So good!

I happened in here while on a business trip and the setting feels like old world Europe and the food was wonderful. The servers are very attentive, my only recommendation would be to slow down service, the food came out with little to no break between courses.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Philadelphia. The setting and service are a step back to old Italian classy dining. Service is impeccable and food fantastic. It's Family and it's wonderful.

My wife and I had a sumptuous meal at La Famiglia this evening. Every aspect was well done. The appetizer started the meal and raised expectations, which were met throughout the evening. Fantastic evening experience.

Our family got stuck in Philadelphia because of a snow storm. We were looking for a quick meal and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at La Famiglia. The ambiance was warm and cozy on a very cold night. The staff was elegant, attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and the desserts were to die for. We will... More

Just the place to rekindle memories of eating well in Italy: starched white table covers, attentive waiters, elegant atmosphere, and very good Italian food. This is not a "trendy" place. We recently took friends; the decorous atmosphere allowed for nice conversation and a leisurely, well-paced meal. We couldn't believe that we had spent almost three hours over dinner. The wine...

We had an early New Years dinner here( 2015) and it was Delicious. The atmosphere was delightful, you could have a comfortable conversation during dinner. The Lobster ravioli, veal chops and deserts were all excellent. It had been 29 years since I first ate at this wonderful Philadelphia institution and found it even better. I will be sure to visit...

When I noticed that 2 of the items I had seen listed on the Restaurant Week website were not on the menu, our waiter asked the cook and he said he it would make it for me! How nice! Everything was yummy! Would... More

We were here a few nights ago with friends for dinner after a hiatus of maybe a decade. I remember that La Famiglia was my all time favorite Italian restaurant in Philly. It still is, but it is not the La Familigla of the past. The service was very, very good and professional. You could have a conversation during dinner... More
