We were looking for a different South Philly restaurant as we have been to many. Going with another couple. Noticed in Zagat this had a 26 food . Made a res and went Sat night at 730.
Place kind of in a out of the way area surrounded by big box stores, but there is a parking lot.
Place was kind of empty, a large party in a back area, some people at the bar and a fellow singing opera. He was very good. The food turned out to be quite good and the waitress was very helpful and pleasant. The owner visited our table. We ordered a lot, appetizers, deserts etc, drinks so we spent
200 for four. There also was a dj and dance floor later(playing oldies) but requests were accepted.
Overall pretty good it seems to lack that certain something that south philly places have.

This place went through a Restaurant Impossible (food network) re-design about a year ago and though I didn't experience it before, I can certainly say that it is now worth a visit. We love exploring South Philly and finding neighborhood italian restaurants that haven't been discovered by center city restaurant goers yet. This is one of our very favorite finds.
The Portabello app. with crabmeat is delicious and very special, the Veal La Stanza is unusual and delicious, the pasta puttanesca comes with big shrimp and has great flavor, the cheese cake ball dipped in chocolate is a GREAT dessert. They kindly split our salads on separate plates and the service overall was really great and once of the best parts of the experience.
Not fancy, but comfortable and fun and great for family and friends.

Our waitress was incredibly helpful, the appetizers and meals were excellent. I had the chicken picante, which was superb! You've gotta try the portabella mushroom too! Their cheesecake was good, but I think it could have been improved upon with the addition of a fruit compote/sauce like raspberry or strawberry.
