The food and atmosphere at this restaurant is the best is Philadelphia. The service is top notch. If you love fine wine this will be your favorite restaurant too. Be prepared for an expensive dinner but worth every penny. Everything is fresh and delicious. Don't miss anything from appetizers to dessert. The Bronzino prepared table side was perfect but don't...

We ate here twice on our last visit to Philly right from walking in the door the service was impeccable , the food and presentation superb. The wine list is daunting but don't be shy about asking for recommendations. we were not disappointed. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Went here with a work colleague looking for an authentic Italian experience and left completely satisfied. Food was excellent, service was old school and the place looked like something from a scene in The Godfather. I loved it. Not inexpensive , especially for a business trip dinner, but if I lived in Philly I would come here for any special... More

Have not been here for two decades.....no decrease in quality.....friendly attentive service....excellent wine choices....the insalata with arugula was delightful to start.....my entree was the veal chop which at medium rare was spot on....others described their branzino as "the best I ever had" with excellent presentation.....desserts were presented on a cart....treated very special.....would definitely return...

The deco is ok and we were sitted in the wine cave, so not in the main hall but that was not the problem. Our pasta wasn't enough and I had for example the "pasta special"-> pasta not homemade and the quality was not even everage. The price for our whole dinner was to expensive and for the quality! It's... More

Service extremely slow 40th Aniv menu no bargain; portions small, no meat in antipasto, chicken at 10.99 not even tender; drinks very expensive. My advice - SKP

The food at La Famiglia was outstanding. Had the Filet and Chicken and both were superb.The servers were very attentive and the wine selection huge. A step back in time in the best way. I can't wait to return!

Have never been here before but saw info on our local news and made a reservation on Open Table right away.. Wow!! Loved the 70 prices and the food was soooo good ! We started with the tomatoes and onions appetizer and the gnocchi with pesto. Both were excellent. Our entrees were the Vitello Papa Sena and the Gamberi Alla... More

My husband, daughter, and I visited La Famiglia Ristorante after a Channel 6 special that talked about La Famiglia's 40th anniversary. So we thought we would give it a try and go for their special 40th anniversary menu. The place reminds me of something out of the "Godfather." Very old Italian looking. Each one of our meals were incredible. The... More

My wife and I took our 9 year old daughter & 7 year old son to La Famiglia in 1980. Last week we took our now 42 year old son and 13 year old grandson. The menu has been modernized a bit and the wine list is even more impressive but the impeccable service, excellent food, and delicious desserts are... More
