We went with another couple on our recent trip to Philly. Food, service, atmosphere – all excellent. The baked meatballs appetizer was simply delicious. Loved the fresh bread & oil. It was so good we went back 2 nights later. Highly recommend!

Came here for dinner after our Escape Room adventure at Mission Escape Games down the block and this restaurant is great. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Great choice of apps and entree.

I went for drinks and appetizers. We had calamari and margarita pizza - they were both great! I had one of the best Martini's here. The waiter was so much fun with his italian/jersey attitude.

This was an excellent meal at a very reasonable price point. Each person had a different dish and all were very pleased with their meal.

We chose this restaurant because we were meeting friends who were visiting the Liberty Bell and it was an easy walk. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant was pretty much empty. The staff was friendly but the food was very disappointing. I'm surprised...More
