The Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia » Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia: Amis
The third member in the holy trinity of Marc Vetri’s Truly Italian Restaurants is definitely the partier of the bunch—all convivial and lively and loud. It’s almost impossible not to get in the spirit at Amis. First, there are those little counter seats that put you so close to the action, you can reach out and touch a chef (though they really prefer that you don’t). Second, there are the rustic, lively dishes (swordfish meatballs! Pig’s trotter arancini!) that are designed to be ordered en masse, then nibbled at and fought over by you and yours.
Don’t miss: That pig’s trotter arancini (to share) and the pappardelle with oxtail ragu (to keep for yourself).
