First, here’s some background on East Falls
for the newcomers!
A masterful Italian BYO from the renowned chef, Franco Faggi. Faggi has a long history in the Philadelphia area, having most recently owned and operated Franco’s Trattoria on Ridge Avenue in East Falls in the space now occupied by In Riva. The restaurant stays fairly busy, and Fiorino’s dining room does not include a waiting area, so reservations are “pretty much a must,” said Faggi.
As for the food, “this is the type of cuisine I know,” said Faggi. “This is the food that I grew up eating.” For the dishes at Fiorino, Faggi drew inspiration from his own experience, both from growing up in Italy and from working in a variety of different restaurants over the course of his career in Italy, Bermuda, and the United States.
"Though from nearby Mount Airy, I have brought a small bit of Italy to the neighborhood, providing a comfortable environment, comprehensible menu, and affordable prices, all with a smile. During this time, I am grateful to have been embraced by the community, especially the residents of East Falls, many of whom I have developed friendships with that will last a lifetime." - Franco

David seized this stroke of luck and assembled a team of the industry’s finest to reincarnate the LeBus that Philadelphians remember and love.
