Great market in the Rittenhouse area to buy some authentic Italian goods. The workers at the registers have a great attitude and are very helpful. I specifically like their drink selection... there aren't a lot of places around where you can get a good chinotto.

Di Brunos is the best place in Philadelphia to shop for groceries. Cheese selection is amazing, smoked salmon is cut by order, great variety of meats. They also have ready to eat stuff, such as salads and meat balls.

Ok, this is a pretty easy (Black and White) review for me. No question, Di Bruno Bros has the best cheese selection in Philly! The mothership location on 9th street location verse 17th street market is more authentic when tasting and browsing fromaggio and you get caught up looking for Rocky to run past the store! So, if you are... More

We stopped here for breakfast after a Sunday morning run and were immediately taken by the vintage-style decor, friendly staff, and delicious food. My husband had oatmeal and chai, while I opted for coffee and a bagel. The latter was well worth $10 as it came with a generous schmear of cream cheese and a huge serving of good quality... More

Always love stepping back in time and visiting DiBruno's. we went to the Location on 18 and Chestnut for lunch. Always an amazing selection of foods. Very difficult to choose something to eat. Everything looks (and is) delicious. Finally decided on a bacon jam panini and the hot Italian sausage Links with onions, peppers and green beans. Ate the Dishes... More

While the cappuccino was excellent, the Diplomat Brioche (rather like a bread pudding melded with a brioche) was delicious- especially warmed up by the very courteous counter server. A quick grab, nosh at the counter that looks out on busy Chestnut Street and go- a very pleasant experience all in all.

A lovely deli with a small buffet upstairs which offers a range of healthy and tasty foods for lunch, such as grilled chicken, broad beans, salad leaves, artichokes, and pizza if you want something a bit naughtier. Most foods are charged by weight, so great for groups of varying appetites, especially if you're short on time.

Creative sandwiches on really good, crusty bread - a welcome relief from the usual conveyor belt fare from the chains. And the desserts are seriously good - especially the caramel sea salt brownies.

We stopped in to see about healthy lunch options and were very impressed with this excellent deli/market in central Philly. Our biggest gripe is that the selection of organic foods is very limited... So... great market/deli and lots of really great food - but mostly not organic unfortunately... maybe that's something they can look at for the future as not... More
