Afghan | South Philly, Philadelphia

I have been at this restaurant many times and this past time I went for dinner and I felt the portions of the meals have been cut back! Also, when asked for the hummus and bread - there were 5 of us and that's all we got, was 5 small slices of the bread - prior visits we were given a full basket of bread. Not sure if the staff didn't feel like making any! The service was sluggish which was a surprise because there were 2 employees working and there were only 2 sets of tables of people - one of which was us. The food was excellent and we will return, but hoping the next time the portions will be better in size! More

We were seeing a movie in the South Philadelphia neighborhood and wanted a light wonderful meal and we remembered that Caffe Valentino and it’s chef/proprietor Cosimo and his wife, Heather are wonderful hosts. Dinner was top notch... but even better was their warm welcome and graciousness. We can’t wait to go back. Bring your wine! Or cross the street to their beer garden, and buy a couple of bottles.

I was a fan of Bistro 7 and glad to see Michael has not skipped a beat. My husband and I shared the duck, and I had the snail stew as an appetizer. Our friends had the oysters with scrambled eggs, and the strawberry beet salad. They said their entrees were exceptional. Not too many restaurants are serving this type of food and with great execution. Wishing them much success. More

As regulars to cafe y chocolate across the street we decided to try la Mula Terca for brunch. We were not disappointed as the diverse menu gives you the chance to have dishes different than the run of the Mexican food found at most places. They were very accommodating making huevos Con chorizo (not on the menu) for our son who seems to always want that. More

Nannie Francos was absolutely amazing! It is the same owners and concept as Ninas Trattoria so you get 3 courses served family style. First course was meatballs, burrata salad and a traditional flatbread served with garlic knots and focaccia. Second course we had gnocchi Gorgonzola, chicken Parm and tagliardi bolognese. 3rd course we got cannolis and zeppolis! The restaurant is small and very intimate. They also only do family style dinners on Mondays and Tuesdays with limited seating. It is a must try for sure! We will be back! More

Quetzally was founded by a father and son who turned out colorful, fresh and light dishes.

The excellent dishes have all these little stand-out details that make the restaurant instantly memorable: fresh guacamole, just you order make it the moment food.More

Discover South Philly

South Philadelphia is a bustling, diverse neighborhood that reflects the best of what the city has to offer, and its food is no exception. Many of the city’s most iconic foods can trace their roots here. Of course, no visit to Philly is complete without a classic cheesesteak, invented in this part of town by Pat Olivieri in 1930. In fact, Italian-Americans living in South Philadelphia have been a driving force behind the city’s food culture, popularizing favorites like pizza and water ice. You can visit the Italian Market area for a sampling of some of the city’s specialty foods from quality meats and produce to baked goods and gelato. If Vietnamese food is what you’re after, this neighborhood is also home to plenty of authentic dishes like pho and banh mi.
