If you like a proper family-style Italian, instead of a chain, this is your place in Philly. We had a booking and were seating promptly but other people were being turned away in the meantime.

We had the most amazing pizzas for a long long time. The crust was so fluffy, I thought we were back in Italy again. I was only tasting some of the kids’ pizza’s but couldn’t help myself

Our mains of chicken parmigiana and chicken with mushroom risotto were superb, and the wine list was very good with a number of Italian and American varieties.

Without doubt, this was the nicest Italian restaurant we have dined in for many years, outside of the native Italians of the homeland of course

Great work guys

Pietro’s is centrally located near shops and Rittenhouse Square. The pizzas (even though little pricey) have great flavor. We had one with smoked mozzarella, prosciutto and arugula, really yummy. Service is fast and efficient. Great place if you are craving Italian.

We walked to this restaurant from the hotel, in a safe area, with a large expansive dining room great for large families... they serve warm bread that is just delicious, plus great easy dishes they made the kids happy. The salads are huge, even for the small, and definitely perfect for 2 to 3 people to enjoy with the meal. Pizzas are also huge and quite tasty. Friendly helpful service, just an all-around winner. We went twice. We highly recommend!

It's fun to try out your "old stand by" pizza toppings at different locations while on vacation. Pietro's was delicious! We picked the pizza up and took it to watch the fireworks at Penn's landing - perfect night.

Well worth the walk to get to this place. Pizza was wonderful, drinks, too. Coal oven baked pizza. Go early!
