“An Abruzzese culinary tradition”
The inspiration for Le Virtù (The Virtues) comes from our experiences at the tables of family, friends and farm restaurants all over Abruzzo. Every dish we prepare is rooted in or inspired by Abruzzese culinary tradition, ingredients or philosophy. We serve the cuisine of the shepherds, farmers and fishermen of Italy's wildest and most unspoiled region. It's bold, honest and unpretentious. We source all we can from the "terra" surrounding Philadelphia: naturally raised pork from Berks County; lamb, chicken and rabbit from Lancaster County; produce from rural New Jersey and Pennsylvania. What we can't find locally, we import from Abruzzo: artisanal honey and cheeses (some of the rarest in America); L'Aquila saffron; extra virgin olive oil for finishing dishes; dried pastas (including a gluten-free option); even the flour we use to make our fresh pasta.
With his laser focus on Italy's Abruzzo region, chef Joe Cicala has raised the bar for Italian food in South Philly. The housemade charcuterie, especially the spicy n'duja, and fresh pasta dishes are a special draw.
