Ordered takeout a few weeks ago. Normally decent food but chicken was like rubber - really bad. I took it back and pointed out the issue. Counter person said she would make a note for credit on next order. Fast forward 2 weeks later I...placed another order via phone and told contact I had a credit there. When I arrived counter person said credit was for a rice ball not a full dinner, was abrasive and said only owner could change policy and that credit could only be for another rice ball. Never mentioned credit requirements during order call and when I asked for owner’s info she wouldn’t give me any info or when owner would be present. Dinner was almost $20 and my wife couldn’t eat it. Very poor customer service!More

Ordered a medium pizza with 2 toppings only on half and it came to a total of 18.01. greeted with a who gives a $*@* attitude only to find later my card was charged a dollar more, 19.01. If you're up for throwing money away...on par level pizza knock yourself out!More

I meet my sister at Penn pizza, this was her first time eating here. I ordered the seafood salad with dressing on the side, she ordered the cheesesteak deluxe salad, after we ate she grabbed a menu and said she would comeback again. I highly...recommend this place for lunch or dinner, we at the hospital order often and love it!! I had to order two more salads to take home. Plus great pizza and catered food. I hope this was helpful 👍🏻More

Return visit. I usually come here if I visit the hospital. I ordered the grilled chicken antipasti salad. A lot of chicken and ham cheese and salami, olives, artichokes, tomatoes and plenty of leafy greens. Came out very quickly. I was eating alone so no...other dishes tried. I’d go back!More

As a long time customer I am moving on to another pizza place. In the last 3 weeks I have ordered the large Stromboli with added sausage and all 3 times there was no sausage. I also want to say that the stromboli was filled...with raw onion, pepper and mushroom. Very, very little meat. I didn't want a vegi boli! I called and complained after the 3rd time today and they told me to bring it back and they would remake it. Well I'm not waiting another hour to eat dinner. When I told them what happened the manager just said the cook said their was absolutely sausage in it. Well I beg to differ! Also the french fries I ordered were so soggy we were unable to eat them. They looked like they were half fried and then thrown into a aluminum pan. Gross! So I left them know they would be losing a customer and they seemed fine with that. I don't know what happened here, new cook or trying to save money, but the food used to be so good now they are going in the toilet like a lot the pizza places in the valley. It will catch up to them sooner or later. Good luck. If anyone knows a good reputable pizza place that cares about their customers please post to me. Adios Penn Pizza.More

We went there with friends who had previously been there. Both wives ordered the seafood salad. The third ordered clams with pasta in white sauce. I ordered a small steak Stromboli. Two orders came out together(the clams with pasta and the Stromboli) followed shortly by...the first seafood salad. The second salad was at least 10 minutes latter. Apparently only one guy makes that item--and he only has one pan! The good news is that the seafood salad was excellent with all the different sea foods done perfectly. My Stromboli was smaller than expected and nothing to rave about---it was just okay. I'm not sure of the pasta and clams.More

Horrible experience. Have you ever noticed the cooks do not wear hats or gloves and to day I asked the pizza maker if he wouldn't scratch his head over the food. He just stared at me and I told him it was a health violation,...I mentioned something to the owner that while she doesn't require hats or gloves of food handlers could he not scratch his head over the food, She told me I was miserable and that I should come back - fine by me. She also told me I shouldn't park in the handicap spot - I have the appropriate tag, have had knee surgery and have other health issues which is why I have a handicap tag, Since when is she the parking lot monitor. Maybe she should tell her chef to move his Mercedes and park in a legal spot. Some of their food is mediocre at best, but it is all overpriced. They are lucky they have a captive audience or they would be out of business. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!More

I ordered a German pie which was great and an order of the chicken fingers and fries. To my surprise there were 3 small chicken fingers and a small amount of fries. For $8.00 I expected more. 'm not complaining because that is the price...at most restaurants, but the amount was just ridiculous. I will now search for another Italian place to get my food because I just don't like being ripped off.More

Working near Lehigh Valley Hospital, this is a very popular place for employees. They have amazing pizza! Many people even bring it home for dinner for their family. Definitely one of the best in the Lehigh Valley!

The woman with long b on register was incompetent! I asked about allergy safety. She was totally clueless. She asked if walnuts go into the pizza oven...will it burn off the allergy. UNREAL! Are you serious. She should be fired! She also stated that walnuts...are...they a peanut? I can not make this up. This is a deadly serious allergy if ingested. NEVER EAT HERE!More

This place has great pizza but also a lot more. The daily specials are always fantastic. They have the best balsamic dressing around.

My wife and I ordered a chicken parmigiana and shrimp park. The shrimp parm was ordered with sauce on the side and the chicken parm with sauce. The waiter took the order and another employee confirm the sauce selection but the order was not accurate,...as the shrimp parm had sauce and the chicken did not. The waiter dropped the meals and scurried away without addressing the issue. Chicken parm tasted ok but was rubbery. Would rate our first experience as average for food and service. The waiter seemed distracted and cooks were singing songs.More

We were hungry, it was late, we needed it to be delivered. It happened to be the closest pizza place that would deliver so we tried it out and while the cheese pizza is pretty much like every cheese pizza, their meat-lovers was the best...meat pizza I've ever had. The perfect mix of meats and an awesome crust.More
