Have been going here since they opened, I think I was 13! I was brought up on their sauce. And then we moved to Harrisburg, but, when we would go up to the Fingerlakes, we always stopped on the way home...with our GALLON container to get the sauce and order 8 or so meatballs. I would put it in zip... More

They closed few days ago. Used to be good place where locals came and brought family but over years it turned into a bad place with bad food. Everybody knew that this they won't last long.

I ate here when I first came to Williamsport and found the food OK. I then returned a couple of months later with some family from out of state. Ordered spaghetti again and it smelled and tasted like rotten fish. The lazagna had no cheese on it (They said it is made that way). the salad was old lettuce and... More

I grew up with this place, and it hasn't changed a bit. Same food, same ambience, same charm. You can almost see the mob still meeting in the back room back in the 1950s while enjoying your meal. Family recipes just like your grandmothers. Family owned and operated. This place may not be for everybody, but if you dig authenticity,... More

I was a little hesitant to even go in because of how run down the outside is. The inside matches the outside sadly. Smells stale, looks stale, I was hoping the food would make up for appearances; not so much. Took 3 tries to get a glass of wine, they were out of the first two whites I ordered. The... More

The shop itself is a bit outdated and the atmosphere is quite casual, but this family owned restaurant sure knows it's food. Nothing super fancy, just traditional down home Italian cooking. The food is great, this just got rated average for the atmosphere.

Heard about the great food here for many years. Decided to try it for lunch. This is a very gloomy old place that looks like it was last remodeled in 1960. The lunch special was lasagna and it was good, not great. They really need to clean this place up.

Large portions. That probably accounts for prices that seem a bit high for the area. Not necessarily bad, but not great either. On a recent visit I had spaghetti and Italian sausage. A huge plate of average tasting spaghetti, and two decent sized pieces of very well prepared but average tasting sausage for $14. Not really worth the price. A... More

"The Triangle" used to one of many family owned Italian restaurants in Williamsport. Unfortunately most all have closed as the older generation died off and no one wanted to put in the hard work and time of running a restaurant. Thankfully The Triangle is still here for all to enjoy. I remember going here for years with my father. Sadly... More
