Contemporary American | South Philly, Philadelphia

Adorable farmhouse chic ambiance in the middle of the Italian Market. Food was SUPERB- we shared the brussel sprouts and the endive salad to start, followed by the delicious pasta special, the short rib mushroom agnolotti (incredible flavor), and the homemade eggplant meatballs. We brought a few bottles of wine and had the perfect meal for a very reasonable BYO price! Our server Joe and the chef were great. They even turned down the heat when we asked. Went on a Thursday night and almost had the place to ourselves- go get yourselves a table and support this little gem! Lovely experience for a girls night out- we'll be back for date nights! More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
