We love this place so much. We are both Italian and we know good food and this is where it’s at. We ordered 3 entrees because we wanted to taste everything and it was all amazing. We had the portobello mushroom appetizer and that was...delicious and the crème brûlée and tiramisu both fantastic! The owner goes out of her way to make sure everyone in her restaurant is happy. Her daughter was our waitress and she was great! Everything she recommended was enjoyed, we can’t wait to go back. Thank you so much for your hospitality.More

We were celebrating our daughter's graduation from Temple. The staff, from the wonderful owner, Connie, to our waiter and waitress, went above and beyond to make sure our celebration was a memorable one. My husband had the clams for the appetizer in which the broth...was just bursting with flavor. I had the lamb chops for dinner which were so juicy and tender. Everyone expressed how their meals were just simply deliciouss. The martinis were great. Our daughter said that her dinner at Pesto's just topped off her very special day.More

Everyone was super friendly and they were very prompt with attention. We had the eggplant appetizer and it was excellent. My wife had chicken piccata and that was very good except no capers. I had veal parm and it was one of the best veal...parm I have had. Go here if you canMore

Our Uber driver driver told us this was the best Italian restaurant isn’t the Philadelphia area and it did not disappoint! They start you off with vegetables and bread. The vegetables were so flavorful with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and garlic. Truly a delight. The...vegetable of the evening was carrots. We had portobello stuffed mushrooms. They were so tasty with the sauce that you couldn’t help yourself to drench your bread in the cheese sauce. We also had brochetta which was also tasty. The main course was chicken Marsala. There were plenty of mushrooms and the flavor of the Marsala wine came through. All in all a wonderful evening. The staff was great - constantly checking on how we were doing. The owner came by to check as well. An awesome meal!More

Love the rosé sauce so much. And the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. We always BYOB a few bottles of wine and finish off with dessert cocktails from the bar. Always bringing our out of town guests here!!
