The food was fantastic!
We had Sal's meatballs (omg! Just like my grandmothers!) The caponata for appetizers. I had fettuccine with corn and peas sooo light! My sister had spicy bucatini. My husband the rib eye.
Pastas were fabulous and hubby's steak cooked perfectly!
My only issue is it is so loud in there you cannot have a conversation with your table. It's a shame because otherwise I would go all the time.

The vegetable selection is too limited and only comes fried. The food was heavy and the pasta cacio pepe chewy.
The octopus was very good but there again came with fried or heavily sautéed zucchini.

came here for restaurant week with a friend. the food was OUTSTANDING. one of the best Italian meals I've had outside of Italy. we each got a piece of the bruschetta. my friend got the crispy cauliflower, bucatini with jalapenos and almond pesto, and the tiramisu. I got the meatballs, cacio e pepe, and the olive oil cake. each course was better than the next, but the pasta was the absolute best! definitely worth the hour+ drive for me. would recommend a reservation!

Used to be one of my favorite spots. I raved about it. But since they had a lot of turnover in staff, the food doesn't have the same complexity and flavor profile that it used to. This post makes me really sad to write because I always felt that, location aside, the food here was excellent. I hope that the new staff find their way soon.

We visited during Restaurant week; I had dined there several times before and was impressed that the restaurant week dishes and portions were exactly as offered for full price at other times. The service was efficient but not intrusive; a bottle of complimentary sparkling water was refilled without asking as soon as noticed. The pacing of the courses (4) was just right. Highly recommended.

I met two girlfriends here for dinner about 6:30 on a Friday night. We had a reservation, our table was ready right away, and our server was awesome. He was friendly, really knew a ton about the food, made great wine recommendations to go with our meals. However my meal, which was ne of the specials that nice, was so salty as to be almost unedible. We also had the brussel sprouts which were super salty, and the appetizer was the meatballs which were tasty but again so salty. By about halfway through the meal I had that puckered mouth feeling you get when you eat too many salty potato chips and couldn't eat anything else. I wouldn't go back.

The restaurant was quiet and very welcoming. Staff from hostess to our great server, Liz, and her help, Denny, was excellent. Every course from appetizer to primo to secondi to dessert were phenomenal. And the Italian wine, a Primitivo, was so good, we have to find it in a liquor store to enjoy it again. We will be back and bring some friends to enjoy the great food , service and atmosphere of one of Philly's great small restaurant. Thank you to all who made our night so great.

My wife and I went there after it was recommended by a friend. We enjoyed every aspect of the experience. We had a drink at the bar first and then were seated at our table. Both experiences were pleasant. We chose a nice bottle of Italian wine that was recommended by the waitress and we were very pleased. It was affordable and much better than any other domestic wines in that price range. The pasta was homemade and delicious. Great music played in the background as well! We will be back.

My fiancé and I went with two of our closest friends and had an amazing time. The antipastas were delicious (bufala ricotta bruschetta & the meatballs). And the specials for the entree section were definitely unique (I had the baby scallops fettuccine with pesto). And to drink I had the “Alto” which was ginger liqueur, prosecco, and garnished with an orange peel and black cherry. Definitely will go back!
