“Best Italina Meal - Could Hug the Chef!”
Reviewed 2 October 2011

We had a "Buy with Me" Coupon and took friends to La Stanza. We had never been there so had no idea what to expect. We started with salads - two of us had the Cesar salad which was yummy. One of us had the house salad with lovely greens and our fourth friend had the salad with mandarin oranges and walnuts - all crisp an delicious. We each ordered a different entree and none of were disappointed- in fact, I think that the sauce on my pasta was the best that I have ever tasted. I had ordered the angel hair with crab, spring and asparagus - it was delicious! The others had an eggplant dish and a veal dish - all were outstanding. We went on a Sunday evening and since the Phillies were playing, the restaurant was not busy. The server was pleasant and friendly . We will definitely go here again. Parking is free - right next to the restaurant.

“disappointing”
Reviewed 12 September 2011

I had eaten at La Stanza a couple years ago and thought it was very good, so decided to stop in for dinner this past week...though the restaurant was remodeled the food need an overhaul....veal marsala was paperthin, overly sweet and very disappointing....the sauce on my son's chicken parmagina was also very sweet and acidic...won't be headed back there any time soon.

“Bright and Cheery”
Reviewed 13 May 2011

Just dined again at La Stanza. The atmosphere was conducive to a happy and good time. Food was great as always. Recently redecorated and brighter. We have always had a good time there, and have been dining there for several years.

“Perfect low-key evening!”
Reviewed 28 December 2010

Loved La Stanza! Was worried about finding a restaurant that would satisfy my foodie husband and my totally down to earth family who knows good food but hates high profile. This restaurant struck the perfect balance! We will go back next time the family gets together in Philly!
