La Veranda is back!

After a year of bad food (though always genial service), we stopped going to LV, despite its convenient location. We wandered in tonight, strictly on the basis on proximity, and had our socks knocked off! GREAT Italian food. We told the server (lovely) that we noticed the change and he brought... read more

La Veranda is on the Delaware River so ask for a table by the water. We especially liked this restaurant because it was across from where we were staying at the Holiday Inn Express. Friendly staff and good lunch. We had the Pasta E Fagiolil soup and the Insalata Pazza; spinach salad with Gorgonzola. Perfect lunch on a chilly day.

I love La Veranda.... Free valet parking, amazing Italian cuisine, and very friendly cordial attentive staff. We book our fundraiser event here every year in November and they never disappoint us. Food is always terrific! They will do anything to make sure their customers are pleased. I stopped by today to have lunch and the seafood antipasti was perfect.

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. Service... More

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

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 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!!
