Branzino Italian Ristorante

Branzino Philly.has that classic old world feeling that brought me back to our time in Italy. It wasn’t just the homemade pasta that they make in house, but it was the excellent service and passion for their restaurant. Dori who seemed to do it all (part-owner, hostess, waitress, maitre’d) is married to the chef and it is clear how much they love they put into the space. Our favorite dishes were the egg ravioli and strip steak (pictured below). They also have a great room if you’re looking to host an event. The room is perfect for rehearsal dinners or birthday celebrations. Did I mention it’s BYOB and right near Rittenhouse square. Go check out Branzino.
