This was an accidental visit and a dining experience unlike anything I have seen in years. Serendipity can be wonderful.
What you need to understand is that this is a small place with a very proud Italian owner who is committed to "the right way" to prepare classic Italian dishes. He is committed to tradition. This is how it has always been done; this is how it will be done.
By the way, small does not mean cramped or noisy. It does mean very attentive service with the owner actively helping his staff. Unlike many other good places in Philly, you can actually have a conversation over the meal and actually hear what is being said.
If you're the "skinny mocha double shot vanilla powder no whipped" kind of person, this is not your place. If you want quality classic Italian dishes made with quality ingredients and meticulous attention to detail for a modest price, you need to stop here.
