    BYO 🍷serves great pasta 🍝and grilled calamari. careful with timing as reservations aren't always honored, and it's cash-only 🤑. Skip cannoli cake for dessert; instead try tartufo 🍨or tiramisu 🍮.

    La Viola has the best white wine sauce of any Italian BYOB in the city, hands down.

    It is irresponsible for the owner to say that he cannot know identifying info about some customers. The associations of psychologists & psychiatrists have long held positions that it is not a choice.

    It's my favorite byob in Philly, best Italian in the city! Get any of their seafood pastas, they are all delicious. For vegetarians I would recommend their gnocchi. I've never had better gnocchi!!

    The chefs murdered an old Italian woman and captured her soul for the ability to make the tiramisu here.

    Great food, but not as good as Branzino. Terrible at honoring reservation times and really crammed inside. Try the one across the street for more space. Delicious tiramisu.

    Had an 8pm reservation for 5. By 9, I still hadn't been seated and the staff was ride when I asked when my table was ready. Heard food is great but never got to eat and don't plan on going back!

    Over all great little BYOB, excellent service and great food (I recommend the lobster ravioli). BRING CASH or deal with the ATM at the creepy bar across the st because they don't take cards.

    Reservations are obtainable, but you arent guaranteed a table. the food is great, but the place is noisy and small. be careful, there are 2 restuarant locations across the street from one another.

    If you reserve a table for 10:00 PM, show up an hour late. They might have your table ready then.
