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 outdoor dining area was adorable! The food was delicious and I loved the vin blossom drink. Our waitress was also amazing, so kudos to her. I love going to Pietro’s and this was another great experience.

I had pizza with vegan pepperoni and fresh basil, not bad at all. Service was good. This place is a no for me returning. It was nothing special at all. I tried it and I’m done.

The staff was amazing. The hiring manager should be extremely proud of the staff. The food was amazing; my husband had the special and was very pleased. The tiramisu was worth the trip a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed a great lunch this past Sunday, in the well-heated outdoor dining space, decorated like a breath of springtime. The service was great but the best part was the delicious and reasonably priced lunch we had. From appetizers to drinks, to entrees, our total tab came to just over $100 for three, (including 5 drinks.) Although the luncheon menu probably serves smaller portions than the regular menu, it was more than enough great tasting food to send us on our way with full bellies, and a determination to return soon. We would definitely recommend putting Pietro's on your list of to-do eateries if you haven't been yet. And if you already have, you know how good it is so go again and enjoy.

Upscale pizza. Service was prompt, respectable, and purposeful. Small plates had good variety and served hot. Entrees were ok, but I could imagine the pizza would have been a better choice.

Outdoor seating is nice. I liked the threaded flowers and vines. They were artificial but still looked nice. Hopefully they can put some live plants in there in the spring. I felt safe in the COVID free enclosure . The food was tasty. I got the eggplant parmigiana and my companion had the spaghetti and meatballs. We were both very satisfied and took leftovers home for my son Roy. The only recommendation I have is the cocktail was too sweet. It was more like dessert.

The outside area was very nice, the personal sized Propane Heater was a plus, the food was very good with the only issue we had was the pancetta we requested on our pizza was very soft, fatty, and not even that warm so we would have preferred it be pan fried first to get a little crispness. The season warm spiced wine drink they gave a free sample of was very nice and we each ordered one of those. The bruschetta was good although the peppers and olives were unexpected so that threw off my dining partner but it tasted fine.

I’ve been going to Pietro’s for years because they’re consistent! The first time I went to Pietro’s was for lunch during work hours. Their service was efficient and the food was delicious, so I decided to come back for dinner. Again, the food was delicious, fresh and comforting... and their cocktails are solid. I’d say their prices are also fair given the location, in center city where cost of everything is inflated.

Good food, good staff, clean facilities, good value, relaxed and fun environment. A little noisy but kind of expect that from this type of place. Nice artisanal pizzas along with other fare make this a simple go to place.

Stopped in this past Saturday (mid-day) with my hubby. Shared a soup and a margarita pizza. Both were very good. $5 mimosa’s too which was a great deal. Restaurant was very chilly though. They also had outdoor covered seating.

I had a wonderful, last minute reservation with my boyfriend here. The outdoor seating is really nicely decorated, and each table has its own heater it wasn’t to my taste but it was nice getting a sample before I ordered anything. The pizza was perfectly fine, not amazing but quite good. Overall we had a nice time.
