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 and 121 South Street in Philadelphia. I hope that you enjoy our classic style pizzas and pasta specialties "alla familia" for many years to come. Buon appetito

This is our favorite Italian restaurant in Philadelphia! The homemade ravioli with blush sauce is amazing! Topped off with a delicious bottle of Merlot and Tiramisu for dessert...what more could we ask for? Oh, and the table for two in the front window is our favorite spot! In this very seat my husband dropped down on one knee to present me with my 25th anniversary ring...a moment that I will cherish as long as I live! We'll be back!

The front staff was not accommodating at all... the service staff was amazingly more accommodating but worried of being scalded for accommodating us. I was meeting the lawyers from another restaurateur family after attending an event in Ritenhouse Square and regardless that were tables available the front staff was not helpful at all...

The food was fine, but not outstanding; some dishes are too salty. Do not let them seat you close to the front door on a cold day- it will be chilly!

Arrived and was seated immediately; however, that was when the good service ended. Ordered 2 salads, pizza, and chicken dish. (Nothing special) It took 45 minutes for food to finally arrive. Asked for more bread, and waitress seemed to forget. Asked busboy who did get it. Restaurant was relatively empty, but we were smushed in a table in a corner. Maybe because had 2 kids with us. Food was fine once it came. We have eaten here before and never had a problem. Maybe it was an off day. Not sure. Finally after being there for almost 2 hours, stood up and went to waitress stand to pay the bill. If you don't have extra time, then I would skip it.

Food was excellent, as always. Only negative is we ordered ravioli from kids menu for 9 year old daughter and it came with 3 raviolis which was not enough food for $9. She was hungry after eating them.

One of our two pizzas came out unsliced, and then cold when it came back out sliced. We were hungry, so we ate it. The family sized salad was big and delicious.

They couldn't find our reservation so we had to wait. The waiter put the order in wrong as I am a vegetarian and he brought me rigatoni with meat sauce and meatballs instead of spaghetti and marina and when trying to send it back he and the manager tried to talk me into just eating it. I finally got my spaghetti 20 minutes later to go as my co worker was finished eating and it was late. No thanks I will not be returning!

Fantastic food and service! Our food took a little longer than expected without us even knowing, and the manager gave us a free dessert and coffee! We were already extremely happy with our dining experience and that made it even better. Very excited to go back and try the pizza!
