Family owned and operated bar restaurant has the best Italian food in Hazleton. One of only 2 places that serve Pizza with schamutz cheese.

This place has been in business since 1952 and it's only gotten better with age. Tony and his wife are the friendliest owners that one could ask for. The guys in the kitchen (Take Out) are the best. Pizza and antipasto are always perfect and the portions are "HUGE." Friday night specials are an excellent value.

This place has been around a long time and it's a time capsule. Always consistent. Even after a fire years ago, they just returned and didn't miss a beat. It's beyond food here, it's nostalgia. It's like Cheers. It's like immediate atmosphere as soon as you walk in. The salads are the best. The house dressing is perfection. It's a... More

With a unique patio just outside the bar area and the best pizza and hoagies around Rostas Café is a delight for any family looking for a GREAT place to eat. The specials are terrific (I had the Roast Beef) and recommend anything on the menu. It's reasonably priced with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. And the seating and service... More

Not being from the area, we did not know what to expect when we pulled in the driveway. Like others have stated, the looks of the building made us weary. However, there was a bunch of cars in the driveway, so we decided to go in. The waitstaff was nice and the food was delicious. You get large portions and... More

Driving into the parking lot, it looks like an old delapidated house converted to a restaurant and maybe that is what it is is, but do not let that deter you. Inside is an old bar and restaurant, not sure which is first and which is second, but you will find a very casual dining experience. Not fancy, not glamour,... More
