Nice little Italian restaurant

This restaurant was a nice little find for me. I saw everyone leaving the restaurant with leftovers and was kind of curious as why. I ordered Chicken Parm and understood why. 2 huge chicken breasts and a huge bowl of spaghetti and tasty bread sticks. I took most of it home! I think you would... read more

Stopped for a quick lunch while on a business trip. They had a large group meeting in the back so I expected a "slow down" on service but everything was quick prompt and delicious. They served complimentary bread knots with garlic oil that was fantastic. VERY STRONG GARLIC but that is how I like it! I had a small chef... More

We moved here almost a year ago from Bergen county, New Jersey. New Jersey people really know a good Italian restaurant when they find one. So the other night we asked so,e locals about so,me really authentic New Jersey- New York style Italian food and someone had suggested Paese Mio. Upon ordering and receiving our food, we felt like we... More

Classic Italian food, welcoming owners. The building and seating could use some updating but otherwise the food is excellent IMHO. Entrees from various seafood dishes to your typical pasta are all quite good with generous portions. Even the pizza is quite good. They do bring the bread sometimes swimming in the garlic oil which I love by the way, other... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for the past 10 years and it has been uniformly excellent. Portions are enormous so plan to share. One entrée is more than enough for two people. I highly recommend their pasta Primavera and my kids adore their baked ziti. Pizza is also great-make sure to try their white pizza too!

Each and every time we head to Allentown, PA, this place is a MUST! Even if it's a short trip, we try to squeeze them in at LEAST two to three times. Their garlic bread is heavenly, loaded high with garlic that leaves you feeling free from vampires forever! Their food is excellently prepared, nice cozy and friendly atmosphere, and... More

The Pizza is great. The soups are fabulous. The garlic knots are the best I've ever had. In fact, I have never been able to take more then a bite from anyone else's. Mike and Rosa are gracious hosts. Weekends always busy.

Enjoy them whether for pizza or the wonderful chicken Caesar salad or dinner. Had a very good seafood paella with lobster and shrimp. Bread is always good. Get the garlic on the side. Not fancy but good.

Only 2 miles from the Staybridge Suites West, if that. Read about this on Trip Advisor and Yelp, so we gave it a try. Chucked when we drove up to it, because it has that look of a local independent establishment. Got seated right away. Almost full, and a lot of conversation going on. Some brought their own wine. We... More

My husband and I used to enjoy Paese Mio's food, but not so much lately. The quality has gone down. Also, I never cared for the raw garlic on the bread knots they serve. I have to brush it off, way too strong. A roasted garlic instead (takes away that nasty bite), would be wonderful on this bread because the... More
