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

    I ordered the Margharita pizza...the crust was crisp, the sauce delicious. My husband had the chicken parmesan sandwich, he loved it and actually had it for a second meal it was so large. My son had the spaghetti and finished it all. Very good!

    Looking for more traditional Italian, we choose the Spaghetti and meatballs. Also added the Mediterranean salad to balance our guilty pleasures which included the very delicious Cherry cheesecake. Every dish was absolutely delicious!!!

    The service was fair and not necessarily the servers fault. Seems they may have been understaffed which caused inattentive service.

    Came here for my birthday with a party of 7! Fantastic service, and food as usual (2nd time here ) would certainly go back. My only problem was that the host did not inform me that the kitchen closed 15 minutes after our scheduled reservation, which felt a little restrictive.

    Outdoor seating was terrible. There was standing water on the street, which led to a large number of mosquitos everywhere. The servers were all very friendly and professional. They moved us inside right away. The food was average. A highlight was the warm rolls served with hummous and olive oil. We had bruschetta which had thick olive slices underneath the tomatoes. That did not taste good at all. The pasta alla vodka was good.

    Food was tasty but portion size has significantly decreased. The $30 salad (with chicken) was much smaller than in the past and the shrimp were half the size they used to be. I guess it’s a sign of the times but it’s disappointing to pay the same amount of money and more, for smaller portions.

    We were a group of 7 there to celebrate my husband’s birthday. After reading reviews we decided to try. Love that they have round tables for large groups. Our server was nice and attentive. The bread put on the table was fresh and warm, but the olive oil/garlic dip was so thick. It also didn’t seem to have fresh garlic, but powdered garlic. The food was good, but not great. Too many items on the menu are fried. Even my eggplant parm which tasted good, was made with so heavily fried slices of eggplant that I only was able to eat about 1/3 of the dish(same for the chicken parm—-heavy thick fried breading)The shareable Caesar salad should have been very cold and wasn’t, like it was sitting out of fridge. The dressing was so full of “clumpy” Parmesan cheese. The coal fired pizza was a hit. My family loved the margherita pie. The mozzarella was delicious. Sadly we never tried the dessert because we waited about 1/2 hour and still did not have it served, so we canceled. Probably would only go again for the pizza.

    Pietros has been our favorite restaurant for several years. Recently we have noticed a deterioration in the quality and the portions of the entrees- particularly the spaghetti and meatballs. The portion of pasta has definitely shrunk as has the size of the meatballs. And the meatballs do not taste as good as before- last night they were over salted. We are very disappointed and plan to search for a new favorite restaurant- I’m sure it won’t be hard to find one in this neighborhood.

    Radnor location is much better and much, much cleaner. Bathrooms are absolutely disgusting and they clearly haven’t upgraded that in over 20 years. There was no soap in the dispenser. In todays world that’s a nasty signal isn’t it? Pizza was average and always a philly flaw putting too much cheese on the pizza and drowning it. Salad was a Caesar and was typical and nothing special. The size was for 2 but looked like it was for 1. The Sangiovese wine was excellent!

    My husband, son and I visit twice a month every time we visit Philadelphia. We’re from NYC where there is great dining but, the food and service of Pietro’s is always impeccable and never less. David (Manager) and staff are always accommodating and pleasant to speak with. We always come down for a three day weekend and make sure to book back to back reservations at Pietro’s. Thank you Pietro’s for your great food and hospitality, see you soon!! Ps. Recommendations to everyone, EVERYTHING IS FANTASTIC 😉

    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.

    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.
