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

Dined outside recently on a rare gorgeous July day in Philadelphia! Pizza (burrata cheese, pistachio, arugula, mortadella and honey) was excellent; appetizers (fried cauliflower and calamari) also very good. The experience was kind of sullied by a panhandler who interrupted our dinner and became aggressive and hostile when we politely turned down his ask for a meal. The waitstaff did not intervene and ask him to leave. Not the restaurant’s fault per se but unpleasant nonetheless.

My baked ziti was a 1 out of 10. Not very yummy. The Risotto dish 9 out of a 10. The pizza gets a 9. The spaghetti with meatballs gets a 1 from my 7 year old. Meatballs too dry. The Tiramisu gets a 1. It was too wet and not very tasty. The vanilla gelato gets a 7 from by 7 year old. We at in the outdoor dinning which was okay. The server was nice. Felt a little rushed. The appetizers came with the main course.

Delicious food in a cute and romantic setting. The outdoor seating is decorated so cute. You forget and do not notice that the seating is on the busy Walnut St.

Pietro's was surprisingly empty when we went making it quieter than usual - the food is food and there is a good selection of small plates. We did not try the pizza this time, but the cauliflower crust pizza was tempting.

Food was good, but service was terrible. Portions were large. Maybe they can't get well-trained staff in this period of recovery from COVID. My beverage was brought in a bottle, no glass. I had to request multiple times to finally get a glass. When 3 entrees were brought out, mine was forgotten- it took requests to have it served, much later. My request for dressing on the side was not followed, suggested by the server, was not followed- it came lightly dressed...with the WRONG DRESSING. Had to request the right dressing. Not sure I would come here again.

Food was amazing. Pizza is awesome and many wonderfully created shareable dishes. Calamari were the best I have outside of Italy.
Design of reataurant is great.
The only negative, which is a big one if you are having a business lunch or just trying to have a connersation, is the acoustics are terrible. The noise level makes having any kind of discussion virtually impossible. I was there at lunch when about only half the tables were occupied and my companions abandonded trying to talk about the business for which we were meeting.

The food is very good. The pizzas are excellent. I would highly recommend the breaded cauliflower or the roasted meat balls as an appetizer. The service was great, gave us more than enough time to order and eat our meal.

The food was good and the service was professional and attentive, but it was hard to enjoy because of how deafeningly loud the restaurant was. We had to shout to hear one another and ears were ringing when we left. Unfortunately I would not recommend or go back.

We just arrived in Philadelphia and looked up restaurants for lunch on open table. We chose Pietros because of nearby location to our hotel and that they had outdoor dining so we could bring our dog. The service and Ford were great.

Pietro's food is always good and plentiful. My dinner was quite salty but very tasty.

They weren't too busy so the noise level was acceptable, although it can be quite loud at times.

Pietro's is always reliable for a good meal.

Back inside of an old favorite for a late lunch with a friend I hadn't seen live in 17 months. Of course we had a lot to catch up on, and the Pietro's staff was wonderful -- put us away from everyone else and let us sit there for hours over a glass of wine and (delicious) salads. Thanks guys !!!
