This is still one of my favorite restaurants in Philly. The food never fails to astonish the palette. Wonderful seafood especially the bronzino. Homemade bread too which was delicious and warm & served with an exceptional Balsamic. They have a beautiful patio if you enjoy the outdoors. We certainly did. There is always something exciting going on here. The octupus was a special starter & it was a knockout. Try this place out you will enjoy the homemade ravioli too. Melt in your mouth & outstanding.

An Italian from Italy recommended this restaurant so we went. Vegetarian so cannot give any information on the meat dishes. However, one person in my party ordered fish and loved it. Ordered soup, salads, and pasta. Everything was excellent. The pasta (and its sauce) was notable as the best I've had ever from any restaurant. And the servers were very attentive and pleasant. Now one of my favorite restaurants in philly and my top Italian spot.

This trattoria is one of the best values in town. The food which can be described as southern italialian with a seafood tilt is excellent and always fresh. For appetizers try the grilled shrimp with asparagus and canellini beans or the smoked mozzarella with radicchio and shitake mushrooms. The best! They have grilled branzino or dover sole which are filed tableside and served with a delicate white wine sauce. What mastery! Also excellent is the grilled veal chop milanese and the veal saltimbocca. Their pastas are homemade and they have some unusual and tasty combinations like the penne amatriciana or the seafood ravioli. Special mention goes to the risotto with veal sausage. What a treat! Service is ellent, attentive, and friendly. They can't help it! The Vincenti brothers who own and run the place are the real thing from Puglia. Brother Roberto is also a painter and uses his own art to decorate the walls. You can't beat the price either. A good meal with appetizer, entree and dessert is in the $30 range. They also have an early bird menu until 6:30PM. Three courses for $25. Try it and you will find yourself coming back again and again! But don't go on Mondays when they are closed. You also can use credit cards now.
