The Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia » Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia: Zeppoli
Joey Baldino doesn’t cook anything that a thousand other chefs haven’t cooked before him. He just does it better than about 998 of them. Simple Sicilian flavors shine at Zeppoli, his homey Collingswood BYO, where tagliatelli with lemon and bottarga is redolent of a citrus grove perched above a fishing village, and spinach-and-ricotta gnocchi could melt in the warmth of your breath.
Don’t miss: His Sicilian stew—all saffron and swordfish and shellfish—or his whole roasted fish with artichoke hearts, which is unsurpassed on either side of the Delaware River.
