The ambiance was quaint, the opera singing was beautiful. We were seated and my husband was constantly knocked into by other guests as well as staff. The food was incredible, portion sizes surprisingly small for Italian food. We split the spaghetti and the meatballs, had the minestrone soup, and finished with the warm chocolate cake. More

My third time here. Very nice, attractive room with plenty of space between tables, high ceiling, not noisy. All the food was excellent. It's a BYO so bring a bottle of whatever you like. Bill was $130 for four people with dessert. Not unreasonable. Our server was efficient and we didn't have to wait long for service. More

Love coming to The Cambridge for drinks - was even happier when it was featured on Restaurant Week! However, I feel that the menu was a tad skimpy. I’ve dined here before during regular business dinners, and the quality was so much better than the entree featured this week. I will be back, but next time may skip the “cheaper” option. More

Great food and great service! We had a group of 11 for a birthday dinner on New Year's Eve and everything was perfect from the food to the two waitresses opening all of our wine and taking great care of everyone. They dimmed the lights and brought out a slice of cake with a lit candle (I brought a candle in case) so that we could sing happy birthday and the whole restaurant joined in! The table was also set with New Years decorations like hats, headbands, horns, etc. that we loved! More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
