how many people? I just went to Philly last weekend and had a really fantastic dinner for cheap cheap cheap, but it was a small restaurant. Zavino – billed as a wine bar and pizzeria.


But seriously, so yum! I’m not from philly so I’m pretty useless otherwise 🙂

I was just researching this yesterday, even though I don’t really need to worry about it for another year.

If you want to keep it reasonably priced, your best bet is to have it at a BYOB. That way, you can bring some wine along and not have to pay the inflated restaurant prices.

Radicchio and Il Cantuccio are two that come to mind, if you don’t mind heading to the northern part of Old City, or to Northern Liberties.

I had my rehearsal dinner at Maggianno’s and though it is national chain the food was incredible and it was ALOT of food. I think it worked out to be $30-35 per person which was appetizers, salad, pasta, entrees, dessert, soda and included floral centerpieces. Our guests raved about the food and we were enough below our minimum to get wine as well.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Aqua. It’s a BYOB, Pan-Asian restaurant. We had the entire upstairs to ourselves. Food was delicious and worked out to be $25 per person – and we ordered a feast!

It’s a pretty casual restaurant so if you’re looking for a fancy place, this is probably not the place for you.

We are having our rehearsal at La Fontana Della Citta, located at 17th and Spruce.  It is a byob, they also have a separate room for our party which is nice.  Pricing is affordable, and the food is delicious!

I’m not sure what you consider reasonably priced, but one of our favorite restaurants is Spasso’s down in Olde City. I know you were saying “downtown” so I’m not sure if you meant Center City or not. Spasso’s has delicious Italian food and I think is pretty reasonably priced for dinner.

Good luck!
