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!

We come to town for wrestling tournaments several times a year and we always eat here and bring friends. Every time we have brought new people that are impressed with the food, the wine, and the service. From then pizza to the antipasta to the veal and other authentic Italian dishes, you will not leave hungry or disappointed. Only complaint... More

I love it when a great restaurant is in a strip mall. Quick, friendly and attentive service, pleasant atmosphere, delicious food (had the broccoli alfredo and a salad with an incredible homemade Italian dressing; bread was terrific) and generous portions. Will be back to try something else next time we're in town!

The food is spectacular and reasonably priced. Service was very good. Well located near many hotels on Route 22. Had a small Stromboli...enough for two meals.
