Very Good

Took my parents here for their birthday's and I must say the food is excellent. Their staff is friendly and the food was really good. A bit pricey, bu well worth it especially if you go to some of the places nearby and compare.

Why Couldn't My Mother Cook Like This?!?

OMG!!! The flavors reminded me of a little place back in Italy... the only difference was I didn't have to spend thousands to go to that little place. It was cozy, and the wait staff were made us feel comfortable and like recently reunited family. I ordered Saltimbocca alla Romana -- all I can say is MMMMMmmmm soooo wonderful! My date ordered and inhailed Pollo ai Carciofi. I highly recommend going to Pesto.

FANTASTIC!!!!!

Phenomenal food. It matches the best Italian restaurant in Italy....nothing more to say. This is the best Italian restaurant I've been to in North America.

Great food and Great for Groups!!!

I reserved their private room for my 21st birthday. It was so great to have the room all to ourselves and know no one else was waiting for our tables and to have the privacy. In addition, we had our own bathroom and place to put our coats. I brought a few bottles of wine and there was no corking/re-corking fee. The food was amazing!! Everyone in my group of 17 people loved their dishes. Our waiters even catered to th... view more

The only real Italian Restaurant in Philly (...so far)

Philly has more FAKE Italian restaurants than any other major city in States. Sorry folks, but Italian cuisine is more than a last name ending in a vowel or sprinkling balsamic vinaigrette on a plate ....Then we accidentally come across Pesto and found the real flavours of the Italian cuisine. Wonder why, the chef (and owner) came out of the kitchen to meet us.... we discovered he taught in a culinary school for 12 y... view more

A decent meal

We went to Pesto before a show last Friday. The service was very good and attentive and the eggplant appetizer we ordered was very good. Entrees were far from amazing though. I ordered the special ""veal chop with porcini mushroom sauce"". The chop had very little meat on it and while it looked big the volume was spinach and not actual meat. The porcini's were actually canned mushrooms which was very disappoint... view more

Excellent Service

I enjoyed this restaurant. I had a large party of 10 and we had the back room which was private and that was great. The downside was that they charge $5 for sharing entrees. Usually I like to share a bunch of appetizers and entrees when I'm with a big group, but because of the sharing fee, we didn't get to try that much appetizers. I loved the calamari there though. Entrees were smaller than I expected but it wa... view more

Great Experience

I stopped in to grab a bite with my wife and another couple before an event downtown. The atmosphere was the first thing that let me know this would be a good experience. It was elegent, not too over done, and made you feel comfortable. The service was perfect - the waiter didn't spend time at the table unless there was a need. Finally, the food was excellent. I had a veal dish that makes my mouth water just thi... view more

Best on South Broad Street

My favorite restaurant! Very attentive and accomadating wait staff. Beautiful atmosphere. Food is fresh and brought to table hot. Every dish was superb. This time of the year presented several pumpkin dishes which were excellent, especially, the pumpkin gnocchi and pumpkin gelato for dessert. I can't say enough. I want to go back every day and try everything.
