We had an excellent lunch! The service and ambiance were great and the food was fabulous. We had a large group and ordered a wide variety of items - each one was delicious and a generous portion.
We are going back next week!!

Parking is very easy here. The restaurant is brightly lit and clean. Food was very good, reasonably priced and our server very attentive. I have dined at the Passyunk location and food is great at both locations.

Dinner for four on a busy Saturday night. GPS sent us right by the place but they have a large sign attached to the front of the building. Parking lot is poorly lighted. Had a reservation and were seated immediately. Server was efficient and personable but salads and cheesesteak eggroll appetizer were the best part of the meal. Three of us had pizza and the fourth the salmon entrée. His entrée came out so quickly that he was almost finished before our pizzas arrived. The pizzas were a major disappointment. The meat on them was cold and left in slices and appeared to have been added after the pies were out of the oven. Biting the slice pulled all of the meat off the pie. Very unappetizing! Because of the service and ambiance, not a horrible experience but not worth the money.

Had mussels and a salad which were good. Surprisingly i found the pizza crust soft and a little doughy. That just might be my personal taste.

The service was great. Drinks came fast as soon as we ordered and reordered them. Waiter was very polite and attentive. We ordered a few apps the baked eggplant was good the salads were also good. We did not order entrees but probably should have because the three pizzas we ordered were undercooked and a bit doughy. The flavor was good however. But there are definitely better choices for brick or wood burning pizza places ..

I have literally never had a bad meal here. We hesitantly went out on valentine's day wondering if the "specialty menu" or even service would hold up and it did not disappoint! The specials were amazing service was great as always! I wouldn't really go anywhere else!!

Great Italian food. Service is that they bring out the food when ready instead of bringing the whole table's food together.

My husband and I visited on a Monday to take advantage of a 1000 point table. The restaurant was pretty empty but has great views of the water in cooper river park. The design/decor of the restaurant is very nice also. We had the artichoke appetizer, which was ok, but both really enjoyed our main meals. He had pasta with seafood and we were impressed with the amount of shellfish in the dish. I had the short rib ravioli. That was definitely an interesting twist compared to regular cheese ravioli and was very good. We'd recommend this restaurant and will definitely go back.

We had a wonderful time! The food and drinks were fantastic! Our complaint was the noise level and the speed of service. We loved our waitress, she did a wonderful job. But I guess she had a lot of tables as we saw her at the complete opposite end of our table serving others. The lapsed time between dinner and dessert and waiting for the check was a bit much. The noise level is what it is. But sadly we had very loud guests sitting next to us.
We highly recommend this restaurant. Overall you won’t be disappointed.

Great service!! The calamari was excellent. My husband enjoyed his soup and chicken Caesar salad. My salmon was okay, would have liked a little more flavor.

The food was mediocre at best this visit. Nothing was great, and I wouldn’t go back based on the food. Also there was a sharp piece of metal in my sisters pasta, we showed our waitress and she took it off the plate but nothing was done about it. At the very least, a manger should have came over and apologized. The salad dressing was very sour, and the banana bread had no flavor. A shame because this was a top choice for my family and I.

Heard great things about their pizza and finally got a chance to taste their pizza. The Pizza alla pala was wonderful, great flavors and texture! Make sure you save some room for the heavenly Amalfi Cake!

Modern finishes in greys and white, with black chairs and tables, and decor consists of pictures

there is no hands on kids’ menu or dessert menu, so our waitress had to list them aloud for us. I got the Gaaaahlic pie. The size is good enough for one person, but I took home left overs.

The server kept forgetting items ordered. We felt rushed while ordering, like she wasn’t paying attention to us. The restaurant was quite slow this evening, there was no need for us to feel rushed or that the server had something else to do. $12 for a Chocolate Pumpkin Martini and we could taste neither chocolate or pumpkin. 😐. We’ve been coming here for over 7 months, same menu and no specials, time for a change up. This was our first time leaving feeling disappointed
