    we were there right after restaurant week so it was quiet and that was to our liking as tables are close together my husband has a special item crab appetizer and it was too spicy hot and he generally likes spicy food. he had a steak that was special item and it was excellent I had duck ragu pasta and the pork chop both were well prepared and the chop was tender but both had not real flavor. the chop could have been better with a difference more flavorful sauce Desserts were ordinary Prices were center city but not on the high end we liked it was BYOB

    Everything was great for our restaurant week experience. The burrata appetizer was probably my favorite part. Service was great, food was great, price was great!

    We visited Melograno for restaurant week - which in the past, sometimes it can be hit or miss at restaurants in the city. Melograno however, was delicious! Plenty of options to choose from and everything was delicious. Loved the pasta. Servers and other staff were very attentive.

    This was our first time. We thought we would try it during restaurant week. It was wonderful and we will def go back. I had the Bucatini and it was excellent. The Tiramisu was to die for. It's a hidden gem and what our tablemates had was equally as wonderful. I would not miss the opportunity to dine at Melograno!

    Went for restaurant week but the menu online wasn’t the same as the menu in the restaurant so we ended up ordering a la carte. The octopus appetizer was good but not outstanding, very small portion. The pasta with the duck ragu was out of this world! Absolutely delicious. The lamb shank was wonderful as well. So tender and flavorful. Would definitely recommend! Only drawback is the noise level. Very loud place but worth it for the food!

    This was our first dinner at Melograno and took advantage of the Restaurant Week specials. The Restaurant Week options were great. We had the Polpo and the Insalata, the Tartufate and the crab granchio pasta, then ended with the creme caramel and tiramisu. Each one was delightful! The maitre d’ came to our table several times to check on us. That made up for a server who barely smiled and could have been more friendly and welcoming. The noise level was high. We had a good experience at Melograno.

    We tried their three-course Restaurant Week menu and really enjoyed the appetizer, main course and dessert. All of the ingredients were fresh and high quality. I particularly enjoyed the grilled octopus, which was simply dressed and the ideal texture. My husband thought that the meatballs were light and flavorful. We will come back again.

    Wonderful food and service, and very good value for Restaurant Week. the only negative is the noise level. It is bot so much that patrons are talking exceptionally loudly, but more the decor has no sound absorption.

    Melograno had a delightful ambience. We took advantage of Philadelphia Restaurant Week. Nicely appointed dining room, friendly staff and great food selection. The octopus appetizer was fabulous! Pork chop was extremely tender and tasty. The side of fries seemed incongruous though they were tasty. The Pappardelle with mushrooms was also a hit! Would we try it again, absolutely!
