I can’t believe the Divine Lorraine has been restored to its former glory. The staff was kind and attentive. The food was absolutely fantastic. Every bite was amazing. I still can’t decide if the braised lamb shank or the rabbit was better. The black truffle pasta was superb. The tuna carpaccio crudo was unique and lovely. The eggplant “meat”balls were amazing. Even the cannolis were the best ever. Thank you for a fine experience!

They down side was the food, it wasn’t bad, but for the price and for been on a magazine cover my expectations were pretty high, the menu was missing simple ingredients like potato(as I’ve order the nhoque and they were out off it), also out of some deserts, on my wife’s plate 2 clams were not open(it doesn’t sound like a big deal but the portions are small there was only 2 clams on the plate), over all it was a good food but not worth the price.

Split the D’Autunno salad, the Tagliatelle al Tarfuto, a NY Strip special and the Costoletto di Maiale, followed by the limone dessert. Portions are on the smaller side so might have added another pasta or appetizer if we were more hungry. Food was delicious and plated beautifully. Ambiance 👌🏼 Service is good but a bit slow so give yourself plenty of time if you’re dining before a show at The Met. Will definitely be back for more.

The restaurant was not full to capacity yet it seemed like our drinks and food took a very long time. (Especially the drinks. They were very good cocktails at least). The server we had only had 3 tables but seemed like she was frantic all evening. The food was hit or miss. Our table had 5 different things. The gnocchi dish with short rib was delicious. Would order it every single time. The winter caprese salad with burrata… also stunning and delicious. Fresh. Delicious balance of creamy burrata, citrus, and persimmon instead of tomato. Moving to the entrees is where things went downhill. The lamb shank was cooked wonderfully but it needed more sauce. It was served with cous cous and the dish ate dry. The truffle pasta was supposed to be be brown butter and sage based but it tasted simply like butter noodles you give to a 4 year old (the truffles on top were wonderful). And finally, the rabbit porchetta was creative and unique, but it was overwhelming rosemary flavored which took over the dish. Plus it didn’t come with any starch or veg aside from one mushroom. Overall, I would go back and try different things. Maybe it was an off night. But this experience didn’t live up to expectations.

Beautiful place , great server and amazing food. There’s only 2 things I think need attention 1. Our server sat us in a beautiful booth and even before we had water on our table, just immediately she started explaining the specials of the day and the dishes on the menu. We were just sitting snd I couldn’t pay attention fully so I mentioned to please let us set up with water and a cocktail so we could relax and pay complete attention to her, others than that I did notice some fruit flies on our table. Don’t know why… The food was to die for. It’s a great and interesting place to go. I just felt that the training should be more detailed oriented yo the needs of the patrons Other than that, great job

The restaurant was pretty empty because of vaccine mandates, no doubt. So it was quiet. The rabbit pasta (ZITI ALLA GENOVESE) and the duck secondi (PETTO D’ANATRA) were very delicious. The appetizer (CARPACCIO DI TONNO) was good, not great. I probably wouldn't order it again. The CANNOLI dessert was on point and the cocktails were great. Overall a very nice dinner.

We went on a Wednesday and had the entire restaurant to ourselves. While we had our vaccination cards/ID ready, we were never asked per the new city mandate. The food really was amazing, except… …we had fruit flies swarming our table all night (they said they had “just sprayed” but they were back) …the fritto misto antipasto didn’t have half the items listed on the menu, the batter was unflavored and fat too thick. By the end, the thick rich sauce made the fried pieces limp and soggy (not to mention the sardines they added were still bone-in) …the duck secondi was two pieces of duck (which was perfectly cooked, mind you) but NOT worth $43 (you should have received four pieces for that amount) While the restaurant was beautiful and the dishes each better than the last, the price and amount of food will not make us return customers.

I invited my friend for her recent 95th birthday and she was quite impressed with the ambience, service and of course the food. We both loved our choices. Cicala’s is a very beautiful restaurant. The menu is superb. The waitstaff is very attentive, and knowledgeable about the food preparation. We were greeted with complimentary champagne to celebrate our special occasion and our server remembered that it was to celebrate my friend’s birthday. It just added to the joyful evening. I will definitely return—for a third time.

It is the perfect place for a special occasion. We've already celebrated a number of moments here in a relatively short period of time. And booked a group dinner during the summer, and a holiday dinner party for later this month. If you are going to the Met or Temple or simply in Center City--perfect destination. And we've always found free parking on the street.

The venue is beautiful with white tablecloths, ornate chandeliers, and a large dining room. The noise level is quite low, so conversation is comfortable and easy. My Server Nicole was extremely helpful with menus selection. Her descriptions of dishes was comprehensive and displayed knowledge and understanding of the dishes. She was very attentive and efficient and helped make our meal a wonderful experience. The food is elegant and magnificently prepared. My friend and I shared two appetizers, two pasta dishes and one entree. This left us room for dessert. This restaurant is top notch. It is a fine dining experience and if you go plan totaketimeto savor and enjoy. I loved eating here and plan to return.

The menu is a creative and sumptuous take on traditional Southern Italian cuisine, full of surprises and rich with flavor. The cocktail menu is equally creative and artful — nothing ordinary here. The physical space is warm and elegant without feeling overbearing, and service is attentive and professional. Highly recommend this important culinary contributor to the Philadelphia restaurant scene.

Exceptional service, on the ball but not overly attentive. The Resturant was very noisy and the tables very close together. Our table did not have enough light it was a bit difficult to read the menu. I would come back!

We got drinks at the bar and when we ordered a second round, they never came. In addition to overall slow service at the table, the waitress was forgetful and defensive when following up on items previously requested. Didn’t bring menus after asking. Cleared the table of utensils while food was still on the table. After finishing our dinner, we informed her she can cancel the appetizers that never came. She said the kitchen is slow. If it was slow, how about you give us an update instead of getting defensive when we bring it up. Drinks ordered before entrees came, but arrived after entrees were finished. She asked if we wanted dessert and asked to see the menus. She never came back for our dessert order until the hostess had already checked on us, brought us the check, and returned it. So, in summary, good food and drinks, great hostess, terrible waitstaff.

Their wine list, by the glass and bottle, are a little steep. And pushing people towards ordering 3 courses, 4 if you count dessert, is a tad aggressive. But overall, a great spot that I would definitely go to again.
