Went here with a group of adults and kids to celebrate one of he kid's birthday. The menu was a bit 'adult' at first glance but the wait staff was quick to announce that the kitchen was flexible to serve to order any kind of pasta and sauce to our group. If it was not on the menu, please ask... More

La Famiglia Ristorante was in walking distance of our hotel located in the Independence Hall district. It is a small restaurant so reservations are a must. I went with a party of seven and we probably should have dressed up a bit more for the setting. Beautiful chandelier, linen tablecloths and napkins, and a quiet setting so the whole table... More

We were taking another couple out. It was a special night. The wait staff was appropriately formal and accommodating and not rushing us at all. The wine list if your into very deep wine lists was amazing. It's not a few pages it's a 5 inch thick book. And take a walk downstairs even if you don't need the rest... More

I never had any restaurant experience this Fabulous! Everything was Outstanding! We shared their eggplant appetizer and citrus salad which were amazing! My date had the veal chop and I had the Fusilli Pescatore! Both were Exceptional! My date's only complaint was there wasn't more chop because it was so awesome. The wine list, actually encyclopedia, was a bit overwhelming.... More

This is a classic spot in the city for Italian cuisine thats been around for many years and continues to be excellent. I had an olive oil and herb marinated steak and eggplant on my last trip and both were excellent. Fantastic wine list.

Dinner with colleagues - greeted warmly and seated quickly. Friendly staff. Excellent wine list with moderate prices across the board. Note: this is not a place to order a beer. Appetizer of toasted or baked provolone cheese was good. Entree of oversized gnocchi (portions on the smaller side) in a light white truffle sauce was a solid choice. Other diners... More
