You can tell the popular places to eat in Philly, they're hard to get a table at. This place was recommended and was no exception. Only an average eating experience for our party, I've probably had better pizza's delivered to me to be honest, hated the cheese base they use on the pizza. Very helpful, friendly staff at least made... More

Great thin crust build-it-yourself pizza. Added roasted eggplant and sausage to their basic pizza. Cooked just right, excellent service, friendly staff. Recommended on a list of local restaurants we got from the staff at the Mutter Medical Museum we visited. Great recommendation. A definite repeat visit place.

Extensive Italian menu. I enjoy the lasagna and my partner enjoyed chicken lemon. The chicken was severed with a generous portion of linguine. The meal comes with large dinner rolls. Many selections offer small (normal portions) or large size. The large portions are aimed at a family style dinning. A beautiful bar with a full wine & spirits selection. We... More

We ordered two different pizzas - both were wonderful. The toppings were generous and very fresh - the crust was perfect. We ordered a family size salad (mozzarella) - it was huge and very tasty. The service was great. It was a little pricey - but worth it. The building is brick and you feel like you are in an... More

Bustling atmosphere.Very busy yet was greeted by server right away, food came out hot and good. Spaghetti done just right, not soggy like many restaurants. It was a welcome kind of noisy, chatter-filled room. Upbeat.

We were looking to try a new place and found Pietros! What a find!!! Dinner was very good, service and atmosphere were awesome. We had a small round table which was perfect for conversation. Everyone loved their meals. Calamari, risotto balls, stuffed meatballs, ravioli, chicken dishes, all were absolutely delicious. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend this...

Make sure you get a pizza at this very cozy Italian restaurant! Had the Pietro's and it was really good. Staff is super nice too. You may want to get a Golden Monkey beer, delicious local beer! Enjoy!
