    We went back to Pietro's for Dinner. As ever the filet mignon was fabulous.The mushroom soup is the best. Fabulous Shrimp Lejon. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the side dish of au gratin potatoes, not much flavor or seasoning. The restaurant is a warm and cozy place to us. It is somewhere in which we feel very comfortable. The hospitality of the owner is tremendous and our waiter was excellent. We will be back many times in future.

    My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Pietro's (our first time there). We both ordered the sirloin strip but I got the regular and he ordered the 30 day aged, special steak. I actually liked mine better and it was much less expensive. The smashed potatoes were great, the mushroom side was okay and I did not like the sauteed spinach. Our waiter was terrific and the service was excellent.

    Was in the west suburbs of Philly on Business and wanted to have a good piece of beef, but am tired of the same old places in King of Prussia. Pietro's was a very pleasant find, great food, good service, and pleasant surroundings. Beef was tasty and prepared as requested, and the sides were prepared well, especially the onion rings. Will be on my short list next trip to Philly.

    We went here for Mother's Day dinner with our well-behaved 7-year old daughter. We were going to be seated in the dining room by one waiter, but we were wished away to a table in the bar area by a more senior waiter. It was so dark that you could'nt even see the menus (having an iPhone was a plus) with a big screen TV on with a game, next to the bar and stairs to the bathroom. Food was great and the table service was stellar. Perhaps better not to bring kids if you want a table with ambiance? Will not return.

    this is our favorite steak restaurant in Chester County. The steaks are savory and melt in your mouth. It is expensive, dinner for 4 with 3 martinis and 2 desserts, came to almost $300, but when you want a special meal in an old school dining establishment, this is a great place to go. Our waiter couldn't have been more attentive, we actually joked that there was a microphone at the table, because as soon as we mentioned something, he showed up to take care of it. The dining room is pleasant with brick walls and dark woods. All in all, a nice place to have a good steak dinner with friends.

    This will be the third time I went to pietros prime and I have to say I have been consistently happy and impressed every time. I love the vibe there with live music and a darker setting- it's very romantic but not too loud where you can't hold a conversation . The service has been great each time with a knowledgable and nice waiter/waitress...and the food is just delicious. Yes it is a little pricey but well worth it. I had the filet oscar style and it was out of this world delicious!!i think my man and I have found our new favorite spot!

    Food was a little less on the expected/ anticipated. My cream corn was a little bland. My wife's shrimp was more of a blackened style. Too well done on the grill. She was not happy with it. Her steak as well as mine was excellent. Our soups were excellent and would be ordered again. Service and friendliness of staff couldn't have been better. We will eat here again. Please don't "fire " the chef based on our review. We live in California and will take Philadelphia restaurants any time.

    Love the live music at Pietro's! 4-5 nights a week! We went with friends and they really enjoyed their food, steak and sea scallops. For us being vegan at a steak house is never easy, but John, our waiter found one appetizer on the lunch menu that we could have, but it is our only choice, kind of a mushroom salad that was a little redundant after our green salads. The beer on tap was REALLY expensive, and not that great, so next time I will stick to a basic bottle beer! John was totally cool! Wonderful personality and attentive without being annoying. He is probably studying for his PhD! Very intelligent! We especially appreciated his not treating us like we were weird for being vegan! Went out of his way for us!

    This was my second visit to Pietro's. Both times, the food was superb. My most recent visit left a lot to be desired in terms of atmosphere. Besides the 5 other couples seated in the back room was a table of approx 25 guys out for a bachelor party dinner. Needless to say, the noise level was annoying not to mention the language that was being used at the table. Next time, put them in a private room. I expect better from a restaurant of this caliber.

    Had an excellent family diner for a combination of birthdays and anniversaries. All of our steaks were excellent. Read some earlier reviews about the wait time for service. This did not occur. With drinks and appetizers, the time between everything was as expected. Special kudos to our waiter, Larry. He was especially attentive to my 93 year old moth-in-law who was nervous going to this restaurant.

    I've enjoyed m visits to Peitros. I feel it's almost at the level of a Philly restaurant. They have a nice selection. They're pricing is a little high I feel considering it's more of a local place. But everything is delicious! They have great martini's. The shrimp cocktail is wonderful. I've had a few of their steaks and they were all good. I really like the waitstaff, they are always friendly and seem to do a good job of making you feel like VIP's!

    Girls night out and a birthday celebration was made perfect by the staff, food, and libations at Pietro's. We had appetizers, main course, sides, dessert and an assortment of martinis and wines. Everything was delicious. The steaks were a special treat, cooked to perfection but so was the sea bass and lobster tail. We loved the appetizer special, lobster tempura.what a treat! We had great desserts also including a lemon cake and cheese cake. Our waitress was extremely attentive and helpful. We sat (by request) in the bar area by the fireplace and stayed for almost 3 hours lingering over after dinner drinks and enjoying the live music. Thanks Marissa and crew at Pietro's ..it was a great birthday experience.

    Excellent food, but staff does not compliment it. Meal included Prime Rib, Lobster Ravioli (special), Smashed Potato and Asparagus. Food was excellent and you won't be disappointed in the taste, presentation, or portions. I expected this place to be upscale, so I was disappointed that the staff. Upon arrival it was uncomfortable as Host was staring at us (my wife), but provided no greeting. Restaurant was empty, but did fill up over the 90 minutes. Waitress was friendly but, we lost her as the meal went on and she was assigned multiple tables. She did apologize for her best friend being seated, which didn't help. I would recommend, but warn of my experience with hopes that it was a fluke. Would love to see this chef succeed.

    The food at Pietro's is AMAZING. No matter what we order, the food is always consistently cooked to perfection, flavorful, and beyond delicious. Since it opened, it has been one of our favorite places. Unfortunately, we can only go there when we have roughly three and a half to FOUR HOURS to spare. We show up on time, with a reservation, and our tables are never ready for at least an hour. While every server is friendly & personable, service always takes an extremely long time- long time lapses occur between when we are seated and when our drink orders are placed, and then until our drinks arrive, and then it's another while before our orders are taken, followed by another eternity until food comes. They need a better system!

    My wife and I have known about Pietro's for some time but have never been. We are truly glad that we went. We don't often eat steak, but when you're at a steakhouse it's almost and obligation. What a treat! So much flavor and wonderfully prepared. The decor is warm and pleasant, and the service was top notch. Highly recommend making reservations. There weren't more than a hand full of parties when we arrived at 6:00 PM. Within 30 minutes there were almost no tables left. We probably will reserve this restaurant for special occasions due to the price (which was worth every penny) but Pietro's is a must for anyone in the West Chester area who has never been.

    We recently moved into the West Chester area coming from Philadelphia. We typically head into the city for special dinner events but since moving we are trying more local restaurants. At the suggestion of some friends I decided on Pietro's and couldn't have been happier. The food was excellent and they had a lot of specials adds to the menu. Being used to city prices I was pleasantly surprised when the check came, not to say it was a cheap meal but well worth it. If the rock shrimp fritters are on the menu I highly reccomend them.
