My previous visit I ordered the veal marseilla and it was tasteless and small portions. My recent visit I ordered veal parm. The plate was full of spaghetti and a 6x6 inch square piece of not fresh veal that was 1/4" thick and over cooked....More

Very mediocre restaurant, from the décor, to the menu, to the presentation, and quality. Too many other really good restaurants in the area to waste a dinner here.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night as a group of ten. Reservations were made ahead of time and confirmed by the restaurant on the day. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The homemade bread was to die for and the waiter kept refilling the basket. Our...More

I hadn't been here in some time and I wasn't disappointed. I had the homemade cavatelli in vodka sauce. If you want some good Italian food in a relaxed setting at a decent price, go here. It's a converted church and it's close to Citizens...More

My second visit didn't disappoint! Delicious from start to finish. For one that is half Italian, I'm picky about going out for Italian food. They start off bringing you cooked mushrooms with warm bread. The Italian bread is excellent and I typically skip the bread....More

We asked around for recommendations for Italian in Philadelphia. "You have to go to South Philly for the best Italian," everyone said. So we did. Criniti's was lovely (the building used to be a small neighborhood church) and the food was excellent. We were there...More
