Great food.great service.Best Italian restaurant in Philly
Excellent food and ambience. love this place! Ge the veal chop!
Special, wonderful night out at La Famiglia. Can’t wait to go back!
Our first visit here and it was very memorable - very good food and excellent service. It is in a nice setting in old city off the crowded streets and is romantic or festive, whichever you request. It was full on a Thursday night so they clearly have a following. We had a great experience. Our cocktails were outstanding. My husband had penne ala familigia which was good, and I had the homemade pesto cavatelli with burrata which was excellent if you like pesto. The smoked mozzarella appetizer was unique but we wouldn’t order that again - it’s basically a big slice of cheese with mushrooms and a delicious drizzle, but I would try another app. We were surprised with a delicious custard for dessert for our anniversary and again we can’t say enough about the setting and the staff. All were charming and professional. Grazie!!
Great food and attentive service. You get what you pay for and we certainly felt we did. We would highly recommend La Famiglia.
We had the best dinners. Caesar’s salads and calamari. We ordered veal parmigiana and bronzino. Absolutely delicious. We also ordered penne pasta. Everything was wonderful. Great service and fabulous setting outdoors. We even had music. Great evening.
Thank you La Famiglia.
Three of us, one celebrating a Birthday spent an absolutely delightful evening here, feasting on four courses The evening was made especially memorable by the charming Owner who sat with us for a while.. Every single item we ordered and even more--the restaurant provided a delicious Birthday desert-- was top of the line I have dined here for over 25 years, and am a member of an exclusive Italian Gourmet Society that arranges several Feasts here annually--and I can honestly tell you that every aspect of dining here--the quality ingredients, the excellent servers, the elegant decor is perfection.. I dine out every night at fine restaurants in Center City, and this is absolutely among my favorites..
La Famiglia is always on point and never disappoints
Great food and great service
Second time I have eaten at this restaurant, the first was 5 years ago. I brought my family to Philadelphia and wanted them to try it as my first visit was excellent. La Familigia did not disappoint. The food was excellent and service was great.
Truly an incredible experience, we loved it!
What a wonderful dining experience!
The food was super delicious, the service was excellent
and the ambiance was delightful. I can’t wait to eat here again.
Birthday celebration was fabulous. Fantastic food and service
This place never disappoints!! Always fabulous and never rushed.
Great restaurant. Staff was friendly and efficient. Beautiful inside, food was served quickly and still hot. Everything tasted fresh and home made. Portions were just right. Will definitely be back.
Authentic Italian cuisine with superb service and a tour of their wine cellar.
Food, wait staff, ambiente are 5 star...Sooo happy they survived the pandemic and have matained their excelent service !
We have always loved this restaurant. Have been coming here for many years, although since we’ve moved out of the city ( not far, Bucks County ), coupled with Covid it’s been a while. We love the old world elegance that La Familia offers, and we were so happy to see that hasn’t changed. Sadly, not many restaurants like this left.
A perfect way to end a visit to the city after a day at the art museum etc.
Hoping La Familia will continue to remain an institution in the city of Philadelphia !
Be back soon.
By the way, the filet, pasta, and especially the octopus were exceptional
There is not enough room on this page to say how great this restaurant is.
Six of us dined and six of us all agreed there is nothing better in Old City.
Maybe the whole city.
After dinner while outside saying our good byes I was trying to get people to go in.
Actually got two couples to try it.
I am sure they are glad I said something to them.
Going again soon with another group and I can't wait.
Excellent food and service
Always a great meal! The Nostalgia menu is an outstanding value! Service was impeccable as always!
Great Italian style food with courteous service at a reasonable price. We plan to go more often.
Service and food were excellent, as always! A Philadelphia gem.
The staff was great & very accommodating
Just wonderful! Quiet, relaxed, refined service. This place is a gem.
Birthday . Everything was exquisite. The menu from years Go was really nice.
Best Italiymeal in elegant beautiful surroundings!
Service was absolutely the worst, EVER! Waiting time till order was taken, wait times
in between courses and drinks, was absolutely unexpectable.
We were extremely disappointed!
Amazing food! So good! Well remember this meal for a long time
Elegant atmosphere, great food presentation, good menu selections, and great management - that describes La Famiglia Ristorante.
There is a temporary outside eating area set up option.
They have adjusted to covid protocols well.
Each table has a container of hand sanitizer on it. Their famous dessert cart is in storage; their fabulous desserts
are each served by order.
The wine cellar is comprehensive and expansive. Even wine by the glass is a great option due to the choices.
One of the best restaurants in the city. The Sena Family knows how to run a first-class place to dine.
Amazing food, wine and service!
Outstanding food in a beautiful setting with good service.
Excellent meal with terrific flavors.
Great food, service and experience
The Nostalgia menu will have you in disbelief at how cheap the prices are. The quality is 100% still there. The drinks are great. The service is unmatched. There is no other place like it.
La Famiglia is a bastion of the elegant, personal, quality dining experience in Philadelphia. Many fine restaurants have come and gone since this establishment first opened its doors. The Sena family has stayed the course, and La Famiglia remains, alone in a crowd.
This is our favorite restaurant in Philly and has been for a long time. Excellent food, exemplary service and an elegant atmosphere.
Best restaurant in Philadelphia - Best Italian. Fabulous wine cellar.
Yet another excellent evening at La Famiglia. The service was professional and the food excellent. My wife and I love going there. This time my daughter and her husband joined us. They had a great time also. This is not a restaurant for a quick bite. We typically expect to spend several hours, dinning leisurely. The wine list is one of the best in the city.
The penne pasta was delicious.
La Famiglia Ristorante was a class act. The wait staff was very professional, and responsive. We ordered a wide variety of food among the six of us. Everyone was very pleased with their food. The restaurant is expensive but it lived up to its reputation as the best Italian restaurant in Philly.
