This was a perfect place for date night with an amazing menu at great prices. He had the ravioli with shrimp which was a large portion, and I had the turkey burger that came with a side of caesar salad. The burger and bun were a little dry but it was still pretty good. We split the cheesesteak wontons which were the perfect appetizer. All in all, great service and food! More

A group of 6 of us went to Southgate for New Year's Eve dinner. I had been to Southgate several times before but mostly for happy hour or snacks. The whole experience was wonderful - the food was fantastic, the staff was accommodating, and we all had a really fun time. Will definitely be going to this neighborhood spot more frequently. More

We sampled 8 small/large plates between 3 of us. One diner is vegan and the waitress & kitchen were super accommodating and “veganized” the dishes they could by setting a portion on a separate plate. We ordered too much food, but everything we had was delicious. The only negative was that it was loud, due to a large group in the room. More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
