One of my favorite restaurants in the valley! Courteous, respectful and attentive wait staff! Delicious home-made pasta. Always interesting specials, the red beet salad is one of my favorite dishes. Excellent soups as well!

We had dinner at this restaurant on a Friday night around 6PM. The restaurant was practically empty. My wife & I thought the food here was just ok, but was way overpriced. My wife had to cups of hot tea at $2.75 each…………..I had two soft drinks at $3.00 each. I ordered the antipasto, which was suppose to come with... More

Place has a big-city feel. Have to check out the window to make sure it's Pittston. Ate outside once. Kinda noisy. Probably won't do it again, but once was fun.

One of my favorite meals at Palazzo 53 is the penne with shrimp and crab in a light garlic cream sauce. It always arrives piping hot and delicious. I have also had a delicious scallop and risotto special there, I would definitely get it again if it is available. Also, all desserts are homemade and scrumptious. The cheesecake is excellent....

I visited Palazzo 53 last week for an anniversary dinner. This was my first time in this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was new and did a great job of describing our dinner selections. I requested that my chicken marsala be made spicy and in a thicker sauce. It was done to perfection! The chicken was served... More

The restaurant is very loud, and it makes it heard to hear when you're trying to have a conversation. This was on a Tuesday night so I can't imagine what it's like on a weekend. I had the chicken francaise and it was very good and a generous portion. I did enjoy it. However, two other members of my family... More

The food was very good but the restaurant was loud making it difficult to have a conversation. The bill was expensive and the atmosphere was not relaxing.

We were in Pittston for a few days and liked the exterior of this Italian restaurant. We opted for indoor dining one night, and the place is just lovely. It's very reminiscent of a mid-20th century type upscale Italian dining experience, with subtle colors, banquettes, large group tables, and the like. The menu is very traditional Italian fare, with a... More

Nice place, but music was so loud that we were yelling across the table to talk. Food was good, but a bit pricey...a glass of wine was $10 (5ozs).

My wife and I dined here with our friends this evening..... The service was outstanding, the food was plentiful and delicious, and the drinks were strong. It's not the cheapest place in the world, but you get high quality entrees and drinks for the price. Also, we are big on ambiance. Palazzo has plenty. I'm typically pretty critical, however I...
