I found the meal the other night not to be as good as from a previous experience I had the Sunday supper and I would say it was mediocre. There were a few pieces of pasta a tiny meatball which is dried out likewise the other piece of meat. I was hoping for the artichoke as done in Europe which is roasted with olive oil but this was fried and not up to par and in my opinion not as good. I was seated in that private little area as you first come to the top of the steps but if you sat in that back area it's like eating in one boisterous barracks!

Booth was nice but seats kept separating and uncomfortable. Service was over the top with numerous extra plates and silver wear that weren’t needed but friendly and quick. Food was interesting but everything just seemed like it was sitting under heat lamp before we got it and was congealed. Food was Still ok and pasta was fresh made but would not go back again. Gelato was awesome.

Just a mash. Bread and olive oil and the salad were the best parts of the dinner. Eggplant (Pasta Norma) was nothing special. Very small pieces of eggplant. Salad with pear was very tasty and presentation was pretty. All the pasta dishes lacked luster even though the pasta is homemade. Place has it down to a science, but all the dishes could show more attention and care and some pizzazz. Eggplant should have been big round pieces, and sauce more interesting. Too tomato pasty-ish.

While it is a possibility that I didn't make a choice it is highly unlikely that I didn't as I don't like Hi Top seating and I always am very, very careful to choose the type of seating that I want. So maybe you should call the restaurant to verify if you are as picky as I am with the type of seating you want. I did talk to the manager about it and I was not satisfied with his explanation or level of concern to my happiness as a customer.

Never a bad meal. Last night exceptional! From our wonderful server, Anastasia, to great pear salad, caponata with fresh mozzarella, perfect bronzino, and mussels. Topped off with gelato, of course. Can’t wait to come back.

Service was very good also. We sat outside and the space outside for 2 people is rather tiny, so it was a bit uncomfortable to move. Overall, very good experience

I kind of wish they were a bit more graceful about it. but i still enjoyed the staff and service regardless. this is just the only issue with my experience.

Piping hot, Al dente, creamy with a gastronomic bacon gelato. The dessert gelato was delicious as usual. Very good quality tea which is rare in Italian restaurants. My only complaint is the the wine pour is really stingy for the price. Looked like 4 ounces for almost 14$ and that was a less expensive glass. Not well chilled either. Filled maybe a fifth of a standard red wine glass. Waitress was very pleasant. It was a little chilly and she offered to move us if we were cold.

We decided to go to The Gran Caffe A’quila in Philadelphia at 1716 Chestnut Street. A wonderful authentic Italian restaurant. We were seated on time by a pleasant hostess. I requested a special table for two called the Romeo and Juliet table as it looks over a balcony. The table was prepared and ready for us. We were greeted by Our waitperson who was a lovely young woman whose name was Yvonne. She was smiling, happy and greeted us with perfect Italian!! She was warm, friendly , knowledgeable and very attentive. She took care of us like we were family. A real gem to be sure. We wanted for nothing. The food was paced nicely. Never felt rushed. The chef there really knows what he’s doing. Dish after dish served was superb both in taste and eye appeal with ample serving size. We ordered dessert, and when it was brought to the table, there were three lit candles and a beautiful hand written birthday wish on the plate. As if that wasn’t enough, Yvonne smiled with her eyes sparkling, and went on to sing happy birthday to my husband in Italian!! As if that wasn’t enough, at the very end she gave us each a complimentary glass of Limoncello. Swoon ! My husband was thrilled, and talked about it all the way home. It was a perfect day from start to finish, and I cannot thank the entire staff for making such a nice memory for us both.

Service was poor though, I had to ask for a fork 3 times while everyone else started eating. The way the server held the dishes as they came out of the kitchen contaminated all of the food by touching the bottom of the other dishes where his hands were. It grossed me out so I only ate the parts that hopefully didn’t touch the other dish and his hands. After the pandemic, they should know much better than to not notice this, especially at a nicer restaurant like this.
