Visited this location years ago and just never made it back and decided to try again. If I remember our first visit it was good, but not great. Service is excellent no issues there. Overall everyone at the table was pretty happy but it seems like everyone thought it could be a little better. Place seems to be usually busy and food is on the more expensive side. I feel if food is more on the expensive side, it better be really good. Menu can be overwhelming with another special menu, and then specials on the board at well. Our appetizers and desserts were all very good, but not excellent. Salad and bread were fine. I think the main course was the issue. One said the meatball tasted like it had too much filler. I had the veal parm which I like to compare to other restaurants. It didn't have enough sauce on it. Usually you can't see the meat, but in this case it was not completely covered and the cheese was mostly in the middle. I go to AC, harrisburg, even selinsgrove and I was not impressed by the veal parm and it could have been better if prepared more like other places do. It was on the dry side because it didn't have enough sauce. They have a lot on the menu I would like to try, might try fish next time. I would go again and try something different. If I go again and everyone thinks it could be better I may not go again for years.

we have been frequenting Ghezzi's for dinner since they opened almost 35 years ago. Their bar service and staff are top shelf : and the food is consistently outstanding. The are by far the best restaurant in the area.

Ghezzi's high end menu, food, and service were an unexpected gem in an area generally lacking in high end dining. While prices are higher than those found in surrounding restaurants they are low in comparison to restaurants of similar quality found in other areas. Highly recommended!

Located in the middle of nowhere, Ghezzi's is an excellent Italian restaurant with a full menu and many specials. The place is known locally and seems to always "pack 'em in". We have visited several times and never had a bad meal or a bad experience. The wine list is limited and not all offerings are available. One of best in the region.
