A Great Value for Good Italian Food-Service was Superb

We went on a Friday night prior to a show at the Civic Theatre. I saw fellow reviewer's comments on service and can only say, that was not our experience. We were seated promptly (without reservations) and our waiter, "Freddy", was there in a minute. He did the beverage solicitation and our... read more

I live very near by this restaurant. They server excellent Italian fare better than most. But the last TWO times I visited this restaurant, the service was horrible. We went two weeks ago, when there was a large party of 15 or so. We waited nearly an hour for our food, which finally arrived grossly undercooked. We spoke with the... More

Though we live in northern New England, my wife and I have dined more than a dozen times at Bellissimo, sometimes just for the two of us, or with a group. When we visit Allentown, we always dine there. The garlic rolls are to kill for! The food is excellent. The wine list is very reasonable but not fancy. The... More

We stayed in town for the weekend after coming in from NJ for a concert. Last night happened to be Valentines Day 2015. We had no plans for dinner and no reservations. We rode by this restaurant. It looked inviting so we stopped in. Unfortunately for us they were jam packed full with reservations and we couldnt get a table.... More

After reading some of the reviews, I was hesitant to go. But a few coworkers at the plant I was visiting recommended I go. I can't judge the experiences of others, but the service was great for my visit. The staff was helpful and knowledgable and I never had to wait for anything, other than for dinner to settle for...

OK, first time in Allentown, with a buddy on business and we agree on not wanting to eat in hotels. We roamed around near the center, and came across Bellissimo. Looked good, we went in. We got a non-greeting by someone, possibly the owner, whose cool, non-caring response to our arrival made me want to turn around, it was that... More

Wewe walked into the restaurant on 12/31/2013 at approx 845pm. After being sat at a table we waited about 20min not one single person came over to us. The owner made his rounds..not even once looking our direction. Waitors and waitresses were going to every table around us..boxing up leftovers..giving out checks..collecting money but not one person came to ask... More

We were there for dinner. There was empty table, but nobody was cleaning it up. Waited forever to get a table. When we sit down, no waitor came by and asked anything. Evetyone seemed so busy doing something. Finally we orderded and the food was goood. Maybe next time we will try a little earlier.

The Bellissimo Ristorante is one of the few restaurants in the Allentown area that serves excellent fare every time. Portions are on the large side but that's Allentown. Daily specials are worth asking about and trying even if you, like me have a house specialty. Service isn't speedy but if you want fast food, go to a fast food franchise.... More

I took my family for dinner for the first time to Bellissimo today. We live nearby and my husband had always wanted to go to try the brick oven pizza. The atmosphere was nice, a little bit too dark for me, but everything looked very clean which is always a plus. Our waitress was very attentive and patient with our... More
