It's only taken 114 years, but South Phillly landmark Dante & Luigi's is adding a branch.

By spring, according to plan, Dante & Luigi's To-Go will be selling frozen, refrigerated and jarred Italian products from 12 W. Lancaster Ave. in Ardmore; entrance will be on Cricket Avenue.

The LaRussas say they wanted to expand to the Main Line but weren't keen on adding a restaurant and certainly did not want to open a shop to sell hot prepared foods that may sit in a case all day.
