This is a capable traditional South Philly Italian eatery. All the usual staples are there, pasta, veal, fish, etc. We liked the mussels in red sauce quite a bit, the Rigatoni Mama Mia was very good as well. The food wasn't exceptional but it was quite acceptable.. This is your traditional Checkered tablecloth Italian place without the tablecloths.
Criniti's has wonderful food and is great for place for family value too. The meals are a steal when you compare the size of the plates to the cost. The new location is much better than the old location and provides a more spacious setting. Not very fancy so any type of dress is acceptable. Matt D.
