THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Locanda Del Ghiottone Restaurant Review

: Chef Giuseppe is a legend in Philadelphia. Outspoken, iconoclastic, opinionated, but a very good cook, he has rebuilt his little Old City restaurant after a tragic fire in 1997, and he is back, billing it the only authentic Italian restaurant in the USA. We may quarrel with this, but not with the quality of his food, which is always fresh and inventive. The place has atmosphere to spare, and does look like the sort of ramshackle, festooned place you might find in old neighborhoods in Rome. Bring a bottle of wine and try a sampler plate that includes the crêpes with wild mushrooms and the stuffed clams, for starters. Under pastas, there’e black taglioline with fresh tuna, and penne alla pecoraia with a béchamel sauce. The osso buco is earthy and delicious, as is the rabbit stew with risotto. Giuseppe is not shy about his food, so mangia!
