Delighted at the unapologetic old-schoolness of this Italian-American neighborhood joint. Red sauce was excellent and plentiful, pizza was fantastic. They don't make them like this anymore, and that's a shame.

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.

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

I haven't been there in a long time but the food and service was still good. The personal calzone was tasty and more than enough for one person.
