Rotelli's has great food, plain and simple. It's not great in that it ranks among the best meals I've ever had, however I crave there food quite often. I tend not to sway from my usual sausage and peppers Mac and cheese, not because I don't like the other food but because I just love that dish so much. Pizza... More

My wife and I went there recently and had a very bad experience. The service was terrible, the waitress could not speak clearly and was not helpful at all, often making us wait for long periods, like for our drinks and for our check. (And the place was not busy.) The entree was mediocre at best. I had a chicken... More

Just had a decent lunch at Rotelli while visiting my college daughter. One dish was the chicken parm sub. Huge portion and came with fries. Another plate was the blt wrap.... All gone! And I had the pizza. ( was not a fan as it was extra greasy) Sodas were always fresh and waitress attentive. Give it a try for... More

This restaurant is conveniently located downtown near the university. The meals we had at Rotelli Pizza, Pasta, Perfect were delicious and reasonably priced. The portions were generous, and included a nice salad and yummy garlic rolls. The chicken parm was very tasty and was made with Ricotta cheese as well as mozzarella. Pastas including sides are served with your choice... More

Ordered the luncheon special of soup or salad, slice of pizza and half a sandwich. Pick an Italian Combo which came with only one slice of cold cut. Could not believe it. Pizza was Ok and chowder was tasty. Grandson ordered the Mac-n-Cheese and it satisfied his large appetite and he was very satisfied with it. Service was adequate and... More

I can't order anything else at Rotelli's other than their buffalo chicken Mac-n-cheese. It's so good...I have no idea what else is good there as I think I'm addicted to the Mac-n-cheese. I do have it on good word they serve other tasty items also, lol.

Since it was Homecoming we expected to wait; however, once our order was placed, it took over an hour to get it. It was good, nothing great. Wouldn't go out of my way to go back.

We have been here a few times now when we visit Penn State. We were here early enough for the lunch menu. One of us had the spaghetti and meatballs which he thought was terrific. He also had a cup of chili which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had chicken ranch wrap which was very tasty and filling and a side... More

This is my second trip to Rotelli. My son loved their buffalo chicken pasta. The strawberry salad was good and spinach was fresh, as were the strawberries, I added grilled chicken, mistake. Too many seasonings on the chicken which over powered the salad. I had the lunch size eggplant Rotelli , large portion though there was too much mozzarella cheese... More
