Gil’s Restaurant, Roxborough, PA

On Ridge Avenue in Roxborough, PA, you’ll find Gil’s Restaurant. I consider this place to be a neighborhood joint where you’ll find Italian favorites done right and served up by a friendly staff. So, let’s get right to the food. Started out with some appetizers including a beautiful shrimp cocktail and this version of a caprese salad:

Gil’s Pomodoro and Mozzarella.

Then there was an entree of sea bass with clams, which I thought was an exotic combination. Check it out:

This was reported by my companions to be delicious. I enjoyed a simple chicken parm that was tasty. Of course, we had to have dessert. My usual is tiramisu, which came in a huge portion. Then there was this chocolate cake:

What a great feed! Gil’s is also a BYOB and we guzzled nearly three bottles before the night was over. The nice thing about at BYO joint is it saves you the liqour markup. Gil’s prices are very reasonable. The setting is like a big living room in your pal’s house. The service is friendly, cheerful, and willing. Stop in here and keep it on your list of regular places.

  1. Beautiful! I just happen to have some nice little clams like the one in the picture. Not enough for a whole meal of them but plenty as a ‘side’ for that sort of dish!
