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

We usually love Pietro’s but this was not their best effort. Wine, bread, and salad came promptly, but the main course (pasta) came over a half hour after the salad was cleared. Neither pasta dish was up to par this time, unfortunately. The staff was apologetic and comped the second glass of wine, but something was clearly off. I hope they can get it corrected before we go again.

Why is it every time I dine here they do not put my Open Table reservation through. The next day I get an email from Open Table asking I did NOT keep my reservation.
This is the last time I am never going back.
I got a Caesar Salad with grilled chicken $22.68 cents when I was done tipping it was over $25.00
To me that is ridiculously too high a price for a bowl of lettuce!!!!!!I could buy a whole chicken for what they charged me.
The food was good I must admit the server very good Vilma.
But way too expensive for a salad and two pieces of chicken.
And they seem to always screw up my Open table reservation.
I will go to Fairmount and have a fantastic Caesar Salad with grilled chicken for $17.00
Believe me it is the VERY VERY BEST Caesar Salad you will ever eat. Come to Fairmount.

My friends and I ate at Pietro's prior to a show at the Forest theater. Sitting down at 6:15 on a Friday night, we were feeling a little pressured for time, but we need not have worried. Our waiter was great, bringing rolls and refilling beverages without being asked. We enjoyed a seasonal butternut squash salad, the chicken parm with spaghetti and a large short rib pizza that the three of us shared equally. There was plenty of food and it was all delicious. I would suggest Pietro's in the future when in the city.

Pietro’s is always amazing!! My husband,son and I always take the drive down from New York to Pietro’s at least twice a month and make it a weekend getaway. The ambiance is nice, location is great and the quality and quantity of food is worth the drive. We always order the Linguini Ceilo and rigatoni alla vodka pasta their both amazing, so if your on a diet throw that away for a day and use Pietro’s as your cheat day because your going to want to eat all of your pasta!!!

Pleasantly surprised having stumbled upon this restaurant via Open Table. Unpleasantly surprised when I received a message from Open Table mid meal accusing me of not showing up for my reservation. I fault the restaurant for this as it reflects poorly on the client when it’s not their fault. Otherwise, thought the food and service were of solid quality. Wish I knew my servers name because he was incredibly thoughtful in suggestions for the amount of food I ordered since I was dining solo. Greatly appreciated this! Grazie!

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Stopped in for dinner with friends and all of our meals were delicious. Portions were sizable at a perfect price point with attentive service as well as a great selection of wines by the glass. The restaurant decor was lovely, yet comfortable for casual dining.

Lekker gegeten. We hadden voor 5 gereserveerd via Open Table. Tien we aankwamen was het restaurant leeg en toch probeerden ze ons de slechtste rafel naast de wc en keuken te geven. Toen ik bezwaar maakten mochten we zelf een veel betere tafel uitkiezen. Verder prima eten, enorme familiepizza van goede kwaliteit en ook een lekkere salade met spinazie. Op verzoek maakten ze ook een focaccia. De bruschetta was niet zo bijzonder, droog en met olijven i.p.v. verse knoflook en olijfolie. Al met al zeker een aanrader.
