adjective al· i· men· ta· ri|

1: of or relating to nourishment or nutrition, to nurture or treasure

The Italian translation of 'Alimentari' is "a small neighborhood food store or mini supermarket, a neighborhood gathering place, that provides delicious ready-to-eat food and small meals in a grocery shop setting."

Since 1939, we've prided ourselves on bringing amazing food to the city of Philadelphia and drawing food lovers together in our ‘home.’ It is with great joy that we can now explore and enjoy the finest delicacies together at Alimentari.

A seat at Alimentari is a seat at our family table. Here, we slow down, clink a glass, and savor each plate with a passion. Alimentari means "to nourish." Our goal is to nourish the appetite of our guests with a unique, casual dining experience of small plates, cheese & charcuterie, and Pizza alla Roma, and nourish their spirits with seasonally-flavored Aperol spritz, creative cocktails, local beers and exclusive wines. Good food and camaraderie, it's a simple combination that makes a meal that much more delicious. Visit us upstairs at our Rittenhouse location for the full Di Bruno Bros. experience, where you can explore and taste the culinary discoveries we're so excited to share.

Alimentari's menu is crafted from our curated collection of food finds from around the world, most of which you can find just one floor down at our legendary Center City store. You can taste cheeses straight from the farm, encounter new ways to use our in-house staples, sip on your favorite beverage, or have a slice of pizza just like the Romans do. Celebrate the things that make life worth living, good food and good people. Because 'la vita è bella'.
