    We were a party of eight, we saw outdoor, which was very pleasant. The noise level was very low, so it was great for conversation. The food was execute exquisite, and our server was very attentive.

    Delicious Italian food excellent service and a well appointed pleasant modern space. The appetizers, pizzas, and pasta were all great. I did not realize until getting there that it is the same ownership as Melograno in Center City, and it is very similar in many good ways. The space is open and comfortable. It’s a larger space so the tables are not right on top of one another which was really nice. we came a little early, 6:30 PM for dinner, and so many of the other tables were families with young children. That’s neither good nor bad, just likely reflect both the hour and the neighborhood. All in all and excellent dinner and look forward to coming back.

    We had an arugula, radicchio and fresh fig salad, the prosciutto & mushroom pinsa, cacio e peppe and the best tiramisu either of us have ever tasted. Liz took really great care of us and offer great advice on menu choices. Co-owner Rose came to our table nd treated these first timers to a rose water pana cotta. Fabulous. Can’t wait to return. Ellen Yin’s review of them in the Enquirer was spot on!

    Most underrated restaurant in Philly serving some of the best Italian dishes. Gnocchi in cream sauce was phenomenal. One of the best pizzas in town. Stop looking at Instagram for restaurant tips. Eat here.
