    Trattoria Carina is a great spot for catching up with friends over a meal or date night. It's location in Fitler Square is prime. Do yourself a favor and sit outside on a nice summer night. You'll thank yourself later!

    Food was wonderful. Sitting outside was pleasant, with lots of people watching. Service was 2022-level adequate. Recommend getting or buying a bottle if you want more than one drink with your meal.

    Food was 10 out of 10. I brought out of town colleagues here for dinner and the food did not disappoint. The pasta was amazing and the chicken park was to die for. We also split meatballs, olives, and burrata and they were each outstanding. The portion size for the entrees was impressive and everything was so fresh and delicious. I would highly recommend. Great vibe, nice staff, AWESOME food. My colleagues were impressed and happy with their Philly dining experience here.

    The experience was wonderful from the beginning to end. Although I was there early, the host greeted me and kindly set up our table so I can wait inside. The staff were very thoughtful- from getting a cooler to chill the wine before the rest of the party arrives to getting me a drink while I wait. The food was spectacular from the starters to the dessert and the whole ambiance made the experience unforgettable. It’s a perfect, cute and laid back spot to catch up with friends surrounded by nice people, great food and drinks.

    Amazing place! Fitler Square/Rittenhouse is one of the most beautiful areas of the city, and Carina is wonderfully tucked away amongst brownstones and gorgeous architecture. Both food and drinks are outstanding, and I cannot recommend their brunch menu enough.
