I would recommend the Burrata, wasn’t expecting it to be as sweet as it was but paired with the bread it was delicious.

Wine flights are available but you do not get to choose unless you want to spend more $$$

I picked the “Weed” flight and it consisted of White and Red Wine. Very good.


Defiantly get the Ricotta Cake! SO GOOD.

We were in the furthest room from the main entrance and it seemed like there needed to be two waiters. We had 4 people at my table and needed plates from appetizers cleared because the main course plates didn’t fit.

Bruschetta appetizer was serviced on three tiers... and had three types: Tuna, standard tomatoes and red pepper.

Tuna didn’t work for me but the rest were good. I would recommend the Tuna Carpaccio. Fresh. Flavorful and light for an app.

I would suggest putting two waiters and a bus boy in that room because one waiter could not handle it all even the best of the best.


Request to sit outside they have heat lamps and the view of the Ben Franklin Bridge is worth it!

We had an amazing experience! It was our mini moon. We were treated like king and queen which made us feel special.

We are from Philly. We couldn’t go away for our honeymoon because of Covid. Panorama made us feel like we were away from Philly. It was perfect! Thank you!

The place was great (ambiance). My wife’s food was good and mine was decent. The service was terrible as was the seating. We specifically requested indoors but leaving the door open at night made it too cold. I’m sure the place will be better once things get back to normal. Disappointing considering we travelled from the NJ Shore for my wife’s birthday.

Loved the ambiance and the food was absolutely incredible! Bruschetta is a 3 tiered appetizer - perfect for a group. We ordered 3 half size pasta dishes to share and it was not too much! The cavatelli was our favorite. Highly recommend for a fun date night!

We went to Panorama to celebrate my birthday. We ate outside. As in the past, the staff gave us a complimentary Prosecco to celebrate which is typically what they do if they know you are celebrating something.

The food was delicious as always. We shared the house salad, antipasti and roasted mushrooms. I’m so glad they have appetizer portions of pasta as I always want to get some when we go. I got the Casio et pepe pasta, and my husband got the chitarra. All great!

Their wine list has shrunk this year since COVID, but is still quite extensive. Their menu was pretty much the same as in the past.

The only downside was the traffic noise from 95 since we were outside but that was our choice.

Love this place, dine here 4 or 5 times a year, and, spent last New Year's Eve here as well.
Our food was wonderful on Friday night, as always. Sadly, our waiter was absolutely awful. Let our drinks sit on the bar for 15 minutes, never came over, we had to flag him down, and then, when we asked to order, he seemed annoyed. Once dinner was served, we never saw him again, we had to flag him down to order additional drinks.
I know it is a very stressful time for restaurants, so, we tried to be patient. I just thought that management should know about this issue.

We missed Panorama during the last few months! It felt great to be back, enjoy the incredibly delicious food and see the staff who are always so welcoming! We chose the restaurant week menu and boy did they deliver! Hen of the woods mushrooms are always a favorite of ours, their pasta is among the best we’ve had, and we were delighted by the familiar soft, pillowy bread for the table. Service was above and beyond what we expected! Thank you to everyone at the restaurant for making our experience so wonderful!

restaurant week , never saw Panorama on list before so we gave it a go.
WOW! impressive menu...2 of us ordered different items so we
could taste different items. The calamari were crispy, tasty, THE BEST!
I never order chicken but my friend did and it was outstanding...and I as
usual went for pasta and the cavatelle were superb.
Oh...and great interesting cocktails...subtle flavors.

Went for restaurant week and sat outside with my family. The food was fantastic but service was extremely slow. It was crowded for restaurant week but it took close to an hour to get our drinks and put our food order in. Once we ordered, food came out quickly and everything was excellent. Outside tables are adjacent to I-95 so it’s a little loud, if you aren’t opposed to sitting inside, take that option.

The food was outstanding although the menu was more limited than normal on their re-opening following COVID-19 closure. The roasted beet and watermelon salad is highly recommended as is the braciole. This is truly a wine lovers place to dine and the Maitre'd, Bill, provided outstanding guidance for wine pairings.
