Yet again, noord was excellent. Liz was fabulous and quite charming. The art in the bathroom/gallery was all so beautiful. I especially liked the grumpy cat. We ordered the prawns and kibbeling for our first course and they were amazing. Then, the rabbit and the shellfish stew. Mind-blowing. Desserts are always a great finish to an outstanding meal; they only have three so get them all. Thank you noord! We’ll be back. More

We have driven past La Nonna plenty of times and never thinking to stop in. We were going to dine at La Fourno ... our go to Italian restaurant, but they are closed until further notice due to a fire in the restaurant. As fate would have it, we chose La Nonna for an evening out and we were both blown away. Upon entering the setting is very charming and the server and manager are warm and friendly. The food is one of the best we have eaten, we ordered salad, fried rice balls, lasagna, cannelloni, wild boar tomato gravy with wide noodles and was even offered a complimentary glass of white wine. Also, the lemon cake dessert was delicious. We will be stopping back again for a wonderful dining experience. More

Food was delicious. We ordered the Huevos rancheros, challah french toast and a side of potatoes and bacon. It came out about 7-10 minutes later, hot and delicious. The coffee was good and a waitress would periodically come by to refill if needed. The OJ is very tasty but you only get a small glass of it. There is an option to get a pitcher, but that’s not much bigger. I would definitely eat there again. I’d suggest making reservations because it filled up quick. Great quality food and fair prices.

Steak fried steak portion was smaller than any other restaurant I have been too. It was camouflaged by fries and not that warm. For $17 and it is a ground steak (as at all restaurants) it is too small and overpriced. Even at Rockbottom it was larger. Next time I will eat somewhere else More

This was our first experience in this restaurant school and will definitely not be the last! The food was excellent, the servers friendly, and trying hard to be thorough. Let’s face it, it’s a school and they’re learning the ropes. The menu changes four times a year, and it is somewhat limited, but everything was excellent. Four courses for $60 in the city for two people is a bargain! More

The food and service was good. Had a burger topped with Brisket. This was favorable however the brisket was surprisingly a little tough. Maybe it should have been sliced thinner. Glad we made reservations! There was a Phillies game getting ready to begin soon and we would have had to wait. We were actually there for an event to the Wells Fargo Center. More

Quetzally was founded by a father and son who turned out colorful, fresh and light dishes. Get the barbacoa sopes — puffy hand-formed corn cakes topped with a mountain of slow-cooked shredded lamb and crisp lettuce. The excellent dishes have all these little stand-out details that make the restaurant instantly memorable: fresh guacamole, just you order make it the moment food.More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
