The food was delicious and innovative. We would totally go back. Every single thing we tried was delicious... and creative... it was not just repeats of the same traditional dishes that are always served at Italian restaurants.

It was Mother’s Day with a fixed brunch menu. If I knew this, I wouldn’t have made a reservation- these are ALWAYS bad! The service was as good as it could have been with the problems in the kitchen. The timing was WAY off. Three meals would arrive & it would be 10 min before the others would trickle out. Then it was another 20 min for the next course to slowly emerge from the kitchen. The limited menu was so, so. The food was good but not great. Definitely NOT impressed!

The menu was fixed for Mother's Day with options for appetizer, entree and dessert. The food was very good, and the service was very attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere was cozy and we were able to have a private conversation for several hours. We would definitely go again!

Outstanding! So inventive! So delicious! One of our most memorable meals. The veal was paired worth a light citrus sauce that was amazing. Everything was great from the bread to desert. It was a meal to remember.

Excellent food. They were great about walking us through the different flight options, listening to what we wanted, and recommending things that were new to us but that we would like.

Also, the eggplant antipasti was outstanding. My husband loved his veal. I loved the dessert. Great food, great experience.

We went for a special very expensive Passover dinner as we couldn’t have our usual dinner at home, The matzah ball soup was really mushroom soup and the matzah ball was so hard I could hardly cut it with a fork. It had no flavor and was not similar to any matzah ball soup I ever had! No one liked it and we were 7 people. The short ribs came out room temperature but dinner took so long and we had little children- we mostly let that go. The salmon was overly done with a hard crust on top and no flavor. The waitress was unfriendly and the whole experience was not what we hoped for. Very expensive and most of us came home hungry and disappointed. We would Never go back.

This was our second time at Panorama. The service and atmosphere are great. The food is delicious. The only complaint about this visit... I ordered halibut, the fish special, the portion was way too small. I am a petite woman and I was still hungry after the meal.

We found Panorama on Open Table, and really enjoyed it! Amy at the bar was great, knew her stuff about the 100s of wines by the glass, and really made waiting for our friends enjoyable. Once at our table, the food was AWESOME. Timely in its delivery and cooked to perfection. The duck homemade pasta was amazing, as was the strip steak. We will definitely return!

Incredible wine selection, -if you’re interested in wine this is definitely the place to go. Their sommelier on staff is knowledgeable & helpful, especially if you’re not sure exactly what you’re looking for.

Although I took my friends here exclusively for wine flights before dinner reservations elsewhere, I’ve dined here three times previously & found their dishes to be good -not stellar. Compared to other Italian restaurants in Philly (& let’s be real, the competition is fierce) this probably wouldn’t be the place I’d recommend to someone visiting looking to be impressed by an authentic Italian meal.

However, if you love wine or want to really wow someone who does, this is a top option. This is precisely the reason I took my friends (who love wine) here before dinner. They loved it!

Exceeded expectations from beginning until the end starting with a friendly and tentive staff, the appetizers were fantastic especially the Tuna tartare which I highly recommend. My wife had the lamb which was delicious and I had the veal dish which was very good and tender. We polished off the meal with exquisite tiramisu and good coffee. Highly recommend the restaurant and if you lucky you will have Talia as the server.

Wine flights and homemade pasta made this restaurant a perfect choice! Everything we ordered was delicious. The only complaints we had were that the food portions are a little small for the price that they are charging and our we often had to wait a while for our waitress to come back to our table. She was very kind and did apologize for the wait and she gave us a glass of wine for free. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine selection!
