Success! Thanks for posting your review of Il Cantuccio. You’ve done the world some good today.

To those that like to complain!

It's funny how many times you can tell people on the phone when making reservations if they can come in earlier or that you'll need the table back at a certain time because another party will be using the same table, they always find something to complain about. they dont thank you for bringing them dessert on the house even trying to get them in at that time when someone already made reservations weeks before them. ... view more

Worst dining out experience EVER!

My family and I took my mom here for her birthday celebration, which we had hoped would be a nice, relaxing evening. We had a reservation for 6:00 pm for ten people. We found out when we arrived at the restaurant that they had another big party with a 7:30 reservation, therefore their goal was to get a party of ten in and out of the restaurant in 90 minutes! \r \r From the moment we arrived at the restaurant the ru... view more

Il Cantuccio

Ate at Il Cantuccio last night with a party of 6 mature adults. The atmosphere was reminiscent of Italian restaurants I have been to, noisy but quaint. The service was very good. The mussels marinara was top notch as everyone was dunking and slurping the sause after the mussels were gone. My meat lasagna was delicious as was the fusilli seafood pasta. Desserts were basic italian and very good and above all the cost w... view more

Better than I could have imagined!

When we began planning our daughter's small intimate wedding, I asked her where they wanted their wedding dinner. Not being familiar with Philadelphia, I was at a loss as to where to even begin. When I asked where she wanted to have the dinner, she didn't hesitate and said ""Il Cantuccios in Northern Liberties"". She and her fiance had dinner there a few times and loved the atmosphere and the food. They could not hav... view more

Favorite BYOB!

This is the best BYO in Philly! Every time I go there it is such a treat. Love the bread and dips to start with and have never been disappointed by any of the appetizers, main courses and desserts that I've tried. The setting is adorable and the wait staff is always friendly. Can't wait to go back again and again.....

I've Run Out of Synonyms for Delicious...

I ATE OFF OF A STRANGERS FORK IN THIS RESTAURANT. Seriously, if that's not the sign of a friendly, lovely neighborhood restaurant, I don't know what is. We decided after we had already chosen our entrees to have an appetizer and it was no problem. We had many servings of fantastic warm bread, and my friend even ate the greens on her plate (trust me, it's a HUGE accomplishment). Everything thing I ate was really t... view more

My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's dinner. A sign at the front said '3 Course dinner Mon-Thurs $25'. We didn't have the option to choose from the regular menu, we were just handed a Valentine's day pre fixe menu. The portions were a good size and we enjoyed our food. \r \r However, the bill came and to our surprise, we had been charged $50 per person! Not only that but they automatically tacked on 22... view more

Great food, noisy, mediocre service, don't seem to care about the customers

When we arrived with reservations, the busboy? seated us without a word. Not sure if he even checked the book. Customers seemed to be a problem for him. Maybe it was a bad night for him but he also seemed irritated that we didn't want bottled water...... The owner came and quickly (and loudly) gave us the specials. (Hey, we're not hard of hearing.) Since there was no special board or special menu, we got to hear ... view more

Appetizers and BYO - the only thing going for this place

A surprise birthday party thrown for me, but it seems like the real surprise was the sucky food. Usually you can't go wrong with a local cozy Italian BYO restaurant... well it was a good thing I had appetizers with my boyfriend around the corner at Koi (highly recommended local BYO), because I feel sorry for all my friends who were starving and had to suffer through this meal.\r The BYO is always a plus and the app... view more

Cozy romantic Italian BYOB

A wonderfully down to earth BYOB in Northern Liberties with great food and thorough, unpretentious service. Make reservations as it fills up quickly!
