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.

  • What a Wonderful Evening!

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    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!

  • Rolling the Dice at Radice
    Sams1stUncle
    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.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    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.
