We asked Patchers across the region where they go for their favorite Italian meal. Here are the results.
It was a big field in Doylestown, but when the polling closed, Ristorante il Melograno came out on top. One reader wrote, "Ristorante Il Melograno is authentic with great food.”
The question was more specific in Warminster, where users chose the best spaghetti and the answer was clear - Roman Delight.
Upper Southampton voters seemed clear on their choice, too, as Angelo’s Café beat all challengers as best Italian food.
The results were similar in Hatboro-Horsham, where Buona Via Ristorante Italiano earned 40% of the vote for a decisive victory. One user’s emphatic comment: “Buona Via Ristorante Italiano - great atmosphere, food and service. Will be taking some visitors there Tuesday night!”
Ricardo's carried the day in Lower Moreland, finishing a handful of votes ahead of the nearest competitor.
Lower Southampton saw a similar finish, with Lamberti's Cucina just three votes head of the next competitor.
A close race in Bensalem ended with Calabrisella on top. “Callabrisella by far…the best food anywhere,” Patch reader Margie Knowles said.
Ariana's Pizzeria came out on top in Levittown’s rather large field of choices. The voting was spread so thin that Ariana’s won with just 19 percent of the vote.
It couldn't have been much closer in Northampton. Taormina's Pizza and Pasta received the most votes, but Giuseppe's came in with a tie because of their rating.
Newton Patch users were more decisive, handing Vecchia Osteria the win with 44 percent of the vote. "Vecchia Osteria is exceptional," wrote one user. Others noted Vecchia Osteria should win "hands down" and "without a question."
