Always great food and service. A neighborhood gem which I visit often. Never opened the menu, the specials are always the way to go.

We were there for Valentine’s Day dinner and we’re really pleasantly surprised. The food was great. The maitre’d was very welcoming, and service was good. When we arrive our table was ready. Would definitely go back.

A most enjoyable lunch with 2 other couples. Ramone made sure we were happy with everything. His service was outstanding!! The food was excellent. Three of us had the special lobster tail and shrimp scampi and all agree it was delicious. Two of us had the shrimp scampi...just as delicious. We had a lot of wine so I don't remember what the 6th person had lol but there were no complaints. Looking forward to dining there again!

WOW! What a delightful surprise to find this restaurant. It is tucked in a neighborhood in Harrison, NJ. Well worth taking a short drive to dine here. It is close to anyone staying at the hotels near Newark Airport.

Home made gnocchis were yummy, eggplant rollatini hit the spot, home made desserts make for a nice ending to your meal. We had the lovely raspberry and blackberry filled panna cotta.

Also, perfect for anyone who is a vegetarian. Lots of options besides a salad.

Feel, friendly and attentive wait staff, especially Angelo make for a wonderful and relaxing experience.

Everyone from the host to the servers, to the bar keep, were all so enthusiastic. Welcomed broadly and loudly, seated immediately. Very welcoming banter with our group of 6. The food was quite good, imaginative, and fresh. Would HIGHLY recommend this for groups of 2 to 6! While it looks like a neighborhood bar, don't be put off. Once inside, you'll see that it is sooo much more......

What a gem! Incredibly friendly staff - fantastic food. Delicious home made desserts. An overall fantastic meal! Can’t wait to go back - for those headed there for the first time the stuffed veal chop was off the charts, as was the tuna piccata special, the shrimp w marinara appetizer delicious!!!

Quiet 'old school' Italian - the service was fantastic. My 'ribeye' was cooked to perfection. My 3 friends had the nights special- Chicken, rolled with spinach cheese - they raved about it. We'll be back.

Food and service are excellent. Angelo and Ramone took great care of us. My wife asked for something not on the menu, and it was no problem for them to make it for her. The next time we are in Harrison we will be sure to stop by.

Second time here, second time in New Jersey. If we lived near, THIS would be our favorite Italian restaurant.

Salads and soups were all hits. Specials change up and the fish didn’t disappoint. Wine selections were spot on.

We had dinner with friends on Thursday night at La Fiamma and had an excellent meal. The service was very professional and the servers very friendly. The bruschetta, salads and appetizers were delicious. Our entrees of salmon livornese, cod and shrimp with linguini were fabulous. The homemade desserts of ricotta cheesecake and tiramisu were enjoyed by us all. We look forward to a return visit.

This is a true gem. Authentic Italian with the feel of passion from the staff. The food is brilliantly prepared and the service is naturally spot on. You know when staff has been trained to take care of you but here they take care of you naturally. There is nothing fake about this restaurant. Purely authentic. All for a reasonable price.
