Outstanding service, and food stand outs included the swordfish and toasted almond w/oranges. Pasta very good, and advice on the wine was spot-on. If you cannot bear very loud engine noise, best to sit in the beautiful inside space.

The Chiacchiere alla Primavera was mouth-watering (think deconstructed cannoli, only more delicate), as was the sweet cream gelato. Always a pleasure to dine here!

And life is short - have something from the cocktail list. I had the Midnight in Alba. Actually, I had two. Quick walking distance to the Met for events. We were able to find street parking about a block away for an early reservation on a week night.

It’s beautiful decorated with comfortable seating with plenary of space between tables, so you feel like you have the whole place to yourself. The staff goes above and beyond for every person. They are kind, funny and attentive. The food was delicious, perfectly prepared and also pleasing to look at. The portion sizes are perfect. They have an excellent wine list and very knowledgeable sommelier. I highly recommend this wonderful gem and will return soon.

But this was a cut above the rest. The ambiance was wonderful and the service was outstanding. I mistakenly ordered a rose' wine instead of a rosato. Our server immediately brought over the right wine without a fuss. My husband ordered the gnocchi with the beef ragu. It was probably the best gnocchi we have ever had. I got the bake lasagna. The noodles were obviously home made. And the San Marzano sauce was delicious. My husband got the beef strip loin. It was cooked to perfection and delicious. We didn't have room for dessert but will definitely come back and try it on our next visit. Thumbs up!

Hat's off to our server, Nicole for not rushing us and for her really great service!! We had the antipasto, which is really something to behold, and then our dinner order was taken. We were with another couple and we all really appreciated the chance to dine, rather than be rushed through dinner. My partner and I shared the lasagna and the beef strip. Both were off the hook fantastic. We all shared the, "Little Pastry Shop" dessert. We highly recommend it. We needed up taking most of it home and it was great the next day. This is a really great restaurant!!!

The cocktails were creative and sublime, the starter charcuterie board was the best I’ve ever had with delicious salamis, pate, honeycomb, and tasty goat and sheep cheese plus so much more. The pasta dishes were perfection. The pork and rabbit dishes highly recommended. The shared desert course was yummy although we did wish we went with the gelato selection instead. The Sicilian red blend was the perfect accompaniment to the main courses. Beautiful ambiance and wonderful staff. A most enjoyable meal and would highly recommend!

Our server was knowledgable and accommodating; she was also very pleasant. Everyone raved about the bread and olive oil; the sourdough in particular. We all enjoyed our appetizers- the walnut, gorgonzola salad was the standout- light and a nice blend of taste. Two in our party had the sea bass entree and absolutely loved it. The other entrees were very good. We decided to order the mixed desserts chosen by the pastry chef for the table and each and every one was delicious. Perfect ending to a very nice meal at a comfortable pace and relaxing ambience.

I let them know we were celebrating a birthday and they initially seated us in the direct path of the service corridor. They reseated us in a nice banquette for two. Our server Nicole was excellent! She let us know that the bartender was new. The asparagus appetizer portion was rather skimpy and the octopus appetizer was lukewarm. A pasta dish had to be sent back to the kitchen because it too was lukewarm - and was mushy afterward. We ended up canceling the entrees. They were gracious with removing the pasta item from the bill and comped one round of drinks. Not the experience we had expected our last night in Philadelphia.

For an appetizer I have a grilled octopus which was done beautifully and for the entree a braised lamb shank which has been the biggest lamb shank I ever saw I believe. I will definitely go back. The dining room is beautiful as it is situated in the famous iconic Divine Lorraine hotel.

Otherwise an enjoyable time. I’d say it was a bit expensive for the experience we had overall. We’ve spent a similar amount at Vernick and had outstanding food.
