Wonderful

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).

Had the crab Mac n cheese and it was delicious. Delicious food as always and great service to match. Been going there for years and love it.

I love veal but there are few places that get it right. Taste of Italy has the best tasting veal I have ever had. I also usually always get the veal Florentine which is probably the best way I have ever had veal prepared and I have yet to find another restaurant outside of a Grisafi family owned restaurant that...

We stumbled upon this delightful place while staying overnight at the Hilton. Wow! What an outstanding meal we had! The service and friendliness by our bartender John was also a delight! I would go out of my way to dine there again and my mouth is watering as I write!

Three of us enjoyed our dinners and a bottle of wine. Our waitress was pleasant and the atmosphere was nice for the place being in a strip mall. We would gladly return!
