When we come back to our hometown Philly, we need to visit family and, even more importantly, South Philly for the food. Ristorante Pesto takes you back to the days of classic Italian meals from classy corner restaurants. In a true Italian family way, you come in to the warmest welcome, great smells comes from the kitchen, and a nice... More

Don't go to Italy. Go to philly. My husband and I came for his birthday. Everyone made it special. From the moment you arrive, you feel welcome and at home. The atmosphere is lovely. The waiters are knowledgeable and patient. My biggest problem was trying to decide from the vast array of tempting dishes. We had the eggplant stuffed w... More

Pesto's is absolutely the best; if you're ever in Philly you must try them. Not only is the food fantastic but the owners and staff is outstanding. Have been here before on special occasions (birthdays) and it has always been wonderful. This was no different except it was for a surprise birthday dinner for my fiancee with family coming from...

The staff is always... More

Very yummy home-style Italian food! Definitely try the balsamic carrots they bring out to start, surprisingly tasty! They also brought out a taste of their bruschetta which was delicious as well! The gnocchi were tasty, and the stuffed steak was delicious and A hearty portion!

We had a wonderful opportunity to celebrate a big (60th!) birthday at Ristorante Pesto in December. This was a celebration that was months in the making - and Ristorante Pesto was the perfect location to gather. The owner and her staff made us feel very welcome throughout the evening - and attentively took care of us. The food was incredible... More

Tonight was our first time and we were greeted by Concetta who was extremely welcoming. We were given dishes to try just because it we had never been. The service was great and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend the gnocchi pesto! I will definitely be returning here and I highly recommend it!

My father and I chose to have dinner at Restorante Pesto based on the excellent reviews. This restaurant did not disappoint. We traveled from the Pocono area to attend a Villanova Basketball game at the Wells Fargo Center. From the moment we entered we were treated like regulars. Aside from the wonderful service, the food was some of the most... More

We asked our daughter to pick a restaurant to celebrate her birthday where our food fussy family would all enjoy. She didn't want anything over the top or too fancy. I should mention we live in Chester County and don't get to Philly too often for meals. Plenty of local choices out here. She selected Ristorante Pesto in South Philly,... More
