This excellent restaurant serves a great pizza, though I'd hardly call it a pizzeria. Pietro's offers a number of fine Italian entrees and pastas that looked scrumptious. But as they proudly trumpeted their title of best pizza in Philadelphia we had to go for a pie. Indeed it was good stuff, with a smart crust topped with rich tomato sauce and fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese. The roasted garlic and mushrooms were a nice adornment, but this pizza would stand tall on its own merit. I'll have to check out other pizza joints in this large Italian American city to decide if realy is the best Philly has to offer, but regardless of what conclusions I come to I'll be returning to Pietro's.
