A Philadelphia landmark since 1918, the Victor Café is an Italian restaurant that cultivates old traditions and seamlessly blends them with new ones. Originally DiStefano's Gramaphone shop, the family-owned and operated cafe keeps the musical legacy alive with genuine memorabilia, and most uniquely: singing operatic waitstaff. With classic Italian dishes and unforgettable live performances, we invite you to join us for a memorable dining experience. Reservations suggested.
