Food was okay, but service was outstanding.

Rotelli is not a fancy restaurant and the menu, while having a few interesting choices, is pretty typical for a pizza/ pasta place. But we knew that going in and we were just looking for a nice lunch. And that's exactly what we got. Good food at a good price. What I was most impressed with was... read more

Rotelli's dining room is located upstairs with the bar separate and downstairs. (Although the bar does serve food, we have found it noisy.) The food, which is primarily Italian, very tasty. The servers are friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is pleasant with a view of downtown State College from the window booths. In warm weather patio dining over Calder Alley... More

I love Rotellis for hockey game viewing! We come here every hockey game. We were just in town and there was a Pens v. Flyers game so we headed over to Rotelli. We got a pasta bowl for $5 (huge bowl of pasta) and were able to select the pasta and sauce combination from a list (chose ziti with vodka... More

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.
