We went for a pre-holiday family meal - 4 adults and a toddler. From the minute we sat down the staff was friendly and so sweet to my little niece. We had a Groupon and the table had ceased salad and a delicious innovative version of Italian wedding soup. We had the salmon and linguini special- perfectly prepared with light... More

The service couldn't be beat. The food was very good. Maybe a little pricey, we were a party of four and the check was $157 with 4 entrees and 6 drinks. They do have BYOB on Tuesdays and Fridays.

This was a repeat visit. Both times the food and service was excellent. Al, the owner, made us feel welcome. Try the pizza patate as a large shared appetizer or as a main course. The crust, dressed sweet ricotta, was enhanced by the perfectly salted sliced potatoes on top. The salmon was moist and the al dente side of pasta... More

The calamari was average but everything else was excellent. This is a great place to eat and the service was really good.

I visit this place often and love the food here. I recommend this place to anyone that's visiting Philly. I would personally recommend the Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. Save room for the dessert menu. The service is excellent and the servers are top notch. I have been a repeat customer for 5 years and would recommend it to anyone!

Had dinner there last week and I was very disappointed. My wife and I have been going to this place for many years. However, this time the service was sorely lacking and the pizza, usually good, was below par. Perhaps because I was alone, but the waiter simply didn't perform. The pizza crust was just flabby and the toppings were... More

Simple review, is exactly what it says it is family run Italian with well cooked food, plenty of choice and staff that care about what they are doing. Would definitely go back.
