“Fantastic, Delicious, a Pleasure”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Radice never fails to impress. Our party of four dined on a mix of their signature 'appetizers' (far too rich and delicious to deserve that appellation) and 'main dishes', and everything was absolutely delicious, The Osso Bucco in particular was falling-apart tender and flavorful, and the lasagna was just to-die-for. We have dined here a half-dozen times in the last year (a large number for us for a single restaurant, as we typically enjoy spreading ourselves around)... we have brought family and friends, and no one has had a single negative word to speak -- about the food, the service, the decor. It's a treasure!!

“Eating Italian”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

It is wise to have reservations for this popular restaurant. A big plus for me was that entering is easy for the mobility impaired, due to a ramp near the doorway. The bar area appears large as it is backed by a huge mirror. The wine list is good and drinks are moderately priced. You can snack on crispy bread and olive oil while making your dinner decisions. .There is much to choose from on the menu from fish to poultry. We dined on veal stuffed with spinach and mozzarelo accompanied by a squash medley, and calf's liver with onions and mashed potatoes. Both choices were delicious although a trifle pricey. If your budget allows you can add a soup or salad as well as scrumptious desserts. Service was quick but not rushed. A very enjoyable dining experience.

“Authentic Italian in the Suburbs”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We have been to Radice many times. The food is always very good and flavorful so don't let the strip mall location deter you. We typically have excellent service although our last visit this past weekend was not on par with what we usually receive. Our waiter was in attentive as he spent a good amount if time chatting with the tables on either side of us. He appeared to know them very well so our water and champagne glasses went unrefilled without a long wait and he carelessly deposited our entrees on the side of the table without a word to us.

Nonetheless, the food would still keep us coming back. Their pizzas are really delicious and are large enough to share as an appetizer. Most of the other starters and entrees are a nice portion, but this is the not the place to go if you are looking for family style Italian. I typically leave full but not uncomfortably overstuffed. This time I had the scallop appetizer which was delicious but didn't have enough butternut squash for me. I did not realize it was fried so be aware of that. My entree was the Branzino which they did filet for me. It came with a side of mixed vegetables. Overall, another great meal and definitely a suburban staple for us.

“Very good alternative to the chains but missing its identity.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Excellent meal, especially tasting a various small plates. The food was fresh and well worth the $.

The thing that I found confusing is that it appeared to me that Radice attempts to be upscale eatery almost to a business crowd. . Which is fine by me and the food qualifies as such.

But it is loud and tight in there with patrons in business suits to patrons in ratty shorts. No identity to the place. But the food is good.

“Very lovely place!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Very nice, I'd say authentic Italinan restaurant in Blue Bell. We were looking for something like this for a long time. Something more Italian than American, and it was indeed. Well certainly come back.
