Best Italian Food outside of Italy

As an individual who travels to Italy often, hands down this is the best Italian food I've ever had in the States. The overall feel of Caffe Casta Diva is warm and inviting while modern and chic. Having dined here several times I find the food to be consistently fabulous. You won't find a better selection of homemade pastas presented with delicately flavored sauces, both the scallops and the veal chop are to die... view more

Great food/bad service

The food was above average but the gentleman who took our order was beyond rude. I would have to say closer to ignorant, but more exactly obnoxious. We live in Center City and it is very convenient for us to get to this restaurant, but we won't be going back. There are too many other choices that are equally convenient.

Good Food Served With an Attitude

I had dinner there a couple of weeks ago with 4 other people. This was not my first time as I had eaten at Casta Diva 3-4 times before but had not been there in 6 mths. We had appetizers and pasta entrees, and we all enjoyed our meals. However, the service there is efficient but not friendly or welcoming. We had 3 different people attending to us but it was not clear if we had a primary server or not. The initia... view more

Delicious & Cute little Place

I went to this great little place on a double date. I called ahead to say we'd be 15 mins late which they was fine, but any later would have to wait. They were courteous when we arrived. I was horrified by how rude our friend's wife was, but the server took it all in stride & took her crazy personality nicely. Our salads were prompt & the food was excellent! Stayed long enough for dessert & really just enjoyed the at... view more

Good food, Slow service

I love the small place, but we were sitting at the most wobbly table that was making me sea sick. It was really horrible. Great food, but it took 20 minutes to pay the bill and then they only accept CASH. What kind of a resturant only accepts cash???? Maybe they should have put up a sign or something. It was very hot in there too because the kitchen was so close to the tables.

Wonderful Food and Service

Just like the restaurant's interior after restoration, their food is becoming even more sophisticated than ever.\r \r The waitress warmly welcomed us even though it was 10 minutes before their last order time. The chef also came to the table to talk about the speciality for the day. Once the order is through, each dish comes to the table at a perfect timing.\r \r We particularly enjoyed their scallop with saffron... view more

Great Food

I've been there twice for dinner now and I wish it were closer and we could go more. The food is absolutely great. I haven't eaten anything bad there. I've been wowed by quite a few dishes, and I'm pretty picky. \r \r The main stats: the place is small, so make reservations. It's BYOB, so you can save money that way. It's not cheap, but it's priced similar to other restaurants of its type and the food is worth ever... view more

Caffe Casta Diva

My husband and I recently dined in the ample and cozy BYOB. We had the ceasar salad, mussels, ny strip steak and pasta and sausage and everything was so fresh and super delicious. What a great meal we had and we could not get enough of the entrees and the bread also excellent. An awesome dining experience with great service. Highly recommended!

Fresh dishes, local ingredients, romantic setting

I dined at Casta Diva for the first time just a few weeks ago and we had a great experience. It was a week night so it was quiet, and we received attentive service. Our server was very knowledgable regarding the menu, and very descriptive regarding the specials and dishes. We each had a fresh large salad, and the carmelized artichoke was amazing. For dinner I had the duck - it was cooked perfectly. My husband h... view more

Best Italian food in the area.

Casta Diva's food is delicious. Soft, creamy, fresh mozzarella. Beautiful, ripe, juicy tomatoes. Perfectly cooked pasta. Fresh, fresh, ingredients in every dish. Dishes appear at the table as if prepared to sashay down the runway at a fashion show. Chef Steven has an impeccable sense of taste. He has a genuine love for what he does. Plump, light, cannolli and refreshing sorbetto. Servers are superb. Duck an... view more
