Looking for info on four restaurants I haven't tried yet. Atmosphere, food, cost, etc.

1. Albertino's Ristorante in South Philadelphia
2. Paradiso (a few doors down) in South Philadelphia
3. Astral Plane
4. Azafran

I have been hearing things about these four restaurants recently, and wanted to know what you all thought.

Also, I had the most amazing meal last Saturday at Caffe Casta Diva. I ordered my usual: Insalata La Stupenda- with the most luscious cut of roasted pepper and melt in your mouth grilled artichoke with a light drizzle of balsamic reduction- both salty and tart. For my entree I had the homemade ricotta gnocci with a light cream sauce with tiny crubles of gorganzola and baby peas. The creamy saltiness of the gorganzola perfectly highlighted the way the gnocci dissolved in your mouth... Lastly, I finished with the cannoli - always a fantastic ending!
