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.

Our appetizer of sausage, fried calamari and arugala was wonderful as was the seafoodFraDiavalo. Our grandkids loved the Margarita pizza and spagetti with butter and parmesan cheese. Will definitely go back.

Food was great, very large portions. We started with the spicy calamari it was so delicious along with a caesar salad. For my entree I got the chicken marsala and it was HUGE, very tasty as well. Everyone that I dined with loved their meal as well - ravioli, spaghetti and meatball and the linguini celo dish. I would recommend Piertro's Italian to family and friends.

Service was great. Bread is delicious. Was a little but disappointed in the pizza. It wasn't that good or I should say as good as it has been in the past. I have been coming to this restaurant and the one in Center City for over 20 years.

Reliably good pizzas , chewy on the inside and with a crisp crust .
Love the spaghetti sides with the entrees.
Enormous salads that can feed a family

Service was exceptional. The bartender checked in on us often as we waited for the rest of party. I enjoyed my eggplant Parmesan and my hubby said chicken Parmesan just okay. Pasta could have been fresher. Rest of party seemed happy with their meals.

Old school Italian but the pasta and bolognese was not good. Coworker was not impressed with his dish either.

Lacked flavor and was basically no better than what you can cook at home.

Argula salad was good!

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

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.

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.
