    Pizza pop up is always a treat. By far the best pizza not only in Philly but maybe in the US. Lovely to sit on the patio on a Sunday afternoon and sip a Limoncello spritzer while enjoying pizzas with Sorrento lemons, fresh burrata, mortadella.....Yum

    Enjoyed our first pizza pop-up on the patio. Perfect summer day. Fantastic pizzas. Had a spritzer, few appetizers, around one pizza per person, and gelato.

    Portions were very small for the price, but the service was great. Was expecting it to be a bit more portion wise for the price. I think the lack of dress code made us think it was actually more casual than it really was.

    Went on sunday preshow. 545 PM reservation. Beautiful restaurant. comfortable seating . We havent been since pre Covid. Lets stat with food is delicious. Upon arrival, hostess asked if we were pre show and we said yes. She was very pleasant and took us to a wonderful half circle booth. Waiter comes by, confirms we are preshow. We order a cocktail. Waiter came back we ordered Burrata, a pasta and two Sea bass. Again food delicious!! Burrata arrives quickly. No cocktails. We are near bar nd I can see bartender has 5 people at bar and not making drinks. After we were almost finished the burrata, waiter came by. I asked for drinks again. He went to bartender who them picked up the slip that was sitting there and made drink. We are done burrata when drinks arrive. We then wait until 640 for the single pasta dish. Waiter came by after a very long wait and said there were "Kitchen issues". We waited longer and eventually the pasta came. Drink is long done. finish Pasta, wait another 30+ minutes, no waiter contact. He comes by and again says kitchen issues. We finally get entree. Knowing we were going to a show and it took over 1:45. considering the burrata came within minutes it took 1:30 to get a single pasta and two entrees. the table were fairly filled, staggered arrivals and a restaurant of this size can do much better. Phila restaurants have done a fantstic job of staffing and while we understood service issues in 2020 and 2021, by August 2022, most places have figured it out. No manager came by, no acknowledgment or apology. We go to shows at the Met from time to time. I will think twice about returning.

    Not a good experience. Food was average and sent entrees back as one was raw and the other was fishy. Service was average and overall not a Beard rated dining experience at all.

    The space is gorgeous, and the hostesses very nice. Other staff were either over attentive or under attentive, and they all seemed a little off? Weird vibes for sure. Our waitress never even said her name. Food was mediocre sort or cold, and service was insanely slow; and I’m generally really forgiving about that kind of thing because i realize that they were probably understaffed. However it took at least 50 minutes to get our entrees from when we ordered them and it wasn’t particularly crowded. Probably won’t be back.

    The food was outstanding! Our party of four split a couple antipasti dishes and several larger plates. It’s pricey but definitely worth it ($80 per with a couple glasses of wine).

    The perfect place to dine before a show at The Met. Great cocktails. We had the Polpette Di Melanzane and a tuna crudo appetizer. Two excellent pasta dishes -- the Tagliatelle al Limone and a pasta stuffed with squash blossom and ricotta. Then the Spigola Striata, a chargrilled striped bass that almost looked too artistic to eat. The service is polished. Fine Italian dining at it's best. So convenient for the show at the Met--free off-street parking right there and less than a five minute walk to the venue. The show ran late or we would've returned for a late night happy hour.

    The ambience, service and before and after dinner cocktails were excellent as were the wines selected. The homemade bread was cold but tasty, especially with the quality olive oil served. The special pizza appetizer crust and flavor were very good, but the center was soggy. The pasta course was excellent. The opinion of the sea bass entree was mixed. Both desserts were excellent. I expected the quality of the meal and portions to be better given the price of the meal.

    First of all, I want to thank our server who was excellent. She definitely deserves five stars. Friendly and knowledgeable. The pandemic has been extremely damaging to the restaurant industry so I want to be understanding of cost and quality. But! The food was not equal to the cost. I wish that it had been better and perhaps it has been in the past or will be in the future. I wish I could return with another couple with whom we dine monthy. But we will wait for another year or so and give it another since we do think it can be better than what we had. I wanted to like the dinner but will wait a year and perhaps try again. the Divine Hotel is worth visiting and seeing. Overall I'm glad that we spent my Father's Day there.

    We had such a lovely Father’s Day lunch. The quality of the ingredients they use really can’t be overstated, and chef uses them which such great results. No doubt that the food we had could be found at a high-quality local place in Italy. The server was very nice but somehow it took our appetizers a very long time to come out. They seemed to notice this as well, and brought us a complimentary dish. Very nice touch. We sat outside on the patio which actually wasn’t too noisy. Also not very scenic.

    The food and service at Cicala is always outstanding. It is a bit pricey. 4 people for lunch was $205 without the tip. It is also a bit loud on the patio because of Broad street. Next time we will sit inside. Luckily it was a beautiful day outside. But we will be back. The food and menu is wonderful.

    Possibly the worst restaurant experience we’ve ever had. Abominable service. Mistake after mistake with our orders. Bland , lackluster food. Nothing to compel us to every go back. Management acknowledged our poor treatment and offered us complimentary dessert and coffee . When we later reviewed the bill we were actually charged for everything.

    Got recommended this place by regular customer (I work at a natural wine roof top bar in London) And it did not disappoint! From the pre dinner cocktail to the pasta over to the main course and desert. Just beautiful and tasty. Super attentive staff too and I just wish this place wouldn't be miles away so I could visit more often
