I spent several summers in the dorms across the street from this hotel while completing an MFA at UARTS. Needless to say, food had to be within walking distance and so did a really good glass of vino. I landed here the first time as a convenience, but after that, it was by choice. It's small and caters mostly to a theater crowd, so tables might be difficult to find before curtain on theater nights, but by 8:00pm, you can have the place to yourself. The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed, quiet, with low lighting. They have a bar where you can sit and eat if a table isn't available. A perfect place to relax and converse. They have a really good kitchen with fresh pastas. The menu isn't extensive and that's a good thing--keep it simple and you'll do it better. I love their gnochi. The mista salata is large and lovely with a light dressing and super fresh greens. They have a nice wine list, not extensive but suits the food. And they have several nice reds by the glass. I now visit Philly several times a year and this is always at the top of my goto spots. We were just there for the MFA thesis show for this crop of graduates and the food was better than I remembered--two nights in a row! Prices are a bit high for most students, but perfect for the theater crowd...or me.
