Delicious food and great atmosphere
Just returned from an anniversary weekend to Old City, Philly. Found reviews for this restaurant and thought it had what my wife and I liked. This place lived up to, and exceeded the posted reviews. We arrived 15 min early for res, so we took a seat at the bar. Very personable bartender. Our table was ready in short order. We were seated and tended to immediately. We started with a crab spread and toast. Delicious! Not too salty, very creamy, and the crab was fresh. My wife ordered scallops over risotto. Tender, mild scallops without any of the iodine taste evident in many scallop dishes. I had the veal saltimbocca. Tender filets with prosciutto, cheese and diced tomato. A wine demiglaze topped it off. Tasty, and properly balanced accompanied by whipped potatoes. A very well done dish. We enjoyed a side of broccoli rabe with red peppers. Fresh, vibrant, and not bitter. For dessert, which we took to go, we had a creamy cannoli, and said my wife, “the best tiramisu I’ve ever tasted.”
The staff were professional, courteous, and properly attentive.
Whenever we make a return trip to Philly, we will revisit this fine spot to sample more of the menu.
Great atmosphere and amazing food. Highly recommended for any special occasion or just date night.
The pasta with venison was delicious and the hangar steak was very tender and juicy. EXCELLENT, I think I will be back tomorrow.
It was great!
The food was amazing.
The waiter and every one was so nice.
They kept trying to make sure everything was alright.
This place was amazing. Low lighting, romantic setting, beautiful decor. Great for a date. Food is sensational
I have been to this restaurant numerous times over many years, never had a bad meal. Recently updated the menu, we the roasted beets and mussels as appetizers, the Bordetto and the Tagliatelle with truffles as our entrees all was very good. Great wine list with affordable prices.
Veal was peppery
Really nice setting inside quiet and warm.
