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

The food had ingredients in it that weren’t listed on the menu. Read multiple reviews saying the food was really good and all but it was not, in my opinion. Perhaps this was due to it being Valentine’s Day but if I’m paying for something I expect a certain amount of quality. Also, I asked if I could substitute the pork in a pasta for sausage and the waiter said that it would be an up-charge of no more than $8, which seems pretty ridiculous. I’m not adding anything to the pasta, it’s a substitution. If anything, it should’ve been $2-3 up-charge at most. Will not be revisiting this place.

Never disappoints. Everything was wonderful. I had the special, a penne baked with shrimp and it was wonderful. One of the first times I strayed from my favorite, the eggplant parmesan.

From the start the welcome and all the service was warm, literally, and friendly. We started with their shrimp with greens appetizer which was excellent. Shrimp were split, no tails, no coating and cooked to perfection. Egg plant parm was excellent and the tomato sauce on the accompanying pasta was very tasty and a perfect combo for the main dish. My wife had chicken limone which was tasty but we would prefer it with a bit more lemon flavor and more capers as a part of the dish. Service was great as well with our waitress attentive but not intrusive. All in, we enjoyed it fully, will go there again and would recommend for any function you might be attending in the area.

Food is always on point but every time I go as a two top they put us at a small table and there is no room for a pizza let alone appetizers and a drink. It is always crammed and hard to enjoy my food and this time they stuck us in the bar area.

Sadly this place keeps getting worse.
This used to be my go-to place. And each time I try it, I remind myself why I have not gone for a month.
Servers don't seem like they want to be there. We order a salad for 1$14.00 that's supposed to have tomatoes carrots etcc.. thier were literally 4 little cherry tomatoes and a sprinkle of shredded carrots.

One waiter brings out the apps, and 30 seconds later and another server is bringing out our pizzas and salads.

This use to be one of the best places for the money to go in the city. Now they raised thier prices changed the menu, lowered the quality and quantity and lost all the heart for what it takes to be a good restaurant with great service.

Great Italian restaurant in Philly - food delicious (our group had cauliflower appetizer, two salads, chicken with germelli pasta, salmon, another pasta dish, and pizza) generous portions and the best part was the great service from our server Vilma. Definitely worth returning here!

Our first time here but have eaten at other Estia restaurants. Very good food and service. I loved the Fava bean dip for the bread and the homemade fettuccine with the veal limon.

We were promptly seated for our reservation for 7 people at 7pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very crowded and loud. Many people were waiting to be seated so I highly recommend making a reservation. The server got our drink order pretty quick and then followed up shortly for our dinner order. Service fell off a bit after that....had to ask several times for things but the food was delicious. We had pizza, fried mozzarella, eggplant parmesan, and cheese raviolis which filled us completely leaving no room for dessert. We would definitely go back for another meal.

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this restaurant about two years Ago when we were spending the weekend in the city. We had originally had reservations at a different restaurant but were highly unsatisfied with our order so we decided to look for something else. We're both huge pizza lovers but felt really overdressed for a pizza place. I am so glad we found your restaurant and we've made it a monthly thing to have a date night here. Thank you for the great service, food and ambiance!! Can't wait to go back next month!!

Service was friendly but sluggish, it taking repeated requests for refills on water just as one example. The food was quite good, with everyone’s meal to their liking. The noise level made conversation difficult, however.

Waiter seemed too interested in just taking our order and nothing else. Came over 30 seconds after sitting down and asked if we’re ready to order. Nothing special about the meal
