This is probably our 7th or 8th time here but my first review. We keep coming back because we love the food and the atmosphere. It’s not a fancy place but it’s the place to go in South Philly for Italian cuisine.

We went here as a family because they had no wait time, which was awesome. I highly recommend the calzone! The mushrooms were cooked very well too. The flounder was pretty bland and the pasta was average, but the servers were really nice and helpful....More

The most bland Italian food I have ever had. The sauce is basically boiled tomatoes with no seasoning. The cream sauce had no taste and the bread was boring. This was recommended by someone as authentic Italian and it was terrible Avoid this place

Heard great things about this restaurant but I was disappointed. I has the mussels in white sauce. It was so very bland, I added the tomatoes and garlic from my bruscetta and some red pepper flakes that were on the table. It made it palatable....More
