The Sicilian-inspired restaurant sports a familial feel with ties to both Angela's and Joe's families, PhillyMag reports. The space will have vintage furniture pieces that belonged to both of their grandparents. The restaurant's logo of a Clementine is inspired by Joe's great-grandmother, Clementina Cicala. 

The menu features a variety of specialities, from swordfish and pasta to "Polentone," a meaty ragu dish compiled of Bracciole, sausage, meatballs, and pork ribs served over polenta. 

Cicala at the Divine Lorraine Hotel, located on 699 N. Broad St, will be open Friday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Monday through Thursday for dinner. The restaurant will also serve brunch on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
