Pizza is a family affair for me. My Uncle Angelo arrived in America in the 1930s with a passion for pizza. He worked hard and eventually bought his own pizzeria in Brooklyn. It was there that Uncle Angelo invented a recipe for coal oven pizza. That recipe has been perfected over 60 years and passed down through the generations.

My brothers and cousins in New York know the recipe. Diners at Patsys, Nick and Angelo have enjoyed their pizzas, pastas and salads for years. Here in Philadelphia and New Jersey, you can feast on my Uncle Angelo secret recipe dishes at our three Pietro's locations: 1714 Walnut Street, 121 South Street in Philadelphia, and 236 North Radnor Chester Road in Radnor, Pa.

Private room and outdoor deck available for up to 100 guests.

I have always loved the food at Pietros. Their pizzas are very good. I had a pasta dish with chicken, arugula and grape tomatoes that was absolutely delicious.

Service was horrible!!! Ordered a salad for an appetizer and 2 entrees. Waited 30 minutes for the salad to arrive to have our entrees arrive immediately after salad. Our entrees were placed on the bar until we finished the salad. The entrees were cold and we were disappointed so greatly that we asked for the entrees to be boxed. We could not find our waitress to get a glass of water. She placed both dinners sideways in the bag so when we got home the juices from the entrees were in the bottom of the bag. Our kitchen was a mess! We were so disappointed that we threw both dinners out in the trash!! It was a waste of money! Normally have a decent time there but the waitress definitely would not make us return.

Great food. Limited menu, it seems due to COVID-19, which is understandable. Definitely wanted a scampi option, usually standard fare, but it was not an option.
What was available was tasty though!

My party was informed that the kitchen closed at 8pm and we could stay after to finish our food. We arrived ten minutes early for our 7pm reservation and we're constantly rushed to finish prior to close. The waitresses wore a mask and face shield and wet every difficult to hear. The food was good but the wine was not.

Food was great I had a chicken and shrimp dish with pasta that was in a tomato cream sauce. It came out piping hot. My girlfriend was a chicken dish with gemelli pasta also steaming hot. We sat in the bar at a high top but when we go back we want to check out the cool looking main dinning room, From where we were sitting it looked like they created an outdoor dining area inside. Staff was super attentive from the Server/Bartender, Bus Boys and someone who appeared to be the manager all engaged with us asking if we needed anything. I will be going back next time I visit the area.

Calamari and meatballs off the appetizer menu were delicious.
Pizza kids did not enjoy, bc it had more sauce on it then cheese, 2 slices were just all sauce so I couldn’t blame them. Got a pasta dish but don’t remember the name it was delicious our 2 boys enjoyed it more then the pizza! Wish I had taken pics. But overall I would recommend:-)

We were greeted and seated promptly by Angelo and I’m sorry I don’t remember our server’s name, but she was pleasant as well. The food was delicious (get the short rib pizza!), the restaurant was clean, just an overall wonderful experience. We’ll definitely be back!

Went for outside dining with friends. Glad to be back eating there instead of take out. Had our usual Siciliana salad and veggie pizza. Was great as always. I’ve tried a lot of pizza and Pietro’s is my favorite. Not greasy and nice crust.

Our friends loved it!

I got here quite often. this time I took two other of my friends. One ordered eggplant and it was not good. They gave us a credit on the bill. I was very happy with that. This place is always a great place to go. Something to eat for everyone.
