Trying to decide where and what to eat on Friday? For those abiding by the no meat on Friday rule, this Friday can be a great opportunity to enjoy a great meat-free meal and wine after a long week at work. Italian can be a great way to go. Here are some suggestions:
Pietro’s Coal Oven Pizzeria
Pietro’s provides excellent coal-baked pizza. As a family-oriented pizzeria, the restaurant serves a variety of pizzas, homemade soups, fresh salads as well as pasta dishes. The pizza, a traditional thin-crust style, provides a variety of topping options. Everything from anchovies to zucchini can be ordered.
Pietro’s also has a very well stocked bar that includes an excellent Tuscan Sangiovese. The pizzeria is open for lunch and dinner daily.
D’Angelo’s Ristorante Italiano
D’Angelo’s provides a romantic dining atmosphere with nightly dancing in the lounge Mondays through Saturdays until 2 a.m. Serving classic Italian dishes, D’Angelo’s house specialty provides a blend of prosciutto, peas and mushrooms in a cream sauce over homemade al dente fettuccini.
The restaurant has an extensive wine list, which includes several varieties of chianti classico from Tuscany. This location is a quick one-block walk east of Rittenhouse Square on 20th Street.
