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

This place is awesome!!! The food was OUTSTANDING ... a REAL cannoli, amazing pizza ... chicken and eggplant Parma beyond wonderful! Even the bread was fab !! Our waiter Christian was great ... would definitely come back without hesitation ... just want to sit outside as ambiance looked so good out there (before it gets hot)

Great experience! First time being here for my girlfriend and I, we both went with pasta dishes and we were both highly impressed! Food came out pretty quick and was so hot and tasteful. The drinks were great too! We went on a Saturday night and the ambiance was great, noisy but not in a bad way. Would definitely go again, next time we will try the pizza!

This place has really good food. However, my roommates and I dined out for my friend’s birthday and the service was terrible. Since there is an hour and half limit for dining in-person, we ordered two pizzas within the first 5 minutes after sitting down. We did not receive dinner for an hour and ten minutes after we ordered. The waitress only stopped at our table twice during this period to refill our waters and tell us that the kitchen was backed up. The first time the waitress came by (after 40 mins) she told us the pizzas would be out any minute. Then we proceeded to wait another half an hour before getting our food. We watched every other table that was seated after us receive pizzas before us. The server wasn’t even apologetic. Normally, we like Pietro’s. This experience was pretty horrendous though and we will rethink before dining here again.

Food was delicious. Pasta alla Vodka very nice! Big portion though. Could have been split between 2 people.

We had a great lunch.

Music outside could have been lower to make it easy to talk.

Overall, great experience!

Good Evening, originally our seat was all the way in the back next to the kitchen . We weren’t able to get the attention of the manager that was a few tables away I think it was because he was cleaning the table so diligently. So I Kindly asked the hostess to sit us at another table they moved us two tables up which was ok for what it was. overall the food was good , our waitress Damaris was really nice. Will visit again and choose outside dining.

Never a disappointment! We ate outside due to regulations, didn't particularly care for our table location because random people are walking through, we even had a stranger stop and compliant how good our food looked (a little uncomfortable) however our location did not take away from our delicious food. My only suggestion would be to have all of the outside seating somewhat covered -away from the public walking pass. They do offer this type of outdoor seating but not with every outdoor table.

Repeat customers because we enjoyed our lunch the first time and wanted to have the same experience. And it was. Sitting outside is a bit noisy, especially on a lovely, busy afternoon, but worth it. Give it a try - great lunch prices as well.

Visiting from out of town. Wanted Italian restaurant with wide variety of choices, outdoor seating, full bar that was walking distance from our hotel. Food was excellent. We had cauliflower appetizer, husband had Eggplant Parm with zucchini noodles on side, adult son had chicken limon, and I had Rigotoni alla vodka. Portions were generous and all were wonderful. We were very very happy. Service was excellent. We had a great time. Highly recommend Pietro’s.
