Fiamma Trattoria - Mamaroneck - A gem!

Fiamma is a must go! I have been there 6 or 7 times since it opened in June. The food is always excellent and the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the size of the portions which are generous. The place is very laid back and relaxed. Don’t miss the fresh mozzarella which the chef says is made fresh there every day. The fresh pastas (flat ones) are great as is anything with the Bolognese on it. The lobster manicotti is amazing. Polenta based apps are super. I never order steak out but the Rib eye with with the mushrooms and caramelized onions has such a nice grilled taste to it that I would order it again and have. Veal and eggplant dishes are super. Very good crusty bread and for desert try the Nutella calzone with bananas and ice cream. YUM! Be aware the place is small and fills up early. Also, since everything is fresh they can run out of some things on the weekends and when they are packed service can be slow BUT the food is well worth the wait.

      I haven't been but was also interested in learning more about the place.

      501 Halstead Avenue
      Mamaroneck, New York 10543

      Couldn't find menu/website other than Facebook, which has photos of blackboard with their dishes. Not great photos, but will give you an idea of dishes/prices.

      Hope this helps.

    2. We ate there a few months ago and went back last weekend. I have to agree that this is a great neighborhood spot. Fresh pastas are excellent, you can also mix & match (I wanted the pasta with clams, pancetta and tomato but with the fresh pasta not the orriecette per the menu .... not a problem!). Price is reasonable.

      The fresh mozzarella was excellent the first time we were there ... but blah this past time.

      One caveat, relevant for these winter months -- the place is COLD! It's a small restaurant without a double-door or even a curtain, so every time someone opens the door the room gets cold.

      The place gets real busy/loud/crowded weekends from 8-9, and the fresh pastas run out so try to get there early if you want fresh pasta.
