    Amazing authentic Italian with excellent handmade pasta. I got the Parpadelle and it was delicious. My brother runs a high profile scratch Italian kitchen out of Austin, TX and Gran Caffe gave it a run for his money. Can't recommend enough & will absolutely return!

    It was the first time I was there. I made my decision with online reviews and believe they fell slightly short, expressing just how great of a restaurant I selected. Most enjoyable in all aspects!

    Great hidden gem in Philadelphia. Nice spot to entertain customers. Menu offers options for everyone with nice regional focus each week. Servers are friendly and helpful with recommendations. Delicious wine selection to pair with your meal. Plan for dessert and the gelato selection is amazing!

    I’m in Philly visiting from Chicago. We have some amazing Italian restaurants in Chicago, so I know great Italian. Gran Caffe L’Aquila is off the charts! Have I dined here every day for the last 3 days? Yes! Will I be back again today? YES! Highly recommend the Spaghetti Vongole, Parma Sandwich and Gelato. They have private dining nooks outdoors that are very fun to sit at. Everyone in this restaurant is friendly and so warm. If you are looking for your new favorite place - You found it!

    I brought my sister (who lives in Texas) to The Gran Caffe for my own private “pasta challenge” between The Gran Caffe (in Philadelphia) and a well-respected Neapolitan pizza / pasta restaurant in Manhattan. The Caffe won…sorry NY.
