The food was great and the service was exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic. There was a beautiful full moon out that night and we could enjoy it from our seats as this restaurant overlooks the Delaware River.

We attended a Sweet Sixteen party for our granddaughter on Oct. 2, 2016. The restaurant experience was wonderful from the time we walked through the door. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. The building was a former docking area along the Delaware River. The interior ambience is spectacular! This and the beautiful river views. We had a section of... More

I enjoy doing reviews however doing this one is a challenge. We were celebrating a birthday and looking forward to good food and desserts. Neither were good. Well,my entree was not. Caesar salad had no taste,pasta was too "al dente" other people said food was just ok. Service was painfully slow and the restaurant was not busy. Only three other... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. A very nice menu, excellent food but slow service. The inside of the restaurant has a view of the inner harbor and the pleasure craft, that are docked outside the restaurant.

We happened into this place while enjoying Penn's Landing. There were few people there for lunch, which concerned me. I had nothing to fear! The gnocchi was perfectly prepared and the squash was much better than the usual side dish. The river view helped create a perfect lunch.

We were here in a group to celebrate a work anniversary and we had good expectatons. Orders were taken and the appetisers were delivered and duly demolished (bruschetta was a little hard, but tasty) but there seemed to be a very long wait to get everyone's food, as it was delivered in batches. This wouldn't usually be an issue but... More

Food and service are excellent!!! Try the veal saltimboca or veal fungi, or chicken parm. Enjoy the duck boats going up and down the Delaware River right outside the restaurant.

Our entire family enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal with great service. We highly recommend the veal saltimboca and veal fungi (mushrooms). Our sons both had chicken parmagana and highly recommend it. You can enjoy your meal and watch all the Duck Boats go up and down the Delaware River.

Before going here, I read the reviews. It seemed people either loved it or hated it. I took a chance and was glad I did. The atmosphere was very inviting with big picture windows on both sides of a long narrow room affording a view of the harbor as well as the street. The staff was very friendly, welcoming, and...
