Alta doesn't look like much from the outside but inside lurks a proud entrepreneur. Many years ago while dining in Naples my interpreter told me not to look at the menu but to ask the proprietor to recommend something. If you ask Neil to make your family a nice dinner you will be amazed (don't forget the eggplant).
When you get the bill you'll be embarrassed. Enjoy !!!

I reviewed Alta in 2012, and seemed to have an unsatisfactory experience. Since then service & timing has improved tremendously! Alta pizzeria isn't like a chain pizza place, it's the exact opposite, but in a good way. The owners & staff are VERY friendly and always have nice small talk with all of their patrons. The staff at Alta treat everyone like family. The food is delicious, warm, & portions are large & plentiful. Alta will always be a favorite for my family & I. We order from Alta almost every week! Thank you Alta for all you do!

Do not be in a hurry, if you order something and they tell you 45 minutes, it equates to 2 to 3 hours. Unless you know the owner, you do not get service in a timely manner. Their food is good but if you order multiple items some are hot and fresh and others are cold because of the time it took to receive your order. This review is based on take out.

Let me start by saying has to be the worst service if all of Hazleton. No one seems to know what they are doing here very unorganized. Slow unattended service by high school kids. Food is not very good sauce takes like they just opened up a can. Their pizza is dry and taste like a cardboard box. The Decore is like you're in someone's living room and a not very clean living room. Take my advice and go elsewhere very big disappointment

This eatery sort of took me surprise when I walked in. It seemed a bit chaotic... but in the same sense I got the sense it was like a family in a happy panic that they have more people joining them for dinner and had to make room.

The food was excellent and I cannot say much more about it.... I tried both pizza and pasta.. generous portions as well.

The service as many people comment on is for lack of a better term... unique. This is not the Olive Garden.... so you are not going to get your chain restaurant "in and out" experience many are accustomed too. In fact, this little place reminded me of my trip to Italy where dinner was an event.

The individual I am assuming is the owner likes to chat it up with people and deep down wants to give everyone the best... if you talk to him he's going to talk to you. I think patience is key when it comes to this place... and in the end, worth a visit.
