Simply the best stromboli you will ever eat. We get the chicken with onions & mushrooms--and substitute broccoli for green peppers. Fantastic comfort food!!

Cute little pizza joint with yummy pizza (crisp crust, nice sauce) & great service. However, if you're not used to buffalo spice, stay away from the buffalo chicken fries! Two of us couldn't finish more than 1/2 the order because they were so spicy. But, they have a few different kinds of fries on the menu which also look delicious.... More

Stopped here after visiting ESP and before heading home. Most of us got the cheesesteak with fries and slaw. One got a small meat lover's pizza. All was delicious. Pizza was loaded with toppings. It was so much food that we took leftovers home and had them for dinner. Cheesesteak was very well seasoned and had a lot of meat-they... More

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 tables, and several people came for take out... 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.
