ISO dinner following Phillies afternoon game - not steaks/hoagies

Taking our elderly dad to a game and looking for a convenient place to have dinner afterward. He is suffering memory loss but still loves a good meal. Any place nearby (we don't mind driving) that is not a bar with steaks/hoagies? It's OK if the place has a bar, just looking for a quiet atmosphere--he gets confused easily. Oh, also no Asian, thanks!

  1. Popi's is not far from the ballpark and has decent Italian. It should be quiet enough for your dad. By the way, that's sweet of you to take your dad to a game, enjoy it!

    1. L'Angolo is an Italian BYOB near Broad and Porter - they open at 5:00. Paradiso is open from lunch on most days, is slightly upscale - but not "dressy" when I have been there for late lunch (khaki's OK)- on East Passyunk. Not sure about the hours of other E. Passyunk restaurants, but you are near the ballpark there. Enjoy the game - my Mom loved a good meal, my siblings would always say she wouldn't eat, then she'd tell me she just didn't like the food as she ate her way through some chow-worthy food!

      1. A second to Bigley's recommendation of L'Angolo.
        Very good food, small, cozy and not noisy. Parking can be difficult, but we always can find a spot on Broad St, which is only half a block away.
