Pietro's Italian - Walnut

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

    My boyfriend and I did a date night here last night and our meal was excellent! We ordered the Cesar salad to share and two medium pizzas. The pizza is cooked perfectly and the crust is very flavorful. I love that Pietros doesn’t scrimp on the toppings like some artisanal pizza places. They’re menu has a wide variety of Italian dishes but I definitely recommend the pizza! Service is also great. We were seated immediately and our waitress was so sweet. Looking forward to coming back again soon.

    The food is delicious and the service is great and prompt. I could wish for a bit more ambience. It looks too much like a bar. One of my favorites for a shared salad and pizza.

    I had the Fra Diablo which was very good - just enough heat so that you could enjoy it without having to reach for water constantly while eating. My children enjoyed the pizza. They were able to accommodate our seating request near the window. Did not appreciate the suggestion that there would be an additional charge to provide dipping oil with cracked pepper for bread (was not very flavorful). Overall would recommend.

    Ever since I was a kid, Pietro’s has always been one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Years later and the food is still delicious. They consistently provide great service & always have great food & drink options. I recommend trying: Caesar salad (the best!), spicy sausage & calamari, calamari, fried mozzarella, short rib pizza, Fra Diavolo, chicken Parmesan, four cheese pizza, bolognese & rigatoni alla vodka.

    Loved every single thing about this place. The food, the staff, the ambiance was all so so so good. We were visiting from Chicago for only a few days and we choose to dine here twice. The pizza is outstanding, the bolognese was perfectly cooked, we plan to come back to Philly just for Pietro’s.

    We needed a place for 7 people to have lunch mid-afternoon after my daughter graduated from Drexel. Pietro’s was friendly and accommodating. The food was great! The location in Center City was an easy walk to our accommodations at Rittenhouse Square.

    Hubby and I visited this place by chance in 2016 and it was absolutely delicious! (We had a build your own pizza) We decided to try it again and it hasn't changed.... pizza was still delicious! Only down side is that the prices are much higher. Each topping was$4! I'm aware all things have gone up in price, but still a little excessive for a topping. We consider it a splurge.

    Pizza is great and almost like in Italy! Pizza’s prices are way too high! Pietro’s pizza in Italy would be €8-10, not even half the price you pay in Philadelphia.

    Worked in the food service industry as a server, cook, bartender for over 20 years. I always critique the service and food internally and occasionally share a post whether I have a good experience or bad. Happy to say this was a good experience. Attentive waiter and support, food portions were hearty and the taste was excellent. Colleague had eggplant parm which was served with a side of pasta and I had the chicken Marsala with risotto. Will be back and will happily recommend this place to others based on the quality of the food and service.

    To start their is no air conditioning and was very hot in there. The table was not cleared unless asked. The menus were not cleared and they kept bringing food out and there was no where to put it as we were still eating appys. . The food was just average and temperature was not hot. The price value was not worth was we ate tonight. We were there to celebrate a graduation and select special occasion on the reservation and nothing was said at all. I would not go back
