By far the best classic Italian restaurant in the Delaware Valley Giuseppe Center is the ultimate host and it has been that way for the last 45 years
Very attentive service coupled with excellent food and wine. What’s not to like!
Good solid old school Italian restaurant.
Wonderful food. Classic room. Excellent service.
La Famiglia is one of the finest anywhere. The pasta is homemade and divine, the branzino heavenly and the atmosphere and professional service unmatched.
Date night, excellent food and experience. Noise level was low enough for good conversation and wedding planning.
Really great, from service to food. I think it has gotten even better than a few years earlier.
When we walked in the restaurant we were greeted with a very friendly host. He explained the specials was very attentive throughout the entire meal. The food was absolutely delicious every bite of it and beautifully presented. When we made the reservation, we checked out that it was an anniversary. When desert came, it had a lit candle and they wished us a happy anniversary. It was very special. Please go and eat at this restaurant you’ll have an amazing experience.
We love dining at La Famiglia! The entire experience is amazing. Staff is so polite and helpful. The food is cooked to perfection. You must eat here!
We have been going to this restaurant for years. We have never had a bad experience. Our last experience was in-line with our prior experiences. The food was exciting, the wine was great and my brother said his Martini was one of the best he was ever served. Great evening, great food. We love this restaurant.
Best Italian restaurant in Philadelphia! There is no place even close.
Food and service excellent as always! One of our favorite Philly dining spots! Missed the yummy breadsticks though - hope the new chef brings them back!
The food was exceptional. Authentic Italian. Perfect place for a romantic date.
Service is really exceptional! Lovely place for a special meal
Service is second to none. Extremely personable and make you feel at home. Always great with their menu suggestions as well
Food was excellent as usual. Service was good up until we finished dinner and then we waited a while for server to return to ask about dessert. We got dessert to go and we’re disappointed with very thin piece of cheesecake in box for $12. We will return but skip the dessert!
Friendly hosts, and servers, and great service. Highly recommended!
Was so nice to return to La Famiglia. Rarely go out on Valentine's Day but made an exception this year knowing the experience would be fantastic, even on a holiday. Food was it's usual high standards, service attentive but at our own pace. Great wine recommendation and so nice to have tall dinner candles lit on the table. A rare and welcome respite in the Covid world. Felt very safe throughout.
Great time as usual. Food was perfect, experience was the best.
Everything was delicious and the service was great 😊 Will definitely be back!
This was such a nice place. The staff was very friendly but not overbearing. The waiter was knowledgeable. The food was good but the tiramisu was out of this world. Best I've ever had.
Great special birthday dinner went well!!! Jesus is the boss a must for anyone coming out of town this place is incredible the venue since 1976 has prestige !! It’s vintage old school Philly
Once again, our experience here was excellent. This is without a doubt the greatest Italian restaurant in the city. The food is to die for, the service is always top-notch and the atmosphere is just perfect old-school Italian. I couldn't possibly recommend them more highly.
Very good food and the service was outstanding
We were not sure what we would find due to COVID but....the experience, the food, the staff were all exceptional. We have a great meal and great service.
Fantastic restaurant with exceptional service. Wine selection was amazing and food was great. We’ll be back soon!
This is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. We try to get there at least every other month. We have been going there since 1980. The food is great, the ambiance is calm, the wine list is probably the best in the city for Italian wine. Plan to spend an evening of relaxation. Do not skip the pasta, probably the best I have ever had. Don't be afraid of the wine list. Yes it is large but the waitstaff will help.
La Famiglia is one of the last “great” restaurants. I’ve been dining here since I was a child and the pride in service, food, presentation is still evident today. Relatively few restaurants know how to make their guests feel as if they are the most important guests of the evening. La Famiglia does it sincerely. It is like dining with beloved friends. The food, as always, is exquisite. Fresh, simple but elegant, you can’t go wrong with any item on the menu. Ask to see their wine book.if you can’t find a wine to enjoy, it doesn’t exists. An elegant, highly enjoyable dining experience.treat yourself and dine there as soon as possible.
Wonderful night. Gaetano was awesome. Food delicious. We will be back!
Best Italian restaurant in Philadelphia
Incredible meal. What a truly wonderful dining experience. This is an absolute must visit if you love traditional Italian cuisine. The service is impeccable and on this particular visit the owner made us feel as though we were actually eating in his home.
By far the best Italian restaurant in the city always has been my favorite place to go in all of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas
Food was decent but extremely overpriced for what we got.
Understanding Covid has taken a toll could explain the smaller portions but to get 2 scallops for almost $40 is too much. I don’t like writing bad reviews but had to leave honest feedback here
Wonderful, old world. One of the last special places around.
I am never disappointed in the food or service. Everyone is professional yet friendly.
My favorite restaurant...
Service was good but portions were small and not enough variety on restaurant week menu. Food was either under or over seasoned.
Great food, great service, extensive wine list with really cool wine cellar. We will definitely return!
Decor is amazing; food and portions were definitely exaggerated. Prior to ordering the salmon, i inquired on portion; the waitress was misleading. Also, the lack of variety in side options wasn’t impressive.
