went with my family for a late dinner. They sat us right away. Loved the Old Forge pizza. The pizza took a while however it was worth it. One of my boys had the meatball sub and it was really good. My wife and kids enjoyed the calimari. Loved watching the bocce out front. Will probably go again when in... More

We have gone there several times. The food is average. The pizza is good. Not too impressed but I am a bit of a food snob! Always packed. Others love it.

Have been going there since I was dating my husband....45 years!!! Always pleasant service, great food at a reasonable price! Enjoy!! I was also always in charge of large parties at work and for family occasions. We were never disappointed at Arcaro's. Their banquet service was professional, fast and the food was fabulous!!

Can't believe it coming here 40 plus years mediocre salad from a bag and undercooked chewy ravioli. Last Weds night place was mobbed at dinner time. We will return as I don't believe it could happen twice.

Another location my family loves to eat at when I am in town. Always great service and wonderful food. Their Sicilian style pizza is one of the best in the "Pizza Capital of the World." Highly recommend and they can accommodate large parties.

It's easy to know why they've been in business since 1962 after one bite. This pizza was amazing. Nice thick, chewy crust. Delicious sweet red sauce. Lots of cheese. I loved the flavor of the pepperoni, but I think it may have been a little greasy for my husband. The tray of 12 pieces was a bit much for the... More

Came here after striking out at 2 other places and glad I did. Crowd at the bocce courts should have clued me that this was a local favorite. Inside I sat at the bar. Jack the bartender was gracious and locals gave me suggestions for dinner - although they pretty much recommended the entire menu. Ordered the famous double crusted... More

Of course it's hard to pick an actual "favorite" Old Forge restaurant, but Arcaro & Genell's is a definite contender. It's my husband's happy place. Awesome Old Forge pizza. I love the tray of white. The homemade pasta is to die for. Great family pasta atmosphere.

Eight of us agreed to meet for dinner. We ordered the pepper shooters which were excellent plus three types of pizza. The double crust white pizza and the thin crust regular pizza were outstanding. The service was superior. It is apparent that all the waitresses work as a team since three different waitress served our table. If you want a... More
