1312 Spruce St.
Philadelphia, PA, 19107, United States
TEL: (215) 732-3478

Considered one of the best Italian restaurants in the nation, this fine-dining landmark is usually booked two months in advance. James Beard Award-winning chef Marc Vetri studied his craft in Bergamo, Italy before opening this namesake restaurant on the first floor of a brownstone in Washington Square West. The 40-seat dining room is rustic and intimate, with hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams, and candlelit tables. The tasting menu (the only menu offered) includes such specialties as spinach gnocchi with brown butter, and roasted baby goat with stone-ground polenta. Dishes are paired with selections from an award-winning, mostly Italian wine cellar.

Insider Tip:

Vetri is within a 10-minute walk of the Philadelphia Theatre Company, Walnut Street Theatre, and Kimmel Center for Performing Arts, making it an excellent choice for pre-show dining.
