Generous, Accommodating, Delicious!

The food is outstanding, the service is attentive and warm. Homemade everything and a long list of tempting nightly specials. Classic American Italian, very well executed.

Date of visit: 8/21/15 - our first visit to this treasure. 5:45 reservation. Warm welcome. Amazing food and plenty of it. Servers didn't miss a beat. Super friendly. Leave room for a bite of dessert, if you can. They'll pack up leftovers. Concetta, we'll be back. Enjoy your vacation. You deserve it. Note on parking: pay attention to signs. Street... More

Let me start by saying I have italian parents, one who is a chef and am very rarely impressed by italian food out of the house. We tried this place out due to reviews and when we approached ina cab on our first night out in Philly we automatically thought this must be a ditch up as we headed into... More

From the first steps into the entrance, we were warmly welcomed by the sweet owner who excitedly showed us to our table. We were complemented with an appetizer that was outrageously delicious. The entire evening was reflective of the owners' pride in their food and ingredients. There is a ton of love at Pesto. The patrons and staff all seemed... More

Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The owner, Concetta, was very accommodating and all smiles from the second we walked through the door. Our appetizers and meals were all delicious. We will be coming back again next time in Philly.

From the minute we were greeted at the door by Connie the owner our dining experience was wonderful. The whole staff was attentive and friendly. They even sent over one of the special appetizers for us to try along with what we ordered. Definitely worth a visit for a great Italian dinner.

Wow! Spur of the moment trip to Philly with the kids. Looked on Trip Advisor for some restaurants and found Pesto. Menu and pictures looked great and I read that it was casual, so I called at 7:30 for an 8:00 reservation. I could tell it was busy when they called and they were able to squeeze us in, despite...

Went here with 5 people in town on business after reading reviews. Went in with very high expectations, the reality was so much better. Owner came over right away and thanked us for coming in and gave us some info on the restaurant. All the food was amazing and prices we're all very reasonable. I would highly recommend checking it...

Truly enjoyable from the warm welcome to the delicious and amazing food. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The service was excellent. We are looking forward to our next visit. Not only is this restaurant terrific for a casual dinner but would be wonderful to celebrate family events.
