We can always count on above average Italian fare at Phiily G's - we've been coming here since it was Gilardi's - and the food and service was as good as expected. The location of our table near the kitchen door was less than optimal and this particular experience was a bit disappointing because of the ambiance (or lack thereof).

Food is ok. However, service is extremely slow.

Bread wasn't served after our appetizer was finished. After we asked for bread, it took about 10 min for the waitress to serve it.

After we finished dinner, we asked for the wine menu, it then took the waitress another 10 min to get the wine menu. She was busy with a couple of other tables and we finally got the wine menu after we reminded her about it.

We have been there many times. The food was just fair this time and the service was aweful
We think the restaurant needs some refurbushing. It is looking very tired.

The service degraded as the evening went on. We had a similar experience the last time we were there. I found the menu pricey for the quality of the food. We did enjoy the porch setting.

Consistently delicious food. Calamari appetizer is a great value. We've never been disappointed at Philly G's.

Let me start with a positive comment. My wife's filet mignon dinner was very good. However, my bacala (sic) dinner was terrible. I ordered this dish with great anticipation because I had it before at Phily G's and it was the best codfish dinner I had ever had--and I've had it many times before in New England. The codfish dinner I had recently at Phily G's was the worst! The codfish was partially raw and the potatoes were undercooked. The whole dish looked like it was made days before and was just warmed up and served. The complimentary dessert really didn't take the edge off my disappointment with my dinner.

I have been here before and always enjoyed the food. This night however my husband complained the there was to much garlic in the Veal Piccata. I had the Seafood Diavola, some of the seafood was cook to perfection but the shrimp and lobster over cooked. We will give them another try because of past experiences
