Known For

Steakhouse

For half a century this family-run restaurant in Bella Vista has kept the bellies of South Philly full with a menu covering Italian classics (stuffed peppers, broccoli rabe), steakhouse favorites (clams casino, shrimp oscar), and mains. Prices are pretty reasonable considering the entrees also come with a side dish, unlike a ton of other steak spots. It’s got a decidedly unpretentious vibe, so slip on the tee and jeans (but please, keep the top button buttoned).
