I Googled best Italian in Philadelphia and this quaint gem was a result. I had the lobster gnocchi, which was the best I've had in all my travels.

I would highly recommend Aroma. We will go back. Curious why this place has not been on Philly Magazine's Top 50. It is definitely better than many of the restaurants that make the list each year!
