Plate was served filled with pasta water that I was able to pour out into another dish. Overall left a bad taste in my mouth.

One of my favorite restaurants anywhere and I have eaten all over the world. The veal is the best ever! Service is over the top! Drinks always on point and one of the few places that serve peanut butter tortufo!

Great food!! Even though these are standard Italian entrees, they are prepared exceptionally. Fresh pasta, veal butchered and cooked to perfection and sauces were all interesting and flavorful. Our server was awesome (Ashley), and pacing was just right!

My wife and I had the 6:00 pm Friday night reservation. We liked the new interior and we both had delicious cocktails. Caesar salad with anchovies was very good. We split an order of the special….veal medallions in cream sauce over pasta. Excellent. Then split an order of the stuffed flounder. Also excellent. Finished with homemade blueberry crumb pie with vanilla ice cream.
Greg the waiter was very attentive and supported by another waiter and other staff.
Will definitely return often.
Check was quite reasonably.

Great birthday dinner celebration! Our veal dishes were fantastic. Service was very good. This place doesn’t have a fancy look when you pull up, but don’t be deceived. It is a real gem, tucked into the terrain of Fountain Hill.

This was an unassuming Italian restaurant that had the right combination of professional and friendly service, delicious food made to order (with several requests due to allergies), and sweet Italian old school flare (e.g., Italian music).

We decided to try this restaurant based on the very good Open Table reviews and the recommendation of a work colleague. Our appetizers and drinks were very good. A nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle at very reasonable prices. I ordered the Zuppa di Mare and my wife ordered the Lobster pasta dish. Both were excellent and reminded me of some of my old South Philly favorite restaurants. The food was excellent!!!
The service on the other hand, was very disappointing. Our waitress was very cold and inattentive. We essentially had to ask for almost every drink refill or other requests. She seemed to try to avoid eye contact as not to service the table. And although she was not outright rude or nasty, she did not make you feel welcome. At the end of the dinner, we had an Open Table Gift Reward that we assigned to use during our Open Table reservation. Not surprisingly, as soon as our server saw this, she said “I doubt we accept this but I’ll ask the boss.” We saw her show the boss the gift reward who shook her head “no” before even reading it. We explained that the value of this card was backed by Master Cars and the instructions on how to use were on the card. We asked to speak to the manager , who we believe was the chef’s wife. She clearly was not happy to speak with us but we asked her to just try to follow the instructions on the reward. She finally did and they were credited.
Despite the excellent food and wine at a reasonable price,eating out is just as much about the overall dining experience as the quality, quantity and value of the food. For this reason, we would have to think long and hard about returning to this restaurant.
