Good place for a nice dinner and drink

The Tilapia and asparagus was awesome, and the staff were very sweet! Everyone had a great time and if you just want to watch a game (or election results) it is good for that as well.

My wife and I were on our trike and were joined on this visit with another couple traveling on their motorcycle. Unfortunately, on the Saturday night we visited Morello's, the motorcycle parking in front of the restaurant was completely blocked by pickup truck and trailer (the band that was playing on the patio never bothered to move their vehicle after...

There is a variety of dinner options on the menu, so there is something for everyone. They offer a variety of pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, along with other meal options. One of my families first dinner choices when dining in Harrisburg.

The only good things about this place were kids eat free on Sunday and the waitress was nice. The food was not very good at all and the restaurant was old, run down and kinda dirty. We only stopped here because we had planned on trying Mackie's but it was not open. We won't go back!

The food is consistently good, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. Our town is fortunate to have a great restaurant providing good food, community gatherings, and a social meeting place.

Morello's is great for any functions, including weddings, plays, birthdays and so on. The staff are friendly and the locals will have a chat. Great place to go for a delicious meal or to take in some music.

I have been here twice while visiting family and both were very disappointing. I swore I'd never go back after the first, but decided to give it one last shot. The second time was just as bad as the first. Slow service doesn't begin to describe our experience. It took over an hour and a half to get our food.... More

I was served my salad that of only green peppers. No appetizer. Meal comes out. No appetizer. My husband questioned the appetizer and it was oops..I can... More
