The pasta selections are huge I usually get a doggy bag and have enough for lunch the next day. I have tried their bolis and hoagies and they are great too. The antipasto is huge

Armetta's pizza is good but don't overlook the rest of their menu! The subs are monstrous in size and full of flavor. The pulled pork barbeque sandwich is done just right, and the fries are delicious.

Armetta's has been serving in the Lehigh Valley for over 20 years. They started out in a small pizza shop and now have two locations. If you want to have award winning pizza or other great Italian items this is the place to stop!

I can?t say much about the service since I usually get take out but the food is great. Pizza is not the best I?ve ever had but it is VERY good! Sandwich sizes are nice. I personally find the entre dinners a little pricey so I don't usually order them. My favorite menu item is the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak. They also make a Buffalo pizza and stromboli that are very good as well.

Armetta's Pizza is the best around. Entrees and Boli rate high. Sandwiches are expensive for amount of food. Overall a good place to visit.

PROS: fast take-out, relaxed inside service
CONS: sandwiches overprices

When Franco was running the store, Armetta's was non pareil, the best of the best. He truly understood that the best way to ensure business was to offer great ingredients in good portions, with good service accompanied by a cult of personality. He knew many of his (considerable number of) customers by sight, remembered many names. He was upbeat and always happy to see you; he KNEW that customers were his fortune and UNDERSTOOD that treating them with respect would bring them back.

I knew that Franco was turning the running of his business over (initially to his daughter, Alexia, a bona fide shrew), but I had had no contact with the store for some two years. About a month or two ago, I was ""treated"" to an Armetta's House Hoagie. Armetta's House Hoagies were incredible: stuffed with meats and cheese and dressed well. The House Hoagie I was ""treated"" to was two dollars higher in price than the last I had purchased, and contained, at most, two-thirds the ingredients. It was pitifully anemic. Subway makes a better hoagie.

To continue: I just moved back to Emmaus and unpacking revealed a $10.00 Armetta's gift certificate, signed by Alexia, herself. (This was the result of another unfortunate story, the result of treatment by the staff under Alexia's clumsy and self-centered direction, in 2005.) We decided to use the certificate (which did not have an expiration date) to purchase a pizza -- certainly NOT a hoagie.

The store is within convenient walking distance of our apartment, so we walked up and ordered a large pizza with extra cheese. They rang up the order -- their policy is that you pay for take-out BEFORE it's made -- and I gave the counterman the certificate. His reaction was, ""Wow, check this out; it's from 2005!"" and then to call a guy I assumed to be the Manager On Duty over. The Manager took the certificate, looked it over, and then -- without a word to us -- disappeared upstairs for almost five minutes. I revised my estimate of his title to Floor Manager, and figured he was checking with the REAL Manager (whom I assumed to be Alexia).

When he finally returned, he said, rather ungraciously, ""Well, there's no expiration date, so we'll accept it."" His tone suggested that we were damned lucky he was being magnanimous and doing us such a big favor. I replied, ""I'll bet Alexia bled from the eyes when she okay'd it."" He said, rather acerbically, ""I'M the owner."" But, he did not bother to identify himself. The tab came to fourteen dollars and change -- for a 16"" pie with extra cheese....

So, he's a mannerless boor who happens to own a food joint that's trading heavily on the reputation established by a knowledgeable, hard-working guy who understood his role in the interplay between business and customer. This clown hasn't got a clue.

We walked home and ate pizza. The crust was underdone and rubbery. Somewhere under the cheese I caught visual hints of sauce; I never did really taste it, because the wasn't enough of it to taste. The cheese was standard. All in all, the pie was mediocre. Domino's is a much better value, and, actually, their pizza is better.

The upshot is:

Food: Over-priced and mediocre;
Ambiance: You're damned lucky we're here for you;
Management: Haughty; thinks his s**t doesn't stink, and he sees customers ONLY as a source of revenue.

Want to eat out? DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY AT ARMETTA'S. It's not worth it.
