A word from Pietro's Coal Oven Pizza - South Street
Pizza is a family affair for me. My Uncle Angelo arrived in America in the 1930s with a passion for pizza. He worked hard and eventually bought his own pizzeria in Brooklyn. It was there that Uncle Angelo invented a recipe for coal oven pizza. That recipe has been perfected over 60 years and passed down through the generations. My brothers and cousins in New York know the recipe. Diners at Patsy's, Nick's and Angelo's have enjoyed their pizzas, pastas and salads for years. Here in Philadelphia and New Jersey, you can feast on my Uncle Angelo's secret recipe dishes at our three Pietro's locations: 1714 Walnut Street, 121 South Street in Philadelphia and 140 W. Route 70 in New Jersey. I hope that you enjoy our classic style pizzas and pasta specialties "alla familia" for many years to come. Buon appetitoContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "My family celebrated my son's birthday here and had a wonderful time. The restaurant was very spacious and well lit. Our server was wonderful and very attentive. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly, my husband had a seafood medley and that was also delicious. The bruschetta and shrimp appetizers were delicious also. Overall great food."

  • "My friends and I are always satisfied at Pietro's on South Street. We're fortunate that it is within walking distance of where we live. The pizza is among the best in the city and oh, the warmth and fragrance from those brick furnaces! Their Mediterranean salad is also a favorite. Both the wine and food are affordable, and the service is always very friendly and accommodating."

  • "Long story short: 1) I went there for Valentine's day with my girlfriend. 2) had an appetizer and a salad 3) half an hour later I stood up and asked Lauren (server) about our main course and she just said that the ''kitchen was Busy''....... Terrible!"

  • "If you think a Caesar salad with grilled chicken sounds hum-drum, you HAVE TO try Pietro's! Their Caesar salad is among the best I've had, the dressing flavorful and well-balanced, croutons crunchy but not tooth-breaking, and big slabs of wonderful Parmesan cheese. But it's the grilled chicken that is so surprising. I have quite honestly not experienced grilled chicken this wonderful anywhere else - ever. Every time I order it, I am once again amazed at how much flavor they manage to get into a piece of ordinary chicken! The chicken is served on the side, in full size, thinly pounded breasts, char-grilled to perfection and pre-sliced for easy separation. Everyone we have introduced it to has agreed - it's the best!"

  • "We miss the Pietro's they closed in Marlton, NJ so we just drove to the S. Street location for our favorite mista salad with caesar dressing and pizza with proscuitto. We stayed for dessert and the cannoli was so delicious, pls. come back to New Jersey!!! I had their eggplant parm in the NJ location with pasta before and that was also excellent... Very basic interior, no table clothes... Good amount of couples and families but I think we only saw 1 baby/child..."

  • "My family and I love this place. Great food, service and the atmosphere is like you are eating in a Piazza in Italy. Their house insalada is awesome. Brick oven pizza, and the cannoli's are so yummy."

  • "Perfect location to grab a bite and walk half a block to watch the fireworks. We were looking for a mid-priced italian with a lot of menu options that would satisfy our three college-aged children. I've eaten at Pietro's on Walnut several times in the past and always enjoyed it. This location did not disappoint.Our server was excellent, just spoke very quietly, which was a little difficult as the place was buzzing with conversation when he was taking our order. We'll be back! It would be wonderful to sit in the front near the bar on on a nice spring or summer evening and people watch."

  • "The service was terrible. Server would just put drinks and dishes at of table and expected us to pass them around. Wouldn't do separate checks even though the resturant was not full. Two people had to send pasta back since it was so salty."

  • "If you like thin crust specialty pizzas, Pietro's is the way to go. We ordered a susage and peppers pie. It was cooked perfectly. The crust was crunchy but not too hard. The cheese used was fresh mozzeralla and the sauce was delicious. It was very quiet and and not crowded. I definitely recommend for a dat night or family gathering. It is a very quaint, family-owned, Italian resturaunt. The prices are great too! There is also a nice size bar and it is near a couple of Irish pubs."

  • "We chose this spot and made reservations early since we knew it was marathon weekend and things would be crowded. Despite getting to the restaurant on time, they were behind on reservations and seemed unprepared to accommodate our party. Our waitress was friendly, but also seemed to have difficulty keeping up with the number of orders she was handling. I have been going to Pietros in Center City for many years, but was ultimately somewhat disappointment with the lack of preparation of the one on South Street."

  • "The light bulbs in the lanterns throughout the dining area are really unpleasant. the large room is fairly dark and the lights remind one of automobile high-beams aimed at your eyes. Perhaps turning on overhead lights and using either frosted bulbs would improve the situation. Perhaps this is why the place was relatively empty. I would return if the lighting was improved. Really not enjoyable as it is now. Lighting in the Walnut street location is far better and makes a big difference in terms of enjoying the meal. Pizza is great."
