A "real red-sauce joint" in the "heart of the Italian Market" , this “family-oriented” Bella Vista "must" is the place for "abundant and satisfying" portions of "Southern Italian cooking without pretense" , just like "good ol' mama" used to make; the “intimate” interior with a "menu posted on the back wall" isn't exactly fancy, and the "attentive" servers have a “no-nonsense South Philly attitude" , "but that's actually part of the charm" ; P.S. cash only with ATM on-site.

Hands down the best Italian food in the area! This restaurant has great ambiance, friendly wait staff, and a simple elegance that makes it perfect for both your special occasion dinners or your family dining out night. Family owned and that rich heritage shows in the food and every other aspect of the place. Only thing to remember is that it is a cash only place but if you forget they have you covered with an ATM on site. A definite don't miss if you are in the Philly area!

Great gem in Philly. Went here based on recommendations and overall wasn't disappointed. It was good, basic, Italian food. The sauce was delicious. The parmigiana dishes were amazing. Not a lot of layers of flavor in the sauce but a good, basic sauce. Would return if I was in the area. Staff was all friendly. Lots of options on the menu. Everything is a la carte.
