    Having been born and raised in Philadelphia, I am no stranger to the South Philly BYOB restaurant, but this concept in non-existent where I live now, so when I get a chance to get back home, I try to find one I've never eaten at before, and this time found a true Diamond in the rough.

    I small, corner property right at Broad and Porter streets in the heart of South Philly, Scannicchio's was typical looking from the outside, but it's food was nothing typical on the inside.

    What makes it most enjoyable for me is the people that I watch dining around me. These are people that I grew up around. Families talking about other family members. Two guys in Phillies caps sharing their thoughts on the way the World Series is going. This adds to the ambience, and the realness of what growing up Italian in a large city is like.

    all in all, a perfect experience, start to finish.
