Service
 
A "couple of bottles" and you're set at these "white-tablecloth" Rittenhouse BYOs whose "delicious" Italian "classics" , "reasonable" prices and "instant" service appeal to "pre-theater" crowds and "date-nighters" , who all "pack in like sardines" ; Ovest (West) has a "pleasant" garden and accepts cards, while the bistro is cash only.

Did a King and Queen just walk in? We were treated as such here. And the TRUE Italian flavor just about blew me out of the water!

Wonderful Italian food, excellent and friendly service. They know how to serve the pre-theater/concert crowd efficiently without rushing. The food is creative and well-prepared.

Ordered takeout ($18 lobster ravioli and $7 house salad) and the food was mediocre at best. The best part of the meal was the bread and that's not saying much. For such an expensive entree, I expected better quality if not slightly bigger portions. Really dissapointing overall.
