Awesome choice for homemade Italian! Everything on the menu is wonderful! It is a bit loud... but just because everyone is chatting and having a good time!
This restaurant was AMAZING!!!! Food is priced just right (not too expensive) for the quality you get. My boyfriend and I got the calamari and brussel sprouts to start which were awesome, then the special tortellini of the night and the papardelle dish. Both had so much flavor! The waiter we had was tentative and knowledgeable about the dishes, definitely a must for a philly night out!
Wonderful BYOB with great service and food . The home made pasta.was delicious . We had the papardelle with short rib ragu , the crispy gnocchi and the butternut squash ravioli all we wonderful.
AMAZING food and service. Will definitely go back (and hopefully often!)
Wonderful personalized service from the owner. Best pasta We’ve had in a long time!
Great restaurant with beautiful ambiance! Waitress was very kind and attentive. Only negative was we were sent home with a different table’s leftovers due to the busy atmosphere.
I’ve been to this restaurant a few times now since it opened almost a year ago. Each time the food gets better. The short rib papardelle is delicious. Felt slightly rushed by the waitstaff but that may have been a onetime thing.
Ambrosia is a special place....great food, welcoming and competent staff, and incredibly delicious food...A BYOB that is a cut above others in the city. Delightful during warm months when you can eat outside and also pleasurable indoors..tho busy with all tables filled and space is small.
The noise level wasn’t a problem for us (table for 2)...8:00 PM on weeknight.
Staff is friendly, capable, and eager to please....chef is creating delicious dishes!
Ambrosia was fantastic. Food was great, service was impeccable. I wish I took photos because the food looked as great as it tasted.
Always the best quality and service. Totally reliable EVERY time.
food was excellent! love that it's byob. server was informative, efficient, personable and pleasant. in fact, all staff were very welcoming. we will go back again.
It was my first time but the service was excellent and so was the food! I'll be going back for sure.
Our third time and not disappointed! Excellent service, great food and exceptional company ... it all makes up for a wonderful evening. Will come back again!
the food and the service are worth coming back for.
I would recommend this spot to anybody.
The food was excellent—
The service was attentive and cordial—
Enjoyed being able to see (if I desired) the chef at work
The place is tucked in a quiet residential neighborhood or hood which added to the charm.
The waiter Noel was perfect. The beer carpaccio was to die for as well as the octopus
I waited quite a while for this reservation and met from friends from the suburbs...it was worth the wait...All delicious
Well prepared food from a committed chef and owner
Everything was perfect
Excellent brunch at Ambrosia today! You can see and taste the attention to detail. Everything was excellent and we can’t wait to come back! The duck was delicious and the butternut squash gnocchi. Avocado toast also perfect! It was good...all of it! The decor is very nice as well. Very cozy for one of Philly’s best neighborhoods
Go for the delicious food. The decor is simple casual but the food is exceptional!
Great meal. Everything was outstanding
We are repeat customers as the food there is excellent. They have put in ceiling panels to mitigate the noise, which was a problem in the past.
We had an absolutely amazing meal here. Went on a Thursday evening & it was busy, but that did not affect the food or service. Everything was delicious. The pasta was homemade & the best I have had in any Philadelphia restaurant, very light & fresh. I had the pappardelle with short ribs & it just melted in my mouth. For appetizers, we had the beet salad & the mussels & both were excellent. The bread was fresh & the accompanying dip was sooo good. My friend had the gnocchi & she said it was excellent (she eats homemade pasta all the time). The whole staff was very attentive. I will definitely be back!
Everything was superb! Every morsel, the device. We loved it.
The pasta was one of the best we’ve ever had !
Ambrosia is one of the very best, possibly the best-bar-none, of the new Italian restaurants springing up in central Philadelphia. Particularly a lovely addition to the Fitler Square neighborhood that has lost some of its stars in the past few years.
Loved everything here. This IS a neighborhood gem. Wish we had quaint places like this in cherry Hill with great service and delicious food.
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Delicious and consistently savory food, wonderful service
Great food, even better service!
Love this place!! It's our new go-to when we visit our son in University City- Delicious. Everthing tastes fresh and cooked to perfection!!
Delicious food. We lingered too long
Loved food, ambience & service
Everything was superb. From seating to service, Miguel was fabulous. I dined on the calamari and the Duck which were excellent choices. Our comped desserts courtesy of the manager was a great ending to a fabulous outing. We will certainly be back
Another awesome meal! I have been consistently impressed with Ambrosia as has everyone else I've sent there.
Highly recommend this wonderful neighborhood byob. Food is great, prices reasonable, good service and charming atmosphere. It’s a gem!
Excellent food, and a neighborhood gem!
