You couldn't ask for a better meal or atmosphere. Great place to take family. Friendly staff, great food, reasonable prices, can't do any better than this restaurant.

The Alta restaurant makes delicious eggplant parmesan. It is the best in Hazleton. They peel the skin off the eggplant and lightly batter it.

Alta's pizza & stromboli are very tasty. When Neil the owner is making it you're guaranteed a good pie. If he's not there it can be iffy. On a previous visit I had thje Penne Arbbiatto , a very spicy sauce but it as as good as the one I had in Milan.

Alta doesn't look like much from the outside but inside lurks a proud entrepreneur. Many years ago while dining in Naples my interpreter told me not to look at the menu but to ask the proprietor to recommend something. If you ask Neil to make your family a nice dinner you will be amazed (don't forget the eggplant). When you... More

I reviewed Alta in 2012, and seemed to have an unsatisfactory experience. Since then service & timing has improved tremendously! Alta pizzeria isn't like a chain pizza place, it's the exact opposite, but in a good way. The owners & staff are VERY friendly and always have nice small talk with all of their patrons. The staff at Alta treat... More

Do not be in a hurry, if you order something and they tell you 45 minutes, it equates to 2 to 3 hours. Unless you know the owner, you do not get service in a timely manner. Their food is good but if you order multiple items some are hot and fresh and others are cold because of the time... More

Let me start by saying has to be the worst service if all of Hazleton. No one seems to know what they are doing here very unorganized. Slow unattended service by high school kids. Food is not very good sauce takes like they just opened up a can. Their pizza is dry and taste like a cardboard box. The Decore... More

This eatery sort of took me surprise when I walked in. It seemed a bit chaotic... but in the same sense I got the sense it was like a family in a happy panic that they have more people joining them for dinner and had to make room. The food was excellent and I cannot say much more about it....... More

Very disappointing experience. They got order wrong and refused to correct it. Overpriced. Poor value for price. Food was very small portion. Pizza burnt. Long wait.
