    We very much like this restaurant particularly for its outdoor dining. We do not go inside restaurants yet. Our only complaint was that the special Pasta dish that we ordered was $53! We don’t ever ask about special prices because we expect them generally to be several dollars more than the average prices. This was a lot more. It did have seafood in it. You might want to ask the price before ordering a special. It certainly will not keep us from going back within the next week or two.. Lovely and delightful evening; bring your own wine.

    Good food, great service. The nearness to the SEPTA and AMTRAK trains make for a bit of noise as they pass through, but it is tolerable.

    People that dine here should know that when they pay with a CC there is a charge for that service. I think the restaurant should tell the customers that there is a 3 1/2 % additional charge for their meal.

    Our waiter Vini took great care of us on Father's Day! The food was delicious, portions generous. Loved the polpo with cannellini beans. I'm not sure my striped bass was actually striped bass, but it was tasty. Otto by Polpo is a great spot to have nearby.

    Second time dining here for Father's Day in the food was excellent and so was the service. Had a chef special of halibut with lump crab meat, Dad had the veal parmesan, and Mom had linguine pescatore. We also had a couple appetizers recommend the calamari do not recommend that the salsiccia, which was the only item we had that was less than excellent.

    The food was excellent; the service was, too. This was our second visit to this restaurant, and it is definitely our favorite Italian restaurant this side of the Atlantic. The location is convenient but, unfortunately, they can't do much about the SEPTA and AMTRAK trains that roar by only a few feet away. That, however, won't stop uis from visiting again.

    We had the evening specials which were excellent! The arugula salad with burrata, the veal in the cognac sauce and the sacchetti pasta in the rose cognac sauce- scrumptious!!! Our server was patient and terrific- my friend and I chatted for an hour to catch up before we placed our orders- he was so wonderful!!!

    The food is outstanding, and the service was quite attentive. Our only comment would be that the outdoor lights are quite harsh. Perhaps some strings of lights, or at least, softer bulbs in the current lights.

    They really did not make any effort to make this a nice night. I’m fact I had to ask twice for a seat outside and the lady finally sat us, their were plenty of seats. It was not crowded so don’t know why the concern over seating us outside????

    Visited the restaurant for Mother's Day dinner, so as you would expect they were very busy which made it somewhat loud. Service was attentive and the food very good. I wasn't sure what to expect based on some reviews, but I was pleasantly surprised and will dine here again.
