NWR: Favorite Philly BYO?

I'm getting together with some friends tomorrow night, and need to pick a BYO. My favorite/old standby is La Viola, but I know there are others out there. Any recommendations? We'd like to stay downtown/old city/ south street since a few of the girls take SEPTA or PATCO home.
And they're the five best friends that anyone could have, the five best friends that anyone could have! Photobucket

    La Fontana - 17th and Spruce.

    It's a little further south but Cafe Valention at Moyamensing and Wharton is really good too.

    How about Mercato (gets crowded and doesn't take reservations but the food is great!), Little Fish, Bronzino, or Melagrano. All good. My BParty dinner was at La Fontana...love it there!

    Thanks for all of the great recommendations! I totally forgot about La Fontana, and haven't tried Effies or any of the others JnP mentioned!

    Across the street from Effies at 11th & pine (and run by the same owners) is a fairly new BYO called Paul. It has a nice quaint atmosphere and AWESOME food.
