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.

    We ate outside so the ambiance and noise levels were related to the outdoor space. Pizza and salsas were very good.

    What a great find. We had a concert on South Street so we booked this restaurant for a meal before the show. The owner is super nice and accommodating. We ordered a pizza and it tasted delicious! It was super authentic just like eating in Naples, Italy. They have plenty of seating, room for private parties and a full service bar. I would recommend this place when in this part of Philadelphia.

    Pietro's is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be their vodka sauce. Both locations have great food and are so beautiful.

    service wasn't that great; they didn't have many high chairs or kids menus; maybe they don't get a lot of kids there. I did appreciate having a place that was comfortable and we had enough space for our kids

    We've been going to Pietro's for over 20 years and the food and service have always been consistently good. The restaurant is clean and spacious and great for families and larger groups. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large. Pietro's also offers complimentary, fresh out of the oven rolls with dinner. A must have on their menu is their brick oven pizza-it's one of the best around. Besides the food being so good, another reason that keeps us coming back is the staff at Pietro's. The manager, Angelo, is warm and welcoming and always making sure everyone's experience is top notch. The waiters, waitresses, and bartenders are friendly and attentive. Overall, our experience each and every time we have eaten at Pietro's has been nothing short of excellent!

    They made a mistake with the order and took the the food which is still more than half from the table and give us a small portion and charged for both plates. The manager did not even come and let us know why she is charging.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
