We stopped here after a show at the Kimmel Center. So disappointed I didn't realize they had moved from Broad Street. This place is much smaller and cramped. Not a nice atmosphere at all and the bathroom what a disgrace. Only one stall for ladies...More

We almost didn't go to this restaurant because the reviews were just ok, but it has great Italian food. We are a family of four and we all had something different and everyone loved what they ordered.

We came early pre show. Reservation made through open table which registered us as a no show. Not enough staff. We had to ask for everything. Atmosphere lacking. Food not hot enough.
