We visited after a long afternoon of walking with some tired children and it was worth it. Our waitress was great, she improvised with a couple of drops of grenadine and normal lemonade when our daughter asked for pink lemonade but they didn't have any. The food was amazing and the restaurant had a great atmosphere. We didn't feel rushed and thought the meal was real value for money. Would go back!

I gave the place a three star rating because everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves.

We were two adults and two grandchildren, age 9 and 11. We ordered a pizza for the kids and mussels and salads for the adults. The server said he would serve the pizza and the mussels first and then the salads.

Rolls were served first. Then sugary drinks arrived. The rolls were hot and since the pizza was not yet there, we allowed the kids each a roll.

The mussels arrived next. They were barely warm. Immediately after the mussels were served, both big salads arrived. The kids were still without pizza. By then they had finished their drinks and were asking for more. We stalled.

We asked another server to find ours and sent the mussels back. The pizza finally came. By then we had given in and allowed a second sugary drink. To their credit they only drank half.

The mussels returned. The heating was uneven but mostly a little hotter than warm. They were difficult to access on the crowded table. My wife ate about half, I stopped at two.

The server offered to talk to the manager. The check reflected no credit. When questioned, the charge for the mussels were removed.

So kids served last, they got bread and a second sugary drink, mussels were served cold, etc. I'd give the place two stars except we seem to be the exception.

The place has a great menu. Prices while not cheap were fair. The setting was nice with indoor and outdoor seating.

We won't go back. You might go and enjoy. As I said at the start, the crowd seemed to be having a good time.

I was disappointed especially after reading the good reviews here. The pasta with chicken I ordered were truly tasteless and very watery. The restaurant also had the AC set very low and we were freezing during the whole time. The plus side was that the atmosphere was pleasant and the service was extremely fast, we were in and out in less then 30 min, almost felt like a fast food...

Recommeneded by our hotel and it was a good recommendation. A busy pizza restaurant with a fairly standard menu and basic varietal wine choices. It does exactly what it says on the tin! No huge pretence just excellent food at a reasonable price.

We had a very good family dinner at this restaurant within the lovely area of Rittenhouse square.
Great pasta, fettuccini carbonara or spaghetti meatballs were perfectly cooked.
Glass of red wine and espresso were above average even if the choice of red wine was rather limited surprisingly.
All beers on draft were not available unfortunately the day of our dinner.
But overall a very good option for a lovely family dinner in Philly.
