When I was visiting my sis, she and her husband took me to S. Philly ....for the best Italian Food I've ever had (except at her house). The brocolli rabe appetizer was to die for. I loved the scallops and pasta. The waitress sang a beautiful song...what a voice! It was so different than any Italian place you'd find in Sacramento, CA. It was like "the real deal". I had the best meal and the best time. BYOB.
I loved the Reading Market too...and yes, we had lunch at Pats one day.
