For nearly a quarter-century, Diamond’s has been the shiniest jewel in Mercer County’s restaurant crown. Originally based in Trenton’s Chambersburg district, Diamond’s today continues its tradition of the finest authentic Italian cuisine ‒‒ not to mention the best wine list ‒‒ in the county from its new home in Pennington.

The original Diamond’s, named for the father of managers Thomas and Anthony Zucchetti, first opened on a one-lane street in Historic Chambersburg in 1982 and quickly established itself as the premiere Italian restaurant in a city known far and wide as the destination for Italian food. Over the years Diamond’s has been awarded the DiRoNA Award as one of the most Distinguished Restaurants in North America, the fittingly named Five Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, and Zagat Award of Distinction, among many others.

In 2009 the Zucchettis took a break from the restaurant life, but learned you can’t keep the shine off a crown jewel for long. In 2013 the brothers decided it was time to revive the restaurant in a new location. They reopened in Pennington, even bringing back one of its original chefs, to create exquisite Italian cuisine to a whole new set of lucky taste buds, as well as to old friends.

And with the best seafood, steaks, chops, sandwiches, and other fine Italian cuisine goes superb wine. And Diamond’s is legendary for its perfect food and wine pairings. In fact, Diamond’s has won the “Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence” in ‘Wine Spectator’ magazine in 2014, 2015, and 2016. The magazine’s Restaurants Awards honors restaurants that offer “a well-chosen selection of quality producers, along with a the match to the menu in both price and style.”

Of course, Diamond’s isn’t just a place for a top-notch night out. It’s also “Where Business Gets Done,” and after a quarter-century as one of the top Italian restaurants in the region, smart businesspeople know that superb, authentic Italian cuisine makes doing business sublime, whether in the Ruby Room, Sapphire Room, Wine Room, or Chevy Room. Each room can seat small or larger parties, and Diamond’s can host parties up to 250 guests in multiple rooms.

The restaurant also offers fine catering for private and business events.

Don’t just take our word for it. Stop into Diamond’s for lunch or dinner and experience authentic Italian cuisine at its finest. Visit
