Love this place

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

It is always a pleasant experience eating here....and the Martina's are excellent. The room is also filled with the sound of Classic Italian music.

Loved this place! The décor, the warm bread and oil, the Italian wedding soup. It wasn't overly priced at all. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

We were looking for a good restaurant in the Allentown area on a Sunday and we found a Taste of Italy with a party of 8. The food, service and price was very good.

We found Taste of Italy Bar and Grill thanks to the manager of the hotel we stayed in - it was close by at the end of a busy day so we thought we'd try it. The strip shopping mall leaves a lot to be desired but once we were inside the restaurant it was another story. What a great... More

Went in with the girlfriend on a whim, as we were craving Italian food, and had driven past the place so many times without stopping. We are very happy that we did. Interior is very clean and nice. Our server was very attentive without being overbearing, and corrected a minor drink mixup by letting me keep the old drink for... More

Great food, great service, brand new very chique deco, and tasty Italian food across the whole menu. Two tweaks, actually strong suggestions... I'd like to see a less stingy bowl of wedding soup. REALLY, fill up the bowl halfway? Completely authentic Italian restaurants use REAL mushrooms for pizza toppings, NOT canned mushrooms (rubber boogies).
