Fabulous tapas

Albeit crowded and noisy, Food is incredible! Order and share with your dining partners (except for the pecorino pasta). Buffalo ricotta and black pepper brushetta was great. Sals old school meatballs are delicious. Persimmon salad was sweet and salty. Very good! My favorite every time I dine here... read more

Made a reservation here for a Friday night and still had to wait when we arrived, but it was well worth it. The food is incredible. I suggest ordering a ton of apps and splitting them. The swordfish meatballs will blow your mind. If you can save room you won't regret over ordering on the fresh made pasta dishes and... More

If you want traditional boring italian go somewhere else. If you want great food that will leave you wanting more this is your spot. Great service parking is tough however.

Tripe stew to die for. Pasta al dente...perfect! Rice pudding outstanding. All breads baked on site. Rustic casual atmosphere...music a bit too loud but otherwise 5 stars!

As many of the other reviews indicate, the place is on the loud side. Who cares? The food is incredible. A true Vetri Classic. The dishes are all very creative and if you are looking for gravy and meatballs, go to South Philly - although the meatballs were amazing here. Go in a group and try 4 courses, you won't... More

First-and-foremost, if you love Italian-inspired American food, then you absolutely need to try this restaurant. The menu options are exceptional and your most difficult decision of the day will be trying to narrow down the list of dishes you want to order. Even better, the food that arrives at the table will, quite frankly, knock your socks off. It will... More

We ordered three appetizers that we shared and two entrees. The meals are prepared as family style and are meant to be shared in opinion. The food was excellent with... More

Love the casual setting and the creative interiors. Loved the meatballs made from Swordfish. Save some room for dessert, and if its available they offer probably the best Tiramisú I have ever tasted.

I went to Amis with a friend and had a great experience. It's not super fancy - pretty low key but cozy and great service. We shared a couple of carafes of organic "house" wine which was amazing and well priced. We then shared a number of dishes, all of which was interesting and VERY rich. This restaurant is definitely... More
