Arrived a bit before 6PM and left at 8/20PM. In between eleven different plates of unbelievably good things to eat were placed on the table. After sitting down a complimentary glass of sparkling wine got me off on a good start. This is an eatery which has a "Chef's Tasting Menu". Guests are given a list of appetizers, pastas, entrees...

And not even close. It is pricey but totally worth it. And please let them surprise you with their choices. We had the wine pairings with our meal and we learned so much about the wine as well as the food it was served with. If you have a special occasion to celebrate, this is the perfect spot. 💕

Look at my reviews - they're all 4 and 5 stars. Why so high? Well, I do my homework and only go to places where the kitchens do wonderful work. The place doesn't have to be fancy - as long as pleasant and professional people serve me a well-prepared and tasty meal. With that being said, my dining experience last... More

The food is very good, and the service is the best in Philadelphia. The knowledgeable wait staff actually like their clients and make them feel as if they are family. There is a Blitzkrieg of different delicacies that run the whole gamut of the food chain. You leave full after a two to three hour performance, which can be likened... More

I went here for a birthday dinner for the 9 pm seating and was graciously given complimentary bottomless prosseco upon arrival since our table wasn't ready yet. The tasting menu is selected for you if you're open to the chef bringing out whatever dishes they recommend and they'll do a wine pairing with each course if you choose. They don't... More

After reading all of the reviews of Vetri we had high expectations for our meal. It started out well as we had a great table and were given a glass of prosecco. The appetizer plate with small bites as well as the fresh vegetables were excellent. The pasta dishes were well executed but nothing unique. The other dishes were heavy,... More

Vetri takes Italian food to another level. Besides the great food and wine, I love the tasting format, the staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable and the townhouse setting is welcoming and comfortable. Every ingredient is carefully selected. The olive oil is a blend of different oils that make the final product taste buttery. It made the olives taste like... More

We had our third visit to this restaurant, but had not been here for four years. We had the grand wine pairing with our meal. Our service was impeccable with an depth description given of each wine and dish served. The wines were also very well paired. The pasta dishes were outstanding and I would say the signature plates were... More
