I have been to this restaurant 3 times and found the food to be good - better then average pizza for the area and the atmosphere is cool. There is plenty of seating and a long bar done in kind of industrial décor. My first visit we ate at the bar, early afternoon at a time when the restaurant was... More

It was a bit noisy but everything else was excellent. The menu is limited, so the offerings are well done. Pizzas and lasagna were good. House salad for two could have feed three and was tasty. Spirits selection was good and pricing was very reasonable. Was here from out of town for a wedding. Would eat here again if in... More

I took a day trip to Scranton to visit some family and stopped at Colarusso's. The food was better than I had expected because of the area. I ordered Patti's eggplant pizza and it was good. The eggplant was well cooked, and the tomato sauce and mozzarella were high quality. I will probably come back when I come back to... More

Everybody raved about the pizza at Colarusso's, so I was excited to try it. It was quite underwhelming. The crust was the only good part, the sauce was bland and subpar, and the toppings were average. The only thing that saved the night was the awesome service. The waitress was wonderful and the food came quickly. I will not go... More

Long and short - this is a restaurant in a strip mall. The food is better than what you would expect, the ambiance is exactly what you would expect. Pizza is good. The baked "Italian" wings are very good. Meatballs are good. Mac and cheese is very good. A better draft beer selection could earn another star, as could more... More

I was out for a solo meal while waiting for my son to finish play practice. I had soup here a few months ago, but didn't really pay much attention to the menu. So anyway, I got hungry for stuffed white pizza (the Old Forge style, for the locals). I always liked Colarusso's version. Maybe this is a different family,... More

The pizza is great, the subs are terrific. We usually come here on Sundays during the winter. They offer an unusually tasty gluten free menu. The chicken parm dinner is one example. Michael is always friendly and Alisha is very attentive.

We decided to check out this restaurant last night around 6PM. The restaurant was about half full, so were seated immediately. My wife & I wanted soup & salad; we were not hungry enough to order pizza too. Maybe we will next time. We ordered an Italian Chef Salad for $10.95. I think it might have been the best salad... More

A Coal Fired Oven! What a treasure to have! I expected some of the best pizza EVER! I was let down. Pizza Margherita is what I ordered. It was...bad. I mean the crust was as magnificent as I had hoped but the cheese was bland and there were no crushed tomatoes just whole slices of tomato. Oh, and NO Basil.... More
