Relaxing lunch on the river

Three of us celebrated a birthday on Saturday. The service, food, cocktails and atmosphere were perfect. We had the parchment fish and clams, veal and linguine con vongole. What a treat! If we are in Philadelphia again we will go back. It was easy to get to and we parked out front since it was... read more

La Veranda is old style Italian --although at times a little decadence may be okay. Food was not bad but not sensational. What irked me however was that when ordering a rather pricey (yet well priced, to be fair) Pinot Grigio (a good label, Santa margherita) we were presented with a non refrigerated bottle, a no-no in my book.

Old friends gather monthly to try new dining experiences. This adventure was not great. The service was very good, venue clean and nice views. Food bland. The veal picante was served luke warm. Presentation unimaginative and pasta was over cooked . Plus the veal was tough. The best items were bread & fried mushrooms. A companion said her ravioli was... More

If we are in Philadelphia again we will go back. It was easy to get to and we parked out front since it was a lazy Saturday afternoon.

My wife and I hit La Veranda up for the first time in a couple years. Food is always good, and service is always good. I love the Veal here, and their saltimbocca is off the charts. My wife got the chicken piccante, which was delicious. It may seem little, but their complimentary bruschetta is the best I have ever... More

Got a nice table overlooking the river and piers. Good menu, little pricey but it is good italian food. I had the $20 lunch special. Salad, entree and dessert. Good deal! Nice place if you are in the penns landing area.

The hotel staff recommended this restaurant and we were glad. Very traditional, good food and good service. We enjoyed the wine, espresso and appetizers. The entrées were delicious with good sized portions. Did not order dessert, but am sure it would have been very good as well

Our main dish meals were delicious. We order three different meals and tasted each others and we could not decide who had chosen the better meal. I would not recommend the Cesar salad, because they put hardly any dressing, so the salad was dry. The bruchetta entre was the best I ever had!!

Great water view. Reasonably priced wine. Great food. The best staff. The pepper and mushroom sauce for my rib eye was memorable. Pasta was perfect. A place to return to time again.

Normally, My wife and I try to stay "local" after a performance at our favorite theatre venue in Center City Philadelphia. This time however, we chose a short cab ride to La Veranda on Columbus Ave at Penns landing. This was one of the best choices we ever made. The host is very friendly, you are seated promptly, and there... More

I used to frequent this place and all my friends did as well. Lately, its been a great stop for appetisers and cigars before a home football game, however, last two months...two visits, the place has been relatively empty, and a desparate attempt made to try and satisfy....the sweet langoustinos were burnt, squid and shrimp salad was just awlful, they...
