Best of Philly

2015 Restaurant to Show Off to Your L.A. Friends

Il Pittore

Screw you and your vegan, fair-trade, farm-to-table almond milk. There are some things we’ll always do better on the East Coast, and Italian food is one of them. The ironic thing? Il Pittore looks like every taste-of-Tuscany dining room scattered across the Left Coast, but the food is so much richer, smarter and more soulful than virtually anything you’d find at any of those “lighter is better” places.
