  • The chefs murdered an old Italian woman and captured her soul for the ability to make the tiramisu here.
  • They take credit now!
  • Great steak.
  • Best restaurant ever. Cheap and delicious. Cash only
  • Amazing food.
  • Bring your favorite bottle of wine and an appetite for great Italian food in an intimate environment. Get to this little BYOB early to avoid the crowds, and bring cash!
  • Reservations are obtainable, but you arent guaranteed a table. the food is great, but the place is noisy and small. be careful, there are 2 restuarant locations across the street from one another.
  • Go here and try the Lobster Ravioli
  • Weve eaten their twice and very good both times. Service and atmosphere is nice. The tables can be a little tight if its crowded.
  • BYO serves great pasta and grilled calamari. careful with timing as reservations aren't always honored, and it's cash-only . Skip cannoli cake for dessert; instead try tartufo or tiramisu .
  • La Viola has the best white wine sauce of any Italian BYOB in the city, hands down.
  • Food was way to salty. Not worth the price.
  • Just go there for lunch, it's totally overpriced for dinner!
  • Reasonable prices, good food and atmosphere. Try the cheesecake at the end
  • The cheesecake is to die for
  • It is irresponsible for the owner to say that he cannot know identifying info about some customers. The associations of psychologists & psychiatrists have long held positions that it is not a choice.
  • Great BYOB, amazing food and cute atmosphere
  • It's my favorite byob in Philly, best Italian in the city! Get any of their seafood pastas, they are all delicious. For vegetarians I would recommend their gnocchi. I've never had better gnocchi!!
  • Great food, but not as good as Branzino. Terrible at honoring reservation times and really crammed inside. Try the one across the street for more space. Delicious tiramisu.
  • food and service couldn't be any better!
