Went there for lunch on a Wednesday and for the price, I was expecting like a 6 to 8” hoagie. Well it was more like a 12” hoagie on fresh Italian bread….and it was simply delicious! Currently on Wednesday’s, they have buy any two hoagies for $10.50. I bought one for lunch and took another home for dinner. I’m sure... More

Every month a group of us get together for lunch somewhere in the Hazleton area. Recently, we went to Rostas. I haven't been there in years. I believe the last time was with my wife before the birth of our daughter (she's now 35 years old). Well, upon entering, I couldn't believe my eyes: The place hasn't changed! The food... More

Heading to a concert, a friend suggested Rosta's as a local choice for a pre concert dinner. What a find! We ate our delicious meal on a lovely patio and were treated to meatball and scamutz sandwiches and pizza that was different and just what we wanted. Our host was extremely hospitable and attentive and made a special request to... More

I had the meatball & scamutz grilled sandwich it was very large & had a lot of meqatballs in it. The meatballs were & not overdone with garlic as many other places do. The staff was very friendly & helpful too. Definitely worth a return visit.

Every time my daughter is in from Cali. I have to join her at this place. Cant get cozy atmosphere and food this good on the west coast. Only problem I have is deciding what to order. It is all good. Everybody should experience a grilled sausage and scamutz sandwich. But don't neglect the pizza and the pasta dishes.

For years I still have not found anyone that make pizza better than Rostas. My second choice is Senapes which is down the road. I get the sausage and mushroom with extra "scamutz " which is much better than mozzarella. They load on slices of sausage and load it with mushrooms so so they do not skimp on the toppings.... More

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.
