Last night I paid a visit to this Italian restaurant in Allentown and I believe I have officially reached food nirvana. We often get asked at book signings where the best Italian food is in this city. And, I’m here to tell you it is at Alla Famiglia. I double dog dare you to prove me wrong. Seriously, some of the best food I have eaten in this city. Period.
When you go to Alla Famiglia, be sure to make a reservation and ask to be seated on the first floor at one of the handful of tables that look into the open kitchen. In this open kitchen, chefs prepare all of the meals, from pasta courses to meaty entrees. Smells of robust flavors fill the room, flames shoot up high above the sizzling pans on the stove, and the chefs call out to you, asking how your meal is and if you need anything. When you dine at Alla Famiglia, you are engaging in a dining experience of multiple courses of food served at a pleasant, non-rushed pace. It’s a lovely, engaging, and filling experience, something I recommend each of you experience for yourselves.
