Italian | South Philly, Philadelphia

I haven’t been in years and decided to do lunch. I had mussels in white sauce over linguini. There were a lot of mussels - about 30. Delicious! The linguini was cooked just right. My sister had grilled shrimp with red peppers. She liked the shrimp; the red peppers weren’t hot but regular temperature on a bed of greens. Before our meal we received a basket of crusty Italian bread with a dish of olive oil that had pieces of veggies. We didn’t have drinks because it was before 12pm and so we had ice teas (brewed just right). I wanted to see the dessert tray but sister wasn’t interested so I need to save it for next time. 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.
