Cuisine type: American; Italian
Style: This handsome yearling from the owners of Io E Tu is one of the more polished entries in a crop of new South Philadelphia trattorias. The kitchen isn't perfect, but Neapolitan-style pizzas from the imported wood-fired oven are a highlight, as are several homemade pastas and veal dishes.
Specialties: Pizza arugula; radicchio special; portobello special with crab imperial; gnocchi al pesto; farfalle alla boscaiola; vitello alla marsala; vitello francese; ricotta cheesecake.
Hours: Lunch: Mon.-Fri., 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Dinner: Mon.-Sat., 5-10 p.m.
