Great food, extraordinary wine listThis is definately a neighborhood gem. It's tucked away on a quiet street in Old Town. We almost weren't sure if we were going the correct way. It was close to our hotel, but not close to any action. The food was amazing! I have never seen a more planned and unique wine list followed by numerous flights and recommendations. The service was excellent: the waiters checked on us often and the drinks and food were brought out in perfect timing. The restaurant is beautiful with artwork covering the walls. Being an Italian restaurant we expected more authentic dining music or even some light jazz, but they were playing more modern music and thus the noise level was a bit higher than we expected.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good Resturant...Very good dinner.. great food and awesome presentation. Wine list is amazing. Service was a lititle inpersonal and rushed but otherwise great dinner.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful service. Steve atWonderful service.

Love the flights and the food!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal!Absolutely the best restaurant where I have dined during all of my travels! The service was impeccable. The daily fish special of sea bass and vegetables was delicious, and very light and fresh.
The wine selection is spectacular.
Although seeing the wine list might be intimidating figuring which flight to order, the staff is kind and can assist with your selection, easing one's anxiety.
After dinner, we meandered to the bar and tried some more wine. The "taps" are just beautiful and elegantly displayed.
A fantastic dining experience while visiting Philly on business.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden Gem in the Penn's View InnMy dinning experience at Panorama was excellent. The atmosphere was beautiful and comfortable. Frescos on the walls and ceiling make you feel like you're dining in Tuscany. The wait staff was very attentive. For wine lovers the list of options is immense. My wife and I had their rum punch which had a nice balance between strong and flavorful.
Our appetizer of soup was nothing special but our entrees were incredible. Crab stuffed raviolis, Mediterranean sea bass and shells with lobster, calamari and tiger shrimp were all exceptional and all the pasta dishes are available either half or full meals.
At an average of $50 per person for appetizer, dinner, dessert and drinks this isn't a cheap date spot but the atmosphere and food are worth it.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, reasonably pricedExcellent, reasonably priced pre fixe dinner with wine pairing.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent staff - went outExcellent staff - went out of the way to attend to everything from the bar to dinner.

We sat in bar dining room which had a really nice ambiance and was not too loud. Had to wait about 20 mins after showing up on time for our reservations but that was fine because we were able to check out the bar before dinner and enjoy their exceKlimt selection. The bar tenders were extremely knowledgeable about their huge selection of wine. The food was very good, tried an application, salad, pasta, and meat dish and all were excellently prepared. Definately made for a special evening for my lady and I.
