People have found themselves desperately circling every corner in town in search of that “perfect little restaurant.”

Well, consider the search over.

Allow me to introduce you to Italian Bistro; the best in casual dining that Broad Street has to offer.

Nestled within the panache metropolitan district of Center City’s Avenue of the Arts, an area synonymous with art, music and culture, this Italian eatery is the ideal locale for any occasion.

The atmosphere inside is colorful and lively, yet friendly and intimate.

The menu is overflowing with an assortment of traditional Italian fare and eclectic homemade creations, at prices that are completely affordable, even for the frugal college student (most pasta dishes are priced between $9-$16).

The restaurant serves a fantastic house salad, which will undoubtedly be the tastiest you’ve ever eaten.

Appetizers such as Italian nachos, baked onion soup and Calamari Fritti are delectable starters.

For the health-conscious eater, the menu offers dishes such as farfalle caprese, comprised of bowtie pasta, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, grilled eggplant and garlic.

Along with standard Italian dishes like lasagna, ravioli and eggplant parmigiana, a variety of meaty dishes cater to the insatiable carnivorous appetite.

Try the Pollo al Ferri, which is grilled chicken breast marinated in olive oil, garlic and rosemary.

Rosto Misto, a savory dish prepared with Italian sausage, roasted pork and chicken and served on a bed of roasted potatoes, is sure to satisfy any meat-lover.

Whichever scrumptious entrée is chosen, be sure to leave room for dessert, as the selection of sweets-including cream puffs, Reese’s Peanut Butter cake and vanilla-chocolate mousse cake, is irresistible.

Whether it would be for a romantic date, a night out with friends or simply a break from bland campus food, visit the Italian Bistro for a satisfying dining experience.

It is trendy, family-friendly and affordable. All of these elements come together beautifully to make what is indeed “the perfect little restaurant.” Buon Appetito!
