Fitler Square is a quiet, residential section of the Rittenhouse neighborhood. Among its beautiful town homes are restaurants tucked away that add to a romantic atmosphere not afforded too many other places in Philadelphia. Read ahead for our guide to the 10 best restaurants Fitler Square and its bordering streets have to offer.
Fitler Dining Room
Fitler Dining Room serves gourmet American cuisine in the heart of the ivy-covered neighborhood. The white New England style restaurant boasts a rotating, seasonal menu of fresh seafood like Atlantic cod or hearty classics like grilled skit steak – start off your meal with the freshly shucked oysters. The open kitchen and soft lighting add to the intimacy of the experience.

Sitting on the cusp of the Fitler Square neighborhood, Audrey Claire offers a mixture of Mediterranean and creative American-inspired dishes. The chic BYOB offers grilled flatbreads to comfort plates of roast chicken but with a twist of pomegranate molasses.

Sotto Ristorante Italiano
Sotto serves up classic, rustic Italian dishes. Go for favorites like grilled octopus and ravioli bolognese – the service doesn’t skim on portions. Dishes will be full of seafood or served large. The hidden gem is located underneath the Walnut Street bridge, but its ambience with dim lights and cork decor keeps the night intimate and lively.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
