Born & raised in Philadelphia, I now call South Florida home. When my father heard I was coming North to visit, he offered to take me out to eat. "PESTO!" I shouted, nearly deafening him. The meal was divine! Bruschetta as a starter simply goaded my palate to more. Caprese salad was my next choice. The mozzarella and tomatoes were so fresh - with just the right amount of basil & EVOO - it brought tears to my eyes! You can't get food this good down in Miami, I don't care how many stars the restaurant has! Saltimbocca alla Romana was the main course and, let me tell you, that veal was so tender it literally melted on my tongue! And, for dessert, Mom's Cheesecake. A little slice of heaven! John, Concetta, & Claudio have created loyal customers out of my entire family -- first at Io E Tu and now at Ristorante Pesto. Hey, guys? It was worth the 1300 mile trip! THANK YOU!

The food was good, but it was a Saturday evening, along with a birthday party, so the service was slow. If your looking for a South Philly atmosphere it's here. We all felt for a byob it was a little expensive. I would return and try it again, if my pocketbook allows. To be absolutely honest the owners realized how slow it was and sent some mussels to the table. They were good.

This is Philly's best italian restaurant, hands down for food, service and value! I have been coming here for years and tried others and still nothing compares. By now I must have sent over 50 people( people even having their own private parties here) , and everyone thinks this place is outstanding! The Eggplant Rollatini is the best and all specials are incredible.

Best bet is the grilled lamb chops. Most of the other entrees are coated with cheese to mask sauces that look like they come out of a pouch. Large portions for those who have that as their main concern.
