We love coming to celticfest in September and sitting on the curb and eating Mama Nina's Calamari during the parade. Great portions and very well done. This year (2014) we ordered crab cakes. What a treat. 2 Large cakes swimming in a red cream sauce with some shrimp and scallops hidden underneath. Deliciousness! FYI a BYOB restaurant.

The food here is typical Italian, but the portions are very large. The food wasn't the best I have ever had, but it was above average and the portions were huge. I didn't even eat 1/4 of my meal before I had to ask for a box. I really appreciate that they give a complimentary glass of wine with dinner... More

The calamari in balsamic reduction is fantastic. It is an appetizer with a large generous portion. All portion sizes are large. They are BYOB but offer a complementary glass of wine with purchase of entree. Must try this Italian restaurant. Very very good.

We heard so much about is place and a couple of friends decided to go there. We had a reservation and yet we had to wait more then half an hour. Not even an apology or a complimentary dessert or beverage for not honoring our reservation time. Okay things happen, so we wait and have a drink in the very... More

My family and I were there recently on a very busy night. The owner was incredibly accommodating and sat us in a timely manner. The food was absolutely incredible and the service was phenomenal. The only negative thing we could say has to do with a very rude and inconsiderate group near our table who spitefully overstayed their welcome and... More

Food was good but the service was atrocious. The owner stared at us, pointed at us while addressing the server that he needed our table to seat another party. They rushed us out and I will never go back. This man is not a restauranteur. He should sell before he ruins the business

We went here to pick up dessert. The large canoli was just ok. The tiramisu was good. It had good flavor

Nice Italian restaurant in downtown Bethlehem. Bread is great (a plus), in addition to very good Italian fare. Second trip there, and would go back when in Bethlehem. Limited outdoor street seating.

A wonderful location in downtown Bethlehem. The server was well informed and helpful. Portions were plentiful. A garlic lovers dream.

I would not have expected this to be an italian restaurant if all I had to go on was the interaction with the wait staff and the owner. Usually your welcomed and cared for while dining at places like this. That claim to be italian (which I found out the owner is, not!) The owner was impolite (if not rude)... More
