    foods was good ,but not superior.Prices somewhat high. Service WAS GOOD. My friend had soft shell crab that she said was very good. We shared fried squid appetizer that was only fair. I had pasta with Proscuito and shrimp,good but not great.

    Po Le Cucina was delightful. The food was beautifully prepared with many excellent specials of the evening. Service was friendly and timely. When we return, we need to remember that it is a BYOB restaurant. My husband had lobster bisque to start while I had figs with prosciutto and a balsamic reduction. Both were excellent. For entrees I had a generous filet mignon and my husband had seafood linguini. I took some of my entree home because I wanted creme brûlée. My husband enjoyed a delicious chocolate soufflé. Po Le Cucina provided us with a lovely anniversary dinner. We will return.

    It started out OK, but when the shrimp cocktail arrived, smelling like fish, I began to worry. We sent it back, replacing it with an above average lobster bisque (very nice). The chicken piccata was a bit dry, but OK. The pasta bolognaise was good. The Philadelphia area has a wonderful array of restaurants. There is a lot of competition. This was just OK. We would not go back.

    The resurant came recommended as a very good local BYOB so our friends decided to take a road trip to check it out. The food did not disappoint. The grilled figs wrap in prosciutto appitizer was the clear winner as an appitizer. The table ordered 3 veal chops all served a perfect medium rare. The whole Bronzino baked in salt,served de boned, was moist and flavorful. Save room for dessert. They are all "calorie worthy." Serves was attentive and cheerful.

    Very nice find. The seafood ravioli were excellent as was my wife's rigatoni pasta dish. There were many options and the next time we'll try one of the fish choices. A little pricey, but the quality overcame that one critical point.

    Food was above average. Some was incredible (grilled octopus), some a bit bland (duck ragu). service was slow - only two serving the whole dining room (completely booked), but extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful when able. It's definately the best restaurant I've been to in the area and will certainly visit again!

    My wife and I have dined at Po Le twice in the last 2 weeks and we think the food is outstanding. The Chef had been at a very upscale Italian restaurant in the same neighborhood as his current place so he has attracted many of his old patrons. We have recommended Po Le to many friends and we'll return many times.

    Had lunch at this BYOB. Plenty of variety on the menu and the specials were just as abundant. Grilled calamari was cooked to perfection, best I have eaten. Had soft shell crab on bed of fennel and again cooked perfectly. Friend said she enjoyed the chicken piccata just as much. Was full but wanted to get a look at the desserts - handmade down to the dough! Too many to try but will go back to taste every last one! Had the raspberry torte that was overloaded with plump, red, juicy raspberries. Crust was light and not too buttery tricking you into thinking you chose the healthy indulgence. Friend had the apple something -wish I could remember; it, too, was light, flaky, just enough sweetness and well complemented with gelato. Will return!!!
