If you want an ACTUAL cheesesteak and have it be something you'll want to eat and enjoy, come to Not Just Pizza. Avoid Gino's & Pat's. They're tourist traps that will kill your wallet and your tastebuds. Their french fries are OUT OF THIS WORLD...More

Got a buffalo chicken cheese steak, couldn't have tasted better. Loved each and every bite. Broccoli bites weren't half bad either. Seems like this is gonna end up being my new favorite weekly delivery place.

Four of us enjoyed dinner at Sonata just before Christmas. I have to agree with previous reviewers about the quality of the food and the excellent service. We all enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and dessert. It is a small restaurant and there was a large...More

We had a very nice meal at Sonata. Chef Mark is great at combining culinary ideas, and the food is both interesting and delicious. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable. Bring your own wine, though. The restaurant is tucked away on...More

Sonata is a brief cab ride from center city hotels, but well worth it. The restaurant is located in the hip Northern Liberties (NoLibs) neighborhood. The dining room is not large, maybe 15 tables, but they are nicely spaced so dinner conversation is possible without...More
