    The specialty food shop has three fun papal-related items: The Epiphany Sandwich (available 9/18), pope cookies & bites inspired by the languages Pope Francis speaks (German, Italian & Spanish). Read more

    I always enjoy stopping in when I'm in center city. It reminds me of Dean & Deluca but is even better. Helpful staff and great selection. The shrimp salad is homemade and to die for!

    Get after-hours access to Di Bruno Bros. with a group. Gather up 8 friends and pay $100 bucks total for all the cheese, bread & antipasti you wish. Tastings available after the shop closes.

    A major destination for any Italian specialty food connoisseur and purveyor of hoagie fillings galore, Di Bruno Bros. makes a mean sandwich in its own right, with a high-quality olive-oil drizzle.

    Cheese lovers unite! This gourmet grocer corners the market on cheeses, cured meats, foodstuffs and prepared items to enjoy at home or in the bright second floor café.

    Some places might get a little too pretentious about their pizza without enough flavor to back it up. Of course Di Bruno's is not one of them. Try the pie with fig jam, prosciutto, and balsalmic. Read more

    Insanely friendly staff & amazing food! I got a little bit of everything & wasn't disappointed with a single purchase. The s'mores cupcake is great and try the eggplant parm.

    They are seemingly carrying less high end, rare, exceptional cheeses unfortunately (difficulty turning a profit on them?), but still a very good selection. The cheesemongers are generally helpful.

    Simply fantastic and a foodies' paradise. This is Philly's Dean&DeLuca. A must visit for any foodie in Philly area.

    This is the best spot to pick up food for a picnic in Rittenhouse Square. It's got a great selection of fine cheeses & meats - ask the counter for samples/suggestions. Get the San Benedetto peach tea.

    Amazing choices to refine and expand any palate. However, be forewarned: if you eat here and upstairs is closed, that means no bathroom access. This is a bit frustrating

    Be wary of the pre made hoagies. The bread suffers as the juice from the tomatoes make it soggy.
