This is a classic spot in the city for Italian cuisine thats been around for many years and continues to be excellent. I had an olive oil and herb marinated steak and eggplant on my last trip and both were excellent. Fantastic wine list.

Dinner with colleagues - greeted warmly and seated quickly. Friendly staff. Excellent wine list with moderate prices across the board. Note: this is not a place to order a beer. Appetizer of toasted or baked provolone cheese was good. Entree of oversized gnocchi (portions on the smaller side) in a light white truffle sauce was a solid choice. Other diners... More

I spent a half hour reviewing the wine list...I picked an obscure 1997 Barbaresco worth it however the mastermind who created this amazing cellar and collection should give staff some lessons on wine handling. It was decanted obviously but shaken through the process too much. Let's not let this impact the 5 star overall rating. The wine was great...lots of... More

We visited this restaurant for a pre-event dinner. It was a long way from our hotel but I am glad we made the effort down Market St. The wine list has to be seen to be believed! Great range of US and world wines. Food was perfect, good choices and well prepared. Based on our table experience, listen to your... More

This restaurant was a special surprise. On an anniversary weekend away in Philly. The hotel concierge recommended the place and made us a reservation. Being from central FL, my husband said "this place is kind of like Disney perfect...but Disney is fake and this is real.". It was outstanding. The food was fresh and the servers and hostess were very... More

We had dinner at the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service great. The little extras were a very nice touch - bread, bruschetta (before the meal) and biscotti (with the coffee) and provided free. While the cost was on the more expensive side it was not over the top.

Dining here is like a Rat Pack experience. Very pricey but worth every penny. Ambiance is old school Italian. Wine list is massive. Menu incredibly extensive. I was here with my wife and 2 other couples and everyone had an entrée that was exquisite. Stuffed calamari appetizer was fantastic. I had potato gnocchi with truffle for my entrée and it... More

Above Average Italian at best. Over priced. Corking fee of $35 ridiculous compared to other BYOB. Not Southern Italian in anyway.
