Italian with a side of opera
When Sylvester Stallone was in Philadelphia filming Rocky Balboa, this is where you’d find him — because Victor Cafe was actually the stand-in for the fictitious “Adrian’s” restaurant in the movie. But Sly also loved the food, and being serenaded by the singing wait staff.
First opened in 1933, Victor Cafe is the only restaurant in Philadelphia that continues the old world tradition of waiters and waitress performing operatic arias for diners each and every night. Paired with the awesome menu of traditional Italian cuisine, patrons can look forward to a unique dining experience.
