Trattoria Giuseppe - Philly Eats

I believe it's about time I blog about our Spring Break trip to Philadelphia back in the beginning of April. We stayed in Phoenixville, PA - thanks to the very generous hospitality of a lovely family of my friend, Lynne. Everyday, they introduced us to great dining spots to eat and interesting places to visit. Trattoria Giuseppe was the first restaurant Dom and Felice took us to, as soon as we arrived their home. It was definitely one of the best Italian place I've been to!

Their menu is so big that it took me a while to decide what to order. The price is reasonable and it's BYOB, with no corkage fee. Just remember to bring a bottle or two of your favorite wines, and big appetite since food portion is pretty generous.

We had quite a few of their salads for the table to share. They were all amazing! (Above) Special Salad: Arugula Salad with mixed fruits, fresh mozzarella cheese, and limoncello vinaigrette.

Brasaola con Arrugola Parmiggiano: thinly sliced cured beef topped with arugula and Parmesan cheese, dressed with oil and lemon juice. Awesomeness..

Roasted Artichokes: sliced prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and green olives, drizzled with white truffle oil. Out of the world!

Calamari Fritti: fried squid, with spicy marinara sauce

Insalata al Prosciutto: mixed salad, tomatoes, olives, with house dressing and Parma ham.

Penne Puttanesca: penne with fresh chopped tomatoes, garlic, capers, olives, anchovies, and hot pepper. My favorite pasta dish.

Spaghetti Alle Vongole: Garlic, extra virgin olive oil, white wine, clams, and parsley.

Seafood Special

Spaghetti Carbonara: cream, bacon, egg, and parmesan cheese. Classically delicious..

Tiramisu: layers of expresso drenched sponge cake divided by mascapone cream, dusted with cocoa powder. Love it!

Chocolate Truffle: Zabaione cream center, surrounded by chocolate gelato and caramelized hazelnuts, topped with cocoa powder. Together with a cup of cappuccino - nice ending to the meal!
