50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013 » zeppoli_philadelphia_best_restaurants
This Collingswood BYO describes itself as “very intimate.” What they mean is “extremely small”—only 35 seats, so getting in at prime time isn’t always easy, even on a weeknight. And once you do get in, you’ll spend a fair amount of time jockeying for floor space with the person at the table behind you. But if you can endure all that, you’ll be treated to delicious, expertly conceived and completely un-fussy Italian plates like house-made tagliatelle topped with bottarga (a Sicilian cured fish roe), grilled swordfish or stewed rabbit.
Behind the Music: Chef Joey Baldino’s last job was as chef de cuisine at Vetri.
You Should Probably Know: That Collingswood police take the whole DUI thing very seriously. If you’re driving from Philly and bringing your own, mind the consumption.
