Barb and I loved the "new" menu. It leaves the diner with choices, or, to share with others, as we did. And so reasonably priced!

Thanks Maria, Maryann, and Taylor for a lovely time!

The major issue for August for us was that we were shocked to find out at the end of the evening that they were CASH ONLY! Fortunately one of us had cash on us. If you check on their website they quite clearly let you know that August is a BYOB, but there is no indication that it is cash only. This is an issue for me and perhaps you too.

Consistently stellar food. Fantastic ambience. Each detail from the sweet butter to the raw sugar cubes for the hot excellent coffee makes for a memorable meal. Although I usually get the same thing because it's so delicious, this time I chose a different entrée and was wowed. This place is a GEM

Great little Italian joint off the avenue. Feels like it caters to the neighborhood with its intimacy and attention to detail. Loved my fish and my wife loved her pasta dish. Would definitely come again for another birthday or date night.

With all the local Italian BYOs in South Philly, sometimes you just don't get to one for awhile. That was the case with August. But I'm glad we went. It's cozy, friendly, has a great menu and is reasonably priced for such good food. The service was excellent, as was the desert. I highly recommend it for a small group -- it's small so anymore than 6 and you might be pushing it.

Food is always delicious. I had the tuna pasta special and loved it. The crab and asparagus salad was yummy too. My husband loves the bolognese. Only objection is it is VERY noisy but you get used to it. The staff is lovely and the owners couldn't be nicer. They are warm and friendly and continue to make me feel so much at home. Always a very pleasant experience!

August is one of our favorite Philadelphia restaurants! It is really delicious Italian food served very professionally in a small room where you feel special. I had the pasta bolognese & my husband the Italian tuna pasta special. My kale & radicchio said was simple but perfect! The sautéed artichokes are my husband's favorite appetizer. Delicious homemade coconut pie. Really, really well made delicious fresh food. We love the food, the atmosphere & the chef owners.

We had been to August before but it had been about two years since our last visit because our daughter moved out of the neighborhood. When friends from Minneapolis asked us to meet for dinner in the city we thought this would be a great place to take them. They loved it!The food was great and the service impeccable.
The other advantage is that it is BYOB.

As for August- excellence on so many levels. Professional and friendly service. The beet salad and Caesar salad were wonderful . Each of us were thrilled with our entrees. Comfortable and pleasant ambiance. Good value. Would definitely return.

We've eaten at august on several occasions now, and have been pleasantly reminded each time what a great choice it is. It's truly a hidden gem- not on the hot-spot radar. The atmosphere feels intimate and alive, but without being too noisy or overwhelming. The menu consists of fantastic Italian pasta dishes, as well as some killer fish and steak options served with outstanding risotto. Two of the times we've gone, we brought our parents-- it's definitely appropriate for that, but also loved going on our own. When the weather is nice they have outdoor seating.
