Mom Chaffe's Cellarette in reading, pa is a no-frills Italian restaurant and a favorite spot for local food lovers since 1936. We have been serving our patrons quality Italian food that’s authentic in every way. Dishes like pasta, penne, lasagna, and pizza are prepared from scratch using locally sourced ingredients that make all the difference in taste.

Small, Italian cellarette with warm and intimate atmosphere and exceptional service. The Lobster Ravioli was delicious, and I highly recommend the Bruchetta as an appetizer. It was the best I have ever had! Come prepared to spend a lot of money though. If money is...More
