My best dining experience in Philadelphia so far. Everything was amazing. We ordered a gnocchi special and the chicken parmigiana (which also came with gnocchi). The food was DELICIOUS and the wait staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back!

Another superb meal at Gnocchi. All three of us had the specials and they were outstanding.
Wait service by Adeel is second to none....he's a pros-pro! Gnocchi is a don't miss restaurant.

Pro:
- Insanely delicious gnocchi. possibly the best I’ve ever had.
- Great job complementing the flavors within each dish
- byo
- $50 pp tasting menu
- Servers are cheerful and you feel like they genuinely want you to enjoy your meal

Cons:
- Extremely loud. This wasn’t a problem for our party, but if you’re going with people who can’t tolerate that or you want to have a serious conversation, it’s going to be problematic for you.
- They don’t advertise the tasting menu, you only find out about it in yelp reviews.
- This is the first and only time I have ever complained about this, and the only reason why I am really taking a star away, but the tasting menu is just too much food. We were a table of four. We ended up with 6 apps (many of which we got two plates of), a pasta dish for the table that was split into individual portions (yet the size of a pasta dish), our own (full-size) entrée, and two dessert (each). Unfortunately, 3/4 of us needed to have all but one to two bites of our entrées packed up to go home, because we were so full from the food leading up to it. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it kind of tainted the experience for us. By the time you got the pasta, you can’t even fully appreciate the perfect pillowy goodness of the gnocchi because you are so full and there’s really no chance that you’ll actually be able to enjoy the entrée while you’re there.

So yes, we did get a nice leftover bag. But at the same time, we left with our stomachs in pain from eating a gluttonous amount of food. While my chicken parmesan was delicious the next day, I’m sure it would’ve been even better that night.

If this place had less appetizers as part of the tasting menu, it would be a five-star spot. Have the table pick 3 apps, bump it down to $40-45pp, throw it on the menu, and this spot would be 5-star.

From the moment we walked in, to the moment we left, everything about this meal exceeded expectations. The generosity and humor from the staff made the delicious food even better. Adeel kept us laughing and made us feel like family. Will be back very soon!

The food was amazing. The gnocchi special was incredible. The dining area had a comfortable atmosphere and the bathroom was very clean and nicely set up. The staff was extremely friendly and personable (and funny), adding to the experience. I would definitely recommend dining at Gnocchi if you like to eat and eat well.

Excellent meal and wonderful atmosphere. Good value for quality. Staff was extremely courteous and attentive but almost to a fault. They were so concerned about good service that they actually interrupted the privacy of the dinner date that was the basis for the occasion. The manager and server came to the table literally every 3-5 minutes to ask if everything was OK or to fill the water glasses or to pour wine (which neither party wanted to drink any more), etc. These frequent overtures actually interrupted the flow of the conversation and privacy of the dinner parties. I sincerely appreciate their quest for excellent customer service which was duly noted but they overdid it and caused us not to fully enjoy the dinner date. Instead of the dinner parties focusing on each other, we had to focus on responding to the frequent questions and interruptions by the servers and Manager.

Went for dinner with several couples and had a fantastic night! Seated on time, warm and attentive waiter (with a welcomed sense of humor), and incredible food! Everything was delicious and nothing left behind. I especially appreciated their treatment of a large group, working through several bottles of wine, as some BYOs can tend to push large groups out or treat them with less attentiveness than a smaller table. Definitely would recommend to all! Seems like a sort of hidden gem outside the more commonly known center city dinner spots. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Our table was waiting when we arrived, and the friendly server promptly opened our wine. The server was very good at describing the evening’s specials, but due to some noise we had to ask him to repeat a few items. Appetizers (especially the mussels and the artichokes), mains (wonderful pasta) and desserts (tiramisu!) were spot-on and thoroughly enjoyed by all. One small complaint was the cold draft from repeated door openings. Luckily we were a few tables away, but wish they could add a small vestibule. Overall, definitely worth a return.

The homey feel at Gnocchi can't be beat, from the meals to the ambiance. The wait staff are very knowledgeable too. Only negatives are that we felt a bit rushed out after 90 minutes since it is a small restaurant and the next group was literally standing across from us waiting to be seated, and we didn't realize it was cash-only so we had to make an ATM run to pay the bill. It's also BYOB, so keep that in mind before heading out. Otherwise a great spot for authentic Italian food in a cozy setting.

I rarely write restaurant reviews, but we were truly blown away by Gnocchi!!! We had a burrata board and bread to start, ricotta gnocchi in vodka sauce and lamb shank for entrees and even though we were BURSTING at the seams- we had tiramisu for dessert. It was all so amazing and the staff was very accommodating and friendly.

Felt rushed and it would have been nice if they offered to pour the first glass of wine. We ordered an appetizer off of the specials menu that the waiter told us about we asked to wait a few minutes to order dinner cause we didn’t have a chance to look at the regular menu. The server came back three times with in ten minutes to get our order. This is why we make reservations just don’t like being rushed we were out of there in less than an hour.

I love Gnocchi so much. The food is always fresh and tastes amazing. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing that is slightly annoying is that they are cash only and if you forget, you have to leave the restaurant and go to a nearby bar to use an ATM.

Gnocchi is the go-to restaurant for my wife and I on our frequent visits to Philadelphia. Excellent food, moderate prices. Be aware that it is cash-only and BYOB, with no corkage fee.
