We walked from our Hotel to Spasso in Old Town. It was a small, intimate, casual restaurant. The food was marvelous. We each had one of the nightly specials and were both very please. The wine was nice and the service was also good. I would love to return for another meal.

We had very good, friendly servers that were helpful choosing a dinner entree. Everyone in our group seemed to be very pleased with the dinner they had ordered. Drinks were served quickly and ice water was supplied plentifully and refreshed quickly by the wait staff. I have no idea what the grilled pepper/mushroom sauce for bread (dipping) was called but...

Atmosphere, service and food were great!! We shared the fried calamari appetizer, which was delicious! We both had the the veal with artichokes, and a side of pasta instead of potato. The portions were large and the food was fabulous!! I would totally be a regular if I lived in Philly!! Great dinner!

Suggested by a friend, great choice to try. I had crabmeat ravioli-wonderful, salmon for another-perfectly prepared, all food was well prepared and presented. Service was good.

If you like lots of good southern Italian food, this is the place for you. The service was attentive. The portions large. Everything was tasty. The eggplant parm is big enough for two to share. The grilled octopus is peppery and good. But this is not a great place if you want something other than carbs.

Having a catered event, the kitchen and staff were so thoughtful and prepared my meal to meet my low sodium dietary requirement. Multiple courses and plentiful fare, this festive occasion was made even more pleasant than expected.

We stop by without reservation around 6:30 on a Sunday evening and the place was booming inside. we opted to eat at a sidewalk table and we are so glad we did. The food was superb and the service very good. We watch fireworks from Penn's Landing while we ate. Fantasic 25th anniversary meal! we will be back!!!

Nice wine list and reasonably priced. Delicious salad, pasta dishes. My ravioli was a bit bland. I gave higher marks for my husband's red sauce pasta meal. Very busy, almost too big with several dining rooms. Because the prices are moderate, many families were there. Kind of crazy atmosphere - noisy.

Thank vsmack
