Hands down, Hostaria Da Elio is my favorite BYOB Italian restaurant in Center City Philadelphia. The menu offers very authentic, freshly cooked meals at a very reasonable price. The menu offers a wide variety of meals to choose from however, I would suggest to anyone to just skim over the menu and just listen to their long list of daily specials! The pasta, fish, shellfish, meats and signature dishes are out of this world and dont forget about their many homemade desserts! Service has always been friendly and prompt with no complaints.. If the weather permits, they do have a wonderful small outside patio in the back. Although small in size, they can accommodate medium to large sized parties. Make a reservation in advance to sit outside. Thank you Elio for 15+ years of fantastic authentic Italian Cuisine!!!
Pros: Service, ambience, quality and variety of food
