I have eaten at this restaurant several times while staying at a nearby hotel. The food is homemade and delicious. There are no warmed over frozen entrees served here. I have had a delicious greens and bread crumb salad with breaded veal strips, a spaghetti and meatballs entrée, a broiled salmon dish, and a pink vodka sauce pasta entrée with... More

Drinks were very good as well. The service was great, and they even offered to drive us back to our hotel when it started... More

Everything was fantastic for a Saturday night 5:30 reservation. Not crowded upon arrival but very much so when leaving. Steak pizza appetizer was fantastic and loaded with ingredients ranging from steak to vegetables. Main course and side portion sizes are generous and prepared perfectly based upon this one experience. Even the simple dipping oil for the free bread was seasoned... More

Every time we visit family in Allentown we come here first and normally more than once!! The food is fantastic and the service is great. They recently updated the interior and it is beautiful. I wish we could get food like this in Oklahoma!!

Seven out of towners descended on this wonderful restaurant the night before a half marathon race. Sat at bar waiting for table to become available and had great conversation with barkeeps. Local beers on tap offered samples before ordering, and our delicious red wine was poured into a chilled decanter before transferred to red wine glass. Wonderful! People loved the... More

We went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We were seated promptly and the waitress came right away. A generous basket of hot fresh bread with olive oil and herbs for dipping was quickly served. My Caesar salad was cold and crisp with a generous portion of homemade croutons. Hubby's house salad was also cold and crisp with a nice... More

There are lots of small Italian joints all over the Mid-Atlantic where you can get Pizza, Stromboli, Cheese Steaks and Pasta. Some of these places take it to the next level with authentic Italian fare that includes Seafood and steak entrees with outstanding al Forno selections. Taste of Italy Ristorante is one of those Italian gems that can provide you... More
