A word from Radice
Radice [ra-dee-chay,] ‘root’ in Italian, serves farm-fresh food that is cooked in Delaware Valley’s largest wood burning oven! 90” in diameter, it is one of the famous Renato ovens created especially for Radice. With 80% of the menu cooked in the oven, Radice offers food that is healthy, delicious and unique! Toto Schiavone once again introduces Philadelphians to his heritage of the true and simply Italian world of authentic village cooking.

    Service was very attentive. Restaurant was very clean and homey. Food was delicious. Had the radice salad, the cod special, the lasagnetta and the meatballs. We had glasses of the Pino Grigio and the Chianti. Both were very smooth. Desserts were wonderful. We had the blueberry special and the raspberry sorbet. We enjoyed the dining experience and will be going back.

    A charge for water??? This alone is why I am giving less stars and also will never return. Its a shame because I live in the area and I thought the food was very good. Its a nice place but I will never get over being charged for tap water. I will be telling all of my friends as well.

    I made my reservation spur-of-the-moment. It was definitely "off peak" hours - too late for lunch and too early for dinner - but the staff never missed a beat. Our food was excellent and the wait staff was accommodating and pleasant. There was no attempt to rush us out of the restaurant and we felt welcome. Very nice ambiance for my second, and hopefully, one of many, meals there.

    The food here is really amazing but the portions for the price don't add up. After living in the city for 5 years, it is difficult to find good restaurants in the suburbs. The restaurant has a great ambiance and very inviting but we were not impressed with the service. Our server was not that interested and was very casual. The food though tasted great and fresh. I would recommend going here for the food though you should be ready to spend.

    We LOVE Radice, the food and service are great. But the menu always exactly the same! Boring!! I so wish the would add new items seasonally. And the old Italian guy who may be the owner was effusively welcoming with familiar faces, and down right rude to us when we arrived a bit early. The gracious hostess offered us a table in the bar where we could get a drink and wait.

    Our waiter was not very friendly and seemed like he was annoyed at something. We had a reservation and had to wait extra time and when we waited for about 20 minutes until someone come over and asked if we would like to hear the specials. This is a very good restaurant but if you are feeling like you aren't being treated properly and you are spending a lot of money there are plenty of other choices around. I hadn't been here in a while and now I remember why.

    Had dinner with friends at Radice on Saturday and it was excellent. Had a drink at the bar first and the bartender was friendly and fast. The tables are spread ou nicely so that you aren't on top of the other diners and the decor is great. The meal was excellent. We ordered two pizzas, some small plates and two of the entree sized plates. We couldn't have been happier with our meal, we even had some left over pizza which was a great midnight snack. The owners stopped by to make sure everything was good during the meal. Would definitely reccomend Radice to anyone. The pizzas are so good I could definitely see myself stopping by for lunch or a couple of drinks and a pizza at the bar.

    Menu is varied with consistently wonderful dishes. Can go small plate to full portion. For sure not cheap, but it's really good and worth is for special occasions or you need a "special" place for dinner. Also, owner takes the time to explain preparation and ingrediants of some dishes as well as how some of the food preparation devices work.

    Dined on 4/12/2014
    I don't know what has happened to Radice but the service and the food was so very disappointing. Our friends overheard two servers loudly complaining at the front about a table of guests that had been there "too long". Our table settings were dirty, the server took forever just to approach our table and take our drink orders, and we had to ask for another round during dinner. The pork chops were both so overcooked and rubbery. We actually skipped dessert and went to the grocery store for takeout gelato because we didn't want to spend any more money here and just wanted to leave. I was so embarrassed in front of our friends after my boyfriend and I had suggested the restaurant and raved about our previous visits. We will not be back.

    Genuine Italian cuisine presented in a traditional yet fresh way. The portions don't try to overwhelm you with size, instead opting to overwhelm you with flavor. Wine list is just the right size and covers a wide spectrum. Great bar and bartenders. A real gem. The prices are reasonable and the menu structure is very flexible. I have become a regular.

Only con is seatings for two - tables are too close. Takes away some of the ambiance. Every thing else, fine . Will return.

    Gamberetti was delicious, and bronzino was good. However, the chicken was slightly overdone and the veal ribs were miss represented on the menu. The sardines were not fresh or oil cooked but were flat and dry. A small wine list (this is not a wine bar) which was fine, but the red wine was warm. Since we travelled about 40 minutes to get there, we will not come back. If we lived closer, we might try it again. Our server was delightful as were the bus boys and food runners.

    Our waiter translated the restaurant name to 'by the seat of your pants', but the restaurant was anything but. Waitstaff were quite tuned in. We never had to ask for a beverage to be refilled, napkins were folded and replaced unobtrusively, everything came out with perfect timing. The food was excellent, from the warm bread with olive oil with pesto to the entrees and desserts - all were well received. It was a nice find while in the area. I wish the weather had been nicer, as the huge covered patio looks lovely for warm weather dining. We'll have to come back.
