Weren't too sure about the place when we walked in, but wanted to try it after reading the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It turned out to be very friendly service and terrific homemade Italian food. I would definitely recommend the drive out of Gettysburg to the restaurant.

We all came from different cities to meet up in a central location. 12 of us. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and the service. The food was homemade. Warm bread. Homemade salad dressing. Homemade deserts too. We will be back

We've eaten here quite a few times and know it is THE best place in central PA for authentic Italian food. Louisa hand crafts every dish and you can taste the attention to detail in every bite. The first dish I had there was spinach cannelloni. This was about five years ago and I still remember. More recently I had... More

Found this #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor while passing through New Oxford. I can see why it is # 1. The owner and her daughter do all the work, they treat you like family. Mama is the chef/ pastry chef and owner. She frequently comes out of the kitchen to make sure your are happy and satisfied. Her daughter... More

My husband and I decided to venture here as we had heard from two separate people independently that this was the place to go for authentic Italian food. We did the almost hour drive there as we also wanted to do something different and were tired of chain restaurants, The food was great...the owner, who also cooks, visits your table... More

This is the best Italian food in the Gettysburg/New Oxford area. The food is authentic Italian cooked by the owner (Momma Luisa). The service is superb and the atmosphere is very friendly.

My friend Katie and I stopped here for dinner on our last night in Gettysburg, and it was absolutely amazing. The food was insanely good. Its a family run restaurant and the mother is the chef. For desert we had the cannoli and cheesecake and took a tiramisu home with us. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for true, authentic... More
