Visited this restaurant with a local. It was on a Saturday night and it was very busy. We were seated immediately and offered our menus, water, and a wine bucket for our wine ( BYOB). Our server was excellent and very willing to offer recommendations. We shared a couple of appetizers, and ordered our meals. All were excellent and beautifully... More

Took my family there just before my daughter moved to Denver. Eat in or dine outside - the food is wonderful. Homemade pasta! BYOB. What more can you ask for? Good service and priced right. Would definitely go there again.

I am not a yuppie, and tres Scalini had a good restaurant and reputation at its previous location. When it relocated to present location , I tried it twice and it was bad. I got a gift card, and used it this past Saturday. It was still terrible. I sat around and watched them rip off yuppies left and right... More

One of the best restaurants I've been to in awhile. The fact that is in South Philly makes it even more special. Wait staff were so friendly and helpful. Its a BYOB and I love that.

We were fortunate enough to have a business associate from Philadelphia introduce us to this wonderful restaurant. Everything was absolutely wonderful. But what perhaps was most special to me was the wonderful, homemade pasta. Great pasta is everything to me and when it is fresh and homemade, there's nothing else like it. Several of us shared a few different items... More

This place was horrible! First, I asked for butter for my bread and they told me they don't have any. I guess they use some alternative to butter in the kitchen. Second,they charged us an astronomical price for family-style appetizers which consisted of bread and lettuce. I was not a happy customer.

I hosted a party for 11 people there on a Sunday late afternoon. I advance ordered family style dishes. Everything was excellent and the service was outstanding. There was plenty of food for all of us, and every dish was distinctive and well prepared. All my guests raved about the food. I can't wait to go back again.

The five of us went on Friday evening. We brought wine. They bring over a homemade, subtle bean puree to eat on the excellent bread. Place starts to fill up, parties about the size of ours, and it gets festive. VERY festive. If you're used to dance clubs, this will not be an unfamiliar sound level. My cod was fresh,... More
