Italian
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

The food was amazing and the service was good as well. My only issue is because when our server noticed we were there for a birthday, I had made a reservation online and specifically noted that that was the celebration, he told us we could pick a dessert, making it sound like it would be on the house, but when we got the bill, the dessert was on there. I paid and left, not wanting to make it a big deal, but having been offered a dessert when we weren’t going to get one and having to pay for it was a little off putting. Other than that, I would go back and recommend this place to others

We had an early New Year’s Eve date - late lunch. It was pretty crowded, quite noisy, but service and food was delicious. We’ve been here quite often and are never disappointed.

Clean bathrooms. Good service. Tasty side salad option with my lunch special. Enormous hot pesto chicken sandwich on home made focaccia. All staff wearing masks properly 💯. One star removed for ambiance only because more Christmas decorations would've been nice. Good selection of beer, wine and spirits.

Christmas Eve family dinner. Excellent service by both the hostess, manager & server. Appetizers & entrees were great. Family style is a nice option. The menu is extensive & has lots of good options. Cocktails were also good. We will be back!

I love this place, we usually order and share pizza and salads. This time we ate the pasta and it just wasn’t that great. Too salty and overall disappointing - it was Christmas Eve so kinda chalked it up to that and the pandemic. I had spaghetti and meatballs and it just didn’t satisfy and I’m not picky. Everything else was exceptional especially our server - next time I’ll stick to the pizza.

A very long wait to check in- apparently short staff/callout with server. However, no engagement or apologies given while the line snaked through the entry and bar waiting to get a table (25min after our reservation btw). It happened after we waited and waited. Server was good enough but they were sold out of chicken & eggplant parm (@7:30pm) and we discovered it after we ordered and he came back to share. Then i decided to order a 4 cheese pizza and add pepperoni and they refused to make the accommodation. Would need to create my own pizza. At that point it would been over $40 for a 14 in pizza. Not happening. Overall food was good after it arrived. I ordered a size if meatball prior to the pizza serving and they came when there was one piece left. Just felt like I was just another number - take it or leave it mentality in an industry which needs us to keep them alive - and we did during Covid and will continue to do it. Unless you “don’t care” and they didn’t. So, we won’t be back.

Me and my boyfriend were pleasantly pleased by the food. We ordered wine, the Lambrusco since I hate dry wines, recommended by our waitress & it was really good we drank the whole bottle. I forgot her name but she was lovely. We ordered the Risotta balls to start. We decided to try something new, they were really good especially the sauce it came in you can tell it was fresh. I ordered the chicken parm and my boyfriend ordered pizza with chicken sausage & roasted peppers. My chicken parm was perfect, it came with a side of spaghetti and the noodles were soo thick and fresh. The chicken was nice and hot and it was fried perfectly. The pizza was really good as well, I can't give my honest reviews cause i ate it cold when we got home but my boyfriend loved it.

It was a good option but I was not impressed by the service ... and the pricing seemed a bit high.. however the food was wonderful. Mixed drinks and liquor was lacking -- an extra dirty martini served without olives in it seemed odd. Not checking to see if extra drinks or more were wanted.. but we were a group of 12 with only one to wait us so we may have been a bit overwhelming.

Overall everything was mediocre. Wasn’t bad, but wasn’t outstanding. Eggplant parmigiana was a good dish, pizza was very good with a nice airy dough. Cauliflower pizza was less than stellar and very mushy.

The food and drinks were great, it was just that it was so loud you could barely hear each other talk. Also, it was so busy that our server was running around everywhere and we barely even saw him.
