My family and I were recently in Scranton and we were seeking out a neighborhood Italian restaurant. What we found was a true gem of a place at the corner of Railroad Avenue and Luzerne Street. From the minute we walked in, we felt right at home. We were greeted at the door by Paul Libassi, who owns this restaurant... More

I have eaten at this restaurant twice and both times were disappointing and expensive. The first time was an entree at a sit-down dining experience and most recently I ordered a pizza to take home to my family. The cost of a large pie was just under $16. When I got it home, I discovered that it wasn't even done.... More

If you want a real northeastern Italian restaurant, one that people walk to, this the kind of place you want to find. Everything is made fresh, but nothing is fancied up for tourists. We were spotted as out-of-towners before our southern accents exposed us. White cotton table cloths? Check. Cloth napkins? Check. High prices? Negative. The ceasar salad was fresh... More

When we walked in, we were the only customers which worried us, however, we were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was! The owner of the place was a nice guy but he was soft spoken and didn't really make much conversation but that's okay because the food was good!

Don't let the outside fool you. Go inside to have a delicious, home cooked meal. The garlic knots are to die for. The veal calabrese was so tender and tasty. The chicken parmesan was one of the best I've had. The owner came from the kitchen to make sure everything was ok. Everyone was friendly. A delightful experience. Will be... More

I am originally from the east coast but have been living in Colorado since 1983. You don't get good pizza in Colorado. Whenever I come back to New York one of the first things I get is s slice of pizza. The family and I are here in Scranton PA for a wedding and we were out sight seeing. If... More

My husband and I were looking for someplace different for dinner; I found this little gem through TripAdvisor reviews. Our GPS didn't take us right there, so we had a minute or so of fumbling for directions, but boy, was it worth it! When we arrived, I thought there had to be a mistake. It doesn't look like so much... More
