Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Tagliatelle al ragu di coniglio
$$$, Outdoor Seating, Italian, East Passyunk Crossing
"I love the addicting cheesy bread Le Virtù starts you off with. I ask for extra and use it to mop up this bone-sticking rabbit ragu chef Joe Cicala tosses with fresh tagliatelle."
Affettati misti
$$$, Outdoor Seating, Italian, East Passyunk Crossing
"This salumi platter is amazing, and it starts with great pigs from one of my favorite farms, Green Meadow. All of it (coppa, duck, prosciutto, etc.) is made in-house with a ton of skill and knowledge. Any salumi Le Virtù is offering is great, so get it all."
