We came for a late lunch and were served graciously and with attention. It was the perfect, relaxing place to be after a medical appointment. Excellent presentation of everything which included veal, julienne vegetables, biscotti, cappuccino! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My husband and I were on our way to attend a family celebration in the North East recently and as were were loading our luggage into our car, in front of our Condo Building, we ran into our neighbor, who inquired as to our whereabouts. Upon telling him we were flying into Philadelphia late that afternoon, he suggested that we... More

The food selection was very good and done well. Prices were a little high so this my be a good place to go for a special event like a birthday. The wine list is huge and you can visit it downstairs where the restrooms are located. The service was done just right. They de-boned our fish rifgt at the table.

We made last minute reservations for a group of 10 people. They sat us in the wine cellar. Food was excellent. Our server was Italian and was attentive but not intrusive. Wine list is ridiculously extensive. The book looks like the Guttenberg Bible. Highly recommend.

We were referred by our concierge at the Marriott. We arrived and waited over 15 minutes before our waiter appeared although there were only 5 tables occupied at 8 pm. Both of our pastas were overdone and the sauces were heavy and sweet. Definitely not what we were looking for!

Our last night of our business trip and all 6 of us wanted some place special to celebrate a birthday. This place was perfect! Such a great old building with a family run business. Looks like it has been a pillar of Philly dining for generations. Our meal was delicious. The wine list was extensive; a 3 inch leather book!... More
