i really wanted to like this place. i'm searching for a GOOD italian restaurant in central PA and continually fail to find the one. calamari appetizer was good. tender and not overcooked. of the 4 entree's we tried only one was worthy of reordering. the spaghetti carbonara was the best i've ever had at a restaurant. i make a very authentic carbonara at home and this is the only one i've ever had that even approaches true carbonara. the veal parm was ok. i didn't like the meatballs and the red sauce was disappointing. while the seafood fra diavlo was a huge portion of pasta-the balance of seafood was pitiful. only 3 jumbo shrimp 3 mussels and 2 scallops. if it had some clams in the sauce or some other inexpensive filler like calamari it would have balanced w/the amount of pasta. i guess i'll keep looking.

3 in our party had spaghetti and meat balls. The menu indicates the meat balls are home made, they serve 4 meat balls and they were excellent. The sauce was very good. The portion of spaghetti was more than anyone in our party could eat, so they are generous with their portions. The rolls were warm and tasty, they served oil and pesto for dipping but also brought some butter when requested.
The salad was served with all spring mix and it too was a very generous portion. The prices were a tad more than some restaurants charge but the portions are much larger.
We would return.

My husband and I went to Medussa on Valentine's Day. The food was excellent. The service was great. Very, very friendly. Everything at Medussa is homemade including the bread and pesto sauce which is good enough to eat for a meal. Chef Bob personally visited our table and chatted. There is nothing negative that I can say about this restaurant. We have already planned our return trip.
