Traditional Italian

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

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.

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

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...

Dined at 9:00 PM, mid-week, after a show at a local theatre. Greeted warmly. The view out to the river with the lights on the bridge was lovely. Service was terrific. We shared a spinach salad (gorgonzola on the side since one of the party doesn't like it) which could have been a bit better if the stems had been... More

The perfect venue for a River front view over looking a marina with Campbell's Park in the background. We had a party with 30+ family and friends and everyone raved about it. The upstairs dinning was a great combination of insde and outside which created a relaxed atmoshere. It all begins with the staff and Angelo was the best! The... More

OK, I never trust negative reviews when a person has only done one review. Axe to grind? So glad I ignored the few terrible reviews. Staff is overly friendly and welcoming. They are ITALIAN. You expect that. Had the special for an appetizer. It was a seafood puff pastry wrapped in Octopus. How do you tell a great restaurant? For... More

Had dinner today (9/10/14). I was disappointed by the quality of food. My wife and I ordered Caesar salad. It was mostly chopped lettuce, lots of grated cheese dry dressing and no garnish. Looked like a diners special. I ordered broiled seafood combination ($30.). Tuna was not seared, but sautéed and very dry, same with salmon. The rest of the... More
