Executive Chef Matthew Gentile has revamped the Italian menu and interpreted Panorama’s stable of recipes, many of which had been in the Sena family for generations, and edited them with modern techniques, lighter ingredients and clean presentations. Chef Gentile adds a large selection of homemade pastas, large plates for sharing, and many lighter options that can be combined for a meal.Panorama was recognized with a Guinness World Record as the World’s Largest Wine Bar via an award bestowed on its custom-designed winekeeper/cruvinet, which offers 120 wines on tap.
The restaurant is hyper-focused on wine, with up to 150 wines by the glass available at any time. Try one of our signature Panoramic Flights — a personal wine tasting offering a sampling of five different wines within a select group - from a selection of over 2 dozen fun and provocative themes.

    Second time we’ve been here, and it won’t be the last. From handcrafted cocktails or a wine flight, through your meal and dessert, you’ll find everything at Panorama is superb! The service is very good, and the staff are very knowledgeable about the Did and beverages that they serve.

    We enjoyed an early anniversary dinner at 6pm. The food, the drinks were delicious and memorable for our special occasion. Service was excellent. Noise level early on in the evening is minimal… it was nice to have conversation. This was our first time here and I guess we expected better views due to location and restaurant name (and I had mentioned our anniversary). We were seated next to the bar. Otherwise the larger part of the experience was perfect for us!

    It was a cold rainy dark November night, and I stepped into this warm and welcoming refuge. The meal was memorable from the recommended “Autumn Leaves “ wine flight to the black garlic pesto on fungi to the rich and flavorful gnocchi and ending in a wonderful tiramisu. The staff were attentive and other guests enjoying themselves quietly. I would love to return.

    Very disappointed. It has been a few years since we had been to Panorama. It used to be one of our consistent favorites for excellent food and service.. a bit pricey, but always worth it. We had not been since the pandemic. Our waitress was pleasant but overwhelmed, servers were disorganized, meal stages arrived too rapidly before old plates even removed. Food tepid upon serving. Maybe short on staff?? Hard to know.

    The food and service were pretty good but the drinks were overpriced and smallish. We like Panorama’s vibe & location but a $300+ bill for 4 people seemed a little overpriced based on our food & drink choices.

    Lovely place, very welcoming as we came in, nice table, wonderful dinner, nice wine, all in all a very good experience. Pre-Arden-theater dinner. Not completely full, but lots there to liven up the rooms. Waiter could have been a bit more attentive. Owner was very good to us. Left a good impression - we'll be back.

    We had a fantastic meal. The hen of the woods mushroom appetizer was delicious and the two pasta entries were outstanding. We got terrific wine advice from Bill and the service was perfect. Great ambiance, too. Can’t recommend Panorama highly enough! Definitely one of the best, if not the best, Italian restaurants in Philadelphia.

    The lighting was a bit too dark to read the menu comfortably - specifically the section along the windowed wall on the left towards the back of the dining room. That was the only slightly less than perfect thing of the experience: food was excellent, service was incredible (server was very knowledgeable and communicated that easily), and the wine selection was terrific. As someone who enjoys wine but it not very fluent in it’s subtleties, the wine flight was truly a wonderful experience.

    Four diners enjoyed an array of food. Caesar salad was excellent. Shrimp cocktail was very nice and the beet salad was very large, colorful and delicious. Cocktails were perfect. They were very willing to create a custom gluten-free pappardelle pasta dish that was superb! Duck leg very tender and flavorful. Bronzino was a beautiful, substantial serving. Our server, Cole was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed a relaxing visit with out of town friends without feeling rushed at all. It was an excellent experience. Haven't been here in a long time and can't wait to go again!

    A fantastic restaurant in a great location! The food was delicious and the ambiance was just right. My husband and I just wanted to go for a nice evening and Panorama delivered - from the host, to the bar, to the server and even when we left it was a great evening. The noise was actually mild when we started it only became slightly louder as more people came in. However it was filled when we left, so the noise was low for a filled restaurant. When we come back to Philadelphia (we're in NC!) we'll definitely come back to Panorama!

    Terrific waiter and very good food. Choices were good, portions were not skimpy. Prices fair. Two picky issues: male at front door is micro manager and only slows flow - front door is open/ street noise and cool weather seeped into room.

    Came to celebrate my birthday during restaurant week and had such a great time. My friend and I were seated outside in the terrace area. The lights hanging outside, and the view of the Bridge gave Panorma such a romantic feel. I was made feel special with complimentary champagne. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Definitely will do again as a date night!

    We chose this restaurant because of the variety of options and we were not disappointed. I chose the shrimp dish for the 1st course and the steak as the second. Both were delicious and prepared well. The chocolate cake was moist and the cherries made the desert delightful. Lastly, was the presentation. All dishes for photo ready. They were beautiful dishes.

    The food took an extremely long time to come out and then was luke warm. I don’t like food if it’s not hot. Took it home to hopefully enjoy my mean once it’s heated properly. Too expensive a restaurant not to provide basics you can get anywhere like food that is served hot. The restaurant had no cream or half and half for coffee. Huh? Coffee also was not hot like it should have been. Again too expensive a restaurant not to have cream or half and half for coffee. Although the quality of the food seemed to be good the place is not run well like it should be. Somewhat dissappointing and time wasted.
