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

Just a very standard dining experience.

Waiter was nice, food was mediocre (pizza had an extremely sweet sauce), and food was slightly expensive for it was.

We dined outside. The only ones there so it was nice and quiet with 2 heaters! And great service.

The calamari and Mediterranean salad were both very good. We really enjoyed the white bean and olive oil dip for the bread

The pizza itself, the main reason we came, was somewhat dry so a little disappointing.

But overall a very nice experience and will continue to recommend this restaurant.

We sat outdoors at Pietros for brunch and overall had a lovely experience. Given COVID restrictions, Pietros has build a three walled structure with spacing and plastic between tables to ensure safe dining. There are heaters inside so even though it was only about 40 degrees we were comfortable the whole time. All servers are masked. The food was absolutely delish; although they no longer have a brunch menu, just lunch. The grilled vegetables, shrimp, risotto and Parmesan chicken were all excellent. They still do $5 brunch drinks on Sunday, which we sampled all of and were all excellent. Our server was incredibly kind and attentive. I highly recommend Pietros.

The service was excellent. The staff could not be more welcoming, helpful, and charming. The outdoor space was done well - tables are separated with plastic or vinyl sheets. It was decorated in a festive way to give a nice hygge vibe. They start the meal with warm rolls, which reminded me of the "before" time, when we would go out and eat way too many carbs. The other food was ok. This is not my favorite restaurant for food, but my young adult kids were in town and I take them to Pietro's because they love the Bolognese sauce. We ordered a bottle of wine for the table, which was reasonably priced and quite good. I'd recommend getting pasta or pizza. The Bolognese is quite good!

Always consistent food and good service, was not very busy during lunch so we appreciate the efforts that the restaurant made to keep us warm. I was there with my young daughter and she love the spaghetti and the relatively friendly atmosphere for a child. Thank you so much to Continue to serve the city during this time because I know how difficult it is, but it is very important for families and people to be able to dine out during this pandemic.

I personally have been going to this Walnut Street location for about six years. Great Staff! Friendly People! And all the more important good food, even through this disruption of SARSCOV19, I still enjoy my experience and recommend anyone in the Rittenhouse Area - Center City to visit.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks, John Z

I’ve been here a few times now, both pre and post quarantine. Outdoor and indoor. I like it a lot, and the food is always consistently good as is service. However my major complaint is the dipping oil they used to serve vs. the white bean purée they serve currently. I loved that dipping oil. The first time I tried it, I asked for a to go cup for it. I barely eat the white bean purée (and to be honest I did not know what it was until I asked.)

Thank goodness for outdoor dining!

Thoroughly enjoyed my cocktail and chicken limone and if Pietros invests in heat lamps I will be back for more.

Otherwise I’ll return after I’m vaccinated or warm weather returns, whichever comes first.

Stay safe, guys and Happy Holidays!

We came in toward the end of the evening, but they didn’t treat us that way. The food was delicious, our server was attentive and he waited on us using proper COVID-19 protocols, meaning that he cared enough about our health to see us again.

The food was excellent. Our server was just ok. I told her that I was gluten free and there croutons on my salad. The person that cleared the table next to us dropped dishes that hit my son's girlfriend and not one person from management came over to see if she was ok.
