Le Castagne, Philadelphia
Finally got the chance to use my Daily Candy deal, $35 for $75 worth of food and drink. Upon stepping into Le Castagne, I was getting that 70’s steakhouse dark vibe because of those string lights lined against the wood panes. It’s pretty distracting to me since I’m more into clean modern lines. Nevertheless, the food was terrific !!
I was there at 6pm and enjoyed dinner as the crowd trickled in at 7:30pm. They were hugging and air kissing the hostess and servers and were welcomed like they’re family. It’s so Italian.
