Used to eat here every time I was in the Allentown area, going back at least 15 years. The restaurant has changed over that time from a family quick grab a slice of pizza, Or sit down for a nice meal, into a fancier looking place but I found the food and service Lacking, waiter seemed distracted, although it wasn't...

We really enjoyed the many options available on their menu! We were in the mood for pasta/Italian so we ordered accordingly. They will basically make anything that's on the menu just the way you want it...more garlic, etc. Some drink specials and dish specials at certain times/dates. The bread is delicious!! I would highly recommend this restaurant and the prices... More

This was only our second time eating here, we are not from the area and our son goes to school close by. This restaurant is up the road from the hotel we always stay at, and since our first experience was really good, we tried it again. We needed a place where we could eat on Ash Wednesday for fish...

Didn't expect to find as good an Italian restaurant in this area, in a strip mall. Calamari with hot peppers was excellent. Two of us had lunch portions and they were large. Veal and chicken parmigianas were very good as was the pasta giardino. Service was very good. Owners from Brooklyn. Prices very reasonable.

We went here for dinner because it was highly recommended by this website. Well I was disappointed by the service and the meal. First the waiter was new and couldn't recommend anything but chicken alfredo, I thought wow that's the best you can do! Then I ordered the "Italian Feast" which comes with lots of food. We ordered a appetizer... More

Taste of Italy has always been one of my favorite restaurants, but today was a different experience. The hostess forgot to call my name to seat my husband and me after we waited 25-30 minutes for a 15 minute wait time. She completely forgot about us and it wasn't overly busy. My chicken broccoli alfredo meal wasn't good. My chicken... More

Thought it was just another pizza bar and grille but once inside realized it was full service for menu. Been there twice now this past month and dinner with wife. All 4 meals were tasty ... Well prepared ... Plenty of room and found the service pretty good... Overall a good reasonable price for a family ding experience

This was a convenient location to meet friends. Enjoyed the tradition pizza with black olives and mushrooms. Was disappointed the mushrooms were canned, not fresh.
