We were leaving the Philly airport heading home after a 3 week vacation out west. Our son picked us up and everyone was hungry and we were tired of meat! A flew clicks on the phone led us to the wonderful restaurant. It appears to be a local neighborhood spot; on the small side. Easy on the street parking. We shared the baked clams appetizer: tender, whole and well seasoned. Our diners had fried shrimp, a swordfish special and salmon, along with a few beers. I highly recommend the pasta with the white wine garlic sauce as your side....delicious!!! The food was all excellent as was the service. The restaurant has a warm, community feel with what looked like "regulars" chatting at the bar. Despite the hometown feel, this place is not inexpensive...we felt it was worth it. Too bad we do not live closer or we would be "regulars" at this terrific spot.

An Italian-Jewish Delicatessen in the heart of beautiful Lansdowne, PA, just minutes from Philadelphia. Our food is made with love from all natural and local ingredients whenever possible. Chef Laura Frangiosa has been cooking since she was two years old and her mother propped her up on the counter with a bowl of scraps to help with dinner. Instead of watching cartoons, she watched cooking shows on Saturday mornings, and she was serving up dinners and special events to friends and family by her teens. With an Italian lineage and formative years spent up on the Main Line of Philadelphia's suburbs-a long standing bastion of Jewish delis-cooking is literally in her blood. She brings these years of experience, knowledge, and the joy of feeding people to The Avenue Delicatessen. Over the years she has experienced all facets of the food service industry. From catering at large and small scale, to fine dining service, to sales in the seafood and bread fields, and time at the acclaimed Bistrot La Minette in South Philadelphia, Laura has a deep and fundamental understanding of how to make people happy with her food. Recently she has served as chef in residence at Audrey Claire's COOK, a demonstration kitchen in Rittenhouse Square where she cooked her own brand of Italian-Jewish food as well as custom menus for some of the city's most discriminating diners. At The Avenue Delicatessen, Laura combines her authentic homestyle Italian food with a Jewish bent, bringing together the two great American deli traditions. Any given day you'll find her lighting up the dining room with her charm and smile, or working the line churning out favorites like her signature Jewish Wedding Soup, Reuben Arancini, cheesecake, and more.
The Avenue Deli has consistently delicious food, and they serve breakfast until 3 pm! Everything is fresh and delicious. They buy from the local farmers market. Waitstaff is great. Chef is better. You'll probably run into your neighbors ; )

Pica's pizza is unique and fantastic! Not especially thin and not brick oven, Pica's has a conveyor belt type oven that cranks out delicious pizza. The full menu offers many, many other options including many Italian specific dinners. There are specials on weekdays. We are BIG FANS of Pica's!

Located in the heart of Lansdowne (PA), THE ICERY specializes in artisan GELATO & hand-churned ITALIAN WATER ICE with an extended menu in other mouth-watering frozen delights.
Had a hankering for an ice-creamy treat on a warm early summer night and stopped by this little shop in Lansdowne. Really good gelato - similar to the gelato we had during our trip to Rome and Florence. Interesting flavors. Caramel pear mascarpone and banana and thyme were out favorites. Friendly staff, bright, cheery store.

The Painted Tea Cup is a quaint place with friendly staff and great service. The variety of teas is extensive! The food was delicious and very filling. We weren't given a food menu so the menu for afternoon tea was a surprise. The Rose tea with dessert was amazing. It smelled like a bouquet of roses.

Been going by to Leo's for decades and every time their cheesesteaks and burgers are awesome. Never been disappointed. By far the BEST cheesesteak in the Philly region. The large is pricey but it's your call to spend more $$ and upgrade from a regular. Wish they'd offer coupons.

I grew up buying pretzels for recess in school for a nickel and Bernie's takes me to "Memory Lane" when I have a "Bernie Pretzel". I enjoy them warm and dipping them in cheese OR CHOCOLATE gives new meaning to "YUMMY".

We had dinner here on a Tuesday night and good thing we made reservations as they were very busy. We were warmly greeted by the owner/hostess and seated on arrival. We started with the portobello mushrooms with melted cheeses and rose sauce. Unique and very good. Bread was also brought to the table. Butter and Olive oil - but no balsamic vinegar. We also had bruschetta, antipasto, and marinated carrots. My wife had the special - lobster and seafood with cavatelli pasta in a rose sauce and I had the Vitello Mare e Monti, veal medallions with jumbo shrimp, prosciutto with cheese and a mushroom demiglasse. Everything was great, timed well and the service was very good. A real bonus was being able to bring our own wine which they allow and do not charge a corkage fee. This makes for a great meal at a very reasonable total cost. My wife appreciated they left the small bowl of parmigiana-reggiano cheese on the table when the main courses were served. We shared a chocolate lovers cake for dessert that was very good. Overall this was a great dinner in a warm atmosphere at very good prices.

I sometimes visit for their great cinnamon buns but have also purchased other items. Everything is fresh baked daily except Monday and Tuesday. It is family owned and their care shows in the quality of their finished goods.

Not your average menu here, first of all a brick oven with grilled food and pizza coming out if the wood burning fire oven. Smokey flavors , with great ingredients make the food outstanding. Nice cocktail menu with really intelligent bar staff, and a good selection og beer
