A full and highly varied menu with excellent specials,Four of us ate dinner and the meat and fish dishes were wonderful and varied served extremely well.Prices were an equal surprise as they were well below N.Y. restaurant as well as the better local N.J. restaurant prices,Any time we are into Newark for a show we will go here first.

We had a lovely evening. We were greeted right away and taken to a nicely set table. Every server who came to our table was helpful and friendly. Besides the menu they had a long list of specials. We were given a serving of bruschetta and a basket of delicious warm Italian bread.
Our entrees were a nice size and just the right temperature.
The owner stopped by and thanked us for coming.
They have a parking area behind the restaurant.
I repeat—we had a lovely evening.

This was my fourth time at Fiamma and, while the items on the menu sound great, I have never made it past the daily specials! All the dishes so far have been great.

Initial Greeting was overtly friendly. Manager came to our table, explained menu, took our order. He also was friendly. Food was outstanding. Local atmosphere, felt like a local neighborhood Italian restaurant. Prices very reasonable. Very good drink and wine selection. Would definitely go back again. Pre Theater (NJPAC) dinner. Worked out very well.

Gem of a restaurant in Harrison. Great place to go for dinner before heading to an event at NJPAC. Varied wine and beer menu, solid appetizers and satisfying dinner. Staff is attentive, making sure you get to your show on time. Looking forward to coming back.

Hiding in plain sight. Neighborhood gem that serves up classic Italian dishes and creative specials. Fresh ingredients and welcoming and attentive staff make this place a "go to" spot whenever I am within 25 miles of Newark. Forget the "Iron bound." If going to NJPAC or the Prudential Center, add La Fiamma to your itinerary. Outstanding value. Great food, great service, great people (Angelo, Felix and Jessica) in a very pleasant, comfortable environment. What more can you ask for?

Birthday celebration and the food was outstanding. I had a house salad with a veal chop as the main course The veal chop was tender and flavorful and was in a very tasty wine sauce. I had a nut cake with ice cream for dessert which was delicious.

My companion had the trout special which was a large fillet stuffed with crab meat. Both the veal and trout were large portions served with ample vegetable and potato.

Only complaints would be the bread was a little on the stale side which we pointed out and the time to get our food was a little lengthy but well worth it.

Overcooked pasta for that price is unacceptable. I've had pasta in dive Italian restaurants and pizza places that was better.

Chose this place based on the reviews (lunch prior to a show at the Prudential Center). The service was wonderful, the food was DELICIOUS! Variety of specials for the day (even during lunch) and great portion sizes. We will definitely stop again when in town.

We discovered La Fiamma through a recommendation from our hotel. It was a gem of a find. The food was just like Mama made it and the service was very attentive. It is a bit of an odd combination of a sports bar and finer dining restaurant all in one room, but it wasn't busy when we were there so noise wasn't a problem. The staff brought a tasty piece of tiramisu for our daughters birthday celebration.

What a great find in Harrison. We were warmly greeted and welcomed and seated immediately. The service was outstanding, the food delicious and the atmosphere, while not fancy, just perfect for our group of 8. We all enjoyed our dinner and the staff were all wonderful. This restaurant moves to the head of the list of our new favorite place!

Delicious food was paired with delightful waitor. The restaurant was full and had a very nice feel. The ravioli were divine perfection. Chocolate soufflé was the best dessert. Service was absolute perfection. If only everyplace could be so charming and full of attentive staff. My 18 year old son off to college grinned from ear to ear when he heard the specials. If I wasn't living in Seattle I would go there regularly.

This is hands down the best restaurant in Harrison NJ. This place will treat you as family, and will accommodate any need you have for your meal. We have been going here for almost 10 years now and it’s been superb every time we go. We had a party of 10 people and everyone finished their plates. I hardly order from the menu since the daily specials are so good and fresh. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion, that romantic date night, or just want to watch a game at the bar. You will be highly pleased. Thank you again La Fiamma and Angelo for the amazing food and service! See you next time we are back in NJ!

If you are looking for an authentic Italian dinner, this is NOT the place. We had two pasta dishes and neither was tasty, or seasoned. My fettucini with clams tasted like Campbells chicken noodle soup with overcooked clams. The Caesar salad was not a Caesar, but rather a mix of greens with a mayonnaise like dressing, it was good but not what it should have been.

The waiter and maitre'D were very nice and tried to do everything to make up for the food. My guess is they just didn't get it. Anyway, the Irish coffees we had after dinner instead of dessert were very good and they didn't charge for the fettucini. I think they have the right attitude, but need an Italian chef/cook to make it work. I wish them the best.
