Tucked away on chestnut street, the atmosphere is inviting. The bread is wonderful. Also wide pasta variety & quite good. A mid- day glass of wine is sometimes welcome. Staff friendly & helpful.

The food was great. I really enjoyed the salad and breadsticks. I also enjoyed my dumpling soup. the tour of Italy was also good. The restaurant was very dark and depressing. i could not see any light from outside. the waiters were nice but it seemed like a forced niceness

I was visiting philadelphia when I tried this good restaurant. They offer delicious food such as fried calamari rings, mozzarella sticks, and different amazing pastas such as past alfredo with schrimps and many other kinds. Besides, they do offer great dessert like chocolate mousse, pumpkin cheese cake.... I love this place!!!

The server was on top form, polite, efficient and happy. Service excellent. Extensive menu and portion sizes matched our expectations- not to big nor to small ! Prices very reasonable. Would advise patrons to go early in the evening since it does get busy.

The person serving our table was very helpful and explained the content of food considering our special diet. The food was delicious and the portion of food was more than enough for us.

A nice place which makes you feel great. Had great food and the taste of soup still fresh.. Couple of friends were having Italian for first time and now they are to hooked.. A couple of varieties for vegetarian will be an added bonus

This restaurant was supposed to have Italian cuisine, however this is worse then every little restaurant I am used to in my home country (Germany). Big surprise to me that they are still in business. Very few selections possible on pizza or pasta and finally it all looks the same to me. The only good news: I do not need... More

Was there with my wife for a quick meal. The service was very good and the meal was good as most of the olive garden's are the same. If you are in center City and looking for a quick stop this is it. They did not hurry us but soup to nuts took about 45 mins.
