Hi All,
  Thinking of taking a day trip to Old Forge Pa for Pizza. Any suggestions to where and what is a must try? Will be going for lunch time not dinner.
Thanks as always for the best suggestions.

    catwoman, I believe the only places you are going to find open are Salerno's and Arcaro & Genell.  
     
    The chef/owner at salerno's pasted away a couple years ago and the food went downhill.  It was a very big loss for this small family owned place, but it seems they are getting back on track.  I was there last week and there was a big improvement.
     
    At Arcaro & Genell, the double stuffed white pizza is a must.  Here is a link to a trip report from wanderingjew.
     
    If you can change your hours, Ghigiarelli's is the place to go for red pizza.

        Mrs and I have had varying results with A&G pizza; 2/3 of the time it's been excellent, 1/3 of the time it has tasted stale and left over. Odds are, for lunch you'll probably be OK.
         
        Take a look at the menu and the house specialties. The first two, penne profumante and fettucini capricciosi, are just insanely awesome down home American Italian.

          The one time I was there everything was freshly made and prepared
          and it was off hours too (between lunch and dinner)

              Hi Guys,
                   I went to Arcaro & Genell and had a cheese pie. The pie was ok, maybe I am jaded being from NY and very picky about my pizza. Would I go back, don't think so. Service was good. Place is old fashion, has a 60 early 70 vibe to it. NY City and Westchester Co. still has the best Pizza as far as I am concerned.

                Did they serve the complimentary  bean, olive and garbanzo plate?
