I'm spending the week in Philadelphia and want to find the best places to eat Italian for around $20, including tax and tip. I don't drink, but I frequently order dessert, especially if the food preceding it was really good. My favorite thing in the world is good pasta.
I'm in West Philadelphia, right on the 34 Green Line trolley. I won't be driving, but I don't mind traveling, so places close to the subway are especially appreciated. Maybe you could suggest favorite places in different CC, West and South Philly neighborhoods.
I definitely prefer less formal restaurants.
Thanks very much.
