First time in many year's to visit - went for the Anniversary Menu and it was fabulous. Beautiful decor, excellent service, the owner came by our table several times during the meal to check on us and the food was superb. Light as clouds gnocchi, creamy pasta carbonara, delicious calamari, fungi and mozzarella appetizers and meltingly tender veal dishes. We... More

My family and I had a most enjoyable birthday dinner this Saturday night and can't say enough about the perfectly prepared recipes. Every meal was cooked to perfection! But what makes this establishment stand out from the rest is the staff. Each and every person, from the host/hostess, to the wait staff and runners, went above and beyond to accommodate... More

Stopped in and was seated very quickly. Had a lot of the specials! Delicious! Ate the fresh Mozarella and tomatoes! Delicious! I had the fish and it was superb! There is a beautiful wine cellar downstairs. You could tell this was a local place to eat!

I took two friends there for dinner on the recommendation of the concierge at the hotel where I was staying. We had a good table in the window and beautiful food. The wine was, we felt, really expensive with most starting at $140 per bottle. The waiter recommended a red at $60. This turned out to be very acceptable. We... More

We had a wonderful meal at La Famiglia Ristorante while attending the Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia. The restaurant was recommend by the Concierge at our hotel and I take these with a grain of salt but in this instance he was spot on. The staff was friendly, the food was well prepared and very tasty. I hope to get... More

Bygone era of tableside attention. You feel like a movie star. The atmosphere is grand but not stuffy, the food is premiere Italian classics - plus first class steaks. The wine list is vastly extensive and has labels to help you recall dimly remembered bottles from the past. The main thing, however, is the gracious, extraordinary and most welcome level... More

Only negative is limited parking and pricey $23 on a Sat. night. The food and service was outstanding. It is located in an excellent area of town. It is not a large restaurant, but has 2 floors and a very accomodating staff. The menu and wine list is varied and pricing is what you could expect from a first class... More

If you like this combination you are in for a treat!! Just finished the most wonderful dinner in a quiet romantic old charm decor restaurant. The service was over the top but certainly not pushy this is the nicest we'll run dining room that I have experienced in a long while. The food was also top notch. I wish I... More

Great food, incredible wine list, and good service. The special was branzino fish. It was prepared, deboned and served at the table, and it was awesome! The restaurant is small and charming.

As some of you know, when I review a Hotel or Restaurant, I am inclined to look at the People or better known as Staff. I was advised by Sean, the Concierge at the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia, that I would enjoy the noted La Famiglia Ristorante for ambiance, food and most of all the elaborate wine list. In town... More
