“Excellent food - service a little slow”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Lasagna was delicious. Pomodora on angel hair pasta was great. Homemade bread was top knotch. Server wasnt great with getting us refills on drinks. And when asked he brought diet instead of regular. When I asked him to take it back, he was annoyed. Salad was good but wish there were croutons on it. Atmosphere cozy and romantic. We drove way out of our way to come to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. It was worth coming

“Huge Portions of Great Food ... Attentive Service!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Dinner at Bellissimo is a real treat! Starting with the fabulous and not-to-be-missed garlic mini rolls, to the fresh pastas and seafoods, to the excellent wine selection, and the very appealing dessert tray (we never seem to have room for dessert) there is little not to like about this Allentown fixture. Our recent visit was excellent. The hostess greeted and seated us promptly and we had wine in hand practically before we picked up a menu. The food was expertly prepared and quite delicious. We both took home enough leftovers for another meal. Alas, we took no garlic rolls! We enjoyed a carafe of the house Chianti which was a perfect complement to our meal. We nearly always visit this fine restaurant when in Allentown and encourage others to do the same!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There is almost nothing bad I can say about this place. The food is amazing! I had an angel hair vodka sauce with shirmp and my wife had chicken and broccoli alfredo. The portions are enough to feed an army and it's just delicious! It's a very cute, quaint little place with very few tables.

“Great small restaurant”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Visiting my son at college, we took him out with a few friends. I had the lobster ravioli. It was excellent. The gnocchi was great too. Food is terrific and portions are large. Service is exceptional. Price is very reasonable. I highly recommend this place. It is a bit small and fills up fast so make a reservation.

Reviewed December 26, 2012

I dine here occasionally with coworkers and have never left hungry. Their pasta dishes are delicious and fill the entire plate.
