    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

    Great food, horrible service. Waiter was slow and inattentive. No excuse to wait 45 minutes just for the bread and then an hour and a half for the main course. When we asked to speak to the chef about the service, he was very rude and didn't want to hear a thing we said. Very surprising considering the food was really good. Won't be recommending to any friends and won't be going back.

    We look forward to and know we can count on having a great experience when it really counts. Fiamma is our go-to place for birthdays and anniversaries or just a simple date night. Except that the kids get mad when they don't get to come with us. We love Fiamma and tell our friends and business associates to come here every chance we get.

    Fiamma continues to be one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently good, and servers are friendly and knowledgeable. ( for a real treat, request Matthew!). Just when we think we will go elsewhere for lunch or dinner, we wind up at Fiamma. Side note: the sea bass is quite possibly the best we've ever eaten!

    Awful service it took them 20 minutes to acknowledge us while we were standing awkwardly at hostess station. After 45 mins we only had flat sodas and still waiting for a high chair for the baby. The service was so awful and the restaurant so noisy we just had to leave. Would not recommend this place to anyone. Save your time and your money and go to Toscana's for real Italian food and awesome service and ambiance

    Tried Fiamma during Charlotte Restaurant Week and it was great. We never knew it existed . Had to change my reservation twice and each time they were more than helpful. I ordered the Lamb Shank and it was so tender and flavorful and the Gnocci that came with it were delicious. All five meals were great and the presentation was beautiful. The Veal Milanese had just a little to much salt for my taste, but was tender!

  • Disappointed during Restaurant Week
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/25/2014
    I was so excited to go to Fiamma after reading their menu for Restaurant Week. I love bolognese sauce so was extremely disappointed when my plate arrived. There was hardly any meat in the sauce and the sauce was basically clear tomatoe sauce. When I've ordered bolognese sauce at other restaurants, it's so thick you can eat with a spoon. I asked for extra sauce but that still didn't do the trick so asked if I could order something else. They accommodated me and I ordered the mushroom ravioli. It was better but the noodle/filling ratio was was off. I think there was maybe 1 tsp of filling in a large ravioli. Do not think I will go back. Service was also mediocre.

    We really enjoyed our meal at Fiamma. I believe our waiter was Matthew. Very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The quality of the ingredients and the preparation were outstanding. We tried the beef carpaccio, one of the salads, lamb shank and the snapper fish of the day. The flavors were so vibrant, it made us feel as if we were dining in Italy.

    Was not as good as I remembered - maybe it was due to a set menu for restaurant week. The Salmon was not fresh, had a fishy smell and tast, and the vegetables were - well, OK! I was expecting much more. Doubt if I will go back.

    Lovely in every way! We always go during restaurant week since it is a bit of a trip for us at other times. If I lived in the neighborhood I would dine there more often. All of the food is exceptional - wonderful combinations of flavors, always fresh ingredients, and lovely presentations. This Italian food is a light fare and you feel as if you have had an excellent dining experience without an outrageous price. This gem of a restaurant is hidden in a strip mall - so similar to restaurants that you find in Europe. Why pay a high price for dinner becauce of the restaurant's location...their high overhead?? The wait staff is always attentive, well trained and extremely professional - which only adds to the ambiance of Fiamma!

    From the perfectly cooked scallop appetizer (on cauliflower puree!) to the unusual thinly sliced octopus, our three course dinner was delicious from appetizer to desert. I had porcini filled ravioli in a butter sauce. My dinner partner had perfectly cooked lamb chops. Elegantly presented pana cotta and crème brulee were just the right size and just the right touch upon which to end a lovely meal.

    Average Italian dinner with a nice atmosphere and very nice service. Scallops weren't fully cooked, and veal Milanese was over cooked. Great bread and desserts, but nothing special. My cocktail special (pomegranate spritzer) sounded better than it was - not bad, but little Prosecco. We were there for Restaurant Week, and the menu did have a lot of nice options.

    Excellent service. Very busy during Restaurant Week and the kitchen was very efficient. The beef carpaccio, red snapper, and lamb chops were all very good. The Crema Bruciata was the best dessert. The Ravioli was a little dry, it needed more sauce. The texture of the tiramisu was good; it had very little flavor.
