The atmosphere is amazing. Beautiful subtle colors, clean. The waitstaff is personable and knows how to take care of customers. And the food was fresh, homemade and simply amazing.
I had a surprise birthday dinner here for my girlfriend’s 30th. The food and service was amazing and everyone thought I hit it out of the park with the spot.
The lobster mascarpone gnocchi is to die-for as well as the grilled romaine salad and the bolognese gnocchi. We are completely in love with Ristorante Aroma and recommend this intimate Italian restaurant experience to anyone who loves a great Italian dish with excellent service at truly reasonable prices!
I recently hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner for my son at Ristorante Aroma. The evening was wonderful! We used the outdoor side space for our cocktail hour with passed appetizers and then the guests were seated for dinner in their lovely restaurant. The food was plentiful and delicious and the wait service was excellent. I highly recommend Ristorante Aroma for your next Philly party!
Fantastic BYOB. It’s definitely the best Italian food around. Don’t miss the homemade, melt in your mouth, gnocchi and grilled octopus.
My absolute favorite authentic Italian BYOB in Philly! Everything from the mozzarella to the bread to the limoncello is made in house, and the quality always delivers
This was one of the best BYO experiences I’ve had in Philadelphia. The plating was elegant the the food itself absolutely delightful. Don’t miss out on this local gem!
Great atmosphere, top-notch service, and scrumptious food. Highly recommended.
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!
