This was our first and last stop on a fun trip to Flagstaff. First the great smells from the woodfire oven and the warm taverna atmosphere was a comfortable refuge for the February chill. And that first stop was 5 stars, the unique cocktail choices, the pizza, and service were all so good we vowed to return for a 2nd... More

This trip was my first visit to Flagstaff and I am estatic that we found this restaurant. It will be a "must" for all visits from now on. It is a very small, but quaint and cozy, place. We started off with the Stracciatella which was a great start. Freshly made cheese was served with lightly toasted crostini. We added... More

I would give 5 stars, because the pizza we ordered was fantastic, but our server was bi polar and couldn't decide if she wanted to be rude or nice. There was one other table as it was 11 am and they had just opened...so we placed our order of pizza and bread as an appetizer. 10 minutes later the pizza... More

My girlfriend and I are frequent visitors of fat olives. I have always been impressed by the extremely high standards they maintain. Their atmosphere is amazing, their service is exceptional. The menu the Chef John has prepared is top-notch. Everything from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave is perfectly executed.

The focus here is squarely on the food. The restaurant itself is unpretentious, in a somewhat self-effacing kind of way. The service is friendly and unselfconscious. One gets the feeling that everyone working here is a family member, even though this is obviously not the case. This is as close as you will come -- in style and substance --... More

We love love this place, the atmosphere, the people and food that is to die for! This visit we enjoyed the wood fired pizza that oozes with wonderful sauce fresh mozzarella and all of your favorite toppings. If you are really hungry try any of their yummy appetizers. Just as a side note, John and his staff do a fabulous... More

The owner of the place where we are staying in Flagstaff suggested dining here. First off walking in, the aroma was tantalizing. My husband had the lasagna while I had a pizza. Both were amazing. Also, the roasted olives were delicious. Our waitress was attentive, friendly and helpful when we asked questions. Highly recommend!

The food is always fresh and good! It can get crowded so it's great that they take reservations. Best Italian food in Flagstaff

We were craving wood-fired pizza, and this place doesn't disappoint. Had read earlier reviews and expected it to be busy, but we promptly got a seat in the bar area during Happy Hour. We ordered the Stracciatella appetizer (delicious cheese mixture, served with crostini) and the Margherita pizza (tomato sauce, mozzarella, basil). We loved them both. We'll definitely be back...
