“Feels like home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

We took our son and his girlfriend to Chiarellos on Saturday night for there birthdays. The atmosphere reminided me of my family growing up! The service the staff and Tommy the owner was terrific, we felt like we knew them for years! The food was old school and greatly appreciated by all! Looking forward to returning!

“Wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Even though we arrived unexpectedly just at closing time, the staff made us feel most welcome, even providing a complementary glass of wine.
The ambiance is pleasant and the food was well done southern Italian.
A welcome way to be greeted on our arrival in Philadelphia.

“Best Italian ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

I am usually not one to exaggerate, but I can't think of a better Italian restaurant anywhere -- whether here or in Italy. I had the best Veal Francese ever. I also had a great caprese appetizer, a terrific veal francese and a fantastic tiramisu. If you are in the Philly area, come to this place. It's a short run from center city. It is a BYOB place, but they will give you complimentary wine. I would recommend getting a nice bottle of your favorite wine before you come. That's what I did. I felt blown away by the place. Also, the staff was very friendly
