Best Italian fare we’ve had since we moved here from New York area. The Frito Misto appetizer was delicious and so were our entrees. Our server did a great job detailing the numerous amount of specials and offered great wine selections. We look forward to dining here again.

Three people in our group ordered one of the specials that evening and it was very disappointing. One piece of the seafood was not edible. We should have complained and did not. We left very unfulfilled after looking forward to a very nice meal.

It might have been an off night... but sitting outside to enjoy the beautiful weather next to their dead plants at a lopsided table probably wasn’t the best start to the night. Our server was absolutely amazing, but the food was lack luster. Undercooked risotto, water sauces and generally bland flavors.

Dining at Fiamma is like a wonderful evening dinner in Italy - family oriented, unhurried time together enjoying delicious food and wine . We sat in the back in a quiet table that was perfect for a long evening of good conversation and celebration of enjoying life. A treasure in Charlotte.

Fabrizio did an excellent job with his service and attention to detail as we love Fiamma as our special place to dine true Italian and we were hosting 2 family members who are visiting us for the weekend. They loved it and raved about the whole experience. Truly a fire of love and fine dining for us

The floors were wet all through out our meal. We were there a couple of hours. It was slick throughout the entir restaurant.(that was a worry. )The water came up through floors . It was not from rain. Our waiter , while friendly , interrupted us a lot . He was disheveled.....and , may have been intoxicated.
For our first time, I was surprised. We went here on recommendation. The food was average

Went for my son’s birthday. We were seated promptly and service was initially pretty good. As the evening commenced, we seemingly got forgotten as our server was preoccupied with newer tables. He seemed a little out of it as well. Either he was half in the bag or completely overwhelmed. Who knows. Food was excellent as usual and overall it was a great experience if not a little strange. Oh well. Will definitely return, but maybe a different server next time...

Went during restaurant week. Food was very good. Atmosphere nice neighborhood feel.

Service was terrible. The maître’d took 10 minutes even show up at the front even to greet us after we arrived on time for our reservations. The staff were young, not very polite and abrupt. They clearly hit were not trained in the art Of customer service and making people feel like they wanted to be there.We couldn’t blame It on just one waitress since probably Four different people touched our table or came to our table during the two hours we were there. They really need to shake up there waitstaff.

Of the three restaurants we went to during queen fest, this was well below the rating of the other two.

Proscuitto e melon and the scallop appetizer were the hit of the table. Veal ossobuco was delicious, monkfish and branzino were very tasty. Chose a bottle of a super tuscan wine and it was yummy. Luigi was our server and did not disappoint our service was excellent. The desserts we tried cheesecake, tiramisu and creme tostada, everyone agreed that they were great and all had less sugar; allowing you to taste the ingredients. We had dinner on July 29, 2018-Queen's Feast.

We were there to try a new place during restaurant week and the menu options were extensive compared to other participating establishments. Our waiter was very friendly and the food was great. The atmosphere is a little romantic but a bit noisy so hard to hold a conversation without feeling like you need to yell. We had a bit of a wait between dinner and dessert but not bad enough to keep us from going back, as we understood they may be a bit busier than normal.

Mixed emotions on this one. We've been before and loved it. This time around it was OK. Even with reservations it took us a long time to be seated - and it was 5:15, not necessarily prime time. The hostess was in no hurry and looked to have been given extra responsibilities (clearing extra plates & glasses) that others could have handled so she could seat guests sooner. It really should not have taken 15 min to be seated. It was restaurant week, and their menu had great offerings, however it did feel a bit pushed - like if you go out on Valentine's day. Very quick in, quick order, quick food, quick out. * The good part was the food! * The Burrata with salad was SO good, probably my favorite part of the meal. Our pastas were good and the tiramisu was good as well. I would NOT recommend the cheese cake though. It was so dry that it felt like a dried out sponge cake :(. No creaminess about it at all. You could also see that the sides were burnt. Because of past visits we're willing to give the restaurant another try. We are a bit disappointed with this last visit and hope to have a different experience next time.

My first visit to Fiamma's on Saturday evening was phenominal. From the moment we arrived, I noticed the wonderful ambiance and we were immediately escorted to our table without waiting. Our server and all who attended our table were most gracious and polite. We felt like family. The food was magnificent and all I can say is that the restaurant is the best kep secret in Charlotte. I certainly shared my joy and enthusiasm with my family and friends after our visit and will be back again. Thank you for making this visit a night to remember.

WOW!!! Went here not realizing it was restaurant week, but glad it was. Extensive 3 course menu was being offered for a very fair price with no uplifts like some other places do. Excellent selection of appetizers, entrees and deserts. Everyone at our table was pleased with their meal. Only negative if I had to pick one is the drinks are a bit pricey, although they make the best mojito in town. Please was completely filled so the noise was a bit louder than on a normal night.

We went for Charlotte Restaurant Week, so the restaurant was VERY BUSY. The food is excellent, but the staff was overwhelmed and couldn't keep up. At our table of 4 people the plates never came out even close to the same time for any of the courses. We'll go back another time when it is less busy.
