Wow! I can't say enough good things about this place. First off, Concetta makes you feel like family from the moment you walk into the door. The wait staff is super nice and the service was really quick. Everything we got was amazing. You seriously can't go wrong with the food here. I highly recommend this place and can't wait... More

We were driving from Atlantic City to New York and decided to stop in Philadelphia for dinner to break up the journey. As none of the party were familiar with the area we decided to use Trip Advisor for guidance and we were not disappointed! Upon arrival we were very warmly greeted and kindly given a table even tho we... More

From the very beginning of our meal, we were welcomed into Pesto. Concetta personally came by our table to greet us, bring some house specialties that were gratis, and check to see how our meal was going. The balsamic roasted carrots were unique and delicious, and the plate with roasted peppers, fresh mozzarella balls drizzled in balsamic vinegar, and the... More

Our trip to Philly would not have been complete without a jaunt down to south Philly. There we discovered (thanks to Trip Advisor) an authentic Italian family restaurant: Concetta Varallo & her husband Giovanni have continued an age old Italian tradition of family owned & operated restaurant. Traditional dishes were complemented by interesting local fare. Our meals were well served... More

Awesome food and very helpful, courteous staff. Eggplant rolatini fabulous. All homemade pasta. Even though they have a bar they do allow you to bring your own wine which is a big plus.

We recently moved into the area and were searching for a great restaurant close to the sports complex. My wife checked on Trip Advisor (which we respect) for reviews and landed on this Ristorante. From the moment you walk in you feel a part of the "old school" south philly eateries. The hostess is awesome. The waitress had the specials... More

If you are in Philly you MUST go to Ristorante Pesto! Coming from rich Italian ancestry I know authentic Italian cuisine. Ristorante Pesto knocks it out of the park with everything from the eggplant rolintini, the marinated carrots in balsamic reduction, the crusty bread all the way to the Gnocchi. I had it with the pesto sauce and my daughter... More
