Visited for the first time and won't be the last. Calamari Fest was advertised and delivered! Stuffed calamari was so tender and well seasoned. Ribs were tender and not over sauced. Getting hungry writing this! Staff was super friendly and attentive.

Ileana our bar tender welcomed us and made us feel so warm. Her welcome was sincere. Linda was our server. She made us feel like family and welcomed us graciously to her table. The Food was awesome. Reservations are a must, depending on the day of week. Price range is middle of the road.

Bomb Bomb is a wonderfully small south Phili gem. The place keeps you coming back time after time. Everything is fresh and prepared with care and you can taste it! You can tell that the seafood and meats are sourced somewhere special. Nothing is overlooked at this place and the staff is great.

Been hitting the Bomb Bomb since 2005 during Navy business trips. Never miss an opportunity for a great meal whenever I'm in Philly. Tripe cooked exactly as my Grandmother did in the 1960s and is a real treat for those who enjoy it in a red sauce over linguini. Freddy the chef is spectacular!!!

This was a restaurant I thought I would check out on the way to a soccer game at Lincoln Financial Field. Coming from NY, I had very little knowledge of South Philly or the Italian eateries in the area. I have to agree with prior posts that this restaurant is a bit inconspicuous and you could easily drive by it... More

Lay over night in Philly. Deep in the heart of South Philly, heard about this bar that serves Italian and bar b que. ordered Italian and sea food, no BBQ. Place is chaotic, service is rushed but super friendly. Place very small and frequented by locals. Good super good and prices are fair. If you can find it, go there.

I expected a bigger restruant when walking in but all the staff was very friendly. Our waitress was great and friendly. We tried the new root beer beer and it was good. Also had calimari as an appetizer which was really good. Our entrees weren't as good but we're decent. I thought it would be better given the reviews but... More

This is one of my favorite south philly restaurants. They have fantastic Italian dishes on the menu that you can never go wrong with. They also have seasonal seafood dishes that you can never go wrong with. If your in the mood for something different they also serve great ribs. The staff is fantastic with a family atmosphere.
