Overall
amazing!

My co-worker has been raving to me about the new chef at La Famiglia that has just moved here from Naples, Italy. So I thought it seemed appropriate to take her there for diner on Friday after work for her birthday. Fridays at our office are casual, we both had on jeans and a nice blouse, and at first I was worried that I would be under-dressed so I brought a change of clothes with me. My friend kept assuring me that I was fine so I went as I was. When I got there everyone was dressed casually so I immediately felt comfortable. It was a long week and the start of a long weekend so the first thing I did was look at the wine list, it was absolutely exquisite and we ordered what I’d say was one of the best bottles of wine I ever had. For diner I ordered the Vitello con Fontina, it was fabulous! The portion was huge so when I brought home the leftovers my husband had some, he was so impressed that he made reservations for this weekend!

General Info
The Sena family tradition of culinary excellence dates back to early 1947 when Carlo "Papa" Sena began to cook in postwar Naples. The family carried this experience across the Atlantic and opened La Famiglia in 1976 in the shell of a Colonial tea warehouse. With the help of his family, and a lot of hard work and dedication, Carlo turned La Famiglia into one of Philadelphia's top culinary institutions. Steeped in rich Italian tradition, La Famiglia has an international reputation as one of the finest examples of gourmet Italian cuisine to be served outside of Italy. That tradition continues with "Papa" Sena's sons Gino and Giuseppe and now grandson Carlo. Their award winning old world inspired menu with a touch of Napoletano, exquisite wine list and impeccable service makes for the most memorable dining experience in Philadelphia. La Famiglia has maintained a first-class image that its long-time patrons recall from the early days.
