We stop in here once a month. We have the pizza at least every other stop. Gianna has waited on us a couple of times. She is the best always pleasant and has the answers. Dave and Mike, owner/manager, are always accommodating. So if you're walking around downtown it is a good place to stop for lunch or dinner. Today... More

Food is consistently good; service is prompt and menu is reasonably priced. The "World Famous Lunch" is always a good choice.

We were here over THON weekend. We ordered a cheese pizza with extra cheese and fresh tomatoes. It was very good, even as leftovers! Acceptable variety of beer and wine. Attentive wait staff. Reasonably busy ay about 7:30 PM on a Saturday, but no line to get in. We will eat here again.

Food very ordinary - nothing special. Would prefer quality over quantity. Perhaps understaffed. Service slow.

We were here for our granddaughters graduation and since there were over 20 of us this place was able to handle us. We were set up downstairs and the service was pretty good considering we were such a large group. The food was ok. I wouldn't say it was awful or great, but satisfying and decent portions. They were helpful... More

We ate here on a non-football weekend, early in the evening, and they were not busy at all. By the time we left, things were picking up a bit. We had mozzarella sticks for an app as one of our party was a kid. Typical fried cheese but pretty good. Accompanied by a nice marinara sauce. Salads were good, nothing... More

While Rotelli has an "okay" atmosphere, the service is almost guaranteed to suck. I have eaten here on several occasions and ordered delivery. NEVER ORDER DELIVERY. After waiting over an hour and 20 minutes for two pasta dishes and an appetizer and finally calling in to check the status of my order only to be told that "it's still cooking."... More

Given that it was a football Saturday night, we expected -- and found -- crowds everywhere and it was the same at Rotelli's yet we were able to be seated within minutes. The hostess initially said we could be seated outside immediately yet given that it was chilly, it was a non-option. This was our first visit and found the... More

I'm in town for the ABA conference and was looking for italian within walking distance of my hotel. I loved the charming locale and the other guests were great. Unfortunately, the rest of my experience was lackluster at best. I ordered the gorgonzola salad, which was pretty good and HUGE. I also ordered manicotti and an advertised seasonal beer. After...

Rotelli is another one of my favorite places to eat in state college. Great place if you want really good food for not a hefty price. It is a fun place to eat and is conveniently located in the downtown area. I would recommend coming here!
