I took my boyfriend and his
parents here to celebrate his parent's birthday. The food was outstanding. We all got very different dishes but no one had any complaints. The ambiance is very nice and is perfect for special occasions or casual dinners."

We had a great dinner at Il
Cantuccio for a large party (14) on a Saturday night. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Even though it can probably be annoying to serve a large bachelorette party, our waiter was very friendly and the service was excellent. The food was delicious and byo helped to keep the cost down on an expensive weekend. Thanks!!"

went here with a few friends one
night on a whim. had a very nice time. food was very good and the place itself is nicely appointed. my only complaint was it was very hot inside. i expect the AC was working because it was cooler inside than outside, but not by much. may have to do with the kitchen being in the dining room, but whatever the cause, it was not very comfortable. i would definitely go back, but would probably not go back in the summer."

Our dining experience was not
great to say the least. The waiter seemed annoyed that we were asking questions about the menu and was not attentive at all throughout the evening. We were constantly tracking him down for water refills too! The food was okay. The pasta dishes lacked flavor; however, the Di Mar Risotto was pretty good. Probably wont' be back for a while...."

Went for the first time. Had saw
their ad in our neighborhood newspaper. Went on line and checked out menu. Looked good so we said lets go. We were happy we did. Four of us went, we all had something different. We all said how great the food was. Not going to tell you what we ate. You have to go and find out for yourself. You'll love it."

What a great OPENTABLE find this
was for mid day eating on a saturday, (very unusual time, most places close during 2 30 to 430, I was able to get/find places that were open in philadelphia neighborhoods using the reseravation opentable free service. Im happy i did, found another GO TO restaurant and a BYOB at that. Unbelievable great selection, delicious, reasonable BYOB"

Having been to Il Cantuccio
numerous times under the previous ownership, I was a bit hesitant when I saw the new menu and new owners when looking online. I made the reservation anyway and am glad that I did. We asked for an outside table when making the reservation on the OpenTable app, and were accommodated. It's only a few tables on the sidewalk - we were closer to the parked cars than to the restaurant, but that's part of the charm of city dining. The food was very good. The medium-rare flat iron steak was actually medium-rare. Thumbs up to the chef. The highlight food item was the side of cannellini beans w/Tuscan kale that we asked to have as an appetizer. They put it over perfectly grilled crostini and it was delicious!"

we came in late on saturday night
and il cantuccio exceeded all of our expectations. the staff was friendly and accommodating, even though we were quickly the last ones in the restaurant. the food was excellent - we had a special tomato and crab meat salad that was just perfect. great heirloom tomatoes. absolutely will be going back."

First visit back after the
ownership change and although the food has changed; in many ways for the better. Service was definitely improved; both our server and the manager were friendly and welcoming-which wasn't always the case in the past. Although still Italian for the most part, the new menu is more adventurous. The crab and heirloom tomato salad was bright and fresh, and the crb cake entree was obviously house-made with plenty of lump crab. Duck bolognese was terrific as well. It's BYOB but expect to spend more than a red gravy spot in the suburbs. Great neighborhood to have a nightcap afterwards."

A group of us happened upon this
place recently, and we had a wonderful time. From uncorking the first wine bottle to walking out while complimenting the chef, we were so impressed. The food and ambiance are all on point, and the price point is extremely reasonable. The steak and calimari are highly recommended!"

We returned to il Cantuccio after
a couple of years, and enjoyed an excellent dinner--beautifully prepared and thoughtfully presented. But the cheesecake was a standout--ricotta cheese, and not over-baked. Yum."

Small, friendly, homey atmosphere,
attentive service. Food was pleasant, at times even better. Had an early dinner so quiet as well."

We read that this restaurant had
just opened about 6 weeks ago and decided to give it a try as we were in the area. The menu was varied and everything sounded delicious. We loved the food, the server and the owner. We started with calamari, a romaine salad, then duck bolognese and short ribs with yummy mashed potatoes and finished with cannoli. The place is small with the kitchen area in the front corner. The decor is simple but charming. We would definitely go back."

My girlfriend and I went to Il
Cantuccio for dinner on my last night in town before heading back to school. The service was excellent and food delicious. There were a lot of things on the menu I wanted to try, but I went for the Mahi Mahi special and wasn't disappointed. The restaurant wasn't so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk, but was also just loud enough to where we didn't feel uncomfortable speaking intimately. Il Cantuccio is pretty unassuming from the outside, but I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place for a romantic dinner. A true Northern Liberties gem. It is also BYOB."
