“Mixed review...”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

I have been to the Rittenhouse location as well as the South Street location. Rittenhouse definitely wins, although South Street has WAY more space (which is a plus). The service I had at South Street was AWFUL. Our server came to our table literally once. Someone else brought drinks out to us (which is fine), but she came over to take our order and was not friendly. We never saw her again. Never got refills. Never saw her again. It was weird. Rittenhouse was a good experience. Just a little more cramped.

“Great eggplant parm and ...”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Spaghetti and meatballs. The pizzas going by to other diners looked great, but they couldn't have been any better than the outrageously tasty eggplant parm. Companion liked her spaghetti too, but the eggplant was truly special. Reasonable prices for the neighborhood.

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place is always busy, but it's worth the wait. I think it is as good as any coal oven pizzeria in NYC.

“What a fabulous family style dinner”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We loved the food and the service. Will definitely visit again when in Philly. The manager was very in tuned with what was going on in the restaurant. He made sure it was flawless.
