East Falls: Recommendations?

I know that Center City is just a hop, skip and a jump away... but, alas, medical school doesn't allow much time for eating out--or anything else! Any hidden gems in or within a few minutes (literally) of East Falls? I'm game for any type of ethnic food and enjoy both hole-in-the-wall places with great food and fancy pants places with great service to match. BYOYs and restaurants with liquor are both fine as well. Anything but chains restaurants, really! Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

  1. i'm curious about this too.
    the only place down there i've eaten at was Johnny Manana's, and the food there didn't impress me that much. still a fun place, but seemed better for drinking and snacks than lunch or dinner.

    1. Frankie's Trattoria under the Twin Bridges was good, moderately priced Italian

        1. Try Casselli's on Ridge Avenue in Roxborough. The food is excellent. I never had a bad meal there.

          1. Try TOmmy Gunn's for BBQ at the base of Ridge at Main St in Manayunk.

            Murphy's Bar a skip up HenryAve (past D'Allesandros) for that divey dont care what i eat feeling. cheap brew.
