Whether you want to sit and eat a nice meal, grab a take out sandwich, purchase items to pass off as home cooked, or buy some party food, this is your place!!!!! O! Even if you just want to buy some great cheese or produce or other goodies. Everything here is so good it is nearly addictive. If we have any type of "pot luck" or tailgate type kid sports thing we are always asked to bring the chips and salsa from 320.
They have awesome homemade pasta sauce and frozen pasta. The soups are to die for. The salads are delicious. I personally can't get enough of the cheeses: the local ones and the imported ones.

Typical diner fare and atmosphere. Both the chicken croquettes and scrapple were bit over cooked and bread fell apart.

I visited Hobbs Coffee and liked the coffee. They offer a few coffee and pastry choices, along with juices and other bottled drinks. I liked the atmosphere-a bit loud-but the staff wasn't very friendly, so they should improve that!

Unique dining in an unassuming spot. 50 years going strong. Outdoor and indoor exquisite steak and seafood cuisine with unbelievably reasonable prices. Do not miss the opportunity to try a steak (my 8 oz Filet was surely 10 oz.) that fully cooks on a 700 degree cooking stone in front of you. Phenomenal! Great service.

After arriving back in Philadelphia, my wife took me to Frankie's on Fairview for dinner. This is a small place but the food was outstanding. We both ordered the meat loaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans. This was delicious folks, try it out yourselves.

I've been here more than once. Charming service, pricey but fine food. There are indoor and outdoor tables. Outdoors, there are some rattan cages that provide intimate dining while still being outside.Thank you for your feedback. I have shared your comments with our management and kitchen staff. We hope to see you in the future so we can continue to provide you with an excellent dining experience!

We went with 8 people. Seems almost everyone got something different and to my surprised it was great. The prices are more then fair and the portions are very generous. I haven't been in a while and it won't be a long before we return, It's more of an old style family pub/restaurant that is the best in the area.

Nice selection of healthy foods and drinks to purchase for home or take-out. Custom sandwiches available. I had the "Semester abroad" which had way tooooo much bread. Not a good choice. Great place for lunch- eat in or tables w umbrellas on the patio. Popular with students.

A contemporary approach to Southern Italian cuisine with ever changing innovations by Chef Chris Blasi.
Went last night with a friend after a long work day. Wanted a BYOB as friend had a fine bottle of cab. Have been here a while ago and liked it.
I ordered the lasagne and my friend ordered the gnocchi in a pesto sauce. My lasagne was spot on. Nice cheese on top, pasta and meat layers underneath. Extremely tasty and satisfying. My friend enjoyed his large bowl of gnocchi saying it was too good not to finish even though he was full after about eating three quarters of it.
The cab went well with my lasagne. I will order it again when I go back with my wife. I suspect she will order the same.
Good service and nice lively atmosphere. And, the prices are reasonable. No reason to dine at the over abundance of chain Italian restaurants when you have a local place that does it so much better.
Try it. You’ll like it.

The restaurant is very nice and cozy. Servers are very friendly. Food is delicious and portions are generous. Well-priced. Gets very crowded on weekends for dinner, so you will have a lengthy wait if you do not put yourself on the Wait List ahead of time (online or phone).
