We very much enjoyed the night. We had reservations for four and intended to sit inside and asked if we could sit outside instead since it was a beautiful night out. The staff helped us to get seated outside and were very helpful without any issue. Food was amazing as well. We will definitely be back!

I had the Cheese Plate appetizer, which had several different kinds of cheese and was delicious followed by the Veal Primo. The veal was cooked perfectly and paper thin and the crabmeat, sauce and sun dried tomato was wonderful. For dessert I had the chocolate mousse. Exquisite.

Everything was great, service and food. My only “complaint “, we were seated directly across from the service entrance/exit. A lot of traffic by our table.

Wonderful service from what seemed was the entire restaurant. The food was absolutely exceptional. A bit pricey but worth every penny. An extensive wine and spirits menu. The dinner specials and normal menu provides lots of tasty and hard to choose options. This was our second visit and my only complaiint is why did we wait so long to return.

The halibut, bronzini, spinach salad, tiramisu, and Ricotta Cheese Cake were all fresh and properly put together. Never had a bad experience in the last three years my wife and I have been coming here. Our SVU crew also visited for a boys night out and were treated exceptionally well. No rush atmosphere as we enjoyed our quarterly reunion dinner. To was no exception as my wife and I enjoyed our dinner for two. Our server, Rich, and the rest of the staff, did a fantastic job.

Busy busy Saturday 6:00 and bar is packed. Bartender was very quick to get drinks but not very friendly. Rowdy crowd that finally left. Food was outstanding.
Escarole soup , wedge salad, lamb shank and chicken Sicilian...excellent is an understatement. We live in Delaware County drove up just for the food. Will definitely be back again. Oh, and the peppers that are brought complimentary.....hands down best I ever had😍

I recently ate at Macaroni's. I had the filet mignon special for dinner and the chocolate mousse for dessert. It was amazing and luckily it's in my neighborhood so I make it a point to go quite a few times during the year.

Macaroni’s can be described as a little, hidden, neighborhood gem. The atmosphere is quiet, dimly lit and subtly romantic. Although it was March and we did not eat outside, I have been there during the summer months and the outside seating is beautiful. The service is attentive but not over bearing and the food is always delicious. The eggplant stack and chicken pa are my favorite. The food portions are a good size and the chicken parm is more than enough food to share between two people.

The Lady I took on a date recommended it for 'Fine Dining" ! The atmosphere was on par. The waiter was passionate , quick and accommodating. I am an experience, flexible City foodie diner in NYC, Philadelphia, S.F. LA and Vegas. The ticket (pricing) was equivalent to the best in all those venues. However; The large Veal Chop ($45) was dry and garnished incongruously with a heavy Orzo? The Branzino was dry, very little sauce or gravy( I have had it many times in Italian
Fine Dining with a red sauce and vegetables like spinach or broccoli Rabe) but this was on a bed of dry, white rice? --A very vapid, tasteless experience. The appetizer eggplant stack was okay but it would have been very good but it was room temperature at the best... My $200 ticket didn't feel right even with some top shelf drinks!!! The chef and the rest of the creative team have to 'get in the game' with Fine Dining expectations. It's conception to delivery and this one definitely didn't work for me even in Northeast Philly!!!!

The food was overall pretty good. The penne vodka was great but the steak was just okay and we got the special with crabmeat but rarely any crabmeat was given. The bread with peppers and calamari was very good. My biggest complaint is the service as our waiter was not very friendly and rushed our meal. He kept trying to insist we order the meal with he appetizer and then when we got our food everything was rushed and before we knew it our check was placed on the table. This is not a great spot for an enjoyable occasion and ideal for business purposes to be in and out.

Being a South Philly Italian guy it's hard to find a good cozy yet lively quality Italian spot with the personalities I'm used to noq that I live in the North East. Could easily fit in with Collingswood restaurants and new hip spots around Center City...definately a great asset to the neighborhood.

After the server took out order he never came back to our table, it wasn’t even that busy. He didn’t check on our food or even bring us the bill, we had to ask the busy boy. Very disappointed.

3 couples went for this dinner and usually this is one of our favorite restaurants. The food was very good but service was off. They were very busy but they always are on a Saturday night. After ordering drinks they were all brought to us with the exception of 1,we had to remind the waiter about that. It happened a second time with another round of drinks. The timing of when our food came out was much slower this time than it usually is. My husband’s Halibut fish special was raw in the middle and had to be sent back. We will go back again because it’s in a great location and we like the food. Hoping that service gets back to the level we are used to experiencing there.

Just delicious food! The salad with manchego, figs, and cauliflower is outstanding, as are the mussels appetizer, and the scallops enetree. Next time, I want to try the chicken parm - I saw that go by several times - looks yummy! Don't miss the plated of roasted peppers with bread they serve when you first sit down - great!
