Le Virtu Cucina Abruzzese in Philadelphia is bringing the culinary tradition and philosophy of Abruzzo to the surrounding community. Abruzzo is Italy�s most unspoiled area with bold and unpretentious cuisine created by the local fishers and farmers and Le Virtu is recreating those delicacies with locally sourced meat and produce with rare artisanal ingredients being imported straight from Abruzzo.
A unique menu that pulls from sea and mountain sources provides savory combinations that will not disappoint. The pasta at Le Virtu is handmade in house and the meat is slow cooked to perfection. For example, the maccheroni alla mugnaia is a hand pulled single strand of pasta tossed in garlic and extra virgin olive oil with hot pepper and pecorino.

Enjoyable Experience and very accodamating.Good wine menu
Best chocolate tort I’ve ever had! Artichoke lasagna was amazing and my husband loved his lamb ragu. Definitely going back!
Friendly staff, great food and nice ambiance. Thank you.
Always delicious every single time. Friendly service and always something new and creative on the menu.
Fantastic Italian food. We did the tasting menu. The octopus app and the burrata app were the best I’ve had. My next course was a veal ragu/mushroom pasta — seriously amazing flavor. My main was the veal shank which was tender and perfect. Our server was AZ who did an excellent job explaining how the dishes were prepared. Manager, Frederick Cratil recommended an amazing wine. All in all it was a great experience. Next time I’m back in Philly, this place is #1 for dinner!
Love love love
Very limited menu here and very dainty portions. Music was loud
Wonderful meal. Can’t wait till summer. Outside patio looks amazing too!
Good meal, service, ambience. However, I was not blown away. I think overall it’s solid, but I can’t see how this ended up on some “Top 50” lists that are out there.
