Fiamma is a full service authentic Italian Restaurant featuring the first truly authentic Neapolitan Wood burning pizza oven in Monroe county. With an all natural flame our oven maintains an internal temperature of 1000 degrees cooking the pizza in 45 seconds leaving it with a truly unique taste and texture. The rest of our menu is reflective of traditional southern italian dishes native to the Campania region. With diverse ingredients and seasonal fruits and vegetables we strive to offer only the freshest available seasonal dishes. As the seasons change so will our menu.

The small, quaint dining room was designed to resemble an old fashioned Italian osteria. Rich with wood and other earth elements Fiamma is a warm inviting atmosphere. The Italian countryside was inspiration for both the menu and the dining space. While at Fiamma you will be greeted with a smile, and treated like family.

Was ok. 2nd time there. The busboy there is an animal. We tipped him personally. He did more for us than the waiter. My mom asked for steak sauce and he kind of rudely replied that they don't have any. Kind of crazy to not have anything for your steak no sauce or dip. Other than that it was good. It's EXTREMELY loud in there.

This was our second time back as we all loved it the first time, however this time was not up to par. The hostess was extremely rude, definitely not a people person. The restaurant is very loud so much so you could barely carry on a conversation without screaming across the table at each other. Menu is not very clear as to what is included with the entrees which is nothing but a few strands of arugula and a couple of tomatoes. The waiter was friendly but not very outgoing and ditched our table towards the end of our meal. The bus boy was a fast worker, mgmt. orders I’m sure, however after the 3rd time he came by asking to clear my plate I had to tell him to stay away until he seen my plate empty. We will not be back!

Extremely loud. Could not care on a conversation.
It was not clear what was included with dinner…on entrees apparently nothing. No note of this on menu.

It was good. My only complaint is I received a $16 glass of Cabernet in a white wine glass with a VERY WEAK pour. I would’ve been embarrassed serving that to a customer.

Credit Card Surcharge of 3.25%! Wine marked up over 3X retail! Really loved the food, but they overcharge for food (especially salads and pizza), the wine is marked up over 3 X retail, and they then have the nerve to tack on a large credit card surcharge.

My only complaint is that is was a little noisy at times which made it hard to hear the people at my table. Other than that, couldn’t ask for better!

Service was slow to get started, we were greeted and then sat for over 10 minutes before our server came over. Once the server came, the service went well & our meal was delicious.

We were out for a bachelor evening and Fiammo Centro had a 7 person table available the same day. Our group had a variety of adventurous eating levels represented and everybody was able to find something they liked. The atmosphere was cozy, the service was very good and the food was delicious.

Food was tasty and the server was very helpful and attentive. We wanted to end the evening with cups of coffee and were told there was no creamer, milk or any other substitution available for after dinner coffee. That ended the evening on a low point I must say. What restaurant kitchen doesn’t have any milk or cream !!!!

We were placed at the table by the front door and the bar. The noise was overwhelming. One guest requested no cheese on his salad except Mozzarella. He had many slices of shaved parmesan which he is allergic to. No focus on the order.

Always fantastic authentic Italian food. We dined outside it was very cozy. I feel they could omit one table to give a little more room to get in and out. Yes they have umbrellas on the tables but some awnings would be nice. Otherwise you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

Excellent food , staff and ambiance. My friend from NYC commented that it had a very NYC vibe. It’s a hidden gem in Rochester. It is quite loud but that makes it fun. You can also eat at the bar which might be a little quieter.

Nicely decorated with vintage fixtures and reused old tables and chairs. The staff is friendly and check on you often. The portions are large so you might want to rethink bringing little ones to eat here for the prices. We would definitely go back.

Food is absolutely fresh and delicious- best Italian (most genuine!) in Roc for sure. However it’s VERY noisy, we could barely hear each other talk- and overpriced. We paid $100 for 3 appetizers, 1 pizza and 1 glass of wine. Will go again for the quality of food though !

Apart from how loud the restaurant was, our experience at Fiamma was exceptional. The quality of the food and service are some of the best you will find in Rochester.

First visit here. Got seated immediately (had reservations for 7 people). Server came quickly and took drink orders. Returned with drinks read to take orders. We were told we had to order appetizers and food at the same time. (Never heard of this before) Apps came quickly and were very good. Food arrived just as soon as we finished apps. Food was delicious. Never got asked about dessert (maybe they don't offer).

The entire outing was very rushed and a little uncomfortable. I understand table turnover, but this was ridiculous. I will try once more, but I know a few members of our party were extremely irritated by the rush and will not return. They restaurant also lost a lot of revenue as our party tends to have several cocktails before, during and after dinner.

We were an early seating (6:15) so I am sure they were turning the table over. Still no cause to rush 7 people through dinner in an hour. Not a pleasurable experience.

All was very good! Pizzas are delicious! We had three apps as well. Meatballs and eggplant were great! The grilled octopus was a bit chewy. That’s the only thing that I wasn’t crazy about.

The food is good but they really need to consider allowing substitutions. They are very rigid on this and it's off-putting. For example, our party was craving fried calamari. They only had it combined with fried smelt. They wouldn't allow us to order it leaving out the smelt. They could be doing more business. Word of mouth can be a great advertisement or hurt their business.

I’ve been here once before and it was excellent - this most recent time it was great again, however I was just a little disappointed with my food. Pizza was a little over cooked/ too charred for my liking. Other than that everything was awesome!

Parking is limited so mostly street parking. Service was good. Cauliflower appetizer was very good. Entrees arrived fast … a bit too fast. Pizza was good except for the black crust in spots. I thought I’d be safe ordering risotto but it was an oily mess. I should have sent it back but I tried eating some. It was tasteless and floating in oil. Tried taking the rest home but when I got home the oil leaked through the carry out container and was all over the plastic bag it was encased in.

Promptly seat and waiter was immediately ready to help us with drinks and specials. We had planned our dinner early so reading the menu wasn’t necessary. Food was fantastic and we’ll definitely be back.
