Overall a very good experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly, my friend andSurprisingly, my friend and I were the sole diners in this waterfront Italian gem nestled on the Delaware River just north of Penn's Landing. The staff was friendly, attentive without an overbearing presence. The food was delightful from a delicious pasta fagiole to a light, tasty Dover sole filleted at tableside. My friend's lobster bisque was rich and creamy, her veal with crab excellent.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian must do in PhillyWe had a large group, and the service was outstanding.

Saturday we each had a chicken dish and both were excellent - abruzzi and parmesan. Even the bruschetta here is consistently good.
