Great nite with friends for pizza! Consistently delicious food and service. Always a good experience. The gluten-free pizza is pretty good too.

About the restaurant
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ PRIOR TO BOOKING:
Please understand that specific table preferences of choice are considered, but are not guaranteed. Due to limited seating, please be respectful of other diners by being mindful of the allotted dining time as indicated on OpenTable. Allotted times vary from 90 mins for 3 people or less - 2 hours for 4 people, 2.5 hours for 5 or more)

Looking for a unique and different ambiance that involves fun and style, and high-quality dishes, you found the right place! In the heart of the main line (between Bryn Mawr and Villanova) , an experience you would not find anywhere else, a true hidden gem with Italian influence. The Di Felice family immigrated and started cooking at this location nearly a half of a century ago!

The food at Exit 13 Gastrobar is always excellent. This evening I had the scallop appetizer special which consisted of 4 beautifully cooked scallops over perfectly prepared spinach. It was enough for my dinner. I paired it with a glass of the super tuscan wine which is a full bodied dry red wine. My husband had the fettuccine bolognese which was very tasty. Our server was attentive and knowledgable about all the menu items. Looking forward to our next visit.

About the restaurant
Please note that we will be closed on Thanksgiving, Thursday the 24th of November, 2022.

We are a progressive public house, and we believe in the idea of the "pub" mentality. Brittingham's creates a "home away from home" for our guest and staff alike.

**A note from the restaurant**
Outside seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

We take the same mantra on in the experience we plan to deliver to you! That being said we are taking it to the next level with food and drink that doesn't alienate, and great service and atmosphere that create a contemporary party! We are local, we are community, we are loyal and we are kind!

About the restaurant



The Black Cat Café is owned and run by PALS, a nonprofit animal rescue organization. Although every dime we make goes directly to the 600 homeless animals we save every year, we also know that our café succeeds because it is an awesome place to eat. Styled around the cafes of the South of France, our menu is eclectic and ever changing with many vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options in addition to our regular menu. We have won Best of the Main Line 3 times. Chef Judy Clemens puts out a breakfast, lunch and brunch that cannot be beat and all profits go to saving lives. And don’t miss our gift shop, featuring home goods and more featuring pets.

I've been meaning to visit for several years primarily to see the cats and kittens (and they are adorable! ), but the food was outstanding and the atmosphere perfect. I tried their homemade mushroom soup and quiche. Both delicious. Parking can be a little difficult but they do have a small dedicated lot if you get lucky. Don't let that stop you - it's worth the extra drive around the block. And you will leave seriously considering adopting or fostering.
