So we picked this ressy during my travel to Philly from Canada based on the reviews from Trip Advisor and had my two kids with us after a full day of sight seeing in Philly.
I was expecting good things but I was let down:
1) it was a quiet evening and not busy at all...perhaps 10 or so people in the restaurant but the service was so slow as if there were 100 people in there. Our foods came out at different times; the waitress failed to even come back on several occasions to see if we need anything else...
2) I have to say though - the food was good; was it the best Italian I’ve had? No not really...it was average.
3) This is a BYOB. I didn’t know that prior to going in and only found out that they don’t serve alcohol after asking for the drink menu... it wasn’t a deal breaker for me but its important to note in case your looking to have a few beverages with your meal.
4) Now I’ll save this point for last as I really don’t want to create the impression that I’m hating on this establishment. But imagine the look on my face when I went into the restaurant and found a LOADED FIREARM sitting on top of the window ledge...the firearm was inside a holster left unattended and I figured being the states it belonged to a patron who took it off using the facilities.... Nope! It turned out to belong to who I believe was the manager/owner - who upon being told there was a gun in the washroom was obviously embarrassed and said “sorry about that I used the washroom this morning and didn’t realize...it’s been sitting here all morning”... what do you even say to something like that...tbh I didn’t want to stay at that point but the kids were cranky and hungry and I didn’t feel like looking for another place so we stayed. All I can say is that as someone who owns firearms myself ... this individual should NOT own a firearm and needs to seriously consider himself lucky that the gun was found by me and not someone who decided to take it and god knows where it could have been used....and on who.
I can sincerely say I will not be coming back to this restaurant again...and do not recommend it. The only positive was that the food was decent....
