There is a variety of dinner options on the menu, so there is something for everyone. They offer a variety of pizzas, sandwiches, pastas, along with other meal options. One of my families first dinner choices when dining in Harrisburg.

The only good things about this place were kids eat free on Sunday and the waitress was nice. The food was not very good at all and the restaurant was old, run down and kinda dirty. We only stopped here because we had planned on trying Mackie's but it was not open. We won't go back!

The food is consistently good, the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. Our town is fortunate to have a great restaurant providing good food, community gatherings, and a social meeting place.

Morello's is great for any functions, including weddings, plays, birthdays and so on. The staff are friendly and the locals will have a chat. Great place to go for a delicious meal or to take in some music.

I have been here twice while visiting family and both were very disappointing. I swore I'd never go back after the first, but decided to give it one last shot. The second time was just as bad as the first. Slow service doesn't begin to describe our experience. It took over an hour and a half to get our food.... More

We were in the area on vacation and went to this restaurant based upon the recommendation of our cabin owner. There were 6 of us for dinner. We had 2 kids meals, and four regular meals...
