While nearby Philadelphia may be more well-known for their culinary scene, Jenkintown has plenty of great restaurants right here in town. You don’t need to travel to the big city for a delicious meal. You can find cuisines from a variety of different parts of the world here and for all meals of the day, along with a solid lineup of bars with impressive beer lists and food menus. Our Montgomery County personal injury lawyers are big fans of the following restaurants in Jenkintown:
Marzano Ristorante is an Italian BYOB which specializes in all of your favorite Italian dishes, along with a strong selection of seafood items. We love picking up a bottle of wine and dining in here for an affordable and delicious meal.

Some dishes we regularly order at Marzano include:
- Bruschetta – Served with Crostini bread, marinated tomatoes, and shaved Parmesan
- Cozze Mediterranie – PEI mussels, pork chorizo, onions, jalapenos, marinara sauce
- Alle Pere Salad- Arugula, sliced pears, walnuts, crumbled bleu cheese, raspberry vinaigrette

Leila’s Restaurant and Bar
Leila’s is a French gastropub and bistro which serves up some excellent French-American cuisine, along with an extensive drink menu featuring a variety of premium whiskey, craft beers, and specialty cocktails. This restaurant is a bit on the pricier side, so it’s a good choice when you’re looking to celebrate something or simply treat yourself.
Some of our favorite dishes on Leila’s menu include:
- Crab Meat Salad
- Pan-Seared Scallops
- Prime New York Strip Steak
- Fried Chicken Sandwich with Pepper Jack Cheese
- Roasted Portabella Mushrooms on a Kaiser Roll
Forcella is a small, welcoming family-owned restaurant with amazing food and incredibly friendly service. When we eat here, we feel like we’re in the dining room of an old friend. This is another slightly upscale place, but the high prices are worth it for the quality of food, ambiance, and service you get. The space really is quite tiny, so we recommend making a reservation.
We recommend the following items on the Forcella menu:
- Winter Root Vegetable Soup
- Tiger Shrimp Tagliatelle
- Magret Duck Breast
- Beef Short Rib
- Land & Sea Brodetto
Argana Tree Restaurant
Argana Tree Restaurant offers delicious Mediterranean cuisine with a focus on Greek and Morrocan-inspired dishes. We love having family dinners here when we’re in the mood for something different. Everything here is prepared with fresh ingredients and is excellently balanced.
We suggest trying the following items at Argana Tree, although we’ve loved everything we’ve tried here:
- Grilled Spanish Octopus
- Roasted Beet Salad
- Lamb Tagine
- Seafood Pastilla
- Grilled Baby Lamb Chops
