Like a lot of us philly locals I have eaten here over the years many many times. Just went again last week on a Saturday night. It had been a long time and it was just as I remembered it. The food is pretty good depending on what you get. There is a lot to choose from. The waiters will... More

People call it Old School. They are right on! Food was over the top. Service was excellent. 1% minus for no bar. Great service bar that had an extensive wine list and great cocktails but nothing before,

Nothing beats a great Italian meal in South Philly. The waitstaff are friendly and funny, referring to their dishes using exaggerated South Philly lingo (think 'gravy' and 'macaroni'). The expert preparation of al dente pasta served with generous hand-grated Parmesan is a winner. The veal dishes are superb, and the salads ample. Great wine list and decent cocktails, too! A...

This place has it all! First off the interior is beautiful! The tables are spaced apart so that even with a full house, we didn't feel cramped at all. The staff worked like a well oiled machine and we never wanted for anything The food was fantastic! There were numerous menu options, reasonably priced, and absolutely and amazingly tasty!

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.
