Food is very good. They have a full dinner menu and often offer specials. For lunch, they have a very reasonable prix fix choice of entrees.

Standing near the Penn Landing with no idea where to go, asked Siri for a recommendation. Turned out to be a good choice. Food was hot, fresh and delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Nice variety including house made pasta.

My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch to experience the food of one of our favorite places to visit. The gnocchi and the salmon was amazing. But we had to start with the peppered calamari. Will definitely come back!
