Best burgers in the city. I always plan to try something different but get the burger every time. Nice place and close to historic attractions.

Limited menu. Overpriced for the quality and the variety. One of the waitresses was rushing us and just recommending the first item on the menu to get us to order so she can move the next table although the place was not crowded. We ordered what she recommended and was terrible. We left half of the food and we didn’t even want to take it with us. Would never come back.

The restaurant is located in the old part of Philadelphia and has a nice atmosphere. The menu has mostly Italian items. I was there for an early lunch right around 11 a.m. I ordered the lasagna which was good but could have been hotter. No bread was served with the meal so I had to ask for it. Then when the bread was brought, no butter was brought with it so I had to ask for it. The bread was excellent! However, there was a smell of cleaning materials, such as lysol or bleach, that, while not overwhelming certainly did not make the meal enjoyable.

Before catching a movie in Olde City my bestie and I wanted to get a bite to eat. We stumbled across Barra. It was the best decision we made all day. Their happy hour menu and drink specials are great!

I think the deal of the day was their 12" Margherita Pie for $5.00. You an eat this in or take it to go. Can you say delish???

Long story short, I've been back twice since then (lol).

This place was wonderful. My husband and I visited Philly and I wanted some good Italian food. I Stopped in the 711 and asked if anyone knew of a good Italian Restaurant this gentleman said follow me I work at one. My husband and I followed him. So glad we did. We had the meatball appetizer then they brought us bread with balsamic and oil to dip we ordered lasagna and the burger wrapped in pizza dough. Oh my goodness every bite of everything was awesome. The manager Elizabeth was a delight she was very knowledgeable about alot of things. I am so glad we met that gentleman at 711 this is a big shout out to him!#
