Perfectly Romantic and Cozy

I had the best time with my boyfriend at Langostini!
The service was friendly and tentative. The mussels were delicious. I had the Penne Special with shrimp and crabmeat in pink sause. It was magnificant. My boyfriend very much enjoyed the chicken Rollitini. It was the perfect place to wine and dine with my boyfriend.

Love having Langostini around the corner!

I live a stones throw from Langostini and I was so excited to learn that it's as good as it looks like it would be! If my boyfriend and I don't feel like cooking or going very far from the house we grab a bottle of wine and walk over to Langostini, every dish I've tried has been fantastic and they'll make anything you want to order if you don't see it on the menu. The taglietelle with mushrooms and Pancetta in pink sauce is so simple and delicious. The gnocchi is fresh and tasty, and I always get the Caprese salad which is always so fresh and amazing. We almost always bring house guests when we have them! Definitely worth a try. And if you're coming in from outside the city it's Easy on/off 95 and there's plenty of parking in the neighborhood.

Fantastic Italian

This is a very tasty Italian restaurant, intimate and for some reason, very easy to get a table without a reservation. Each time I've been I've ordered something different, and haven't been let down yet. Truly an exceptional restaurant.

great italian byob

Went on a tuesday evening and we greeted warmly by our waitress, who was very attentive. The dining space is intimate but relaxing. I felt like I was at my italian aunt's house if I had one. Not pretentious at all. I had the spaghetti and meatballs (on promotion) - delicious. My wife had an arugula salad and the eggplant fettuchini which was fantastic. We were very happy to find a classy, yet relaxed and affordable italian byo to go to prior to a movie at UA riverview.

What a great find hidden away under I-95 in south Philly

Went this past Saturday evening for the first time after being recommended by a co-worker. If you are a foodie, this is the place for you!!! This 40 seat outstanding restaurant is a wonderful destination. After parking your car under I-95, you open the door into this quaint Italian restaurant owned and operated by the nicest lady. Every meal is cooked to order and from appetizers to entrees to desserts, the food is top notch.

Delicious Freshly made Italian Food!

We had a delightful time at Langostini's. The appetizers were terrific. We all agreed that the veal picata, the lobster ravioli and the veal parmigiana were the best we ever had. We will be going back.

Great delicious food! and very affordable for its great taste!

It is absolutly one of the most amazing restaurants in Philly that I must visit each time travelling in Philly! The most delicious pastas with mussels! The best desserts and the best service! When I go to Langostinos, I feel I am at home with a great arm meal and great serving staff! :)

best BYOB! cozy and elegant atmosphere!

Langostini is a perfect cozy restaurant! We love the home-made food and the pastas which makes us come back again and again. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is always great; we love gnocchi and seafood dishes, grilled calamari, clams and mussels. The weekly specials, like eggplant parmigiano are awesome! Our favorite ?Amore?cake ? triple layer chocolate mascarpone cream cake, homemade, absolutely delicious!! Good prices and BYOB makes it a great value!!!! The nearest wine shop is just a few blocks away, lots of free public parking!!! Reservations are recommended: on website, easy!

Me and my boyfriend go out to eat all the time and this is one of the best Italian BYOBs we've been to yet!! The service was excellent!!! Leading with Irene the cook/server/hostess/EVERYTHING!!! SHE IS AMAZING!!!! Then followed by her beautiful daughter helping out!!! The restaurant is cute and quiet but the food is out of this world.
The caesar salad looked like it had no dressing on it but i tried it anyway.... it was so light, but BURSTING with flavor!! SO GOOD! The soup--one of the best homemade wedding soup i've ever had! Irene allowed us to mix the clams and the mussels for an appetizer but if you like spice-GET the spicy marinara, it was delicious!! The special of the night was eggplant parm, which i got, it was almost like eggplant lasagna layered with cheese and baked, it was so cheesy and melty and delicious.... My boyfriend got veal with procuitto which was pounded flat--we heard Ireene back there pounding that veal-- which he LOVED! AND so did i & i normally dont like veal!
Then we had to get dessert, he got a cannoli which was homemade, and i got the Amore Cake!!!
Freaking awesome homemade LOVE CAKE!! IF you love it then COME HERE!!!!

We will definitely be back !!!!!! Oh yeah .... AND GOOD PRICES!!! $$

GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! TRUST ME!!!!!!!!!!

Cozy BYOB with good food!

Six couples drove from the Main Line for dinner. We wanted a BYOB and found this place online.
We had a few bottles of wine and good food. The appetizers were delicious.....especially the grilled calamari, caprese and ceasar salads. Each of us enjoyed our entrees as well. The seafood with linguini and homemade gnocchi were yummy. The place was small and cozy and the service was great. Irene, the owner, introduced herself. We would definitely go back again.

Best home made gnocchi !!!

Langostini, new name, known as Langostino's -renovated, cozy, relaxing and friendly BYOB place, great food! Best home made gnocchi!! Every entree but one, the Langostini plate, is under $20 and unlike almost all other center city and South Philly restaurants, there is plenty of free public parking! Recommended! You can make a reservation on their web site .

just ok

would have been quaint if food was better, instead left feeling place was just small and plain.
Had read that Mussels were very good, we thought they were bland and sauce was tasteless.
All entrees were just ok and lacked much flavor.

Too many good BYOBs around town to go back there

Great Date Place on a Thursday night

Not only was I highly impressed by the copious amounts of food and the variety of ways to seve it, but also the prices. Incredibly affordable. I wanted to take my date out for a spontaneous and special night out on a Thursday...we had our big bottle of wine and were ready. I hadn't made a reservation, but instead of giving us that 'look' when we said we didn't have reservations, we got the 2-seater by the door. The location didn't matter. We sipped our own wine, weren't hassled by our waiter and again, the food was amazing. I'll definitely be back, but this time will make reservations!

Langostino's is an excellent neighborhood byob. My husband & I used to live around the corner & ate there quite often. Since we have moved, we still make it a point to go back. Great food, great service in a quaint setting. Try the grilled calamari!

a secret about philly

Hidden deep in South Philly on Front and Morris lies the best tasting langostinos in America. If you've never had a langostino, it looks like a giant shrimp/crawfish and tastes as good or better than lobster. Someone in the group must order either grilled langostinos or the daily langostino special (the pink sauce is unbelievable!). It's a small quaint cozy place where the host just might remember your name the second time you come. Go here for the meal and BYOB.
