Description: We are located in a beautifully renovated train station that served the Lehigh Valley Railroad since being built in 1904.

I don't care for wings but my friends do and they stated they were excellent. The pizza was chewy crust, not something I care for either but the toppings were good. The hamburger was very good and big, a lot of meat. And the fries were thin, not too greasy, so I definitely liked those. Service was pretty good, we... More

I had a California burger (spicy but delicious), hubbie had the cioppino (yum), daughter had a pasta alfredo dish (very heavy), and my other had a steak (flavorful rub on it that she did not like v much). My in laws had a burger... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. It's in an old train station and the atmosphere was pleasant. The waitress was very friendly and the food good. The beer was nice and cold. Will go here again.

We were in town overnight and found this restaurant from Trip Advisor. Wow, the food here was fantastic! Our family (consisting of children 9-15yrs & adults) ordered appetizers, burgers, pasta entrees, pizza & dessert! Everyone loved every bite! Wish this place were closer to home!

True attention to detail with every pizza. We enjoy the fresh ingredients and that the pizza is served HOT. The interior is also so much nicer than it use to be. If you are a local then you already know about this place, but if you like to travel this is a must when you are around the Lockwood area.... More

Loved the menu! Had a range of new foods that I haven't tried before. I am always up for trying new food.

No longer Italian food as the name suggests but still delicious. Had an excellent juicy burger on artisan ciabatta bread with homemade potatoe chips, another member of our party had a very fresh, large tossed salad with grilled chicken. Their fries were excellent also. Would definitely return for a meal.

The atmosphere is nice since it's an old train station. The food is typical Italian food that tasted good and wasn't over priced. The bar area is a bit boring and could use some atmosphere. It looks like they have a great beer selection but they don't have that much of a variety. They did put a deck out back... More

It looked good on the Internet and the staff at Hampton Inn recommended it. If you love Italian food in a casual atmosphere, you must check it out. I had a seafood medley over linguine. The sauce was homemade, the seafood was calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels, all cooked to perfection. I know because the calamari was tender and not over-cooked.... More

Stopped in late one evening with my gf to grab a bite to eat. We spilt an app. My gf had the ahi tuna and I had the 12oz sirloin. There was a great atmosphere, drinks were cold, food was average but our server John was absolutely great very courteous and knowledgeable. Will definitely stop back soon
