Italian
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 Patsys, Nick and Angelo have enjoyed their pizzas, pastas and salads for years. Here in Philadelphia and New Jersey, you can feast on my Uncle Angelo secret recipe dishes at our three Pietro's locations: 1714 Walnut Street, 121 South Street in Philadelphia, and 236 North Radnor Chester Road in Radnor, Pa.

Private room and outdoor deck available for up to 100 guests.

Chicken limone is some of the best chicken I’ve ever had! The Italian Mojito is a highlight on the drinks menu

Not very good. First we ordered a seasonal drink. They were out of it. Ordered a peroni draft - “the keg just kicked”. Ordered a sangria. Undrinkable and returned it. Later on I asked for a bud light bottle. All out. The pizza? My daughter and I left half of it there. Simply not good. My wife’s pasta dish saved the meal. Avoid.

The food was delicious as always but the service left much to be desired. Our waitress was very slow getting our drinks, our food and responding to requested refills. The manager was attentive in asking about the food. No one asked about the service.

I have always enjoyed Pietros; however very disappointed with dinner on 7/28/21. It was my birthday and I took my son and his family along with my mom and my husband to celebrate my 65th birthday. My son and I ordered pasta Bologna’s which we could tell had been microwaved (not fresh). My mom had chicken parmigiana and the chicken was over cooked. Won’t be returning there any time soon. Also many flies in the dining area

Warm draft beer and undercooked fried calamari was disappointing. Usually, the food is better.

Had a big group of girls for a getaway weekend. Waitress wasn’t overly happy to be serving 8 of us but the food was amazing. Risotto balls are incredible and their simple marinara sauce was to die for.

We went here last night 6/12 for a friends bday. They sat all 8 of us no problem. The service was great. The food was amazing. Being a New Yorker who moved to Philly, it’s been really hard finding a good place for Pizza. The appetizers were to die for, the pizza was incredible and the entrees were amazing. Recommended for every occasion.

We had a great dining experience. We came in from Ventnor City for the evening. The only constructive criticism would be that the lag time of food coming out between courses could have been a little quicker, otherwise everything was amazing. We would definitely recommend. Thank you for a nice dinner.

We booked for 7:30 outdoor and there were no tables when we arrived (on time) so we had to wait 40-45’ for the table. Our impression was that they just gave the table away first come first serve basis- so why offering online booking?

Mother’s Day dinner for a party of six. Huge portions, all pasta was perfectly al dente, all dishes were exceptional. Only minor complaints were that the hostess and waitstaff did not wear masks, and when we arrived for our 7:30 reservation, we were told that the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes so we had to quickly order our drinks, appetizers and entrees. Felt a little rushed. Notwithstanding, would highly recommend.

I have always loved the food at Pietros. Their pizzas are very good. I had a pasta dish with chicken, arugula and grape tomatoes that was absolutely delicious.

Service was horrible!!! Ordered a salad for an appetizer and 2 entrees. Waited 30 minutes for the salad to arrive to have our entrees arrive immediately after salad. Our entrees were placed on the bar until we finished the salad. The entrees were cold and we were disappointed so greatly that we asked for the entrees to be boxed. We could not find our waitress to get a glass of water. She placed both dinners sideways in the bag so when we got home the juices from the entrees were in the bottom of the bag. Our kitchen was a mess! We were so disappointed that we threw both dinners out in the trash!! It was a waste of money! Normally have a decent time there but the waitress definitely would not make us return.

Great food. Limited menu, it seems due to COVID-19, which is understandable. Definitely wanted a scampi option, usually standard fare, but it was not an option.
What was available was tasty though!
