  • It's not the best. It's definitely better than Olive Garden. Good food that truly has Altoona's interpretation of Italian authenticity nailed. I recommend Lena's.
  • Put the butter in your pocket so you can spread it on the bread. It is rock solid.
  • Awesome eggplant part. Great service. Love the sauce. Great food, great people.
  • The homemade noodles are the best! And their salad dressing is really good too.
  • Get the spaghetti. It's homemade and so good.
  • Can't to wrong with soup, salad, or anything with marinara sauce. The meatballs are tasty!
  • Olive Garden in more authentic than this place. Sauce is bland and you could use the lasagna as bricks to build a house! Won't be back.
  • Best restaurant Italian food in Altoona! Open up a Pittsburgh location! #meatballs
