It had everything we were looking for, great reviews, quaint atmosphere, real homemade Italian food and reasonable prices. So we went and were impressed.

I've been going to Pesto and other restaurants Conchetta has owned for over 20 years. The food is consistently excellent and the experience is like coming home for the holidays. The staff always is friendly, courteous and looking to please and she leads by example. The portions are large but no quality is spared. Prices are reasonable, especially for the... More

Welcomed by the staff as soon as we arrived. They were very knowledgeable and helpful. They have a nice full menu, but also said they would make pretty much anything you wanted. The food was excellent, eggplant rollatini to start, black ink pasta with shrimp, mussels, clams, and fish. All the food was excellent. Portions are good sized and the... More

Don’t miss this gem of a restaurant in Philadelphia. The owners, chefs and servers could not possibly be more warm and welcoming, and the food is uniformly superb. The ambience is casual -- you can wear anything. We had caprese salad, bruschetta and eggplant rollatini for appetizers. They were all delicious, but the eggplant rollatini was drop-dead spectacular. We ordered... More

My girlfriend took me here for my birthday dinner because I really wanted good italian food- after some meticulous reading of trip advising/yelp reviews- she found Ristorante Pesto. Walking in, we were welcomed by the staff- the ambiance was great! We went on a Saturday night and made reservations in advance, the place was full, but there is plenty of... More

My fiance and I went to Pesto on our second date and came back again shortly after our engagement, two years later. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing! We ordered the pesto gnocci and veal parmesan and both were to die for. It's also a perk that it's a byob! We will definitely be back to the... More

Found this little gem of a place tonight and will be returning! The pear salad was very tasty and the crab cakes were some of the best I ever had! The staff made me feel right at home and were very charming. I look forward to bringing my family back next time!

This restaurant was fantastic!! Owner Concetta wanted to make sure everything was top notch for our special occasion. We ordered the gnocchi, veal Parmesan, and chicken florentine and a few bites of appetizers too. If we are back in Philly we will definitely return. Service all around was great!! Try and see for yourself.

This was by far the best Italian food we have ever had! The pasta melted in our mouths! The appetizers were delicious as well! We got the calamari and numerous other free appetizers were brought out for us to try, compliments of the owners. The staff made us feel right at home! They were friendly and vivacious while constantly checking... More
