What an amazing place to eat. We started with a margarita flatbread, and then I had the sweet potato ravioli. WOW Has to be one of the best restaurants in Philly. My friend had the bolognese spaghetti and was floored. Will go back!

The superfood salad is a must!. The salmon and sea scallops were out of this world with nice complimentary wines. On another night we tried the Bolognese pasta and it was good. Stand out desserts were the pecan torte and coconut tiramisu.

Our waiter was very condescending and practically ignored us our entire visit. I wanted to stiff him on the tip (I didn't because I'm a nice guy). The only redeeming quality was the food. It was delicious, but too pricey. Will not visit again.

We enjoyed the various pasta entrees with eggplant, meatballs and chicken. The gnocchi entree was very good. The chocolate cake with caramel and goat cheesecake with figs were delicious. The bottle of Pelligrino was pricey. The service was very good.

Good location at the Inn at Penn. Food and service were good, but nothing special. The menu is very limited. Selection of wines by the glass were small and pricey. But the actual list of wines by the bottle was more extensive. Priced at the...More

The food and wine were decent, but 15 dollars for a glass of wine was a little steep. Maybe they have better pricing during happy hour? Host and waitress were nice and service was fairly prompt.
