We had the mozzarella en carozza, ziti bolognese, chicken piccata and cannoli for dessert. Everything was delicious! The bolognese might be the best I’ve ever had. There is a small parking lot, but most of the parking is on the street, so allow yourself additional time to find parking.

Glad you are back - great food as usual & drinks. New decor looks amazing. Two small suggestions - the font size on menus is difficult to read ( too small) but new menu style is lovely. Second, some nice back ground music would be great.

Never disappointed at the Vineyard. The Chicken Parmesan is so tender I can cut it with a fork. Pasta sauce is perfect. Service is always excellent and menu choices are varied enough to try something new each time.

So glad The Vineyard has reopened and still offers the Italian dishes we've enjoyed in the past. The chicken saltimbocca was a treat although we had thought the pasta with marinara sauce would be served on the side as it had in prior years, but our waitress was quick to bring a bowl of the sauce for the table when we asked. We just had to order cannoli for dessert and a double espresso [of course] for each of us.
The meal was a great way to celebrate my husband's birthday and we plan to come back again.

An outstanding traditional Italian Restaurante. All freshly made and a wide selection of salads, pastas, chicken, and veal. Our table had chopping, sea bass, cavatelli, and veal saltimbocca.
They have a full bar and a very wide selection of Italian wines at a fair price.
They have been around for years and it always does an outstanding job.

We have been dining at the Vineyard for 15 years and have always had terrific meals and excellent service. This is the only restaurant where I get veal, tender and delicious. The appetizers are wonderful and the deserts are special. The Vineyard closed for several months in 2018 and we suffered from a lack of excellent Italian cuisine; we were overjoyed when they re-opened. Highest rating.

The food is wonderful, just as in the past. We had the mussels and the chicken pizzaiola. This is the best Italian food in the Lehigh Valley! The decor has been modernized since the reopen. My only suggestion would be table cloths... it’s a personal thing; always classes up a restaurant.

HAD TO talk loudly to friends across the table..................wine served in champagne flute.................didnt like that. Salad dressing was bland but Chicken Marsala was good and abundant. Really good garlic toast. Will return for sure.

So happy to know that the Vineyard is back in business. Décor is "nicer" but kind of miss the old version. However, there's more room for tables upstairs now and more elbow room for diners, so I get it. Menu and food remain excellent. Seafood, chicken and veal dishes our party orders were as good as we remember. Shared a hot antipasto as an app what was terrific. One of the best restaurants in the valley.

The food is as good as ever...but the noise level is off the charts. The remodeling took away charm and noise suppression. It was super loud and not every table was occupied. But the food...so good.

The new atmosphere is great and the food tasted just the same. It even tasted a little sweeter because we thought we’d never taste Pete’s cooking again. It was our first date night out since the birth of our son so we were super excited and The Vineyard didn’t disappoint.

This was my first time back since the restaurant re-opened. The new decor looks great. The food still tastes like before—out of this world. It feels like they never closed. Our meals were so good. We had the lasagna and cavatelli with broccoli in oil and garlic. To top it all off we had a piece of homemade chocolate cake. WOW. Can’t wait to head back for an another outstanding meal!
