I love this place! The wine flights were amazing. The eggplant parmigiana was Amazon and I had the steak so juicy. I ate outside so the ambiance was so romantic. Will be returning!

It was so nice to finally be able to dine out in a lovely setting. The tables were well spaced so we not only felt very safe, we were able to converse easily. Great background sound track. Also the servers were friendly and efficient. And I am counting the days until I can go back and have the lasagna again.

Panorama went above and beyond. We were celebrating a birthday and they graciously gave us a Prosecco toast and dessert at no charge. We also had two tables reserved and they ensured to put them next to each other

We enjoyed the food and the interior decor. The staff was very
friendly whenever encounteted but they were very inattentive. Our water sat empty and there was no one in sight to get a second glass of wine or check to pay the bill.

This place came highly rated. We were disappointed in the food and service. Not very accommodating at all. For example, Requested no anchovy on salad and the remark from server is it’s fine it’s a small piece. I then replied that I rather not have it on there and he said oh you will be fine. Then when requesting a plain, traditional margarita he replied we don’t do that, only blood orange or passion fruit. I said I’d rather have a plain he just said no. Every course was gross to be honest. Calamari tasted like rubber and frozen. I would never go back nor recommend. Save your money!

The restaurants was very nice from their outdoor dining set up to the indoor. The best part about dining here was the food. The only draw back about the restaurant was the service. Our waitress although friendly was not attentive. There was a long wait time for our drinks and food. We waited over 15 mins for our drinks and over an hour for food.

Went for dinner at 7pm on a Sunday. We were asked if we wanted to eat inside or outside, and we chose inside. We were seated immediately inside the front door- before you even got to the bar area. So every time the door opened- it was cold. The restaurant seemed quiet - I would have preferred to sit more in the interior dining room space. Service was very, very slow and it wasn’t terribly busy.

Salmon entree was good. Chicken Milanese was over-cooked, dry, and the vegetables served with it had way too much garlic. Daughters beverage was flat - which was replaced but replacement was still flat. For the price paid, I expected better food.

We finished eating and waited a long time for the check. Then we waited another nearly 30 minutes before asking someone to take my card and pay the bill. Frustratingly slow.

I wouldn’t go back. Philadelphia has plenty of good restaurants to choose from. No need to settle here for lousy service and mediocre food.

They were over booked, and only had 1 server for an entire section. They also only had 1 bartender. Everything was a wait, it was an 3 hour dining experience and we ordered everything at once because it took so long for the server to take our order. The server did well considering her was completely overwhelmed. Poor management.

Good outdoor setup. The place was bustling inside and out. Consistently good over a few decades. Wine flight pours could be a touch more generous. Would just get a glass next time. Will return again.

Restaurant was so crowded so they sat us outside. Zero ambiance. They don’t even bother to put tablecloths on the table. Don’t use linen napkins. They felt like burlap and had holes in them. When you pay $100 pp for dinner, you expect some type of ambiance. Food was good but we were very disappointed.

We felt incredibly rushed and received little attention from our server. We had our appetizers before our drinks and our table was cleared before getting our second drink ordered. Were required to order everything at once. Significant prices for a “fast” food experience.

The drinks and antipasti were amazing!
We enjoyed the lasagna and Cacia de Pepe but the braciole wasn’t impressive. It was tender but needed some seasoning. Our server was nice but not very attentive, we saw more of the busser and often waited for drinks from the bar. No one checked to see how we were doing with our meals. The ricotta cake was truly the best part!

Went here for my birthday and the hostess was so sweet and gave us a complimentary glass of champagne and wished me happy birthday. We got the steak, which was pretty good. The potatoes were way underdone however. Also got the chittara pasta and actually had to send it back because it only tasted like pasta water with a hint of butter for $30... we never do that type of thing, and they were nice about it but would never go back. Totally not worth the price for the food.

I guess if you weren’t used to good Italian you might think this is ok. Started off with cold and not tasty bread. Calamari was good. Pastas were just boring.

The Sena family with Panorama and La Familia have the two best Italian restaurants in the Delaware Valley maybe on the East Coast
