LOL, driving down Main Street in Old Forge PA Wed, 01/24/07 7:08 PM (permalink)
My dad and I were up in Clarks Summit, so on the way home we called Revello's for a few trays to take home; 2 white and 1 red half pepperoni half meatball.

We got there around 5:30 and you know, about halfway down Main, right about near Augustini's Club 17, the car filled up with the wonderful aroma of baking bread and cooking garlic! We could smell it all the way down to the corner where Revello's/Ghigarelli's/Arcaro & Genell's sit, about 2 1/2 blocks.

Nothin' else, just that it was really cool. Garlic and bread everywhere, all over town. The kind of thing that makes a Roadfooder smile. And Revello's was as good as it always is.

    Had one of those same experiences a couple years back as we got to the outskirts of Gilroy, CA on our way from SF to Yosemite.

    At that time I did not know it was the "garlic capital of the world" and couldn't figure out for the life of me why it smelled so intensely of garlic....until we saw the sign welcoming us to the town.

    Look forward to getting back there for another whiff one day!

      yeah, but there's nothing worse than the smell
      of burnt garlic wafting through town.

          I ate at Salerno's just this past October and it seemed to be doing well. And the pizza was excellent!

            I took a day trip to Old Forge from NJ a few months ago, armed with every review and web print out I could find, and it sure is Pizza paradise. A set up like that has got to be unique in all of the US. There's a slight resemblance to the town of Nanuet NY, which has about 4 noted pizza havens on the short Main Street, but Old Forge has at least a dozen.

            Only problem was, I had told the family I'd be home with Dinner. I got to Old Forge at about 11:30 AM with an itinerary of 10 places and only found a few places open. Most of the places open at 4 or 5PM even on weekends. Not good for day trips from New Jersey.

            But I did get pizza from Revello's, Salerno's and Maxies and one other place (don't have my notes handy). And took home enough pizza for several meals. It's amazing how each pizza was distinctive in it's own way, all great. FWIW, we all thought Revello's the best.

            PS: The wierdest thing was i could not figure out for the life of me how to get into Club Augustine. I went in front, around the back, pulled on several doors, waited outside for 10 minutes for someone to either come or go. I know they were open, I could smell the pizza, the sign said they opened at Noon, and it was 1 PM. I finally gave up and went on my way.
