Very good meal served with a smile. As soon as you walk in you are being greeted by a hostess with a great personality. The service was very good as was the food.

Although the flower show was our reason for visiting Philadelphia, it was the great reviews that encouraged us to head down South Broad St. to Pesto. It was well worth finding it. The menu is generous but wait to hear the specials before making a selection. There is quite a choice of appetizers and entrees and each one sounds delectable.... More

My wife and I found this place based on great reviews and we were not disappointed. Great experience from the very friendly woman taking our reservation over the. Phone all the way through dessert.

Went to this restaurant because of the reviews and was not disappointed. It was very busy and I think we were lucky to get a reservation since we called at the last minute. Talked to the hostess a little bit before we were seated and told her we were from out or town, etc. Not long after we were seated... More

A very warm welcome and then, after being seated in 1 of 2 rooms the food kept coming and coming. appetizers (shrimp and an eggplant special) were served along... More

You can tell this is a family who loves food and preparing delicious food for others. Friendly service from start to finish and very attentive. We tried the eggplant rollatini (delish!), bruschetta (great!) and steamed clams (perfect!) for appetizers. My friend LOVED her gnocchi and I had the zuppa di pesce, which was ridiculous. The portion was huge and seafood... More

Special place. Great food. Concetta is the best. We've had several family and couple gatherings here and it never disappoints.

Wow... This is a special place in the heart of South Philly. Next time in town for business or entertainment. Family owned with non-stop smiles and service. And the food was outstanding!
