Nice stop between the art museum and East state penetentiary 11/24

We had spent several hours at the Philadelphia Art Museum and were walking to the Eastern State Penetentiary and wandered past this little pizza place. They were very friendly and not too busy, being a little late for normal lunch time and Thanksgiving week. The place only has about 8 or 10... read more

The ingredients of the pizza tasted and looked very fresh, which I truly liked but for me personally, as great as it looked, it seemed to be missing some flavor to take it over the top. Maybe it was just my topping choices. Either way, kudos for using fresh ingredients.

A nice neighborhood place, right off of Logan Square, is worth the walk. It is small, maybe 75 people can be seated, but the menu is expansive and covers pretty much anything you might want to eat in Philadelphia or anywhere else. It offers pizza, Stromboli, burgers, the ubiquitous Cheese Steak and everything in-between. The pizza was thin crust with... More

We dropped in for a quick lunchtime snack and shared a 10" pizza - combining two flavors. The pizza base was perfectly thin and the dough particularly well made with a great flavor - toppings good too. Surroundings are a bit jaded, but nothing to complain about. Altogether a good all round experience, I would definitely recommend, especially if your... More

The best places to eat are those you find by accident. Thankfully, we accidently found Pete's. I had the caprese hoggie -- fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil on a fresh hoggie roll. The bread was very good. My husband had the daily special -- chicken alphabet soup, chicken philly sandwich, fries and a drink for the low, low price of... More

A little too "greasy spoon" for my liking, but if you're looking for large portions, cheap eats, and a casual atmosphere, perhaps this is the place for you. I, however, was somewhat disappointed with the quality of the food.

We ate here the last night of our stay. The food here was very good and large portions and very inexpensive! We would eat here again.

Good place and prices. Ate here with friends / colleagues on a business trip. I knew we made a good decision when we walked in to see some Philly police officers having dinner. This place has a pretty big selection of food and beers (craft beers, locals, domestic). The pizza was good and the strombolli was excellent. Big portions so... More

After coming to Philly one week a month for the past two years, I've FINALLY found a pizza place worth comming back to again and again. I've found that inexpensive pizza hasnt been good, and good pizza isnt cost sensitive...until now. Pete's was fantastic! I recommend the Meat Lovers (steak, sausage, pepperoni and ham), was ~$10 for a small (10")... More

Walked over here while visiting the Franklin Institute instead of eating at their food court. I had the cheesesteak and the kids had the pizza - great ambiance, food was perfect and service was very friendly. Highly recommend!
