Great Start

The bread, salad, and appetizer were a great start. The dinners were good but missing something, maybe more seasoning. Otherwise a very good meal.

The food is not even close to the real Italian food. Pasta is overcooked soaked in a ton of fatty sauce. The service is literally terrible the attendant was really unpleasant and she wasn't not anything about the menu. They missed the orders, mix checked the bill.

The food is outstanding and ranges from subs and pizza to authentic Italian dinners. Prices are fair and the service is typically very good. It's our favorite restaurant in Allentown.

This place is a bit hidden in a strip mall, but worth seeking out. It is nicely decorated and well kept. Our server Mary was knowledgeable and extremely friendly and attentive. The sandwiches at lunch are wonderful and come with your drink and choice of side. I had a BLT Hoagie and it was loaded with bacon that was cooked... More

If you find yourself in the Allentown, PA area, I highly recommend having lunch or dinner at Taste of Italy. Located in a little strip mall, it would be easy to overlook this restaurant if you're just driving by, but once you're inside, you'll soon realize that the hip-casual ambiance and bountiful menu provide diners with some great food options...

It is by far one of our favorite Italian places to eat. If we go for a full dinner or just appetizers and salad we are never disappointed. The portions are large so we always have enough for another meal. Highly recommend eating here.

The service was perfect, professional, attentive but not intrucive. Hot loaves of bread were served before our lunch. There are many choices from appetizers to sandwiches, soups, salads, antipasto and hot dishes. The eggplant parmisan was the best I ever had with choice of pasta. The portions are large. The side salad could have been the whole meal for me.... More

I went here because it was close to hotel and because of rating. I was disappointed. The sauce was thin and bland, no flavor. Menu said hearty sauce, this was not hearty. The portion size was was great. I had chicken cacciatore, value worth it. Although veggies were overcooked. Caesar salad was very good as was bread. The place was... More
