Met another couple there and had a great time. New favorite spot in Philly. We were there for over 3 hrs - but never waited for a thing. Service was perfect and flowed well. The cheesesteak spring rolls were as good as always . We also debated heavily which dinner we liked the best - the braised short ribs or... More

We had a pasta dish with chicken. The chicken was smoked and tender. The sauce and the pasta were out of this world. The desserts, the salad, and even the breads they brought us while we were waiting were all first rate and interesting. The service was excellent, and we were surprised how low the tab was considering all of... More

The setting was beautiful in the preserved old building. The wait staff was attentive but not hovering. The elegant atmosphere added to the experience. Every appetizer and food course was better than the previous and layered up to the entrees. There was a wide selection of offerings and looked like there was plenty for everyone.

Great ambience; fine service; excellent cuisine - - all the makings for a wonderful dinner/evening - UNTIL the dining room was overtaken by a large and boisterous group. Even though various diners requested the group tone things down, no luck. Management was oblivious. Loud (obviously many adult beverages had been consumed), people walking around and standing/chatting around their large table,... More

Nice restaurant with elegant ambiance. Service was great, the food was gorgeous (had calamares and then spaghetti with tomatoes). The bread was to die for. Dessert was berry pannacotta, lovely! It's quite pricey but worth it I think! Perfect for a romantic night out.

Forget the hype and other reviews-trust me or waste money- or, if you have never been to N Italy you may not know the difference. The Cesar salad with white anchovies was good..but why do they think the competent salad dressing is better with gobs of it. Show restraint and they have a winner with the salad. However the Tagliatelle... More
