    I went for the Rocky experience and good Italian food. I did not know about the opera scene. What a great experience even not being an opera fan. Short opera songs sung by the wait staff every 20 minutes was a delight. Unbelievable talent by the staff! Definitely would go again.

    Delightfully cozy atmosphere, excellent service, talented singers. Very good food. (and efficient, helpful valet parking, a great asset in this old residential neighborhood with classically narrow Philly streets. The Victor Cafe is every bit as good as its historic reputation.

    We went there to celebrate birthdays. The food was wonderful as always, and the service was outstanding. All the staff were so kind. We very much enjoyed the opera singing from staff. They were all incredibly talented and amazing singers.
