This restaurant has an excellent menu. Many different entrees to chose from and you can make changes to suit your taste without a hassle. They have excellent chocolate martini's. A good choice for pre-theater.

My wife and I dined at the Italian Bistro on Broad Street after seeing Grease. The food was satisfactory, the staff pleasant and efficient. What ruined our dining experience was the horrible odor of stale cigarette smoke that seemed to come off of every waiter that passed our table. I neglected to complain because our waiter was friendly and we were satisfied with him for the most part and didn't want him to be singled out when it was, in fact, every employee we had contact with that stunk like old stale cigarette smoke.

Pros: Decent food, friendly staff

Cons: Strong odor of tobacco on waiters

Had to wait at least 25 minutes for a table, even though we had made a reservation well in advance. The Hostesses were NOT seating customers in the order that they checked in. My daughter ordered a cheeseburger that was 1/3 of the size of the bun and hard as a rock! Not edible! Would not recommend the Italain Bistro!

had to wait at least 25 minutes for a table, even with a reservation. Hostesses were seating customers not inn the order in which they checked in even with same size parties. Cheeseburger for a child was 1/3 the size of the bun it came on, was hard as a rock, could not even cut it with a knife, unable to eat! Would not recommend!!

This is the Philadelphia outpost of a small family chain that started in South Jersey. Nice fresh creative dishes. Quality has suffered a bit as they have grown, but this is a nice convenient location in center city for happy hour or a pre-show meal at a reasonable price.

I was embarrassed after taking my father in-law to this restaurant. The menu was thin with little variety and over loaded with pasta dishes. I ordered the lobster bisque and found it to taste like paprika and cream. Probably the worst bisque I have ever had I would had rather eaten a canned bisque. The other meals were average and not nearly worth the absorbanent prices.

I strongly recommed this restuarant. I recently took my best friend to celebrate her birthday and we had a good time. The food was wonderful and our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was conducive to taking your time eating and having good conversation. To my firend's suprise the staff came to our table and sang happy birthday to her. I will definitaly be coming back again for dinner.

I went to the Italian Bistro with a friend, and was very disappointed with the food and service. We ordered calamari for an appetizer, which was way overcooked, and pasta for our entree which was terrible. After not touching our entrees, the waiter did not even ask us if we wanted it packed or if we even like it. I dont understand why people like this restaurant. There are so many great italian restaurants in Philadelphia, this not bein one.

We went for dinner before a show at the Academy of Music and we were very impressed. The atmosphere is excellent and the staff is so friendly and on the ball. Not to mention that food is very good and reasonably priced. We will definitely dine there again! But definitely make reservations, we had a bit of a wait for a seat.
