Four thousand years ago people built fires in small caves in order to cook food. At La Fiamma the cave has been transformed into an oven, but real wood fire remains the sole source of heat. Apple wood, gleaned from the vast orchards of the Yakima Valley, fuels the fire of our oven. When burned, this wood produces an intense, consistent heat, while also imparting a sumptuous aroma. Our oven creates the ultimate environment for true artisan wood fire pizza. Thus our name, La Fiamma—the Flame! From pepperoni to Moo Shu, the variety of the offerings on our menu satisfies the variety of the characters among our clientele. One taste and you’ll understand why in 6000 years wood fire cooking has never gone out of style.

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 décor 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.
