    Not as good as I expected. Food was good at best and service was incredibly slow considering it was 8:00 on a Wednesday night.

    Steak with fries was "all you can eat." Not bad, but I would have liked to have sampled the rest of the menu.

    The fresh mozzarella is out of this world. It comes in an olive oil float and makes a great meal in itself. This is quite simply the best mozzarella I've eaten.

    The croque madame is absolutely delish! I had to pause for 2 minutes after the first bite...then took another one...and confirmed that the first bite was THAT good!

    There is a wine and spirits store in the restaurant. The down side of that is you have to pay a hefty cork fee of $15

    If you've got an appetite, regular pizza won't be enough. Staff professional and courteous, not much activity before 8 pm (although it is a rainy weeknight and the phillies are playing home)

    Ask for Steve. Get the house specialty: steak frites. Enjoy a nice cut of meat with a great sauce, topped with tasty fries. The best part? It's endless... so worth it

    Jose Garces’s contribution to Philly’s sandwich legacy: the cubano clásico, roast pork and house-cured tasso with Gruyère, mustard, and pickles, plancha-pressed to give the cheese just the right ooze.
