Before I began this review, I read the previous two, noting they were both good and approximately a year apart. I wish I could be that generous. I took a shot on a Friday evening and THAT may have been my first mistake. Called in the order 45 minutes ahead so no excuse there when I arrived and it wasn't prepared. Small franchise place manned by only 2....on a Friday in this area? Unheard of. Order consisted of an order of wings, a plain medium pizza and a tailgate hoagie. As I waited I watched the two poor guys nearly running into each other trying to get things done. The one guy doing the food prep had a clue.....the other poor guy was having a nervous attack just trying to operate the register. Right then and there, I knew I was in trouble. Extra 15 to 20 minutes and I brought my order home. Wings...warm not hot and nothing spectacular but at least edible. Pizza had no sauce, no cheese, no taste.....like eating a cardboard cutout. Threw most of it away. The hoagie is a separate issue. I LOVE Italian hoagies and pride myself on eating only the best in the area I can find. This was one of the worst....all bun, EXTREMELY little meat, cheese and NO SWEET PEPPERS as I had requested. This trip and purchase was a disaster from the word go. We have a zillion pizza and hoagie places here in the area, but I like to give the new guy a try. I did. No more here. With THIS quality of food, they'll be lucky to survive even with a truck stop across the street. Wish I had better news,

Went for a business lunch.Got a chicken caesar salad and got 2 packets of Paul Newman's dressing. I can get that at McDonalds. Sandwiches my guests had looked good though.The place was completely dead. Not more than a few tables of people and this was right at lunchtime which should be very busy. The dining room is very dark and dreary.It could be the lack if traffic at the plaza or it could be the food/atmosphere....either way I hope for their sake that they are busy at other times.

Mariano's La Puccia

Reviewed By Lori S

Read about the restaurant on a national website review as the beat Italian restaurant in PA. Had to find out what it was. Definitely didn’t disappoint. Never had a La Puccia, thin crust on top and bottom filled with all kinds of things. We had steak and cheese puccia and a Italian Style. Plus an antipasto and cappelletti soup. They were homemade cappelletti not tortellini as most restaurant put in soup. The owner walks around and speaks with every one in the restaurant. The desserts Oh My, the lemon tort was amazing. Very affordable, delicious and pleasant to visit.

Napoli Pizza has the best wings around by far, especially with their own "Napoli Sauce". Pizza is very good also. Grandma's Pizza is delicious & just like homemade,square cut, pizza made with crushed tomatoes & seasoning. Great meals & subs. Pricing is reasonable.

I heard about Grico's private rooms and wanted to check it out for my birthday. We went and had a lot of fun. It's very private and intimate - something I liked a lot. The food was excellent, easily one of the best steaks I've had anywhere in Northeastern PA. I definitely plan on coming back. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is a real gem. The menu is extensive, and the food is outstanding. I had haddock with olives, tomato sauce and capers, which is a dish you don't find very often. Since this is BYOB, your bill at the end of a fine meal is very reasonable.

The restaurant is clean and remodeled. The wait staff very friendly. The food is good and very reasonably priced. We had gnocchi (that were homemade) and the strip steak special. Lemon lush for dessert. So good. When you want a good homemade meal for a great price stop by.
