• We were all truly amazed!!!

    December 27th, 2013

    My sister, Adeline,  her (4) children, their spouses and her grandchildren, all from California and Seattle, WA., plus my entire family (17 total): we were all truly amazed at the wonderful meal, ambience (in the Wine Cellar), and unbelievable hospitality of your staff.  Giuseppe did a fantastic job of paring different wines with different appetizers and main courses. He personally got to know each of my family members and made them feel special. Not to mention,  Angela, Gaetano, Louis, and Chris also made everyone feel as if they were part of the LaFamiglia family.  No one wanted the evening to end.  We are still talking about the food and hospitality.  The tender octopus, pasta medley, thinly shaved eggplant, and entrees were to die for.. thank you so much and we will surly see you again.  Nick Cirilli, Wallingford, PA

  • Thanks so much!

    Everything was wonderful and exceeded expectations.  All of the guests had a terrific time and I'm sure many will be coming back to the restaurant on their own in the future...as will Larry and I.  The food, service and ambiance were wonderful.  Thanks so much to you, Giuseppe, Billy, Angela, and the rest of the staff for making Larry's 50th birthday so memorable. — Jim Donio, Marlton, New Jersey

    Just wanted to thank everyone for a wonderful dinner last night. We will be back in the near future. It was nice to be at a restaurant where people still dress when they go out. — Charles Ruffing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Thanks to all of you for a superb evening!

    April 28th, 2010

    Warmest thanks to all of you for a superb evening.  I received so many genuine thanks and so much praise for the location and menu that I really must share the limelight with you.  It was delightful and I am very appreciative for all the "final touches" my guests and I enjoyed.  Thank you again.  I look forward to seeing you all again. — Gene Pratter, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Great experience!

    October 22nd, 2009

    I've been fortunate to have dined at several high-end establishments. La Famiglia is still one of my favorites. Ravioli that melt in your mouth, a penne and meat sauce that is outstanding. But the most memorable dish I've had was the salt-roasted mediterranean white fish filleted table-side. What a thing of beauty. And their wine list and dessert carts are superbly adequate. — Roberto Senastre

  • Superb!

    September 23rd, 2008

    My best friend and I dined at your restaurant and I must tell you is was superb. The service is impeccable and the food was amazing! Very impressed! We come to Philly once a year to dine at the fine restaurants and this was our first time but will not be our last. Everyone was so gracious it was like dining at home. Michael was a fabulous host and made our dining experience a most memorable evening. Thank you for keeping the tradition of fine dining at it's best. We will be back next year. — Marie A Cuzzi, Carver, MA

  • One of the best meals I have ever had!

    September 23rd, 2008

    It has been almost two years since I have been in Philadelphia and I still taste that black truffle and meat pasta. I am a foodie and have dined in hundreds of fine dining establishments and that dish ranks as one of the best I have ever had. Rest of the meal was also excellent but the pasta was the standout. Excellent service also. Can't wait to come back to Philly for a repeat visit! — Matt Breslauer, Statten Island, NY

  • Everything was perfect!

    September 22nd, 2008

    Dear Sir, I want to let you know how much we enjoyed dinging at your restaurant last Saturday evening. Everything was perfect. The occasion was my Mother and Father inlaws' 60th Wedding Anniversary. I want to especially thank the Wine Stewerd for being so accommodating to my mother inlaw. Thank you very much and I hope to visit your restaurant again soon. — Allan Murphy, Berwyn, PA

  • Thanks for a wonderful meal!

    September 19th, 2008

    The first thing I noticed was the beautiful marble floors-stunning! Even the stairs leading us to the second floor were marble. The service was friendly and impeccable. Your manager was even concerned about making sure we were pleased. Food yummy and the house merlot very tasty. Will save my money and be back for sure! Thanks for a wonderful meal. — Clare McManus, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • The service was excellent!

    December 9th, 2007

    My seven yr old daughter Sarah picked out this restaurant after researching her trip to Philadelphia. She was specifically looking forward to tasting the gnocchi which she read about in several travel guides. The service was excellent, and so was the food. This was certainly the nicest restaurant she's visited, and talked about it for days. Thank you for a memorable daddy/daughter evening during a great family travel experience! — Brian Yamaguchi, Elk Grove Village, Illinois

  • Far superior to any Italian restaurant in Chicago!

    November 23rd, 2007

    I was guided to the restaurant by my mother (who dined with you on a business trip); the dining experience was far superior to any Italian restaurant in Chicago. — Robert Swanson, Chicago, Illinois

  • Thank you for a great evening!

    November 8th, 2007

    The food was fantastic, the service better than most. The wine list was extensive yet a search through the California Cabs and I found a gem. I ordered the gem and it was not available. I found a replacement and I think the staff delivered the wrong bottle but we realized it after it was open. I asked for the 96 Sterling Cabernet and received and incredible 86 Sterling Meritage. I wish I could come by more but I can't. Anyway, the only thing about the evening that wasn't perfect was the wait staff topping off my wine glass. I am new to wine but I know that a 21 year old bottle will change throughout the evening. I and I am sure many others, would like the glass to be empty before a refill. The complexity of wine opening up can drastically change the experience. I did ask the staff to not top off and they did not. I will certainly return for the most important events in my life! Thank you for a great evening! — Donald Schriver, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

  • Extraordinary dining experience!

    June 25th, 2007

    It was the perfect dining experience you rarely have today. From the greeting at the door to the excellent, attentive yet unobtrusive service our evening meal will be long-remembered. The courses were expertly explained by our server, and they arrived so that we didn't feel rushed or bothered. The pasta was perfectly cooked and flavorful, and the veal entrees were flavorful, tender, and juicy. I have already raved about your restaurant to many friends here at home, and will make sure we return to your restaurant, quite possibly as our prime reason for returning to Philly! Thank you for an exquisite evening and an extraordinary dining experience. — Ron Bunt, Cascade, Maryland

  • The food was amazing!

    June 25th, 2007

    My friend and I were visiting Philadelphia and stumbled across your restaurant. We were in sweat pants and tank tops, but were treated like we were in our best attire. The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. It was truly a first class dining experience from beginning to end. I will certainly dine at your establishment again and again! — Ruth Thompson,
