Stopped for a quick dinner before a show at the Kirby Center. Split a pizza for the table and I had a cheesesteak which was very good.

We were looking for a quick meal on the square before a show. This was a poor choice. The margarita pizza was absolutely horrible. Very greasy tasted like microwave heated up with NO basil. The other orders were all bad also.

We arrived in Wilkes Barre at 5:15 and needed to get supper into our 2 three year olds- if we had more time to consider options, we probably would have skipped this place. The food was good, the service was adequate, but nothing exceptional to make me desire to return to this restaurant.

We were headed to Thai Thai but they were closed today. I said to my daughter what about the restaurant on the corner? She said let's try and we were very glad we did. She had a fancy burger and I had a flatbread. Both were excellent.

Perfect spot to grab dinner before a show at F. M. Kirby theatre. My husband and I did just that before Joe Walsh and our waiter Bobby C. was working hard for the concert crowd. Food and drinks were good, priced right and service was outstanding!

The food at Rodano's is pretty good and is priced at similar value as all other similar restaurants. There is plenty of options on the menu from specialty hoagies and sandwiches to entrees to strombolis and more. Will always come back to Rodano's when I visit the Wilkes-Barre area.

Fabulous meal served by an exceptional young man! We arrived late on Friday night and found that they only take dinner orders until 10:00 We quickly viewed the menu (which has an great selection) and ordered our meal. What we got was one of the best meals we had on our entire week long trip! We will be back!!

Stopped in recently for some wings and salads. The food and service were both good. Nice location on the Public Square with an outside patio.

Rodano's is a good spot for local college students. Convenient walking distance from both King's College and Wilkes University. Standard bar food and specials events geared for showing student IDs.
