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.

Had a reservation for 845pm and was seated at 5pm to a dirty table with dirty plates and no silverware.

The drink given to my girlfriend tasted like rubbing alcohol mixed with olive juice and jalapeños. She asked for a Virgin cocktail...

Asked waiter for his recommendations and the chicken dish I got was as hard and crunchy as can be. My girlfriend tried to return her pasta dish for something else, but the waiter said the kitchen the kitchen was closed.

The waiter gave us a discount but on my statement I was charged over 99 dollars for disgusting food and drinks while sitting at a filthy table.

My worst experience in Rochester- avoid.

Loved the atmosphere here! Food was delicious as usual. Service was good as well. We all felt a little uncomfortable towards the end and felt like we were being rushed out. It was maybe 9:15PM when they turned the music off. It was a wednesday and their website said they closed at 10PM which is why we chose to go there. Just a little disappointing. Will definitely come back though! Maybe earlier next time.

The atmosphere was wonderful, the staff was amazing, the food was beautifully plated and tasty. Some of the dishes were saltier than I would have liked, but I will definitely go back and try different options.

Waiter was pleasant enough to start with, but he rattled through the specials so quickly and quietly it was very hard to understand him.

The appetizer was not hot, barely warm.
My wife's pizza was delivered to table uncut and a very cheap pizza wheel cutter provided.
My meal (the spicy-cream-sauce-drenched bone-in pork chops) was the only bright spot.

We were offered a glass of wine precisely once. I would have had two more if given the chance. Alas our waiter couldn't be bother to stop by and check in with us.

And to cap off a terrible experience I had to get up, walk over to our waiter and ask for the check.

Awful, my wife will have to work hard to get me to agree to ever come here. I'm not that sure she is willing either.

Went out on a date with my wife(something we don’t get to do very often) and had an amazing evening. Did not know what I wanted to eat, but was very please with my choice. Our waiter was fantastic(I think his name was Dom).

Best Italian in rochester! The rigatoni al forno would be my last meal if I had to decide. Rochester pizza bomb. The scamporza appetizer was so ooey gooey. You can’t go wrong. Literally everything is amazing.

Eating out during COVID can be nerve wracking. The staff was constantly cleaning and making sure they adhered to the regulated capacity. Then hostesses did a great job enforcing the mask policy.
Food was fantastic!

The reason I was not able to give my experience 5 stars which I anticipated was because our waiter was not wearing a mask. Was alarmed and disappointed especially since several restaurants closed recently due to staff having COVID

Food was delicious, and service was excellent. It was a busy Saturday night and noise was moderate downstairs where we were sitting. The restaurant has great ambience - but we could have used more light to read the menu and see the food.

My first visit, the interior was very comfortable, with lots of different seating areas. A bit noisy but we were able to have a conversation. All the draft ( craft) beers were IPA's, which was disappointing.

It was a nightmare. It started out well. Bar staff was friendly and attentive. The waitress at the table took our orders and made some suggestions so far ok. Then it fell apart. Party of 6 food came out after a long wait but not all of it Three of us did not get served while others patiently waited. Ugh so now theirs is cooling quickly. After several attempts to get answers. One person from the group left the table and tracked down our waitress. She seemed surprise about our dinners not arriving. It went on and on. My veal finally arrive raw. Left it all. The manger came to the table with no great explanations. When entrees arrived they were delivered by another wait person. Not our originally wait staff. He had NO idea where to place the meal. When we told him he reached across a large table and stretched to set it down. It was strange. They offered coffee and dessert to offset the dinner. Not even close. All we wanted was a nice dinner I will never return. The only reason I wrote this is to help others. Find another place to eat.

Waited 15 mins before we were even greeted at the door. Our waiters mask kept falling down and he brought my husband the wrong pork chop. The rest of us had finished our meals and were already boxing them up when the correct meal arrived for him. The waiter took off one margarita. Drinks took forever, appetizers came with no serving spoons, food expediters were rushed and not familiar with any of the food items they delivered. My chicken and eggplant was way over cooked. The restaurant was extremely loud.

This restaurant is a hidden gem!! The food, service and ambiance was so great that I went back several days latter with some girlfriends. I recommend the chicken breast topped with eggplant, ricotta cheese, tomatoes and topped with apesto glaze. Sooooo good!! My husband had the lamb meatloaf and loved it. The salads are huge and can be split between 2 to 3 people easily. We went home with plenty of leftovers. Love this restaurant!
