Hidden, Amazing BYO Italian in Philly?

poppasmiths | Aug 11, 200905:11 AM

Hello everyone. I just moved to the area and already have some friends from out of town coming into visit.

I am looking for a very small, hidden, authentic Italian BYO somewhere in downtown Philly. Essentially, I want to impress my friends by taking them to a "mom and pop" restaurant without pretension, but with tremendous food and an intimate atmosphere. I remember visiting a restaurant once in South Philly that was basically an expanded dining room in an Italian family's house with no sign on the wall - but had the best food I've ever tasted. Anyone have any ideas? Or can post me to another thread that discussed this topic?

Thank you for your help!
