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

Owner is creepy!

The food here is outstanding and more importantly it is consistently that good. I think they have had the same cook for a long time and it shows. You always get a consistently good meal here. The bartenders and wait staff are good too. The one major negative of this place is the fact that the owner lingers around his staff and patrons. He is almost obtrusive. My wife and I have noticed this on multiple occasions and ... view more

AWFUL Customer Service!!

We are planning our rehearsal dinner and had to work with Brian their events coordinator. Well he took days to return a call or an email (3-5 days). Then when we wanted to come in and see the space that we were going to be in (6pm during a weekday during their normal business hours) we were told that no one could show us the room. Huh??! Brian told us that only a maitre'd works and he would be busy showing people tab... view more

I just always feel relaxed and able to enjoy the atmosphere. Here are some of the reasons that I love Sotto Varalli A. that it's a great place to people watch, B. it's some great yummy food. C. some of the best bartenders in town! Seriously these guys can slam it out! Varalli's ... view more

Never going back

My husband and I were so excited to visit this establishment. The food was ok, our waitress was very nice, but in a city as big as Philadelphia, you would think that they would honor a parking garage to validate a ticket which was right next door. I was never so humiliated in my life. This restaurant is not worth going back to. The ambience needs help and I didn't feel the same as when I was in Capitol Grille. Not th... view more

Good food in an empty without own soul and non-character place

Our third time in the restaurant. I received a promotional birthday certificate and we decided to give it another try. First, I made reservations for the Upstairs section of restaurant and was even added a comment when I made my reservation. Once again, my petition was ignored because they were only sitting people in first floor. The restaurant is missing something, it doesn’t have like an own soul, a character. The ... view more

Good food but TINY PORTIONS!!!!!!

I was just in Philly for Memorial Day weekend and went to this restaurant on Saturday night. It seemed like a nice place to enjoy the evening and watch the live jazz musicians who were EXCELLENT.\r I ordered a skirt steak and my wife had the free range chicken. These portions were so small that I could have eaten both without a problem and I'm not a big guy!!!\r Portions are like appteizers.\r If you go here eat befo... view more

Excellent variety

The food was wonderful, the restaurant was clean and had a soothing decor. We had a great dining experience. The seafood was the freshest I tasted and the fruit was perfectly ripe. I would highly recommend this restaurant to family & friends. I can't wait to go again!

Wonderful service!

Have been coming to this place for years and always love it! here's our routine...Friday nights, get there at around 8 or so, try to skip the Theatre rush, grab a seat at the bar, have one of the bartenders specialities, an Espresso Martini (yum), then get a table near the jazz duo. Have a relaxed dinner listining to the great music, then back to the bar for some coffee and dessert. waddle to a taxi. Our waitress on ... view more
