Debora was our excellent waitress!! She listened to us as to not rushing our orders. I wanted one Sancerre that was not available, she recommended some other wines that I might like. When asked if the $75 Sancerre was available, it was and she was very attentive filling our glasses as we wanted them ( when empty not topping off which puts cold wine into warmer wine), giving us her recommendation for desert which was taken and wonderful. She made my friends visit very nice. Thanks! More

The food was absolutely divine, including dessert. It did get pretty loud, and we were even near the front of the restaurant (not in the thick of it). There was a cranky group next to us who didn’t seem to understand that great food takes time and complained to their server about the wait, but I didn’t think the wait was anything out of the ordinary given the quality of the meal. Be aware that you’re probably not going to have a quick, 30-min. dinner here—enjoy the experience! More

Food was so delicious. There were 4 of us and we went a little crazy and ordered 10 dishes which was more than enough and we took quite a bit home. The buttata was amazing!! We tried both tequila specialty drinks and they were great. The only negative was the noise level. It was difficult to hear across the table. More

My wife and 9 year daughter decided to try this out as we were visiting a family member at a nearby hospital. We used opentable for reservations and got there about 5 min early. They sat us right away in a comfy couch like table. The staff was extremely nice, we didn't experience any anxiety of having a 9 year old so it was very friendly in that aspects. The wine and food was fabulous as well as timely. Highly recommend this friendly and delicious experience More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
