The location on Penn's Landing is beautiful, but it seems clear they are relying on the location. The veal marasala is very tender but nothing special. Folks who had the chicken were disappointed, but those who had the pasta with vodka sauce were pleased. The wine is acceptable. The salad was surprisingly good. Our server knew nothing about the wine.... More

This is NOT a pizza and pasta restaurant. It is fine dining but not terribly expensive. Most of the dishes are veal or beef, with some seafood. I had veal medallions in a white wine sauce with crab meat on top. The veal was like butter. They also have daily specials, like lamb chops, that are not typically Italian. Since... More

So glad I tried this restaurant! The place was adorable, the staff was very friendly, and the food was delicious. (Plus it's in a great location with lots to do in the area.) I would absolutely go back again.

Very nice restaurant. Excellent staff. Food was delicious. Nice views of the river. I would definitely recommend and will definitely go back. I see they have a rear deck, I want to eat out there once the weather gets warmer.

Absolutely horrible service from Jon Carlos. Loud, crass, disrespectful, slow and a very poor representative of the restaurant. Food was just ok. Enjoyed my meal so much more at Panorama the night before! Resent the automatic tip being added after the tax, waiter lined his pocket with another 2% by doing that. When challenged on that he was belligerent, raised... More

For Dinner for a party of six, service was prompt and courteous. I had the ribeye which was delicious and cooked perfectly. I sampled my partners Veal Martini, a large veal chop, which was also very good. The bartender was capable of starting the evening right with a very good Old Fashioned. The only items that were a bit off... More

The food was great and the service was exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic. There was a beautiful full moon out that night and we could enjoy it from our seats as this restaurant overlooks the Delaware River.
