Small family owned Italian restaurant. Parking lot was packed at 7:30 pm on a Thursday in April, a good sign. No wait to be seated. I had the Pasta Primavera. Lots of fresh veggies: mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, eggplant, red and yellow peppers, broccoli and garlic, all in a nice light red sauce. Excellent! My spouse had the homemade cheese... More

We went to Paese Mio as a party of five in December. The weather was bad and we were looking for something closeby. The food was fantastic and they even had complimentary wine. The decor was quite nice, although maybe a little too much fake greenery throughout the restaurant, which is a total dust collector. The dining room is small... More

Amazing food but such horrible service :( My fiance and I go out to eat probably once a week but I never feel the need to write a negative review. This was our third time here and it was such a bad experience. We sat there for 20 minutes without any services waiting on our table. After finally saying something,... More

Everyone is very friendly and really cares about the experience that you have. In addition ot the pizza that we often take our the entrees are delicious... More

Paese Mio is one of our favorite local restaurants. They have "easy" stuff like pizza and subs, and also excellent dinners. When we get pizza is it either a "Boardwalk" or the "Old Fashioned". On the dinner end of the menu we really like the Chicken Parm and also the Red Clam Sauce. You choose the pasta type for the... More

I lived in the Allentown area for a couple of years and was a regular at Paese Mio. I still go back every time I am in the are and the food is still always reliably good. Their pizza is great, one of the few places that can put eggplant on a pizza and get away with it. Veal dishes... More

Great pizza joint with top of the line sit down meals. Their always changing dinner specials are worth looking at. I had the salmon tortileni Ala Vodka. With shrimp, scallops, peas, onions. Yummy!!!!

Overall, always a delicious meal here, especially the pizza. Very friendly place… complimentary glass of wine with dinner. Now that they have gluten-free pasta & pizza it's a perfect restaurant for our family.

If Paese Mio did not exist, I would have to invent it. Here is a place where you can stop for a take-out slice or stromboli, or sit down for a traditional Italian meal, While the kitchen churns out cheese steaks and pizzas, they also can produce some serious pasta al forno and specialties with seafood. The owners are Sicilian,... More

Just had my first meal at Paese Mio and I can't believe we haven't discovered this place sooner. My eggplant rollatine was scrumptious, nice tender eggplant with lots of cheese, a pretty hearty portion considering it was lunch. The prices on the lunch menu were very reasonable for what you got. The décor is quaint and cozy and felt very... More
