My previous visit I ordered the veal marseilla and it was tasteless and small portions. My recent visit I ordered veal parm. The plate was full of spaghetti and a 6x6 inch square piece of not fresh veal that was 1/4" thick and over cooked. The manager took the meal away and offered nothing. I sat and watched my family...

Very mediocre restaurant, from the décor, to the menu, to the presentation, and quality. Too many other really good restaurants in the area to waste a dinner here.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night as a group of ten. Reservations were made ahead of time and confirmed by the restaurant on the day. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The homemade bread was to die for and the waiter kept refilling the basket. Our water glasses were continually refilled (which is something I look for in great service). Prices... More

My husband and i stopped by Ciniti's Saturday night for dinner because we were in South Philly. We haven't been there for quite a while. We used to go there before going to the Flyer's games, which was good then, and is still very good now. Service was quick, and the food still great! We each had a veal dish.... More

Criniti is one of the worst pizza parlors I have ever been to in South Philly. I mean, I was just there the other day, and it SUCKS! Me and my family were just there for a pizza, and it took forever just to get our drinks. My wife only ordered a water to drink. How long dos it take... More

We were looking forward to a real Italian dinner. We were disappointed in the food and service. When the waitress arrived she asked. "Do you want mushrooms?" Had no idea what she meant. Crinits offers a small plate of marinated mushrooms. It would have been nice if she included that information when she asked us. We had no idea what... More

Went here on a suggestion from a nurse at Methodist Hospital and were pleasantly surprised. It's in an old church and doesn't have the name of some of the more renowned Italian restaurants in south Philly. The food was delicious. I had a very nice veal marsala, the veal was very tender and the Marsala sauce was light and had... More

I hadn't been here in some time and I wasn't disappointed. I had the homemade cavatelli in vodka sauce. If you want some good Italian food in a relaxed setting at a decent price, go here. It's a converted church and it's close to Citizens Park too.

My second visit didn't disappoint! Delicious from start to finish. For one that is half Italian, I'm picky about going out for Italian food. They start off bringing you cooked mushrooms with warm bread. The Italian bread is excellent and I typically skip the bread. We were a party of six and the portions are not only really good, but...

We asked around for recommendations for Italian in Philadelphia. "You have to go to South Philly for the best Italian," everyone said. So we did. Criniti's was lovely (the building used to be a small neighborhood church) and the food was excellent. We were there early on a Saturday night in August, so it was not busy. The waiter was... More
