                                                    Best restaurant in Philly consistently. I’ve been coming for years and it never disappoints. Great rotating menu and the incredible salted caramel budino as the must-have dessert.

                                                    Very small and very tight but outstanding food. We had the gnocchi, papas fritas, arancini and pappardelle. Gnocchi was the absolute favorite it melts in your mouth- potato’s, aranvini and parpp we’re amazing tho! Basil lemonade with tequila was great drink! Definitely recommend!!

                                                    Only my second time going since moving here but it's already my favorite neighborhood spot! The food and wine selection are terrific and the service is great. A little fast on serving dishes (like to take my time) but the staff is so friendly. Highly recommend.

                                                    The food was very good/excellent and was the star of the experience. The main problem with the restaurant is the quality of the seating. The chairs and the benches were too small which made eating uncomfortable despite the high quality of the menu.

                                                    It was way too loud and crowded - especially during this time where contagion is high. There was barely room for waitstaff to maneuver: I certainly couldn’t hear my conversation with my dining partner. C’mon. Stop being money grubbing and be reasonable with seating .

                                                    Everything was so good - we got the popular dishes and loved the whipped ricotta and the gnocchi. And of course the budino.

                                                    The margherita pizza was good....great sauce and cheese and particularly great crust. The funghi pizza would have been great....but for some reason, unbeknown to me, they throw canned peas on top of it.....but if you can pull of the peas of have them hold the peas....it would have been a 10. Beet salad was really good and the fish with cous cous was really terrific. The service was timely but we had a waiter that was a little abrupt. By way of example, my wife ordered a spicy margarita. The waiter told her that they don't serve those and gave a lengthy explanation about them being a mediterranean restaurant rather than simply saying "we don't have jalapenas."...weird. He was abrupt in other ways. I really liked the food. If you order the regular salad, again...tell them to "hold the peas." Worth a try...you must try the pizza if you go. It’s a solid 7 out of 10!

                                                    There for Sunday brunch although working. Not too crowded overall. Relatively small but we’ll prepared and presented menu. Highly recommend the shakshuka and the garlic fennel sausage.

                                                    Food and ambience were very good, and we enjoyed our waiter; but our experience was disrupted by delayed seating and poor customer service from the hostess. We arrived on time for a reservation, but waited about 30 minutes for our table. The first, younger hostess never apologized to us, and asked us twice if our party of 4 wanted to sit at the chef’s table/bar. We politely declined. When we inquired about our table about 15 minutes in, she suggested the bar table again as though our waiting was due to us not choosing that option. She was rude and unapologetic. A second, older hostess apologized and again offered the bar. As we continued to wait, one waitress rudely instructed us to stand single file against the wall rather than huddled, as though we were in the way, when of course we would have been glad to sit at our table. Once we were finally sat, we had a great experience. However, the second hostess approached us about 90 minutes in to inform us that we were approaching their 90 minute limit after our reservation time, sort of hurrying us up… Overall a good spot but probably won’t be back — too many places in Philly with better service.

                                                    First time. Very happy with the food and the service. Tables were a bit close and noise level was high. But would go back.
