Rated 5 out of 5 by The staff was very pleasant and friendly-being professional at all times. We arrived early not knowing the opening time was 5:00pm and the gentleman told us if we came back around 4:30pm he would take us because they should be ready to serve us. it is a byob-so he informed us of that and told us where the nearest wine and spirit store was located. Also he informed us if we wanted mixed drinks and had the ingredients they would mix it for us all at no charge. We will have added Chiarella's to our list of fine establishments and recommend it to others. The food portions were good. I had the steak which was tender and well done. My friend had the chicken pom. and she said the tamato sauce was better than other restaurants. Thumbs up for Chiarella's. Oct 20, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by I had boneless pork with vinegar. It was one of the specials, seemed like an original dish and was fabulous. A bit pricey at $24. It included lots of mushrooms, hot long peppers and polenta. My companion had Veal Marsala and loved it. We also shared a freshly made tomato salad and a mixed plate of terrific crostini, including marinated mushrooms, white beans and chicken livers. We loved eating on the sidewalk, just like Italy! Our waitress, Kelly, was lovely, personable, efficient and lots of fun. Her recommendations were right on. According to Kelly, everything is fresh, and they don't even have a freezer, except for a small one for ice cream. Coupon & BYOB were pluses. Chiarella's is at Passyunk Square in South Philly's Little Italy.According to Tommy, the owner, business has been very disappointing. We were there on a beautiful Thursday evening in September. There were few customers. I don't get it. Sep 19, 2014
