Best Italian in the Lehigh Valley

This place never disappoints! Way more authentic Italian food than any chain restaurant, my favorite place in the whole Lehigh Valley. The menu has a nice variety, and it reasonably priced.

My family and I recently ate at this charming little restaurant (don't be fooled by the strip mall location) and enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service by both the waiter and the manager! I have a garlic intolerance/allergy and the manager, Alex, went out of his way to accommodate my dietary restrictions. I wish we lived in the area... More

This is a very comfortable restaurant. Very good for a business meeting when you don't want to share your conversation with the other customers. The food is excellent and so is the service. Good wine list.

A true diamond in the rough amidst a shopping center! I was pleasantly surprised by their selection, quality and staff. Service is top-notch, food is consistently good and their selection makes it an easy choice for mixed crowds. Their spice mix with olive oil (for dipping) is to die for!!! Only caveat is if I eat too much bread I... More

Had to go back for a meal again. They were a little slow but there were 17 of us. The staff were wonderful as always and the food is always delicious. I ordered 3 apps and 1 entree. I was full before the entree even came so I had to take it home. For the apps you have to try... More

We had a business lunch here and the food was very good. We ordered pasta Primavera, Lasagna, and meatball parm. The oil with spices is terrific on their homemade bread. The marinara is a little sweet for me but the lasagna was some of the best I've had.

Food is always, always very good, and hot. One of the few restaurants the meal is at the right temperature when it is served. The servers are pleasant, and efficient. The bartenders Talia, and Carmello always aim to please. When the owner Paul is there, he takes the time to chat with the customers, which adds a personal touch to... More

The food was amazing, and the prices were fair! The service was perfect in every way, from the moment we walked in to the moment we left! Our waitress, Linda, was very personable and very efficient. She made our first visit very enjoyable, she was great!

I have to say the place is really nice. I liked the decor and the overall ambiance. The food was good. I had the penne w/ pink vodka sauce. I have had it at other places that tastes much better. But it was still good, not great. I would probably be back if I am in the area and try... More
