Arpeggio, Spring House, review or comments?

Trying to find a wood fired brick oven Pizza. Was about to plan a trip to Tacconellis down in Kensington that Ive heard a lot about. Then I bought Philly Mag, Best of... and there was an ad for Arpeggio.. Any body been? Hows the Pizza?

  1. I love Arpeggio, we go there at least twice a month for their pizza. The Arpeggio is our favorite - grilled eggplant, roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes. They offer a whole wheat crut which is fabulous. Its a nice restaurant, not a pizza place. But you can bring a bottle of wine, sit outside and enjoy a yummy pizza. Its different than Taconellis which I see as a bit more old school and more of a traditional pizza place, but very good. I say try both!

      I agree with AmblerGirl. Arpeggio is a consistently excellent, casual restaurant. Everything on the menu (over the years I've eaten everything on the menu) is delicious. Almost everyone I know loves Arpeggio.

        I'll add my vote for the Arpeggio pizza, as well as the Arpeggio salad, and the pesto chicken. Really, I can't think of anything we've ordered there that wasn't good, and we've been going there since about 6 months after they opened at the original location. The BYOB is also a draw for us, since we can be bring a $25-$30 bottle of wine that would be 2 1/2 to 3 times that price elsewhere. It's become our "I don't feel like cooking, I don't want to go anywhere" place for take-out now that we're only 12 minutes away!

      2. I've always enjoyed everything as well. The fried calamari salad rocks!

        2. Wow- I got to go. thanks everyone

          1. yes..great place...wonderful vegetarian creamy lentil soup and also great middle eastern platters....hummous...baba ganoush...grape leaves..etc

            1. We go to Arpeggio at least once a week. The food is fabulous! I agree with CP about the calamari salad. I have had their pizza often and it is delicious. I also think their falafel is decent.
