4 Best South Philly Italian Restaurants For Valentines Day

4 Best South Philly Italian Restaurants For Valentines Day

When I think of a romantic dinner, I think Italian. Where is the best Italian in Philadelphia? SOUTH PHILLY. Here are my favorite Italian restaurants to provide the food and the setting for a memorable Valentine’s day with your sweetheart.

L’Angolo Ristorante

1425 W Porter St


L’Angolo is TINY so I hope you like your partner.  You actually feel like you’re having an amazing meal in your Grandmother’s house. It’s a BYOB so plan accordingly.

Palizzi Social Club

1408 S 12th St


This is a membership only restaurant, so if you do not have a membership or know someone who does, scroll down.  Nothing is more romantic than entering this exclusive social club, which is camouflage in a row of South Philly townhomes. Expect old school Italian music, and decor from the 50’s. The bar also has an array of impressive cocktails to pair with your unforgettable meal. Phone use is not permitted here, which makes your experience more personal. There are limited hours so check the website.

Mr. Martino’s Trattoria

1646 E Passyunk Ave


You would never notice this restaurant located on bustling Passyunk Ave.  Upon entering, you are no longer in Philadelphia.  You are in Europe. Be prepared to sit close to your neighbors and enjoy a no-frills amazing meal. There are limited days of business so make sure to call. BYOB as well!

Dante & Luigi’s

762 S 10th St


Ahh, to save the best for last.  Dante & Luigi’s is a flat out beautiful restaurant.  White table cloths, impeccable service, massive fireplaces, valet parking..  If you want to impress your partner, here is the place.  It’s not as small as the other restaurants I suggested, but there are various rooms to make the experience more intimate.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
