Stopped after being on the Big Bus tour, wasn't our first choice of somewhere to stop but we were here and hungry. Had Panini that was ok but will say the fries were excellent. All of the food we had was a bit salty but still very nice. We would have liked to eat outside but there were no tables left today. Affordable lunch, about $12 a person in the party and serving sizes were more than enough.

The place and food looks great. There is outdoor dining and the bartender was very friendly. So why the "but"? Well, the food looks like it'd be really great but according to the wife (who is Italian-American) it was not good. She was looking for a sausage and broccoli rabe dish which we found at this restaurant as an appetizer. However, there was apparently too much salt in the dish plus she said there was small bits of something in the sausage that is not usually there. Not sure if some ingredient is deliberately added to the sausage but it threw her off as she did not know what it was. In the end, we ended up throwing half of it away due to those reasons.

Our first trip to Pizzacato was out of need not by choice. We were walking up Market street looking at menus trying to please eveyone in our party and not having any luck, we all compromised on Italian, not being every body's first choice but for settling out of near starvation. The food was fantastic, The appetizers are great combinations of foods I would'nt normally put together, the salads are unique and delicious. I like Italian based food, and I don't know how many times I have heard "Fresh" over used. The Mozzeralla was fresh , the greens were fresh. The service was over par. our waiter Joe brought back the art of waitering. any body can plonk food infront of you with a smile but Joe added flair , patience and an complete understanding of the menu both drink and food.He observed the table from afar to check if we needed anything as not to interupt the continuity of the conversation. I will return to Pizzicato every time I go through Philly and I will ask if Joe . It is far few and between the you get the perfect combination of fine food and great service.
