The Sena family tradition of culinary excellence dates back to early 1947 when Carlo “Papa” Sena began to cook in postwar Naples. The family carried this experience across the Atlantic and opened La Famiglia in 1976 in the shell of a Colonial tea warehouse. Today, La Famiglia stands as the finest Italian restaurant in Philadelphia and a major landmark on the city’s vibrant restaurant scene.

Our group went to La Famiglia after the theater (matinee). It was restaurant week and there was a special menu option. We were the first arrivals for dinner and were given a nice quiet table. Our server, Wilson, was excellent as was the food. 3 of us had the veal special. We will definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to go back soon.

Every bite was delicious. We will be back!

I went for restaurant week and got a bottle of wine. They have an impressive wine cellar and a wine specialist to help you. The food was all delicious both pasta and steak. They also accommodated the dessert for my nut allergy which was super nice!

Absolutely outstanding service. Old world traditional Italian food. Beautiful old world decor....sterling silver appointments, white tablecloths etc. Very nice to see! It was a restaurant week and they had a lovely menu.

Disappointment is an understatement. I had dinner here over 5 years ago and decided to change things up and try it again. The restaurant looks like it walked out of 1990. The food is mediocre and the menu is small. The wine menu is great if that's what you're looking for. There is no drink menu. The alcohol selection is awful. The first three drinks I asked for couldn't be made because they lacked the ingredients. As I was leaving I noticed a variety of Banker's Club products. I wasn't aware this was served outside of dive bars. The desert menu was missing every Italian desert you can imagine including tiramisu. This restaurant is ideal for the over 60 crowd with diminished taste buds that seeks privacy and a large wine list and misses the decor of the 90s.

Brought my family here for a great meal, 5 of us. Service was attentive, not pushy, and timed just right. Explained the menu items and the night's specials. The salt baked branzino, served table side was excellent. I highly recommend this place. Authentic Italian meals- no red sauce or gravy with spahghetti here!
