In the heart of Philadelphia lies an Italian hotspot that has been called
the best Italian restaurant in the country. Vetri Ristorante has foodies flocking in from all over, including famed Italian chef Mario Batali, to sample the culinary stylings of chef Marc Vetri in his tiny 35 seat restaurant.
Choosing the finest seasonal ingredients from local farm markets, Vetri keeps cooking to a minimum, using the simplest techniques, allowing the fresh food to shine. Highlights include the intense spinach gnocchi and the roasted goat that made New York Times critic Frank Miller say it was the best plate of food during his stay in Philadelphia.
With its loyal clientele and limited seating, it's a great idea to make reservations in advance, this special place books up fast.
