Excellent Italian food. Reasonably priced. My wife ordered arribbiata pasta and it was excellent. I ordered small Caesar salad and gave it high marks! That was followed by baked Haddock; it too was well prepared and delicious. Finally, triple layer chocolate cake to finish the evening. Nice ambience with interesting bar area and personable wait staff. Highly recommended!

Don't let the neighborhood fool you, this place is a hidden gem. Haven't been here in ages and received a gift certificate and decided to give it a try.

This was our third visit this month. Today I had the Crab Cake Sandwich with Coleslaw and Tomato Soup. The sandwich was huge and so good! I even brought half of my meal home for dinner. I can't say enough good about The Phoenix. It will not disappoint!

Est area chef hands down . Food and preparation top notch. Specials always have items with interesting spin on. Prime rib best in area. Seafood selections outstanding. Even Italian choices great. Only suggestion would be some round tables for groups larger than 4!

Two for dinner. Drinks took very long to get - 40 minutes for a bloody Mary....calamari appetizer very tasty and tender. Fish done very nicely, the chips a bit over done. Stuffed hot peppers were great,

We heard good things about The Phoenix and thought we'd give it a try last night. Had a wonderful meal and great overall experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions generous. The desserts looked great, but we couldn't eat another bite after finishing our entrees. Soooooo good!!! Also enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere---bright and clean, acoustic tunes playing over... More

My husband and I had dinner at the Phoenix to celebrate our anniversary. I would recommend making reservations especially on the weekends . Our waitress Megan was very pleasant and attentive. The food was very good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. We will plan to go back in the near future.

We are repeat diners and have always been treated well with excellent food and service. We will return when in the Altoona area visiting our daughter and son in law.
