Panorama is a great Italian restaurant, with an exceptional wine list, on Front street, near downtown Philadelphia. Service was top notch. You never had to wait to order an appetizer, your entrée, or another glass of wine ... and your water glass was always full. There were 6 of us there for a business dinner and the proprietor even came... More

One must start off a review of this place with mention of wine selection and notariety. They have the ability to have 120 different wines served by the glass and also by the flight. The restaurant had the best gnocci I ever had. Light and incredibly fluffy and explode in your mouth with flavor! The service was very good and... More

Took a couple of our distributors to Panorama for dinner - great concept with the wine tasting "trees". Excellent and knowledgeable servers, terrific food and a great atmosphere to relax and shoot the breeze.

Excellent food, small plates available. Ambience is perfect. Generally quiet. Service personnel are attentive and pleasant but not overbearing. Extensive wine cellar.

I have eaten in your restaurant many times in the past, the way past I might add. When I was single my girlfriends and I dined there often. We were in our late 20's /early 30's and I am proud to say I will soon be 50. I have eaten there since and always enjoyed myself, but this last experience... More

We ate here twice and would definitely return. The wine menu has been recognized by Guiness and it is well deserved. The flights include five generous glasses, and there is an abundance of choices. They serve 140 international and domestic wines. The bartender is terrific; we really enjoyed her. Also, the Italian food is terrific. I had the prawn appetizer... More

Ate here one night as staying in the hotel. Superb pasta (says 'home-made' and it is!) and Italian dishes you don't find so easily elsewhere. Not cheap but we'll worth it for the beautiful food.

We wanted a quick Friday night getaway in the city. We arrived early, got street parking and settled in at the bar for a few drinks before dinner. Bartenders were knowledgable and friendly. After a few drinks of new wines from the well stocked wine bar we had to decide on dinner at the bar or our reservation in the... More

We were lodged at Penns View Hotel so thought it would be nice to try the restaurant. Nothing special. Pricey.

My wife and I dined on a Friday evening, taking advantage of a special offer for Restaurants in the Old City week. The wine list was extensive, and our waiter was knowledgeable and comfortable making suggestions to match our meals, producing an excellent overall experience. My wife is a vegetarian, and found that there was a slightly limited range of... More
