Mussels with white sauce is great! I recommend this to everyone! Gnocchi with gorgonzola is amazing. The veal is some of the best I've had.

My husband, two kids and i ate here for dinner while on a visit to Philly during Christmas break. The restaurant was a short walk from our hotel in Penn's Landing and was easy to find.

Veal Porcini was delicious. I already had ate a cutlet at point of photo capture. Side of cappellini in red gravey. Also started with a bowl of pasta fragiole. Incredible flavor.

Dinner with family on Saturday night. Had a drink at the bar beforehand, very relaxing. Our meals were delicious - we never felt rushed, able to linger over coffee and dessert. We will definitely be back. Location was a big plus, too!

My son and I went here recently for his 18th birthday. It was great. My son started with the spiedini for his appetizer. He loved it. It was delicious. I started with the octopus carpaccio. It was fantastic, tasted just as good or better than a similar dish I had on the Amalfi coast last summer in Italy. For his... More

Went here for a family birthday dinner. Really great Italian food. Great service. Lots of room. Much bigger then it looks from the front. Maybe a little pricier than most Italian places but not significantly. Plenty of on street parking in front & a lot next store. Highly recommend.

We reserved a meeting room in this restaurant for a business dinner. Service was very attentive, and everyone enjoyed their meal. Drinks were served promptly, selection was good, and the meal and dessert were excellent.
