Located in a historic townhome in the heart of Philadelphia, Vetri Cucina is a unique space that invites guests to become part of our family. With seating for 32, the intimate dining room evokes the charms of Italy with custom crafted features including hand-blown Murano glass chandeliers, Richard Ginori porcelain and Venetian glassware.
In order to fully showcase the constantly evolving, dynamic creativity of Chef Vetri and his team, Vetri Cucina serves a multi-course tasting menu using the highest quality local and specialty ingredients. Simple yet elegant, the seasonal meal is inspired by both classic Italian recipes and our extensive culinary research across the globe. Each menu is tailored upon arrival, and we are always happy to accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions. This is the restaurant’s sole dining option, designed to provide each and every guest with a memorable, unparalleled experience.
At Vetri Cucina, our team is constantly traveling, expanding our knowledge and discovering new preparations, ingredients, products and flavors from around the world. It is our pleasure to translate these travels and our passion to your table.
As Vetri Cucina’s dinner menu has evolved over the years, so too has our extensive beverage program. Over the course of two decades, we have collected rare and sought after vintages and continue to expand our offerings. With two temperature-controlled cellars housing more than 2,500 bottles, our wine list is carefully curated and managed by a team of certified sommeliers. The collection represents every region of Italy, as well as a sampling of the world’s classic wine regions.
Each night we offer a unique pairing to perfectly complement the dishes on our tasting menu. These wines are also available by the glass.
While Vetri Cucina does not have a sit-down bar, we do offer a full selection of spirits and liquors and are prepared to serve classic cocktails, aperitifs, digestifs, Scotch, bourbon and grappa. An extensive selection of domestic and international beers is also available.
We are pleased to announce that the grains used in our pastas, breads and pastries are house-milled and sustainably grown. By stone milling, we harness the flavor of the germ and bran while preserving the integrity, making for a superior product that both delights the palate and nourishes the body. Rediscovering grain has brought new energy and inspiration to our work, and we are thrilled to share it with you.
