Whenever we travel to New York, we always stop at Allentown in this area because they have good motels and this restaurant. It has been remodeled since we were last here but the food is still good. I had the veal Marsala. It was pretty good. My wife ordered Lasagna and it was also pretty good. The service was also... More

This is one of our favorite spots for Italian food. The Chicken Francaise and Chicken Marsala are my personal favorites, but anything you order is delicious and a large portion. The garlic rolls are awesome too. Great place with great atmosphere.

I have dined at the Taste of Italy a couple of times while staying in Allentown for business. (But if the lady at the front desk of my hotel hadn't recommended it, I would have just passed it by. It's stuck in the middle of a strip mall.) They have an extensive Italian menu, at reasonable prices. We had bacon... More

Good food at reasonable prices. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The chicken dishes are very good and so is the pizza.

Plenty of food, all good. Service great. We had 2 main dishes and received a free appetizer, which was enough for a meal. The salads were fresh and great, and...the bread-too good. The shrimp and pasta dishes were prepared perfectly. No room for dessert.

We have eaten here as a couple and also with larger groups of adults and children. Their pizza is a favorite. We also have enjoyed the chicken parmesan and love the fresh baked bread with olive oil and herbs for dipping and large portions of crispy house salad with crunchy vegetables. We recently had them cater a function with delicious... More

I had the grilled salmon with roasted potatoes and broccoli. Broccoli was sautéed in garlic which is the way I like it. Salmon was perfectly cooked. The bread and olive oil was a welcome appetizer. I would return if I was in the area again. I loved the atmosphere and decor.

If you are in Allentown and love Italian food go here. Rave reviews on Trip Advisor brought us here. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and our adorable, bubbly server, Amber. It was a light dinner of soup, calamari and a Scicilan antipasto. Everything was so damn good. Large portions were served. We could not finish the antipasto so... More

Fantastic bread. Very generous portions. Everything was great from linguini to calzone to pizza to cheesesteak. Very nice atmosphere considering it is located in a strip mall. Definitely worth a visit!
