Armetta's Pizzeria 2 - Clarks Summit, PA
Armetta's: You Don't Have to Travel to Old Forge to Get Good OF PizzaUntil now, I have not yet reviewed the same pizza twice, but I think that needs to change for a few reasons! First, I think that winning the 2012 NEPA Pizza Review Best Pizza of 2012 does warrant another visit to Armetta's in Clarks Summit. Next, Armetta's offers both New York Style and Old Forge pizzas, so it was time for me to go back to see how the Old Forge was since I've only reviewed the New York Style so far. In addition, Armetta's was under construction during my last visit, so I needed to go back to see the finished product! Plus there's just so much to say about every pizzeria in NEPA that I could write a totally different article for you all to read!
As I pulled up to the new Armetta's, I was impressed with the exterior face lift with a whole new facade, sidewalk, and lighted pillars by the street which set off their trademark sign which always has something clever to say. I walked inside to see that the building had been expanded to make room for a bar in the front area, which was a nice touch to add on to the relatively expansive beer selection. This bar struck me as more of a good place to eat a quick lunch rather than a place that I would want to belly up to for multiple drinks. In any event it was very nice. If you want to read more about the place, check out my previous review here. Let's talk pizza! I ordered a 12 slice Old Forge Red pizza (the menu calls it "square", but rest assured it's Old Forge) for $11.75. I was told 20 minutes to pick it up, and sure enough it was ready right on time.
