This neighborhood BYOB restaurant is as cute as a button, warm and inviting. The service is brisk and friendly, the food however is just OK. The Pasta's were overcooked and smothered with sauce; the Dover Sole was nicely filleted but also overcooked and also smothered in something...probably butter; the veal milanese was well cooked but...over breadcrumbed making it a little...

Very small, BYO restaurant with excellent food and great service. Have been a few times and each time was a treat. Only a few tables and no reservations (at least when we went) so we went early. Really enjoyed the food and small-location ambiance.

I have been coming here, mostly for lunch, for years. The food is always fantastic. The service is impeccable. All of the staff always have a friendly 'hello' & big smile for everyone.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit Philadelphia. The Buffalo Mozzarella as an appetizer is in believable. Anything with a pink sauce is amazing. Headed back to New Mexico with memories of the great Italian food in Philly.

I had an octopus appetizer that was fabulous and a great pasta for dinner as well. The salad was a little boring but perhaps I only think that because there was a similar salad under my octopus. Bring your own wine as they don't have a liquor license yet but will cheerfully uncork and pour for you.

We hadn't been here in a long while but the place is still great. Radicchio is a very popular BYOB that does not take reservations. Our party of three went on a Wednesday night and the place was packed both inside and outside. We waited for about 40 minutes and it was all uphill from here. I forgot how great... More

comfortable interior as well as outside dining. Radicchio has a feel good environment with energy, wonderful staff, a diverse menu, and daily specials that are exceptional. The red pepper salad and any of the fish dishes (all daily fresh) is a knock out. As an example, the Branzino was outstanding. The dover sole held its own. The pasta dishes are... More

I was delighted by my italian gnocchi! There were hand made I didn't needed to ask it, It was so obvious! The tomato sauce also home made.. delicioso :) There isn't much different plates on the menu, but enough choice for everyone! The service was great! The waiters were respectful and not always coming at our table to check on... More

Neen here countless times. Always great. Recommend the veal filets if they are on special. Outside seating is great. Perfect little spot for couples.

Best Italian food in the area, regardless of price. Have eaten here several times and the food and service have never been anything less than excellent. While vacationing in Naples Italy last month I met a gentleman that was born and raised in Naples. He proceeded to tell me how he has traveled to several states in the US for... More
