Attended a private tasting event at Vetri. We had very high expectations and the Vetri team blew us away. The restaurant is very small, 2 floors, but they make great use of the space they have and its very cozy. Throughout our evening every course...More

There's probably not much more I can say about Vetri Cucina that's not already been said, but it was a perfect evening for me enjoying some of the best food I've ever imagined! I was in Philadelphia alone, so dining alone, and felt perfectly comfortable...More
