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

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...

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
