This Northern Liberties spot is two concepts in one: a pizzeria that serves up fresh to-go pies and hoagies and a 250-seat restaurant where we spend our time sipping on Italian soda cocktails during Happy Hour. While we’re always on the lookout for a good sub, you should come here specifically to sit in their dining room and have a bowl of pasta and a glass of wine with a few friends.
They also have a good amount of seating in their outdoor covered garden and TVs for nights where you want to watch both the Germantown Ave. crowd and the one at Wells Fargo Center. The menu ranges from grilled octopus and chicken parmesan to a $92, 32-ounce porterhouse steak, but you’re better off keeping it simple with their spaghetti alla chitarra. It has plenty of parmesan creaminess, trumpet, cremini, and button mushrooms, and a hint of white wine flavor in each bite.
