"Small, friendly, homey atmosphere, attentive service. Food was pleasant, at times even better. Had an early dinner so quiet as well."

Known for dishes that evoke distant places and a cooking style that draws on slow, subtle, and labor-intensive techniques, Executive Chef Nicolaus Balla has a decidedly global culinary approach. <br /><br />Balla employs his research into artisan techniques such as sausage preparation, cheese making, pickling and preserving to produce those authentic homemade flavors. His preference is for approachable and full-flavored dishes – what he calls “good social food.” The menu pairs naturally with Tartine’s bread by renown baker Chad Robertson, which serves both as inspiration and accompaniment for many of the dishes. <br /><br /><br />

"Interesting and tasty interpretation and presentation of Mexican-style food. Mostly small dishes provide an opportunity to try a wide variety. Thin corn crust mushroom flat bread delicious and blackberry/sponge cake dessert was outstanding."

Lido’s menu is Northern Italian. The menu can be described as fresh, simple, and delicious. Flavors are layered so that each one stands out but does not compete with others in the dish. <br /><br />The food is organic and local whenever possible and all poultry and meats are from farms that treat animals humanely. <br /><br />The ambiance is modish but relaxed. We look forward to seeing you soon.<br />

"Everything was very good, from roasted cauliflower, lobster ravioli, crab cake, snapper, to delicious desserts. Very attentive, warm service in a crowded restaurant. And despite the Open Table reservation not appearing on their list, the restaurant found a place and were very pleasant about it."

Since 1997, Pizzicato, the Olde City Landmark brings the robust flavors of Italy with hand crafted pastas, pizza, and truly authentic Italian cuisine. Our chefs use only the freshest ingredients with an emphasis on locally grown and produced ingredients. For over 15 years, we have taken great pride bringing authentic rustic Italian cuisine to our friends and loyal patrons in olde city. We are proud of our longevity, but always believe in "keeping it fresh" with new flavors as well as interpreting time honored classics! We hope if you are visiting us from another locale, or across town, in our beloved Philadelphia, you'll drop in and enjoy lunch, dinner, or cocktails with us!

"The food here varies from good to very good, as does the friendly service. A recent beet salad was excellent, as was the onion soup, while trout was tasty but overcooked. It can get very noisy in such close quarters, especially if one patron is very loud."
