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.

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We just had one of the worst dining experiences we've had in a long time. Waited quite awhile to be seated at this restaurant, waited forever for waitress, waited forever for drinks to arrive, we were so tired of waiting we almost bolted. Pizza was dry and disappointing. Lots of crust. I never write bad reviews, but I can't resist sharing our experience this time around.

“Not Real Pizza”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Sorry Folks! If your looking for "True American Pizza" it can't be had here. Real American pizza comes from NYC.....ANYTHING ELSE IS NOT REAL PIZZA. With exception of Chicago's deep dish pizza, which is actually too thick to be anything immigrants from Italy brought over from Italy. Anyway, La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza taste nothing like real wood fire pizza. It is another example of what I call cardboard raw dough pizza. Don't waste your money! I just wish people who open pizza places would visit NYC to get the real taste.

“Yummy pizza and good value.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

On our drive back from Vancouver we stopped in Bellingham to eat lunch before our flight home. This place was highly ranked so we decided to stop. The service was great and the pizza was really good. There was a lunch special that included a small salad that was really good and a personal sized pizza. This was a super awesome deal and exactly what we were looking for after eating out in Vancouver (expensive!). Would highly recommend.

“If Heaven serves pizza, they must get it from La Fiamma”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

La Fiamma serves the best pizza in Bellingham! The crust is thin and crispy with a hint of char from the oven. The sauce to topping ratio is painstakingly proportioned so as not to overwhelm the perfect crust. My favorite pizza is the simple yet scrumptious pepperoni. More adventurous pizzas can be found on the menu. To make your meal even better, try dipping your pizza in a side of their house-made Sudden Valley ranch.

“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.
