Wife and I came here for a drink and a late night snack. Did not eat in restaurant, but sat at bar. Fried calamari was excellent, and the mushroom appetizer was very good and very different. Based on these I would definitely come back to dine in the restaurant. Bartender was congenial, and there is a 120 tap wine chiller... More

I took a couple of employees here with spouses for a nice Christmas season dinner. They have an excellent selection of wines by the glass, which is pretty much their forte. After having some wine and drinks at the bar, we sat for dinner. The food was pretty good. I might have given a slightly better score if the staff... More

I did not actually eat at the restaurant. Only had a shrimp appetizer during happy hour as we had only limited time to stop before heading to the airport. The appetizer was delicious and you couldn't beat the price at 50% off during happy hour. I don't believe I ever saw so many good wines that you could get by... More

2 of my co-workers stopped in here for lunch, we were the only table in the restaurant. I guess being inside the hotel keeps the business going at night. No complaints about service as we were the only table. Food was fresh and very tasty. I will say it is a somewhat limited lunch menu and mainly all Italian pasta/entree... More

Read the reviews and thought this would be a good choice. It was. We had a wonderful dinner. Portions are on the smallish side but not atypical for fine dining. Simply fantastic selection of wine. It was very nice that our waiter was knowledgeable about them all. Great location and atmosphere. Service was good.

This italian restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge so I had booked ahead if time since it was the eve of my wife's marathon and italian restaurants would be hard to find the day before. The restaurant is a little far from center city. Once we got there and were given our table, we realized it was cold. The... More

We have been dining here for years, but this experience was a disaster. The four of us arrived on time for the reservation with there being several empty tables. A party of ten or twelve at one table would become the excuse for dinner taking 150 minutes. Although the waitress, who proved to be insipid, wanted to take our orders... More

The ambience and food were fabulous in this restaurant. Pasta was all homemade and delicious. The wine bar was very nice too. We had an after dinner drink in there.

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
