Great food!

You can find just about anything here! Seafood, steaks, comfort food, breakfast, etc., etc., etc. Had great service and great food. Our only complaint was the portion size was over the top. We could have easily split a single entree between the two of us.

Stopped here on a whim- will be back! Wide array of food choices. We had corned beef Ruben with potato salad and French dip. All were good. Quick service, friendly staff. Open 24 hours

My wife and I have been to Minella's many times and our most recent visit was superb as usual. What is amazing is that there is a very extensive menu but everything we've ever ordered seems custom-made just for us. The other night I ordered the prime rib -- it was huge and delicious. What is also remarkable was that... More

Good quality diner type food with wide range on the menu. Large facility so can accommodate lots of people but 6-8 would be max group seating probably. Reasonable prices too. (N.B. Must be part of Lancaster Diner Inc as credit charges show up under that name). Right along Lancaster Pike (Rt 30) in Paoli/Wayne/Bryn Mawr area.

My wife and I were here this afternoon. We were at a few open houses earlier during the day and by the time we got here, it was around 3:30 and we were super-hungry. Given the time of the day, the place was rather empty and we were seated promptly at a comfortable booth by the window. The menu, if... More

The breakfast here was great. I highly recommend the omelets! The service was fast, good, and they were very accommodating with our little one. We went two days in a row, we liked it so much. It is a little pricier than some other diners in the area, but not by much- and the food was worth it. It's a... More

Enjoyed breakfast here. Portion was large, tasty ingredients and great food. Service a bit cranky but that is part of the fun.

I have been going here for decades. Under the current owner, this is an efficiently run restaurant. When colleges and high schools are in session, this place is packed with families, sports teams, students. Line is out the door but they keep it moving for breakfast and lunch. Food if served quickly and tastes fine. Bakery is open for take... More

If you enjoy diners, you have to eat here. Minella's, like most diners, has an extensive menu and serves very generous portions. The food is great. We enjoyed matzo ball soup, lasagna, chicken, and sides of veggies. What's unique here is the bread. I especially liked the cheese bread. It was soft, moist and flavorful. We were joined by another... More
