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!

Bit of a last minute meal option and was one of the highlights of our trip to Philadelphia. A very Italian feel restaurant with the food to back it up. Started with the calamari and a caprese salad (with fresh basil!) and they were both excellent. We were told the strombolis were "about medium size" so my dad and I... More

The food is good and the prices are reasonable. They have multiple locations in Philadelphia that are great areas of the city to visit.

We arrived to the restaurant around rush hour so we had to wait about 10 minutes before getting a table, which was quick considering the restaurant was packed. The waiter was extremely nice and attentive. We ordered the sausage pizza, which was delicious, and more than enough for two people. I will try and visit again next time I am... More
