For wonderful traditional southern Italian food in an elegant yet approachable setting, Dante & Luigi's is perfect. Our family celebrated a birthday in one of the high-ceilinged rooms and felt as though we were guests in a beautiful south Philadelphia home complete with chandeliers and antique furnishings. Everything we ate was delicious and portions were ample. The wine selection, while... More

We rank this place in the top five, excellent ambiance, top notch service by Frank, entrees that left us wanting more and a TIRAMISU that left us speechless licking the plate.

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to D&L's. We were seated promptly and our knowledgeable server reviewed the evening's specials. For starters we had a Caesar and dinner salad - both were appropriately portioned with fresh ingredients. We dined on the Baked Gnocchi and Perciatelli Genovase as entrees. Both were served piping hot and were more than filling. I would definitely... More

The decor is magnificient, they kept the old molding work, 1920 lamp shades, beautiful arched windows, white cloth table, garcon with black noeud papillon and white shirt. The food is classical but made at the perfection. I had the bell peppers suffed with meat, excellent. Good wine too. Lovely place, reasonnable price. Definitely recommend.

Stopped here for dinner on our recent trip to Philadelphia and was pleasantly surprised. It is a lovely old townhouse with a great vibe. The food was very good and good portions. We shared a dessert and it was also delicious! The only drawback was the waiter who assumed a friendly banter with us that was very arrogant and somewhat... More

This restaurant has a very good rating over the internet but I do not understand why. The food is not great. In the best case I can rate this food average. Their bronzino fish was mushy. I had stuffed calamari before in many places. I know that this is their signature dish, but I was disappointed. The desert was good... More
