Serpico is a collaboration between James Beard award-winning chef Peter Serpico and restaurateur Stephen Starr. Located on South Street, the 60-seater will have a true neighborhood feel, with cozy booths, counter seating and a small bar at which the full menu will be available.

Serving dinner only, the cuisine is ingredient-driven offering a seasonally evolving menu of playful yet familiar takes on global fare. A small hand-picked list of food-friendly wines will perfectly complement the menu and a quality cocktail program will focus on boutique spirits.

Food and service were great! Took our 17 and 13 year old kids and suprisingly enjoyed it so much! Loved the modern vibe and open kitchen

Sat at the bar of the open kitchen by myself and was thoroughly entertained by the chefs. The “flower” drink cocktail that Sam recommended was so delicious! The staff was attentive and engaging and really helpful describing the unique items on the menu. The food is very creative and delicious and nothing you will ever make at home. I had a wonderful experience.

Delicious and inventive shared plates. Outstanding service. On the pricier side but perfect for date nights and other special nights out

Everything was phenomenal once we were seated. There was a slight issue since we arrived and were told there would be a booth available shortly. The booth was then given to another party and we were told that a booth/table wouldn’t be available for 30 minutes so we were sat st the Chef’s counter. This ended up being no problem for us in the end, and we enjoyed watching the kitchen work their magic.

We quickly forgot about that when we started eating and drinking since we loved everything that was put in front of us. The Porchetta entree was notably exceptional. We had ceviche special, beef tataki, and beet salad for starters. All great versions of each respective dish.

For dessert, the Rocky Road was nice, but it is extremely rich. Something like to cut/contrast the chocolate and marshmallow would be helpful.

Serpico is hands down one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. The meal was delicious and worth every penny. The dishes were visually interesting and flavorful. I would highly recommend the short rib or porchetta. It has an open kitchen concept, and my wife and I were lucky enough to sit right next to the kitchen. This provided free entertainment because we got to watch the chefs meticulously prepare every dish. I can't wait to go back and hope to make this my new special occasion spot.

Very unique menu with a great list of cocktails. Food was tasty but I felt like pricing was a little high for the portions.
