“Don't miss eating at this wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We have had dinner at Casa Bella at least 10 times. Always a wonderful experience. Excellent food and service. Comfortable seats. Nice atmosphere. Love, love, love this place!! Casual dress but we like to dress up a bit. Our favorite place without a doubt. We live in a small town with many Italian Restaurants. (Old Forge) But Casa Bella, in Scranton, is our favorite.

“Incredible food, superb service”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Visiting Scranton w/ brother and sis-in-law for a few days (attending a conference). Decided to venture outside the hotel for dinner the second night, and selected Casa Bella based on the online reviews.

Rather nondescript from the outside, but the parking lot was nearly full, always a good sign. We had not made reservations, but even though it was Friday night at the start of a 3-day weekend, we were seated immediately. Decor is spartan, but everything is clean and tidy. It's clear the investment here is in the food and staff.

This is Italian cooking at its best. Prices are quite reasonable compared to other areas of the country (I'm familiar with San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Chicago, and New York), and you get sizable portions.

The bread was good; the salads nothing too special, although the balsamic house dressing was quite good

I had one of the specials, a pork tenderloin stuffed with spinach, Gorgonzola, roasted red peppers, and served with an amazing Marsala sauce. Brother tried another special, grilled tilapia topped with crab and shrimp in a wonderful wine & cream sauce. Sis-in-law had the linguine w/ shrimp and clams in a light garlic sauce. Everything was absolutely delicious, especially the sauces.

We ended with 3 desserts: tiramisu, limoncello layer cake, and a mango sorbet ball lightly coated w/ white chocolate and served cut into quarters with whipped cream. All were VERY good, especially the mango sorbet dish.

Service throughout was exceptional: friendly, purposeful without rushing, no "hovering," great suggestions (wine). The place was packed, and we never had to wait for a refill on drinks.

One of the best meals I've ever had in an Italian restaurant. Definitely worth the visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I live in NJ/ NY and have traveled much of the country. The food is excellent, the service outstanding, the prices inexpensive. Have been here 2 x with family and some of the pickiest, nastiest, grumpiest people and everyone if they had beef, chicken fish or pasta, walked away satisfied, happy and I didn't have to hear any word of dissatisfaction. For that alone this is outstanding! Desserts are very good and the prices are very, very , very reasonable!

When we arived we got greated at the door and got a table right away. The servers were very polite and fast I didn't have to ask for more water they constantly came around to fill it. the food was so delicious I have been there with my wife at least 10 times and NEVER disapointed. I would recomend this restaurant to couples, family, business or solo.
