I travel to Philly for business every year during December. I just completed my third dinner stop at Pietro's (3 years running) I am always dining solo, so I sit at the bar to eat, but the bartender (Chris) always makes me feel welcomed. The food is really super. I think I have ordered the Chicken Parm every time I... More

I have been a fan of Pietro's for many years, especially when dining with children. However this visit was very disappointing and the place wasn't even busy. Poor service! We sat there waiting for our simple orders for an hour with three small children! Our waitress, sporting an unbuttoned shirt until it was pointed out to her, couldn't manage to... More

During a weekend trip to Philadelphia, my wife and I just wanted a quick dinner, and pizza seemed to be the choice. This being our first visit to Philadelphia we did not know where to find a good pizza place. We consulted the internet and found that Pietro's was close to our hotel. When we first walked in we were... More

Two of us visited Pietro's Coal Oven Pizzeria this past week while on a business trip in Philadelphia. We ordered a pizza and pasta to share along with some wine. We chose the Barese Pizza which had spicy sausage, hot pesto, tomato, and mozzarella and it was excellent. Our pasta choice was Gemelli with chicken, arugula in a white wine... More

Ten friends gathered here for a catch-up dinner. Not being a fan of pizza for dinner, lunch maybe, I was not looking foward to the meal. I was proven wrong. When two of us entered the restaurant the place was buzzin', and I mean loud! I thought uh-oh this is not going to be good. We met up with two... More

It almost doesn't matter about the food when the noise level is beyond deafening. When this place filled up, people were literally shouting above each other. I couldn't wait to get out. On the plus side, my salad was Ok and fresh, although the dressing was bland and tasteless. My husband enjoyed his pizza. The service was efficient.

It was my last dinner of my trip yo philly, we went there to have a pizza. The place was full so we stayed at the bar and ordered pizza. I had four-cheese pizza... It was good... they should spread more cheese on the edges... but it was good!
