This is a really short notice trip, so many places are booked (at least according to opentable). Staying in Center City but would be willing to travel if necessary.

I'm usually looking for good Italian when in Philly -- liked Osteria in the past, Porcini was mostly a disappointment last time.

As for Italian BYOBs, I'm looking at Branzino and Caffe Casta Diva, but other contenders that are non-Italian are

- The Dandelion
- Estia
- Farmer's Cabinet

We stopped in at the latter for pre-Koo Zee Doo cocktails and were almost disappointed we weren't going to eat there, as the menu looked interesting. Koo Zee Doo, of course, was awesome but is not a choice this time around.

Any opinions?
