Visited with two business associates during Philadelphia restaurant week. Food was fabulous. I had a veal dish special. It was tender and prepared perfectly. Gnocchi as a first dish was also prepared perfectly. On top 5 of restaurants ever visited.

We just walking in off the street. The lunch was fantastic and the service was too. Very attentive to the kids and willing to go off-menu for a picky eater. I would love to return.

This was one of my all time favorite restaurants over 10 years ago. Returning last night I found it to be still worthy of my fondest memories. My wife had never been but now she understands why I always rated La Famiglia so highly. We were equally impressed by the food, the attentive service and the old world atmosphere. Though... More

I cannot say enough positive things about this place. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. It was a very romantic atmosphere with taper candle on the table and wine suggestions from the manager was terrific. We felt very welcome and never had to lift a finger. Make sure to see the wine cellar downstairs! Phenomenal. Well done. Tiramisu... More

We made reservations for 4 and were nicely accommodated at a round table nestled in a corner. All of the servers and the sommelier were very helpful and attentive. Their bruschetta was delicious and our carpaccio appetizer and octopus appetizer were a huge hit. We had veal, seafood, steak, and a scallop seafood dish. Everyone was very happy with their... More

We were in town with friends for the Army-Navy game and were a little intimidated by how formal the dining area appeared. Staff was very friendly - and took us downstairs to the wine cellar where we were placed in the corner and could be noisy without bothering anyone. Service and food were terrific. We all had fabulous food. The... More

Service was really good . Polite waiters checking you all the time. Soft cream appetizer was awesome and we ordered some beef appetizer too which was good. We order bruschetta pasta in a appetizer size . Don't order! It is not special ! The main course was veal! Still I think we would have been better off ordering sea food... More
