    La Viola and Branzino are two. Not sure whether Caffe Casta Diva serves lunch.

        When I lived in Philly, I had two bosses who were both Italian and both lawyers (one also a judge)--one swore by D'Angelo's (20th and Rittenhouse) and the other (judge) by La Buca (7th and Locust).

        I just loved when they treated as both are fabulous :)
