    Best service of any restaurant I've ever been to. Pasta portions are small but fresh and fantastic (try the Gramigna!) and the veal shoulder with polenta were great with side of brussels sprouts.

    Slow-cooked meats are all the silkiness you need. There are veal cheeks with buttered beef marrow, blood-orange marmalade melting into them in a dance of tang and sweetness—the best I’ve ever had. Read more

    Ask for Will Knapp. He will guide you in the right direction. Food, drink, whatever you want he'll know what to do. Oh and get the Pappardelle it is so damn good.

    I've never been disappointed when ordering one of the specials. One of the best wine selections in the city and Andrew or Frank always hit the mark on a suggested pairing.

    Try the Garganelli with spring vegetables as a second along with a glass of the Langhe Nascetta. Wonderful. Not a false note.

    Rye Smash is the perfect pre-show drink

    Space is wonderful. Service superb and food top notch. One of if not the best dining experiences I've had in Philly. On par with Perla in NYC. It's not cheap for Philly but worth every penny. Go.

    The slow-cooked suckling pig is cured for 15 hours in salt, sugar and herbs, buried in pig fat, then slow-roasted for another 12. This piggy is worth every minute of the wait.

    No, Chris Painter’s elegant namesake restaurant, Il Pittore, isn’t cheap—but it’s a damn good way to spend your money. You’ll find yourself craving the duck agnolotti days after you eat it.

    Ask for Alex and then ask for the Alex special.

    $17 for a martini? Absolutely ridiculous. I won't have another one here.

    Boar was the best of the 4 pasta dishes we tried. Duck ragout was also tasty. The pasta in the papardelle & clam/broccoli rabe tasted bland by comparison.

    You + a friend/ladyfriend/gf/bf should take down the Biscetta for 2: a massive porterhouse w/honey-glazed turnips. They’re also furnishing a 200-bottle almost-entirely Italian wine list. Read more
