I guess if you weren’t used to good Italian you might think this is ok. Started off with cold and not tasty bread. Calamari was good. Pastas were just boring.

The Sena family with Panorama and La Familia have the two best Italian restaurants in the Delaware Valley maybe on the East Coast

Everything was delicious and the portion sizing could not have been more perfect! The outside seating area was really well done and quite warm. Good quality without trying too hard.

I had the lasagna and it was unbelievably good!! The wine flites were also excellent. We sat outside in the tent and it was plenty warm. Table spacing was also acceptable to us with the fear of covid-19 that is important to us. My wife had the cavatelli and they were also fantastic.

No special occasion. They were featuring Black Wineries in one of their wine flights and I wanted to acknowledge that and support them for doing it!

From the first face to the last, the whole experience was outstanding. Went out for a wine tasting, but it didn’t feel too fancy. Will definitely be going back.

Had an excellent time again at Panorama. The service was great, super friendly and everyone was very accommodating. The outdoor dining was comfortable and felt like we were still inside. We felt safe, the staff took extra precautions and we had enough space. Thank you for making a birthday dinner special and can’t wait to be back!

Went to Panaroma for the first time to have dinner with a friend. The reviews looked good but we were very disappointed with the quality of the food. We ordered the shrimp appetizer and it was truly disgusting....I’m not a picky eater but that’s something I’d never want in my mouth again. I don’t know who approved the taste of that horrid dish. We were not entirely thrilled to have the rest of our meal here after the appetizer experience so we only ordered more drinks which were fine, not easy to mess up alcohol, and half plates of pasta for our entrees. We both got the Cacio e Pepe which wasn’t as bad as the shrimp but really just tasted like glorified mac and cheese for $15 half/$25 for the whole. The service was completely fine though, we had a kind and attentive server. Outside seating was a little too cold for my liking but picked it just to be safe, indoor seating is available.

We enjoyed a really a lovely evening. The staff was very attentive and their recommendations were on point. It was our first time dining inside in about a year, and we certainly felt safe. Food was tasty and beautifully served. We also enjoyed an amazing selection of wines. The espresso martinis were also some of the best I’ve ever had.

The food was okay. Steak came WELL done, it was a fixed menu for $75 a person and the rigatoni had about 5 pieces in it. The service was good they were polite but in my opinion I’d rather go somewhere else for that amount of money.

The service was amazing! Everyone was so sweet and kind. I wish the portions were a little bigger but it may have been because of the Valentine’s Day menu. The wine tower was a great touch. Food tasted amazing.

We didn’t get our drinks until the entrees came. The service could not have been more slow. At the end of our meal we were still hungry. For 300 for two people we shouldn’t have ordered a pizza after.

Everything except the food was great. It tasted artificial, like everything came from a can or a cardboard box. While we enjoyed the ambience, for the amount of money we paid, we were definitely disappointed.

I’ve enjoyed Panorama over the years. Was disappointed in the selection of food on the menu and the overall quality and taste of the food was just ok. The service was excellent. I will return at some pint with the hopes that the overall quality improves as we deal with the pandemic limitations.

Our night at Panorama was amazing! We arrived early and staff was able to seat us, which was great. All of the staff was incredibly kind and accommodating. The restaurant was adhering to social distancing and all staff members were wearing their masks properly. The food was delicious as well!

The hostess and the gentleman that cleared our dishes were outstanding, our server was decent but slightly forgetful and less personable. The pasta and wine flight were incredible but the N.Y strip was a bit overcooked and very charred on the top and not worth the price. The pasta and wine was a great bang for our buck and will plan to return for those.

We were overwhelmed with the fabulous service at Panorama! From Prosecco to celebrate a birthday, to attentive service, to the free coffee the next morning when we had to pick up our credit card. We were only able to stay for apps, but we will quickly be returning to experience the ambience and service and try the entrees.

It was an amazing date night for me and my wife. They went above and beyond. The manager Antonio was more than helpful making this a special night for my wife and I. I called before hand and made special reservations and plans for flowers to be delivered from a local florist and it was perfect. I cannot thank them enough ..!!

We went there for our anniversary before and had a great time. This time it was our 5 year and they gave us complimentary champagne which was super nice! The food was delicious and the portions were filling. Of course the wine flights were fantastic. Our waiter and the staff in general were so amazing and that's why we'll keep coming back!
