Italiano Delite: Lotsa Pasta, Plenty of Pizza, Reasonable Price

Here’s this week’s best bet for local food.

: If you haven’t tried out Italiano Delite’s lunch buffet, you’re missing out. It’s always stocked with the makings of a nice “antipast,” also known as salad greens with all the fixin’s.  Count on a piping hot vat of Italian wedding soup, garlic knots, several different kind of pizza and four or five different hot entrees. (The rigatoni with vodka sauce is always worth a taste.) And, the variety on the buffet makes it a great place to go with a group of people, as the choices really do offer something to suite just about every taste. A fountain beverage and a cup of Italian ice are also included in the fixed price. So, as my Grandma used to say, “Manga!” 

1375 Chestnut St, Emmaus, 610-967-9000

Price level: $$.

Open daily 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Have to say that the last time I've eaten at this restaurant was the LAST time. The service was slower than molasses in winter, we received appetizers at the same time our meals came out. Our Alfredo sauce in the Chicken Alfredo & Carbonerra was so watery it was pretty much milk. Our waitress got incredibly rude with one at our table because she didn't want to take her food home, I'd say left overs but it was so bad that she didn't eat any of it. The waitress kept insisting that my friend take hers home to the point she stated "Well isn't there anyone at home that will eat it?" to which finally she got the point that if it was so bad that we couldn't eat it there why would anyone eat it at home. Now you'd think at this point the waitress would try to save face by comping something on the bill or even just taking half off but sadly to say what she did do was charge full price for 2 meals we couldn't eat PLUS slapping an 18% gratuity to our bill. Guess she realized that was the only way she'd get a decent tip for she was not worth that at all, slow service, no checking on us for refills & being rude about left overs. The only thing that made the evening there worthwhile was the company I was with. The waitress didn't seem to care and I can expressly say that neither did the management since I wrote a letter to them expressing our total dissatisfy evening to which I received NO reply at all. I would not recommend this place at all to anyone, unless you enjoy sub par costly food.
