VETRI: MEET THE FAMILY »

Alla Spina

About Alla Spina

Inspired by years of visits to Italy and a true love of finely made beer, the Vetri family has brewed up their version of an Italian gastropub with Alla Spina (Italian for “from the tap”). Diners can expect a large selection of both local brews and Italian beers, as well as pub fare including house-made sausages, braised meats and oysters. Staying true to its moniker, Alla Spina is a haven for seasonal craft beers.

Guests can grab a spot at the bar and order from one of the 20 taps on the custom copper draft towers—which include hard-to-find Italian brews, a choice of domestic and international offerings; five other taps are dedicated to pouring wine, cocktails, and spirits. There’s a list of 50 bottled beers too, as well as an exclusive house beer from local craft brewery Victory, which changes seasonally.

Signature dishes include housemade pretzels with spicy beer cheese; mortadella hot dogs with pickles ; Pig Tails with fennel agrodolce; Maple Glazed Fried Chicken; and the North Philly sausage cheesesteak. Desserts include soft serve, a signature cake of the week, and decadent dishes such as a housemade Choco Taco

Guests can enjoy the atmosphere in a number of ways; in the colorful dining room, at the bar, in a casual lounge space watching soccer or Philly sports teams on the TVs, or when weather permits, enjoying the outdoor seating while looking into the restaurant through the dramatic floor-to-ceiling garage doors.
