Go with the Parm

Fabulous Chicken Parm. The portions were huge and I barely made a dent. We also had the Spinach Salad with golden raisins, which was great. Again, a huge portion. Great service and ambiance. It was a convenient walk from the hotel, which was perfect.

I've been three times to Pietro's. Wanted to share it with friends. It has really good Italian food especially the pizza. Salads are excellent as well. Portions are big, a main course and a salad were too much for a guy to handle. I would order either or, then will leave full.

Took my teenage children for an early dinner. We ordered the Caesar salad (individual), Spaghetti and meatballs and chicken parm. We shared the 3 dishes and there was PLENTY of food.

Went to Pietro's on the suggestion of our hotel's concierge. Great Italian food in a casual atmosphere. We had the calamari, sausage pizza, chicken limone, and spaghetii and meatballs. Everything was great, including the prices.

Amazing staff and service. Felt very welcomed as a large group (which had not been the case at other nearby restaurants- even with a reservation). Pizza is some of the best I've ever had, thin crust, chewy and crisp. Fresh basil and mozzarella. HEAVEN! The vodka sauce on the pasta entra WAS THE BEST I have ever had. Even the... More

With so many pizza joints in Philly, choosing the best one could prove daunting. You will never go wrong, however, with Pietro's. A great staff and bar, too, as well as the freshest, most tasty salads to start things off.

This is a frequent stop for us when in the city. You can be seated easily, however for dinner, I'd recommend a reservation. You can sit outside (with your pet!!) and watch the shoppers and characters on Walnut Street. My favorite is the chicken caesar salad, but ask for the chicken to be sautéed, rather than grilled. The arugula salad... More

Had a very nice coal oven pizza with fresh ingredients. Crust could use a little more char, but very good and reasonable price. Service was also very friendly.

Coal Fired Pizza at its finest. Was in town for a week and ate here twice both times getting the pizza. So delicious. I can't wait to try the chicken Parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs next time.
