I have been here dozens of times - mostly for dinner- and have never been disappointed. There are plenty of great BYOBs in Philly and this hidden treasure is one of the best.

Our family realy enjoyed our meal. Chicken parm was done perfectly. The ravioli was amazing and so was the bread and ceaser salad. It appeared that everything was made in house. The staff is very warm and friendly.

I always wondered whether this small neighborhood South Philly restaurant deserved to ranked so higher on trip advisor. I finally got a chance to go here...and it very much deserves all the accolades. Home cooking feel, not overly sophisticated, but still very well crafted food....More

Yes they accept credit cards. You can dress up or dress casually. I've gone to L'ongolo's wearing attire to go to the ball game as well as nicer casual dress clothes. Your choice! Welcome back to Philly! Enjoy!!
