Good pizza, good service, quite expensive. We made the mistake of having bread before hand which made eating the pizza a struggle!

I dined here for dinner with my nephew on a weeknight. The restaurant is very spacious. The food is very high quality and delicious, with generous portions. Service is quick and efficient. Will definitely go back for more!

Went to this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and held up its reputation. Had a few veg friendly dishes. The family size portions are enough for a family of 4 and granny. Service was great. Parking could be tough but we got lucky on the street.

We have just returned from five nights in Philadelphia and stayed just a couple of minutes walk from this lovely restaurant. We ate here on four of the five nights and had lunch on our day of departure. The restaurant has a great lively atmosphere and the food was very good! We found it to be quite inexpensive with very...

We were looking for a less formal environment and thought Pietro looked welcoming. We started with Brochette which was excellent. My husband had Veal Marsala and I had Eggplant Parmigiana also excellent. The wine by the glass was wonderful from Piedmontese . Since it was a birthday we got Italian cheese cake and the waiter brought it with a candle.... More

I Had a business dinner here and the waiter was very accommodating. I wanted something from the lunch menu and he made it happen for dinner!!! Mushroom risotto with chicken is the best and the chocolate mousse is excellent as well. Great place for great food and conversation.

Great location, on a street with all the shops. Everything was delicious! The salads were huge... We ordered two as appetizers and the six of us didn't finish them. The chicken Marsala included four breast and tons of risotto... No one finished their pizza, nor the chicken parm plate. Wow! Service was fantastic and we were very comfortably seated at... More

We were a party of four and were seated at a tiny table despite the place being 90% empty. Our waiter rushed us through the meal and the bus staff removed half eaten starter plates to make room for mains. Despite our protests, which fell on preoccupied ears, the food was carried off and replaced with clunky dishes (essentially thrown... More

I had a good meal at Pietro's, the atmosphere was upbeat and busy. This is not a quiet or a romantic restaurant. There is dining on the sidewalk if one wants to partake. BUT the food is very salty. The dinners are very heavy, with big portions of heavy pasta. if one wants pasta the way it was served in... More
