Shared a salad and pizza for lunch. Both were delicious. Was not crowded that day. Waiter was very nice and attentive. Would love to come back and try their pastas.

II stopped by for a late lunch and had the spaghetti pomodoro. I was disappointed in the sauce. It was more like a regular tomato sauce in that it was think and heavy not light like I expected. Service was OK. A man at a table next to me had a pizza and it looked good. I will try that... More

Came here one night with 5 other colleagues for dinner. The place was packed on a Saturday night. We were seated at the back of the restaurant, just next to the kitchen. It was very, very cramped. There was a bachelorette party going on and it was SO loud, we could not have a conversation. Once that group left, it... More

Went there in late Sept 2014. Very good. Better than RALPH's which is a place famous for being famous. Pietro;s was better food. All FOUR of us agreed. Mixed crowd, family, young people, older people. Convivial. Lively, people talking, clinking glasses, laughter, so if you want quiet ....try another place. Its in the Rittenhouse square area...so real nice section of... More

We stopped in for a quick pizza and salad. Don't be fooled by the small salad...it easily serves two. The thin crust pizza was loaded with goodies and was delicious. The only complaint was that the noise was incredible. It was hard to carry a conversation and our ears hurt by the end of the meal. They should look into... More

Used to call have dinners delivered, this time were housebound and needed to go out. This was a very pleasant experience. Pasta fagoile was very good, eggplant parmigiana really good and gelato dessert great. Portion sizes were really right. Service was very good without being intrusive. We will certainly go back for more good food in a pleasant environment. We'll... More

I wouldn't say not to go here, but I wouldn't say that you were going to get an exquisite gourmet meal either. It was just your average italian place, the food was fine, tasty, but nothing spectacular. The problem though was that the service was way too quick. I didn't think that was possible until we ate at this restaurant.... More
