Congratulations to the owners of Radicchio for a terrific new restaurant. I ate here this past Monday evening, after reading the recent Rick Nichols review in the Inquirer magazine. Even though we arrived fairly late, near 10 PM, the manager was extremely welcoming and forthright. In fact, the manager deserves kudos for his work ethic and style. We were greeted warmly about that night's specials, and then given two pieces of bruschetta. The mussels in the red sauce and the grilled calamari salad were outstanding, and very fresh. In between courses, the manager even gave us a plate of marinated beets for free to taste, and they were refreshing. That gesture alone impresed me. Our dinners of veal saltimboca and seafood fettucine were fantastic, and very reasonable. I commend Radicchio on their service and high quality, and wish them luck. I hope they are here for many years.
Pros: fresh food, attentive service, reasonable prices
Cons: noisy dining area
