This petite BYOB in Spring House offers wonderful Italian and seafood dishes that are often enhanced by Asian spices and techniques. Whether it's pan-seared tuna and scallops with honey ginger glaze or chicken Po Le topped with mushrooms, every entree is expertly prepared. In addition to an extensive regular menu, nightly offerings feature about a dozen specials, with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Our visit highlighted the swordfish-scallops, pan-seared monkfish-lobster, whole fish branzino and more. The grilled octopus salad was fantastic. Outdoor dining also is available.

My wife and I ate dinner with friends at this restaurant this weekend. I was disappointed in almost every aspect of our dining experience.

The place was packed and very loud. The bread was luke warm and almost stale. The appetizers were no better- the broiled calamari was salty and the fried oysters were over-breaded and miniscule. My seafood pasta entrée was OK but the clams and mussels were tiny, tied in with a less then generous portion of pasta. The fried soft shelled crabs were oily, salty and very forgettable. The dessert was good as was the service.

The restaurant is a BYOB, a real plus but not enough of a plus to overcome the flaws.
The pricing of the apps and entrees are within the normal range, albeit a little pricey given the portion size,

Maybe we hit the place on a bad day but I will not be rushing back.

A bit pricey, but worth it. White table cloth restaurant, BYOB, friendly, knowledgeable servers. Very busy place, be sure to reserve.

Typically elegance even looks like it takes hard work, but at Po Le Cucina, it was gracefully and seamlessly evident in all aspects of the experience. Four of us dined on 4 different Italian dishes & we all agreed that all four were decidedly outstanding and that the hand-made pastas were quite extraorindary.. That doesn't happen often for our four very different tastes and preferences <smile> ...The family is in evidence from the front of the house to kitchen and in between and the ease with which they were professional and friendly was really noteworthy - and enjoyable. And the master Chef is a delight to chat with about food and even the chemistry of cooking <smile> ... I find it being the #1 dining establishment in SpringHouse as being inadequate as I am certain it would vie for the top spot in the larger area / county. Will be back there as soon as I am able. Don't pass this place up if you are in the area but do make reservations as its size and growing popularity may make walk ins a tad risky ...

Good was really great and I'm Italian! The gnocchi was soooo good. The dessert are made there and very very fresh. The calamari was delicious. Ceasar salad fresh and dressing wonderful. The service was right on not a place for babies though because it's small but absolutely a great dinner experience.
