Place is much bigger than it looks. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Dinner started with giant bread basket and herb infused olive oil that is on the table. Had eggplant parm w/spaghetti very large portion. Big slabs of eggplant. Also had a chicken linguine dish that had shrimp and was in a rich blush sauce. This was good, but was... More

Didn't have the pizza but wish I had. The service was great -the Fra Diavlo average. The server said it would be spicy which it is supposed to be but wasn't. Too much food for a single serving. I know people like mounds of food but this dish could easily serve 3 and it wasn't even a family serving. Same... More

Heard some good things about this place & they were right, the pizza was great, really enjoyed it & would definitely recommend. The location is good, & so is the atmosphere. We just had a pizza but the other food looked just as fantastic so next time will be sampling some other items. Lovely place for families, business or just... More

This is very good Italian food centrally located near Rittenhouse Square. The pizza is great, but so is the solid, if not exceptional, italian fare. You might walk by it without noticing it, but find it. You won't go wrong. Also great for large groups.

Pizza is delicious. Salads are good, too, and plenty for sharing. Nice atmosphere. This visit was once again with family but it's also great with friends or for date night (or for lunch). This is our family's (two adults, two kids) go-to place when we are in Center City and we will keep going back.

I have to caveat my review by stating that the main course for myself and my companion was the delicious pizza. I did crane my neck around and the "regular" food also looked delicious. We started off with the fried mozzarella-- great quality mozz! We then had personal pizzas-- meats, veggies and, most importantly, the smoked mozzarella. All of the... More

We were there for an early dinner, and asked to be seated on the upper floor. The hostess said that that would not be possible due to a private party. So we were fine sitting on the lower level. The table however was wobbly, so we had to ask for it to be leveled. We ordered our drinks, and then... More

Great place for family AND friends. Stopped in here with my son, two of his friends(all under 8) and three adults. The kids meal spaghetti and meatballs were huge portions. The kids loved them. The adults ordered the rice balls and calamari as appetizers which were very flavorful. For dinner the BRUSSEL SPROUT PIZZA just sounded so good we had... More

If your going to go here go to the location on South St. The food is A LOT better at the South Street Location. The Walnut location I wasn't impressed with the food.
