My husband and I had business in Philly and decided to try Dante and Luigi's because of its history and we felt like Italian food. The food was very good, the service attentive and the atmosphere was very nice. We shared the sautéed calamari as an appetizer, very different since usually the calamari are fried. Some of the calamari were... More

My husband and I were in Philly for a long weekend. We had read the reviews of Dante and Luigi and were not disappointed. Sauted calamari was excellent and so was the chicken siciliana. Service was attentive and the ambience of the place was really nice.

Amazing food and atmosphere. Paul was my waiter and he was great. Definitely a must for anyone wanting real Italian cuisine at a reasonable price.

The service is consistently excellent, the food always delicious and the ambiance subtle and relaxing. I love watching the mix of locals and visitors merge on this fine Italian dining establishment. Valet parking is a plus for the bridge crowd.

This restaurant was going down hill several years ago; revamped and was great and sadly this last visit was not as good as I expected. Decor and ambiance are still wonderful but the waiter was hovering and far to fast to remove plates and glasses - felt like I was being rushed and my group was the only group in... More

Old school Italian food with fresh made pasta! Nights special was fresh bow tie pasta with shrimp, bacon and prosciutto in a rose sauce...OMG! Pork chop stuffed with provolone and prosciutto, topped with mushroom demi glaze... YUM!

We have been going to Dante and Luigi's for over 30 years and always love to go back to experience the true feel of South Philly! We sat in the back room by the fireplace and enjoyed the amazing food and drinks. What a special restaurant.

People call it Old School. They are right on! Food was over the top. Service was excellent. 1% minus for no bar. Great service bar that had an extensive wine list and great cocktails but nothing before,

Nothing beats a great Italian meal in South Philly. The waitstaff are friendly and funny, referring to their dishes using exaggerated South Philly lingo (think 'gravy' and 'macaroni'). The expert preparation of al dente pasta served with generous hand-grated Parmesan is a winner. The veal dishes are superb, and the salads ample. Great wine list and decent cocktails, too! A...
