We were hungry and it was after the main lunch rush. Everyone in the family was stuff. I ate several meatballs and had the chicken parm. My kids liked their pasta. So filling.

Not sure what “toodwhore” was expecting. This is decent, small-town, family-style fare. While it’s not Wolfgang Puck, it’s also not White Castle.

Relatively certain that Fennici's will deliver (they are VERY accommodating!), but suggest you call to verify (717) 533-7159.
