Le Virtu is where you go in East Passyunk when you want to eat some classic Italian food, but you don’t want to do it in a closet-sized room where you could end up caressing someone’s leg at the next table instead of your date’s. There’s a lot of space here, and they also serve some above average pasta, so it’s a good spot for a weeknight dinner date. Plus, they have one of the best patios in the city.
