The Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia » Best Italian Restaurants in Philadelphia: Victor Café
Lady and the Tramp and Rocky Balboa aren’t movies that you’d usually mention in the same breath, but sit down for just one meal at this South Philly institution and you’ll have both on your mind before the tiramisu hits the table. For starters, Victor Café’s dining room is featured in Sly’s 2006 comeback Rocky flick. And the charming operatic interludes provided by the cheery servers every 20 minutes (they ring a bell and introduce themselves before breaking into arias) will make you want to spaghetti-noodle-kiss whomever you happen to be sharing your dinner with.
Don’t miss: The crespelle capriccio—smooth, rich crabmeat in a béchamel sauce, rolled into crisp prosciutto.
