Why is Emporio Rulli on Chestnut Street always empty? Last night, we were looking for a quick bite before a movie. My aunt wanted Italian but A16 and E'Angelos were both packed, so we decided to give Emporio Rulli a try. I have to say, I was impressed and left wondering why people seem to shun this place. Pasta was cooked perfectly al dente, salad was fresh and lightly dressed, and the price was reasonable. I'd go to Emporio Rulli over E'Angelos or that pasta chain further up Chestnut (Fuzio?) in a heartbeat.
