We started as a family owned business and still operate as one today. All of our recipes are created by Owner/Chef Salvatore Virgi and are inspired by his hometown of Naples, Italy. We serve authentic Italian cuisine with imported Italian goods (including the oven)! We are currently BYOB but expecting to serve a full bar soon!

    This was the worst food from the appetizer of octopus that was like eating shoe leather. I complained and she said I’ll let the chef know, I told her that I could only eat a small portion as she observed when she took the dish away. Then came the main course linguine and mussels I got about 12 little tiny over cooked mussels and either the sauce or the pasta was so salty I couldn’t eat it at all. When she took the plate she never asked if anything was wrong. The cake was out of a box and tasted like refrigerator. And by the way no brick oven pizza, that’s what we originally went for maybe that would have been good it they had it. My advice don’t waste your money. To many nice Italian restaurants in south Philly

    O Sole Mio Restaurant - PhiladelphiaResponded on July 1, 2022Sorry to hear about your experience. Our staff will do our best to make sure something like this never happens again!

Any time you have any issue with our menu or services we would appreciate a phone call or Email so that we may go about fixing the problem accordingly. We appreciate all of our customers and want to make this better so please call Sal 267-466-6721 Thank you for your patience.

    Food was pretty good but the waitress was terrible. She never came over and asked how our food was after it was delivered nor did she asked if we needed anything. One person in our party of 4 order a pasta dish with seafood and wasn’t brought a dish for shells. We had to get her attention and asked for a dish and for parmigiana cheese for another dish. She seemed like we were bothering her.

    As always the food was great. This time the service was lacking. I have always loved the “family” feeling they provide. This time, we were the only people there and it felt like they couldn’t be bothered. We had to get our own glasses, cheese, etc. our server never checked in with us to see if we needed anything. It was disappointing as this is our go to “date night” place. Probably will not return, sadly.

    We live outside of the city and took a chance on OSM on NYE bc it was In walking distance to the fireworks. It was fine. Definitely could be a neighborhood go-to for take out but not for a night out. Food was good. Service was good. There were five of us. None of our meals were remarkable one way or another. A big negative for me was the dining room. It was in the basement and to get there you have walk down steep steps and past the kitchen. That always turns me off. Also we were there early in the evening. It was clear they had just cleaned the bathrooms. The smell of chemicals was overwhelming. If I had somewhere else to go, I prob would have left. It turned out to be fine. I would not make a trip to go there again but I wouldn’t say it was bad either.

    We had a party of 7 and we loved this place ! Everyone had something different; veal, lasagna, steak, ravioli, carbonara, calamari and everything was just amazing . Our server was super friendly . The restaurant itself is a humble neighborhood setting so set your expectations in the right spot and enjoy the great food and service

    We were a party of five. Nearly all of our dishes were over-salted, and nothing stood out. This town has great Italian restaurants. At this price point, there are plenty of preferable options.

    Went on a family dinner because we heard how good the food was. It was truly a great meal! The pasta dishes and the appetizers were phenomenal! It's not a fancy place , but we weren't looking for anything more than delicious food and that is exactly what we got! The servers were so friendly and accommodating, which made it an even better experience. We will definitely be back!

    Food was average. Service was good Value was below average and then on top of that there was a surcharge that was not made known to us until we received the bill . The surcharge of 20% plus another 4% for using a credit card. Overall we ended up paying four dollar sign price for two dollar sign quality and a one dollar sign ambience. Don’t go to this restaurant. The prices we were charged on the check were 20% higher than the prices on the menu. We were also charged a 4% surcharge for using a credit card. None of this was told to us before we sat down until we received the bill.

    So hot in the restaurant. I wasn't told there was a downstairs dining room. Sat outside and bitten by mosquitoes, and the sun was in our faces the entire time. Informed the server, we do not eat pork, 9rdered the kid's meals. Kids' meals came out after we got ours, and we ordered about 20 minutes later. The pasta came with pork. One of the kids is from everyone's plate because the service was not up to par. Perhaps fix the AC so your staff can feel comfortable serving your food. I felt sorry for the team inside the restaurant.

    Our first time here--we will be back. Except for lack of parking nearby, a great spot. We just ordered specials, share for 2: App: rolled roasted red peppers around ricotta wit red sauce--tasty start Branzino with skin on--generous sharable delicious. Lamb chops on bricolli rabe & potatoes were also excellent. Busy night with short handed staff but they hustled & got everyone served. BYOB--highly recommended.

    Made reservation for V day. Was there on time, no one greeted us. Took someone else instead of us. They made us sit outside even though our reservation was for indoor. After 15 min of no waitress, we left. I can’t comment on food. V day was hectic as I see and there was no structure in restaurant for this special day.
