Madonna's Brings Italian Fare to Allentown

Madonna's Brings Italian Fare to Allentown

The owners and operators of Madonna’s have also been running Cafe 59 for the last few years and since we’ve enjoyed our recent visits to the small cafe, we had some high hopes for the food. The restaurant has had some renovations but still has a very simplistic design; aside from a large painting in the dining room (above) the decor is fairly minimal. The majority of the restaurant is centered around the bar, which seats nearly twenty people and where the majority of the customers were hanging out during our Friday night visit.
