I have been visiting the Alvaro family since they opened. I don't order eggplant in restaurants because it is usually fried, greasy or covered with tomato sauce. One day I asked Salvatore for the eggplant rollatini recipe and he said...first I start with homemade breadcrumbs. So I tried it and the eggplant dishes are exceptional. I love their variety of pastas and sauces, you can't go wrong with the sausage and peppers or the Italian panini sandwich. The pizza is made with , quality ingredients and is so fresh. The chicken parmesan is very good and I can go on and on...... I love the authentic Italian cookies and the gelato.
They serve dinners on Friday and Saturday and reservations are a must. This is a BYOB, which during my recent visit truly added to the noisy atmosphere. So hey, no one wants to hear your dinner conversation - believe me - keep it down so others can enjoy their dinner too. This would not keep me away because this restaurant reminds me of home.
We are so fortunate to have the Alvaros in Harrisburg. Buon Appetito
