Address The Victor Café 1303 Dickinson St, Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA

The Victor Café is more than just an Italian restaurant. Here, all dishes are served by singers. It is not uncommon for them to sing opera arias to the delight of the customers.

It was at the end of Prohibition, in 1933, that the Victor Café was inaugurated in a place that had once housed a gramophone store. Regularly, artists come to sing in the restaurant to entertain the customers. In 1979, an apprentice tenor was hired as a waiter and took the habit of playing his scales during his service, thus inaugurating a concept that is still relevant today. A true Italian enclave in Philadelphia, Victor Café is also a meeting place for all opera music lovers. Here you can enjoy delicious food in a setting as rich as it is steeped in history, to the rhythm of magnificent singing tours.
