Our family realy enjoyed our meal. Chicken parm was done perfectly. The ravioli was amazing and so was the bread and ceaser salad. It appeared that everything was made in house. The staff is very warm and friendly.

Everything from appetizers to dessert (and the complimentary house-made limoncello) is superb and fresh. The service is friendly and efficient. Despite the fact that customers are packed in like sardines, the atmosphere is really pleasant. Somehow, it isn't too noisy. When compared to the really...More

Yes they accept credit cards. You can dress up or dress casually. I've gone to L'ongolo's wearing attire to go to the ball game as well as nicer casual dress clothes. Your choice! Welcome back to Philly! Enjoy!!
