“Great Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went for drinks and pizza. Ate at bar, and enjoyed the friendly staff. Pizza was really good, especially for the area. My friends had other dishes, which were also well prepared.

“Great Italian Choice in Lehigh Valley with Wood-fire Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We must go to an Italian Restaurant every 2-3 days, so we are quite experienced with the multitude of options available in the Lehigh Valley. Somehow we managed to discover Stefano's only recently and we are sure glad we did!

The staff are extremely friendly, prompt and attentive. The woodfire pizza is to die for and the 100% homemade gelato is amazing.

Eventhough its a 20 minute drive for us, we try to make it at least once a week!

A few notes...
- Family friendly - even with a crying 2 year old :)
- The gelato choices change often, you should try them all!
- The margherita pizza is spectacular
- All of the main dishes we had were wonderful, but the veggies that are included are a bit over-cooked
- You can usually get in with no problem around 5-5:30, but plan on making reservations afterwards or on weekends. It is a large restaurant and gets busy. (A great sign!)

Highly recommended.

“One of my favorite restaurants in the Valley!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I love this place! Amazing pasta, delicious gelato...all at an affordable price. The service is always great and the staff is very well informed on each dish and dessert that is offered. This is one of my favorite places to indulge and I can't say enough good things about it. See for yourself, I promise you will not be disappointed!

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We enjoy having lunch here quite often. The soups are delicious and are homemade. Both of us enjoy the sandwiches offered. My favorite is the salami & pepperoni panini. We've always had good friendly service. The prices are reasonable, making it a great place for lunch. They also have rooms that can accomodate groups.

“Good Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Good menu... meaning it is not over-done and everything is good. You will find your standard italian fare on the menu, however the quality of the finished product is certainly above the norm. Good wine list to go along with your meal. Service was a bit slow a few times, but we've never been pressed for time. It is nice to go somewhere where they don't rush you in and out os quickly. This place will appeal to those who like good americanized italian. It's not so authentic that the food doesn't taste right for those of us who were not imported from Italy... or Brooklyn. Go! You won't be disappointed.
