My fiancee and I decided to go here because we had heard such wonderful things about the restaurant. There are numerous components to this restaurant to talk about:
1. The food - the food was pretty good. The garlic bread is DELICIOUS. I could have eaten these and only these and been incredibly happy. The rest of the meal was fine.
2. The atmosphere - it's very jam-packed. So, if you have any sort of people-phobia, then this is not the place to go. We ended up having to wait quite a while before we were served.
3. The service - not too bad. The problem was that one of the servers spilled the garlic bread on my fiancees shirt (accidentally) and nothing was done about this. He had a massive oil stain on his shirt and had to throw it out.
4. The wine - we did get free wine! So it was a trip that was worth it.
Overall, it was decent.

Wow........ I just got done with my leftovers (and you will have leftovers) and was compelled to write this review. Small cozy place with friendly staff. The food was off the hook. Parking can be tough but there is a parking garage one block away. You really need to give this place a shot and it BYOB.

We heard about this Italian restaurant from a news channel mentioning BEST ITALIAN .... and decided to stop by after the casinos and were pleasantly surprised with the place. The owner greeted us and the waitress was attentive; she placed some garlic/oil rolls which were like eating air; hot and light. We ordered the chicken parmigiana with choice of pasta for $8.95. The big pasta bowl was filled with penne and a slice of breaded chicken breast that covered the length of the dish ~ 9". What a treat; the SAUCE was tasty but a tad salty which could be perfectly fine for others as I hate SALT but all in all a GREAT dining experience in downtown Bethlehem! Roberto was very busy bussing tables, helping patrons, etc Great staff & menu!
