetizer and entrée which only adds to the experience. The chocolate dessert torte is one of the best I have ever tasted. The prices are on the steep side but the experience is worth it!

    First time at this restaurant and it was every bit as good as the reviews said it would be. Given how it's tucked away off the main drag in a strip mall, you wouldn't know it was there, but it is worth finding. Great menu, portion size and the prices were moderate. Attentive service. We will definitely return.

    Repeat visit to Fiamma for us, a first for friends from Houston. Our waitress was well informed on menu and specials and attentive. All enjoyed their respective meals. I had veal milanaise and it was excellent, as was the beef carpaccio. The only negative i have on Fiamma is that when they announce the specials they do not provide a price. From previous experience they are significantly higher than the menu items and that can be an unpleasant surprise. We specifically asked about the prices as the specials were announced.

    Being new to the Charlotte area, I wanted to find a romantic place, have a nice meal and a good glass of wine. The local reviews were positive for Fiamma so, we decided to go. There was ample parking spaces in front of the restaurant which was just off the street. The front of the building is rather plain much the same as the rest of the strip mall. The owner has created a more inviting entrance with lighting, outdoor tables and plants. We entered the restaurant expecting it to be a place that was 'romantic'; I wouldn't say so. It is open concept with bench seats on the outside of the restaurant that are worn which go with the decor. The staff was extremely attentive when seating and ordering. The creative food menu is what are here for.

    Fiamma is lacking in ambience due to the offset floor plan. Food is consistently good, but service is inconsistent and on a recent Saturday visit (at about 75% capacity), service was inexplicably slow. I would still recommend Fiamma on the strength of the food and wine list, but will be reluctant to return anytime in the near future. Dino Diner
