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.

    It was fun to go with our own wine for a change. And we were in good company. Many took advantage of the no corkage fee BYOB evening. Thanks to Toto and Donna for that little gift. As always the food was excellent. I had the tuna special which was perfectly prepared and served.

    Radice has an intresting mix of small plates and larger entrees. My husband and I dined in different ways: he had an appetizer and entree and I had several small plates. Everything was wonderful and we each felt we had the dinner we most enjoyed. I appreciated the oppertunity to have sweetbreads and stuffed squash blossoms; he had a wonderful stuffed veal dish with a sauce to die for. We have also eaten lunch here and enjoyed this as well. Although the restaurant was quite busy, I was given a table in a quiet area (as requested). Since we recently moved closer to Radice, we will be visiting more often.

    We go in spurts with this place. Haven't been there in awhile since we had a very mediocre meal last New Years Eve. Sat outdoors this time, and the patio setting is lovely even though it overlooks the parking lot. Everyone said their food was good. Not great, but good. So I would say average was the general consensus. The dinner entrees included perch, veal and some a cioppinno type fish dish. Two things I found out; they charge for regular water as they have a filtration system, and you can bring your own wine but there is corking fee of $20. Our waitress took the water charge off when we questioned it. It's a sneaky charge and I hate that sort of thing. All in all it was a nice meal on a summers night on a pretty patio.

    As is always our experience, Radice delivers on very high quality food and excellent service. I have never had a better prepared serving of sword fish. Every aspect of Radice is always consistent which is the way a good restaurant should be.

    First time we had lunch at Radice and everything was just perfect. Food was excellent, service was outstanding (waiter was wonderful and made it even more fun). Will definitely return....soon. Two of my friend had the crab crepe and 3 of us had the pork sandwich and everyone agreed it was outstanding.

    You'd never guess it's in a strip mall! I asked a foodie pal to recommend a restaurant north of the city and this was his excellent recommendation. My friend & I thoroughly enjoyed every dish we had (though we shouldn't have allowed the server to upsell us - ignore the 3-4 dish recommendation at the top of the menu - two would've done me just fine. We didn't even touch the two pizzettas we ordered - took 'em home instead.) Pear martinis - YUM. And the decor is understated elegance - a wonderful, refreshing break from the horror that is chain restaurants. This was the perfect way to celebrate our 46th birthdays. :)

    Food, service and ambience were outstanding. It was kind of a reunion dinner with friends, and proved to be a relaxing and enjoyable night out. The menu is great because one can eat at many different price levels and enjoy excellent food. Just want a wood oven pizza, they have it. Maybe just some pasta, Radici has several and all excellently prepared. The full-sized plates, at good prices, are also worth the trip. Everything is fresh and all are artfully presented. Great place!

    Dined on 7/26/2014
    The menu is varied & inventive. The food was good to very good. Portions were generous, even the "small plates." Service was mediocre at best. Everything took longer than it should have. Three of the four main courses came out together, the fourth guest and two of the guests that ordered wine to accompany the main course were kept waiting another 5-10 minutes. I have to assume that our experience was a fluke and we just sat at an unlucky table. The menu was interesting enough and the food was well prepared so that I would be willing to try Radice again.

    My husband and I have been here several times and enjoy it each visit. The food choices are interesting and consistently good. The service is very attentive but not imposing. The outdoor dining space is attractive; however, the view (a parking lot) detracts from its ambience. Radice is certainly one of the best restaurants in our neighborhood and always a "go to" spot for special occasions.

    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.
