Out of the Way But Worth the Trip

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... read more

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...

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

The staff was very gracious. The melon, prosciutto, and cheese is excellent! Pasta was good and cappuccino was the perfect ending to a delightful evening. Very nice!

We came for lunch during the Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Penn's Landing Restaurant Week. Maybe that was the problem. It seemed as though as soon as we asked for the restaurant week menu, everyone lost interest. There was only one other couple when we arrived. We received water, bruschetta and bread quickly, but after that, everything was slow, slow, slow. We... More

I like being spoiled! I was greeted warmly and immediately served a fresh and flavorful bruschetta on house-made bread. I ordered the spinach and ricotta ravioli; the tomato basil sauce was absolutely fresh and the pasta was wonderful! Angelo, the maitre'd, stopped by my table at least four times to make sure I was happy. I dined with a view... More
