This is a very inviting place for dinner...comfortable, friendly and casual. And the food is first rate. Some of our group had an appetizer portion of pasta to start, while I had a delicious radicchio and apple salad. The entrees were excellent. No one rushed us and we had a very good time.

This was a very special meal with family. A lot of them are living very near to and along Passyunk Avenue. We had a Sunday afternoon early dinner on a perfect day in Philadelphia-The Eagles were beating The Vikings. Our family is culturally Italian from Abruzzi. This is the taste of our grandmother Angelina Pizzi that we treasure in our... More

Four of us went here after The Eagles home opener. We're glad we did. The service and food were excellent. They have valet parking, inside and outside seating, a bar and excellent menu choices. We were all pleased and would return.

Met some old friends for dinner. Parking can be difficult but they have valet. Waiter (forget his name) was super nice. Helpful with recommendations and very attentive. We tried some of the specials and some of the standard menu items. Everything was very good - hot, well presented and seasoned perfectly. Definitely will return.

My wife and I had been with friends about a year ago and loved it. We returned this past Friday might as a portion of the price of certain special dishes is going to support the victims of the recent earthquake in central Italy. It was a beautiful night, we sat out side and the dinner and wines recommended by... More

Le Virtu has been a special place for dinner for my husband and I on multiple occasions. We were excited to share it with family. I love the small cozy atmosphere of the restaurant and bar area. The food has always been stellar. Our party of 5 sat inside near the kitchen on a busy Saturday night. I'll start with... More

We were impressed with the attention to subtle flavors that was given in the development of each of the dishes and the insightful, thorough knowledge of our waitress. Wait staff is busy, so be prepared to wait a bit. Tuesday night you may BYO and enjoy a well stocked bar. Not realizing how large and charming (for a street in... More

Walked right in on a busy night and were graciously welcomed. This was the last bit of graciousness. The waiter came over who had to be either an owner or manager because his poor serving skills would warrant dismissal. We ordered a well overpriced bottle of wine which he corrected me on how I ordered it. Some wines were 4X... More

It was really hot while we were in Philly (98 and higher). We were hoping to eat in a super cooled space after spending the day outside sight-seeing (even brought a shawl incase it was too cool!) However, upon entering the restaurant it was apparent that their AC was not able to keep up with the double pressure of the... More
