Need Rec for Italian in S. Philly

mielimato | Nov 21, 2008 07:32 AM

My husband and I would like to take our family for a nice Italian dinner to announce the arrival of our new baby! We are looking for a family-style restaurant (but not too loud) that serves good food. Not too gimmicky--I think I can do without singing waiters. BYOB would be great. My husband and I both have lived in Italy so we are more partial to "Italian" Italian food but I can appreciate well cooked Italian American myself. I'm thinking a nice family-style dinner of really good Osso Buco, Shrimp Fra Diavolo, etc. $20-$30 per person price range.

I've read good things about Dante and Luigi's. What are your thoughts? Any advice would be well appreciated!


Edit: 1) Party size is for 5-6 people 2) I do mean Dante and Luigi's not Franco and Luigi. Thanks for the correction.
