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

I had the short ribs over gnocchi. It was absolutely delicious. The gnocchi was seriously the lightest I’ve ever had. The portion was enough to take home leftovers.

Pietro's is a comfortable neighborhood Italian restaurant with authentic classics and crave-worthy pizzas. Good for a date with my wife, dinner out with my family, or a quick lunch while shopping in Center City Philadelphia. Pietro's rarely disappoints.

I have been to Pietros a lot with my parents. And the food is always good but sometimes the nose level is sometimes noisy depending on when you go but I love their food and my mom likes the cauliflower pizza and I like the pepperoni pizza it’s good for pizza but not for pasta

Food delicious, atmosphere insane... There was a line outside for hours. I made reservations so got in but still had to wait. Next time I go, it will not be on a weekend. Menu has alot to choose from and their drinks are not watered down. Our waitress was excellent too.

Went to Philly to meet up with a bunch of friends and decided to come here for dinner. The food was very tasty and the food arrived quickly too. The only downside was I guess it was super busy so the service was just ok at best. We kept needing to find and flag someone down to help us (order, water refills, etc). But like I said, it seemed to be a very busy Saturday so not a big deal - especially since we weren't in a rush. I would definitely go back :)

Fairly casual, relaxed spot. Great place for a delicious crowd-pleasing Italian meal. Have had great pasta dishes, appetizers, chicken dishes, eggplant parm. Great portions and they’ll even substitute with lower-carb alternatives including “zoodles” or cauliflower crust.

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...
