we ate there Sat night and it was by far; one of the best Italian dinners we have had in Phila ...and we eat out several times a week. A must try if you haven't. Chef came out to talk and this is authentic Italian

This restaurant is a hidden gem. A very nice menu, excellent food but slow service. The inside of the restaurant has a view of the inner harbor and the pleasure craft, that are docked outside the restaurant.

We happened into this place while enjoying Penn's Landing. There were few people there for lunch, which concerned me. I had nothing to fear! The gnocchi was perfectly prepared and the squash was much better than the usual side dish. The river view helped create a perfect lunch.

We were here in a group to celebrate a work anniversary and we had good expectatons. Orders were taken and the appetisers were delivered and duly demolished (bruschetta was a little hard, but tasty) but there seemed to be a very long wait to get everyone's food, as it was delivered in batches. This wouldn't usually be an issue but... More

Food and service are excellent!!! Try the veal saltimboca or veal fungi, or chicken parm. Enjoy the duck boats going up and down the Delaware River right outside the restaurant.

Our entire family enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal with great service. We highly recommend the veal saltimboca and veal fungi (mushrooms). Our sons both had chicken parmagana and highly recommend it. You can enjoy your meal and watch all the Duck Boats go up and down the Delaware River.

Before going here, I read the reviews. It seemed people either loved it or hated it. I took a chance and was glad I did. The atmosphere was very inviting with big picture windows on both sides of a long narrow room affording a view of the harbor as well as the street. The staff was very friendly, welcoming, and...

Haven't been here for years and came back for lunch with the family. Don't think will ever be back. Food took forever. Pasta carbonara was over salted. Cannoli and chocolate cake and cannoli we ordered for desert was not available. Bad food. Slow service. Not worth the $$$

I came upon LaVeranda about a year ago. Every time I am there I am pleased I came into the city to do so. My most recent visit was on a weekday night so there were fewer patrons. The restaurant is spacious and well-appointed - just as their website pictures show it. The hostess was delightful and came to check... More

My husband and I booked this restaurant for a romantic, waterside Valentine's Day dinner via opentable. When we arrived at 5:20, the host spent 15 seconds trying to find our reservation, indicated he couldn't, but took us to a table in a back room. The room was noticeably colder than the main dining room, and when we remarked on it... More
