We have eaten here at least 10 times a year and are never disappointed. Entire staff is wonderful and makes you feel like you are with family.

Nice place up in the mountains. Good Italian food. We went for lunch and I had the chicken parm. Of course I had to bring home half of it. The portions were large. My date had the veal parm hoagie which was also good. Please was clean and nice. Not very busy for lunch but it was a holiday and... More

Place was kind of dirty. Food was just ok what I had. What my husband had he couldn't even eat. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Visiting family in Lake Ariel, and They frequent this location. Chicken Marsala was just okay - I hate canned mushrooms. Penne with vodka sauce was pretty good. Everyone loved the chicken parm. Save room for dessert and get the tiramisu! Homemade and amazing!! Brownie with ice cream was pretty tasty, as well. But don't skip that tiramisu!! Waitress and other... More

We were lucky enough to find this place on " all you can eat pasta Monday", which was delicious. Only had one plate because the servings were so generous. We knew we were in luck when we saw the parking area full of cars. Prices were great, food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient. Great find.

This restaurant serves up authentic Italian food in an unpretentious atmosphere. With a cheerful wait staff, and a willingness to prepare dishes to order (sautéed fresh broccoli with oil and garlic, spaghetti aglia olio al dente with a touch of anchovy, no problem). Full bar service and an adequate wine list combined with moderate prices add up to an enjoyable... More

This is one of my favorites. Don't expect fancy. Wooden tables with paper placemats. The salad is no so good. Couple pieces of cut up lettuce 2 slices of cut up tomato and cucumber. The eggplant parm and the spaghetti with mushroom sauce is excellent - two things I order a lot.

We went here with a large group, over 20 people. The staff was very accommodating as well as attentive. The food here is decent for being in PA. Not NYC level quality but satisfactory for where it is. Will do for Italian if you're in a pinch.
