Tre Scalini

Lari Robling visits Tre Scalini in its new digs at 1915 E. Passyunk Avenue and finds that the hearty dishes of Franca DiRenzo, her daughter Francesca Kauffman and son-in-law Michael still satisfy.

Although the new digs make it feel less like dining in someone’s home and more like a typical restaurant, it is still the kind of South Philly neighborhood place where the owner’s baby is passed from table to table among the regulars. And when things slow down, the Kauffmans will stop by to chat up the newcomers because underneath the “McMansion” newness, it remains a family neighborhood place.
