Description: In 1998, a great location and the desire to produce superb pizza led Dan and Ken Bothman to create La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza. An immediate sensation, Dan and Ken's restaurant was showered with acclaim, winning the Best New Business and Bellingham's Best Pizza awards, as well as garnering two Best Recipe awards in the National Association of Pizza Operators (NAPO) International Recipe Contest. But stellar pizza isn't the only reason to visit La Fiamma. The stylish decor and vibrant atmosphere delight and entice both young and old and everyone in between. You can witness the display of a pizza's progression through the kitchen (kids love it), or you can relax in our heated outdoor dining area, and catch an amazing sunset over the San Juan Islands. The La Fiamma experience is always a fusion of personality, ambience, and incredible food.

“Best pizza ever”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Last day of vacation and in the mood for pizza so we checked out La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza. If you appreciate small town atmosphere then downtown Bellingham is the place. Such a welcoming and delightful area. Greeted and seated immediately. Lots of locals eating so you know it's good. Sat outside. It was overcast and windy so they had the outside heaters on. Perfect. Ordered the salad. Their house made dressing is delicious. Family ordered the meat pizza. Best pizza ever. The wood fire makes the crust perfect. Order a glass of wine or an ice cold beer to make the meal.

“The BEST”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Perfect crust and ample toppings. Service along with it! A 'Go to' restaurant in Bellingham. Sit on the deck and enjoy the sun. Monitor how many 'families' are inside because it can get kind of loud.

“Fun pizza experience!”

Not only is the pizza great - including wonderful, non-traditional flavors, but you can watch the masters throw dough and shape your beautiful pie! Go there now

“If in Bellingham, Go Here!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Nothing went wrong with our visit. Nothing. Plenty went right.

The top reasons to go here:

Great overall pizza.
One of the better sauces.
House-made ginger beer (NA)
House-made sausage-the best sausage I've had on pizza. Ever.
Ginger beer.
Great desserts.
Did I mention ginger beer?
Great service. Very impressive. On a Friday, nonetheless.
(...lightweight chairs-just a thought)
Best ginger beer I have had-ever. Better than the best of Seattle.

Fun atmosphere. Good food. Even better ginger beer!

“Excellent pizza”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We found this pizza place well rated on Urbanspoon and so we decided to check it out. The wait was really long, but we had time to kill so we waited. We had the mediterranean chips and salsa and the meatball pot to start. We tried the Major Grigio veggie pizza which was ok. We also had the Finn pizza - pesto and shrimp and the Potato Gorgonzola + Fennel Sausage. The seafood and sausage pizzas were excellent!
