Located on the corner of 22nd and Spruce, it’s a charming and easygoing 32-seat trattoria, whose name means “Little Darling” in Italian. The menu changes seasonally, but always features a variety of homemade pastas and classic Italian dishes made up of the freshest ingredients. Trattoria Carina has a small bar program, featuring Italian wines by the glass, seasonal beer options, and a selection of cocktails including Negronis and Aperol spritzes. Should guests choose to BYO, there is no corkage fee. Trattoria Carina is open seven days a week for dinner starting at 4:30 PM.

    What a wonderful meal! Every single dish was more delicious than the last. We really enjoyed our first visit. Hope, our server, was the epitome of top notch! She made for a delightful evening. Thanks, Dan!

    Thank you so much for a lovely dining experience. It was a lovely night. It made a profound impact on my experience in Philadelphia. As an Italian, I was so proud to share high quality meals from my culture with my partner and good friend. You have created something very special with this restaurant and I look forward to coming back.

    We had a reservation for 4 and arrived right on time but had to wait 20 minutes for our table. It was obvious that the staff had just messed up by seating a single person between 2 tables for 2. There was an apology from the hostess but nothing else. It was impossible to get our waitress even though she was standing right next to the table. The most attentive staff member was the person who we used to call a busboy. I understand that the restaurant was busy but they need to slow down and pay attention to their guests.

    The ceasar salad was excellent;fresh,cold, and crisp. The buratta was great. The Cacio e pepe was perfect and the pesto and pistachio pasta was very good. This little neighbor restaurant is one of the best in the city.
