Good Italian Food, Fresh Garlic With The Bread

Tasty Italian food at a reasonable price. The owners and staff are pleasant and the restaurant has many regulars. The garlic that comes with the bread is the freshest that I've experienced at any restaurant.

Family owned and run Italian restaurant. Pizza is our favorite! Fresh made and many choices to suit your taste buds. We have not eaten dinners here but the displays always look scrumptious. They are always busy, so that's a sign the good is good. The owners are friendly and personable.

If you are looking for authentic Italian food, and garlic that will put hair on your chest, THIS IS THE PLACE! Each and every time we visit Allentown (my birthplace) we MUST visit Paese Mio! We LIVE for their garlic knots, and everything else they have is amazing! Another family owned place, where we like to frequent, that never disappoints!... More

My husband and I have been going here for 15+ years and have never been disappointed with food or service. We have had baby showers , retirement dinners and many family celebrations as well. From a salad to a gourmet dinner , everything is great and the complimentary garlic rolls are to die for . The outside covered patio was... More

We decided to leave Dorney park, so we could eat outside and save a buck. Wrong! We got nasty overpriced chef Boyardee...and it still cost around $70 for three of us.This place is a double wide trailer, built into the ground. It has a single restroom which I did not get to use because someone was locked in there the... More

In the mood for Italian comfort food and this place fit the bill exactly. Wide selection of reasonably priced staples with generous portions (we split the eggplant parm with a side of sausage). BYOB, but offered a complementary glass of wine. We sat on the outside porch, and it was heavenly.

We had a group of 23 people celebrating a special birthday. The entire staff was wonderful and very accommodating. Each meal is prepared individually so I was able to tell them how to prepare my meal since I have some food issues. Couldn't have asked for more. One of my favorite places!

Great garlic rolls to start. Excelent service. Very good specials. Doesn't look like much outside but worth the visit.

Allentown is a regular stop for us as we come and going from Florida/New Hampshire. We looked on TripAdvisor for a place to eat, saw several places but nothing that we felt like, so we continued to look. We came across Paese Mio and sure glad we did, we thought this place was great.
