Mazzella's Italian Restaurant
729 Philadelphia Pike
This neighborhood hangout screams pizza joint but cooks homemade meals. The taproom-type spot is as welcoming to little chefs celebrating their third birthdays as it is to bowling leagues yucking it up over pizza and beer. Chicken cacciatore, as well as sausage, peppers and onions, are first rate. Mouth-watering, garlicky broccoli rabe is delectable. Casual. Dinner and lunch.
