La Famiglia Ristorante
Fantastic dinner in a beautiful setting. Our waiter (Jay) was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable about wine. We really enjoyed the meal and the first class dining experience.
Perfect in every way. Superb wine list, food and service.
We came here after our son gave us a gift certificate. He knew we had our first date here in 1976 and wanted to surprise us. We loved it then and had great memories of it. Our service was excellent, as was all the food with one exception. I love scallops but mine were very salty and gritty as if they had not been cleaned from sand? My husband loved the veal. The bruschetta was delicious. Overall, a nice experience.
Always delicious food and great service. I love the beautiful old world atmosphere!!!!
We have been going here for 15 years and it's the best dining experience in the city.
Both the food and the service were outstanding. Recently my wife and I have gone to several good restaurants and the former (pre-pandemic) service staff has left and the owners had to hire service staff who were inexperienced. At La Famiglia the service staff is experienced and very good. The food and atmosphere were also outstanding.
La Famiglia met every one of our hopes for a special family dinner. The service was impeccable and old school, the food exceptional. definitely a great place for a special celebration.
This restaurant is always outstanding. We go there about four times a year. We have been going there since the 1980s. We love it.
We haven’t visited since the 1980’s and everything was as perfect now as it was then. Attentive, friendly staff and exceptional food.
My favorite restaurant for over 40 years. Great wine list and food.
Eccellente. Meglio che eccellente.
La Famiglia has the best food in Philadelphia hands down. The owner is a gentleman and is always there. With 15,000 bottles of wine in their cellar they have the biggest collection in the city. Treat yourself and go experience such a wonderful place!
Try the veal, it's the best in the city.
Fabulous experience. Best service I've had since I can remember. Branzino special, veal special and charcuterie were all amazing. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient - In this day and age I had forgotten what good service was supposed to be like.
We had a little family reunion and everything was PERFECT! Staff was extremely welcoming and they aimed to please. We will definitely return!
Staff was perfectly attentive, service was great, food was delicious and we ordered two different daily specials and were not disappointed. We didn't think we had room for dessert but after hearing the menu we couldn't resist and are glad we didn't! Would highly recommend!
The food was unbelievable and the service was impeccable. We had a super amazing experience and would come back again and try even more dishes!
Presentation. Service and Food. All were amazing
It was a lovely dinner.
Food and service were excellent.
The service the environment the wine and of course the food
It is the perfect place to go for a special night out
We always enjoy dining at La Famiglia. The entire staff always provides warm and friendly service.
My husband had the Veal Medallions and I had the Rolled Breast of Chicken. Both dishes were delicious although the outside of the rolled chicken was a little tough. For an appetizer I had Totino Di Melenzane - Layered Eggplant Slices. That dish was absolutely delicious. I could eat that as a main dish any day!
The wine list has wine to suit every budget.
It was a nice dinner. Perfect for a romantic meal in a lovely setting.
Love this restaurant. Pasta was great but Caesar Salad lacked flavor. We used to visit this restaurant all the time but due to the distance, we don't get there often. But we would go again in a heartbeat.
Soda machine was off and coke was flat.
But other than those minor things...... all 4 of us loved it.
It was both our first time visiting La Famiglia and we throughly enjoyed our experience , from the hostess to the bartender and our server , plus the food was marvelous . We will defiantly go back.
Went for Restaurant Week. Food was excellent, although the portions were a bit small compared to other Italian restaurants. Food was delicious and well presented. Would like to go back again for regular menu.
Loved the meal, as always! Service is always the best! Dessert was ok. Disappointing because they make such wonderful desserts!
Lived up to its reputation. Excellent wine list too!
The best food ever. My husband and I went to this location for a quick meal not expecting much of anything. But OMG! the food was delicious. If it was a finger linking, plate kicking place we sure would have done both. We plan to visit again by the end of the month.
Highly recommended. If you truly appreciate fine food and service, this is the place for you.
Great food and service was on point. Waiters in suits and white linnen tablecloths gives it a very upscale feel. Awesome wine list and cellar in the basement by the restrooms. Crab ravioli was fantastic .
We were excited for restaurant week but the food was not that tasty. Service was excellent!
The wait staff were very friendly! The food was delicious
Great dinner celebrating our anniversary! Food was terrific as was the service!
Undoubtedly the best Italian restaurant in Philadelphia by far
Best food in the city.
It was forty years since last dining at La Famiglia and was not disappointed in the total dining experience. I was very happy to see it included in the Philly Restaurant 2021 list. Food, Service and Ambiance were outstanding. I’ll return again soon!
The servers and hostess were amazing. The food was also very good.
Excellent service & food.
I was quite disappointed in our dining experience. Although their website showed extensive wine list, we were presented with a list of consisted on 1 each, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chianti. No producers were mentioned, nor vintage dating. There were two wine by the glass specials one Barolo and one Barbaresco. No producer, just glass and bottle price. To be fair, I had a glass of the Barolo which was quite delicious and worth the $20 a glass price. My octopus appetizer was fair. Not really noteworthy. My wife’s pesto and Burrata cheese app.was good. My entrée of bronzino was cooked nicely and filleted table side. The tableside service was nice, but the flavor was unexciting. My wife’s scallops were not cleaned properly, tough and overcooked. The desserts were obviously frozen out of a box.We were disappointed and are well aware that the Covid situation has changed things, and not always for the better. Not worth $240.
I've been going to la famiglia restaurant for probably 10 years or so. I believe it's one of the better Italian restaurants in the city ,old world class the staff knows you and you feel like you're returning to family. It's a great deal now going on also for restaurant week
