Our first time in Philly... so glad we picked this place for dinner. It lived up to its reputation for quality seasonal produce. We ordered the lump crab salad, roast chicken and key west shrimp- all prepared to perfection and beautiful presentation. Loved my vanilla panacotta - regretted my offer to share it with my son! The pumpkin seeds giveaway at the end was a sweet touch. More

Excellent place, I came early and no problem to sit and read for a few minutes. Menu simple but elegant Italian dishes and other Mediterranean styles. My sliced duck breast with Brussels sprout greens and a base of sweet potato purée, really good. Side of grilled cauliflower. Poached pear with gelato. All excellent. Casta Diva Is a BYO and we had a good wine to go along with it all. More

Entree was the perfect dinner. My boyfriend and I brought a bottle of champagne. Our waitress was so sweet, and opened the bottle and got us an ice bucket right away. The food was amazing. I order the duck and it was perfectly cooked. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the special of the day: spread lamb egg roll. It was good but nothing special. Definitely planning on going back.

The cocktails were extraordinary and the food was wonderful. The portions are moderate size but with plenty of flavor. The scallops were crispy, cooked to perfection and delicious. The trout in Bechamel sauce was amazing. The lamb cigar was a surprising treat with the most wonderful spice dipping sauce. Great food in a fantastic setting. Sidewalk sitting with a view of the park was an added treat. Rouge was a trailblazer on Rittenhouse dining that remains up to date--a classic! More

Discover Rittenhouse Square

Bordered by gleaming high-rises and featuring a well-manicured park, Rittenhouse Square sits in the midst of Philly cheesesteak territory, but you'll also find neighborhood restaurants offering custom shaved-beef creations alongside lighter vegetarian options. More formal Italian cuisine is also traditional in this section of town, and it's a nod to the immigrants who came over in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, you’ll find everything from tagliatelle, gnocchetti and exotic raviolis to veal tenderloin and polenta. If you’re hungry for a snack and the weather’s cold, consider a warm soft pretzel from a street vendor. If it’s warm, opt for a classic Italian water ice or a gelato sampler.
