Great BYO with excellent outdoor seating. The service is attentive and everyone working there is having fun. You can sense it. They have a massive gluten-free pasta menu, and the sauces were excellent. It’s affordable (actually, it’s a real steal). The lobster pasta special was A+. Can’t wait to go back. More

Service was a bit slow; took a little while to get noticed. Waitress forgot our beer order the first time, then brought the wrong beer the second time. Food was good; had the pork taco-itos, buffalo chicken quesadilla, and a veggie burger. Would go back, especially with the Ticketmaster half-price appetizer deal. Better food than the other restaurants we’ve tried at XfinityLive. More

French American | South Philly, Philadelphia

I enjoyed another terrific meal at Felly just yesterday. The service was attentive (Jack treats us very well), the food was hot and quick to arrive and the atmosphere was welcoming. The restaurant is always pretty quiet and when I’m there, which is multiple days a week, there is light easy-listening music playing in the background. The menu itself is pretty diverse with several different starter, salad and entree options. There are daily specials too - yesterday I had the surf n’ turf, YUM! I for one find large menus with tons of choices off-putting so Felly does it just right. Also, the chef owner is open to modifications so if you’d like something slightly tweaked then just ask. There may be a charge for doing so but in my experience it’s negligible. In short, it’s an amazing spot and I know the owners strive to ensure every patron has a positive and memorable experience when dining at Felly. Do yourself the favor and make a reservation - you won’t be sorry that you did. More

Nannie Francos was absolutely amazing! It is the same owners and concept as Ninas Trattoria so you get 3 courses served family style. First course was meatballs, burrata salad and a traditional flatbread served with garlic knots and focaccia. Second course we had gnocchi Gorgonzola, chicken Parm and tagliardi bolognese. 3rd course we got cannolis and zeppolis! The restaurant is small and very intimate. They also only do family style dinners on Mondays and Tuesdays with limited seating. It is a must try for sure! We will be back! 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.
