THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Tre Scalini Restaurant Review

: Three steps lead to some authentic Italian cooking in a typically South Philadelphia atmosphere. The seven- table downstairs room is a pleasant jumble of mirrors and wood panels, with everyone talking at once and sampling from each other’s plates. It’s a mom-and-pop operation, but they serve some surprisingly restrained cuisine---sauces are consistently light and applied sparingly. Huge, fat mussels are just kissed by a tomato broth, homemade squares of papardelle are merely slicked with tomatoes and mushrooms. You get lots of mushrooms with the juicy veal chop, while tiny quail only bear a dusting of fresh rosemary and sage, and come with roasted potatoes on the side. Bring an appropriate bottle of Italian wine, and dig in. Leave room for the superior tiramisu, sorbets and ice creams.
