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

Outdoor isn’t a cute as it looks but overall the food was better than the atmosphere and service from management.

Salad was delicious and plenty to share. Pizza was hot and yummy. We sat in the outside structure which is very sweet. The noise we experienced came from the hotrodders on the street!

Pietro's never disappoints and is one of my go to places for out of town guests. The food is always great and the service is always excellent. Prices are reasonable when you consider the quality of the food. I highly recommend it.

Very nice dinner, fun cocktails, great bread, large portions and well-cooked, very tasty entrees. Appreciated ability to swap for zucchini "pasta" as an option. Service was excellent as well.

Pietro's is one of my favorite places in Philly; I brought my parents here for an early dinner while they were visiting me from DC. The food is ridiculously good. The rigatoni vodka is the best I've ever had, my mom's chicken parm was delicious, and my dad would not stop talking about how good his pizza was (it was some kind of spicy pie). Service is fantastic, too. I cannot say enough good things about this place

We ate dinner outside in the partially enclosed structure built to protect against Covid. The setting, food and service were perfect. The noise level was much better outside than inside most restaurants, but music from loudspeakers mounted on the exterior of the restaurant added noise.

We ate outdoors at a table for two. No problem with the pedestrians passing or fumes from cars driving nearby since the pods blocked the emissions. Our waiter was so considerate when he noticed the sun in my husband's eyes that he instinctively set up the umbrella to make it more comfortable. Service was excellent. Pizza was outstanding! We ordered onions and roasted peppers. The hostess kept checking on us. When we arrived home we received a telephone call from Pietro's telling us that they found a pair of eyeglasses underneath our table and thought it could perhaps belong to us, and they did. We will pick them up tomorrow. Such a thoughtful gesture. We will definitely be back.

Went for dinner Monday. Our server was pleasant and well versed on the menu. My friend has ciliacs so she needed gluten free options and he was clear about her choices and even warned her of possible items with cross contamination. Unfortunately, pizza was one of those items and we originally went there because it said online they have gluten free pizza, which they do, but it’s cooked in the same oven so that wasn’t an option. We went with roasted veggies, Bolognese with zucchini noodles and a huge salad. All were absolutely delicious! So good, that I returned the next day for lunch with someone else. Bread and dip and butter that they provide on the table was also yummy! Will definitely return soon.

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.
