Not what expected

I expected a bigger restruant when walking in but all the staff was very friendly. Our waitress was great and friendly. We tried the new root beer beer and it was good. Also had calimari as an appetizer which was really good. Our entrees weren't as good but we're decent. I thought it would be... read more

This is one of my favorite south philly restaurants. They have fantastic Italian dishes on the menu that you can never go wrong with. They also have seasonal seafood dishes that you can never go wrong with. If your in the mood for something different they also serve great ribs. The staff is fantastic with a family atmosphere. The place... More

You wouldn't think a place that touts itself as being both BBQ and Italian would be good at both, but Bomb Bomb really is. The barbecue ribs and chicken were done to perfection and the seafood fra diavolo is out of this world. It's a small little neighborhood place with some interesting history to the restaurant's name, but the staff... More

When my brother-in-law took us to this restaurant as one of his favourites, I firstly couldn't figure out what it is so special about this tiny place in between nowhere. The homemade Italian food served by most friendly lady answered all the questions. It's a very local and friendly restaurant, serving only homemade authentic Italian food, which was to die... More

I saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. I had the half ribs lunch special with spicy barbecue sauce. They were very tasty. The meat fell off the bone and there was very little fat. My mom had the chicken parm sandwich. She loved it. It was obviously home made. Would definitely go again.

Friendly people take care of you. Starters were very good and the ribs out of sight. It's best to take a taxi there nowhere to park

This South Philly fixture lives up to being a great place for crabs, seafood, and old fashioned pasta dishes with gray/ I have had the crab cakes, just like Maryland style. The Ribs here are fantastic as well as the chicken. There is a full service bar and they have their own Larger on Tap. Service is family friendly. On... More
