We went here last night for my sisters birthday dinner- the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The owner came right up to us at the end of the night and asked how everything was. For whatever it´s worth, it´s always nice to see that the owner is very hands on at a restaurant and interacts with customers. I will definitely be back.FYI- it´s a BYOB but they also sell bottles of wine and some beer.

First thing´s first: This place is BYO wine only. I ate at Pesto earlier this week and I am still eating leftovers! As soon as you walk in you are treated like family. The owner, the chef, and the staff are all so welcoming and willing to answer any and all of your questions. You must and I say MUST get the portobello mushroom appetizer which is made and served in their homemade blush sauce. I have no idea what is in that sauce, but it was the best sauce EVER. Complimentary bread and glazed carrots are served with every table. Our table also ordered the eggplant rolls as an appetizer which are thinly sliced eggplant, fried, filled with ricotta and spinach, and then rolled and backed in a sauce. Couldn´t finish it all so I packed part of it for home and it was just as good the next day. Do not make the mistake of eating all of the bread, because you´ll get full. =When I tell you they serve one pound of pasta as an entreé I´m not lying! There was so much pasta in my dinner entreé dish it looked like I didn´t even make a dent in it. I had ordered the linguine with lobster and shrimp. Delicious. For dessert I had to get the cheesecake momma´s recipe. Light and airy I ate about 80 of it even though I was full lol. The owner comes around a few times throughout the night to check on all the guests. I love that about this place. It´s truly a family run establishment and they care about their customers. I´ll be back!

What an awesome quintessential South Philly Italian spot! I came here with two friends on a Friday night.  We didnt have reservations and the place was packed, but the hostess was able to squeeze us in. We only waited 10 minutes. The restaurant has a full bar but allows you to bring your own wine, and no corkage fee! We brought two bottles of wine. Once seated, we were quickly greeted by our awesome waitress, who recited the many evening specials from memory. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the menu. For appetizers, we ordered the braesol, the burrata, and fried calamari. Everything was very good, and the calamari was amazing. It was fresh and fried to perfection. The server brought complimentary marinated carrots and roasted red pepper salad with mozzarella balls. We were really grateful for those extra sides. They were very delicious. For dinner I got the chicken parmesan with a side of spaghetti. It comes with potatoes and the pasta side was extra, but so worth it. My one buddy got the steak stuffed with crab meat in a wine cream sauce and my other buddy got the baby lamb chop special. All of our meals were phenomenal. I was extremely taken aback by the awesome flavors. I really loved the marinara sauce. The portions were really big and the prices were really affordable, especially given the portion sizes. I cant wait to come back.

After all the hype, we decided to try this place for a birthday dinner. It didn´t live up to the hype for 3 of our 4 person group. The Pros:We got the carrots appetizer, bruschetta, eggplant roll appetizer and mussels appetizers. The appetizers were pretty good, especially the eggplant. That alone took the cake for the evening. Very delicious. The service was excellent too. If I could rate the service, I´d give it five yelps.The Cons: The bruschetta app had too much like raw onion and not enough tomatoes. It was an uneven ratio and wasn´t balanced. For dinner two of us had the Pollo Ai Carciofi, chicken parm, and pesto gnocchi. The chicken parm was average. The Pollo Ai Carciofi was a chicken breast sliced in half in a pool of broth. It left a lot to be desired and both people agreed it lacked flavor. The pesto gnocchi was terrible. Pesto as a sauce here was just bad. It was too much almost flavorless sauce. If it was the rose sauce on it that was on the eggplant rolls, it probably would´ve been good. We won´t be returning. Food just wasn´t anything to get excited about.

Pesto is a super delicious, cozy South Philly Italian BYO located right on Broad Street, so parking is easier here than most local spots! Reservations are nearly impossible on the weekends last minute, so definitely plan your visit in advance and a few months ahead around the holidays. It´s at this time of year they require a $200 deposit for large parties tooRistorante Pesto, not to be confused with Pizzeria Pesto just a few doors down serves up freshly made pasta dishes ranging from classics to more innovative plates and a plethora of tempting daily specials also. Our most recent visit was for my mom´s 70th birthday celebration we had a larger crowd armed with plenty of bottles in hand. Don´t forget yours! Service was excellent and even though they serve desserts, we were still able to bring our own cake in! Winning! Everyone at the table was delighted with their meals...chicken parm, fettuccine alfredo, whole grilled branzino, plump pillowy huge gnocchi, black squid ink with seafood, crab, shrimp and lobster cavatelli in blush sauce, crab avocado stack salad which was raved about, as were the outrageous complimentary balsamic carrots given prior to our large meals. Oh, and they give delicious chunky bruschetta and caprese salad to start also! Yum!!  Portions were huge, seafood was given very generously, pasta tasted as fresh as it was, and the sauces were so flavorful! It´s definitely not inexpensive and I don´t love the fact that there´s a sharing charge of $5 and no kids offerings, although my hungry gals finished almost every lick of their plates. It´s for this reason I can´t in good faith give it a 5 Star and may not recommend for those with real wee ones who eat little unless you´re planning on lots of leftovers. It´s really a must try in South Philly and I would say it´s absolutely up there with the most authentic tasting Italian spots in the neighborhood. It´s definitely one of my top two Italian spots in ALL of Philly and Mom´s absolute favorite!

Boy was this a nice change from the other Italian eateries in Philadelphia. It had an old school hospitality mixed with traditional Italian cooking, combined with a very good waiter staff and host. We were given the specials and they all sounded delightful and very detailed which i appreciated. Instead of opting for that initial special our first time there, we tried the fried calamari, the pesto gnocchi, the rose gnocchi, and the lemon cake.The staff was walking around and the loveliest host slash owner I believe asked us questions and was very sweet about the whole experience. The balsamic carrots had nice flavor and the complementary fried portobellos were the greatest thing because it let you taste their sauce.At the end of the table were the cheese and the spices so you didn´t have to ask like you usually do at a restaurant.The food tasted great and the staff were great, the decor was simple, the menu was simple, this places tastes good. The lemon cake was also very nice. The gnocchi both the pesto and the rose had strong flavors both that I would go again for, not salty but just right. I am looking forward to go again.

Wow! Simply put, the best Italian Restaurant I have ever experienced and I do mean experienced! From the gracious and beautiful host, Mrs. Connie Varalla, to the bus boy, service is impeccable. The only aspect that trumps the service is the wonderful palette of flavors in every dish. The menu is broad but filled with classics. In my first visit my friend and I had: Portabella alla ParmigianaLinguine PescatoraLinguine alla ScoglieraStuffed SteakIn truth, I asked Connie, what she wanted us to have and she had the waiter continue to bring dishes until we couldn´t eat another bite. All of her choices were favorites and unbelievable! And the bill was $100 for a veritable feast. I insisted that they increase the bill and we would gladly paid $200. Connie would have it. Best value in a meal I have ever had my whole life. Coming from a Louisiana born and raised food snob, this place is the top of the mountain. Trust me, I will be Tryon my next trip to Philadelphia. : I´ve been back to Pesto 3 more times in January. It´s just a keeps getting better. Wow! If you EVER get the chance to eat here you will be entering food heaven!

Came here with my fiancée based on prior reviews and expecting a great dinning experience.  Left here thinking that there was more than one thing missing.Overall the experience and service was just mediocre.  For starters we ordered the burrata special and Caesar salad.  When they brought out the food we also received a free plate of roasted carrots but I have the say the best appetizer on the table was the glass of tap water.   The prosciutto on the burrata was almost 40 fat and the rest of the food was fairly bland.For the main course we ordered one of the special menus don´t even think about asking for any substitutions because absolutely nothing is allowed or considered and the chicken parm.  I for one don´t understand places that serve chicken parm without any pasta.   The actual dish came out with a ratio of 50 sauce, 35 breading and 15 chicken.   Also not sure I understand the random veggie side.   My fiancée ordered one of the special dishes which she didn´t seem to enjoy at all either.Our waitress was only visible when it came time to order food or determine our check aka her tip.  The waitress handed us the drink menu and the only time we were asked about it was 30 seconds after we received the menu, obviously not enough time to open the menu and decided.  We were ready to order a bottle but no one ever came back to take our order.Overall we were expecting an epic experience and received sub par service and below sub par food.

Excellent food. Excellent service.Numerous daily specials. Have been going for many years and have never been disappointed. Make a reservation

Went for a birthday celebration.  Table of 18 was comfortable accomadated.   Food was excellent.  Started with little bracioles, calamari and eggplant rolatini.  All were excellent!  Braciole had a nice grilled taste to it and was tender.  The eggplant was best I´ve had.   The star of the show however was a special which was cavatellihomemade with shrimp crab and lobster in a rose sauce.  It was amazing!  Our server Rita was lovely and handled the large party seamlessly.  She just added to an already great experience.  Will definitely repeat

Amazing!!! I went here on a Wednesday night with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. It was pretty busy for Wednesday night but we had a reservation, you probably could have walked in a got a table shortly. When we first sat down they came over to offer us water and open on wine it´s byob or they have a full bar. The waitress was so friendly. She told us all the specials. They had a ton of specials it was like a whole new menu, everyone sounded delicious. We ordered calamari for an app. I ordered pasta with shrimp, crab meat, and lobster in a blush sauce. After we ordered they brought us out from FREE apps. They gave us cooked carrots in a balsamic garlic sauce with walnuts, it was very good. Then they enough tradition bread and oil. They also brought our bruschetta with a side of roasted red peppers and mozzarella cheese. Then our huge plate of calamari arrived. All the apps were delicious! We filled up on them a little to much.Next the pastas came, everyone really enjoyed their dishes and they were huge. I have leftovers for a few meals. We finished the meal off with the homemade tiramisu, which was big enough for 3 people to split. This place reminded me of a true restaurant in Italy. It was amazing.The lighting is a little bright in there, I think it just noticeable because the walls are white. Doesn´t give off that romantic vibe you might get at an Italian Restaurant.  Overall it was an amazing experience and restaurant. I can´t wait to go back and try other items on the menu!

First let me get this out of the way, a lot of the restaurants I rate get fives from me and that´s because I simply leave out a lot of the restaurants that I don´t like. That´s not to say that any place I haven´t reviewed is a place I don´t like but I mostly review places that I can say nice things about. And I have a lot to say about this place. Pesto is a pleasure from entry to exit. You´re allowed to bring your own drinks with no corking fee, but wait...there is also a bar? The only reason they´d do that is to make you happy, as it clearly cuts a certain of what they could be earning off your wine and stuff. But that´s the thing about Pesto, from the hostess to the waiter to the bartender there is care taken to ensure that you´re evening is in good hands. I got black ink pasta with shellfish and the taste really grew on me as I finished it. The use of garlic was arguably the best I´d ever seen I don´t know if the garlic was extra fresh or just perfectly utilized and cooked, but the taste of the garlic in this dish was super memorable. I also really enjoyed the eggplant rollatini, that one prosciutto entree seen in my pics, and the cavatelli in pink sauce with lobster. The bronzino was also really fresh and stuffed with shellfish and a delicious sauce. I was also lucky enough to try the rack of lamb which was excellently prepared and nicely presented. Highest recommendation.

This place is AMAZING! Seriously so good. I honestly couldn´t tell you what I ordered, because everything was authentic Italian. They have daily specials. I normally order one of these. Everything is made from scratch. The portions are huge! I included a pic of the left over baggie. The entrees could definitely be split, but my boyfriend and I always get our own, so we have leftovers. Also, this place is BYOB! The owners are so sweet. I was given a box of chocolates for Valentine´s Day. The staff always goes above and beyond. Apparently, Pesto won the Rachel Ray Italian Showdown. They competed against restaurants in NYC and San Fran. When I was there, they were filming the restaurant. Pesto is a true gem!

My parents and I always get Italian when they come to town. We recently tried Pesto and it´s our new favorite onebeats Dante & Luigi´s in serving staff and Ralph´s in food/taste. Incredible pasta dishes generous serving size and treat-you-like-family, friendly service. We got bruschetta on the house :- And they refilled our bread basket without our asking. It was a Thursday and busy! I´d recommend making a reservation just in case & definitely on a weekend. My parents both got specials with seafood. I got the grilled chicken and it came with two cutlets so I was able to take one home as leftovers. My sole disappointment of the night was not getting a side of pasta with the chicken, though I was able to eat some of my mother´s because she had so much. Definitely will be returning regularly. A wonderful, welcoming experience. How dining should be, well worth the money. I´d suggest wearing something a little nicer than a sweatshirt, which is what I went in, and was treated well all the same.

Great restaurant..We we´re visiting from OH and had a wonderful evening with attentive service and great food. Would highly recommend this place!

We arrived for our reservations and greeted promptly and informed they were getting the table ready. We were seated and immediately greeted to ask what type of water we would like. The waiter was soon to the table reciting the daily specials, which all sounded amazing! We choose the special of the crab/avocado/bruschetta salad: my Husband said this was absolutely delicious Chicken Tortellini soup: it is the best soup I think I have ever eaten, huge chunks of chicken and a flavor that explodes in your mouth with fresh tasting pasta Chicken Parmesan: my Son said it tasted fresh and flavorful. They also gave us some bruschetta, peppers and mozzarella cheese appetizer along with bread and balsamic carrots. Everything we ate was outstanding! This is what good eating is all about!! This place will definitely be on my must go list for Philadelphia!

We came here for my dad and brothers´ birthdays and it was an amazing experience. I got the Rachael Ray winning dish and it was very good, though I would want to try something else next time. They also give glazed carrots, bread, and bruschetta on the house. The bruschetta was especially fresh and delicious. I thought the Veal Parm was the standout of everything, I would definitely recommend giving that a try. I´m excited to try this again!

We drove in from Ohio to visit our daughter before we got to Philadelphia we called to make a reservation no one answered but our call was quickly returned and we were able to get one of the best family restaurants! The owner and staff were so polite the service was excellent as well as the food. I can´t wait to go back.

Outstanding food, extremely generous portions and the nicest staff I can remember at any restaurant. Great value and what they do with seafood as amazing!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I 100 would! The food, the service- amazing! Let´s start with Sal our server- amazing! Recited the impressive specials list- all which sounded amazing! My fiancé had the cesar salad and I had the special crab avocado salad- both huge and awesome! We also split the stuffed braciole which was. AMAZING! They even gave us an order of eggplant rollatini, complementary which was amazing! Their Rosa sauce is INSANE! For entrees I had the salmon entree with tasty shrimp crab muscles and clams in a Rosa- amazing. Matt had the gnocchi in Rosa- literally pillows in your mouth!Concetta is the most wonderful and sweet owner ever! She came and chatted with my fiancé and I towards the end of our meal. Matt couldn´t finish his gnocchi but with her convincing he did- and she brought him out a take out dish for tomorrow as he told her he was torn because he was hoping for leftovers for tomorrow. How amazing?!We then got the cheesecake and gelato chocolate martini for dessert- both amazing! Sal then threw in two shots of lemoncello!We have been to every solid Italian restaurant in south Philly and Pesto BY FAR is the best! 100 will return!

My sole disappointment of the night was not getting a side of pasta with the chicken, though I was able to eat some of my mother´s because she had so much. Definitely will be returning regularly. A wonderful, welcoming experience. How dining should be, well worth the money. I´d suggest wearing something a little nicer than a sweatshirt, which is what I went in, and was treated well all the same.

Great restaurant..We we´re visiting from OH and had a wonderful evening with attentive service and great food. Would highly recommend this place!

We arrived for our reservations and greeted promptly and informed they were getting the table ready. We were seated and immediately greeted to ask what type of water we would like. The waiter was soon to the table reciting the daily specials, which all sounded amazing! We choose the special of the crab/avocado/bruschetta salad: my Husband said this was absolutely delicious Chicken Tortellini soup: it is the best soup I think I have ever eaten, huge chunks of chicken and a flavor that explodes in your mouth with fresh tasting pasta Chicken Parmesan: my Son said it tasted fresh and flavorful. They also gave us some bruschetta, peppers and mozzarella cheese appetizer along with bread and balsamic carrots. Everything we ate was outstanding! This is what good eating is all about!! This place will definitely be on my must go list for Philadelphia!

We came here for my dad and brothers´ birthdays and it was an amazing experience. I got the Rachael Ray winning dish and it was very good, though I would want to try something else next time. They also give glazed carrots, bread, and bruschetta on the house. The bruschetta was especially fresh and delicious. I thought the Veal Parm was the standout of everything, I would definitely recommend giving that a try. I´m excited to try this again!

We drove in from Ohio to visit our daughter before we got to Philadelphia we called to make a reservation no one answered but our call was quickly returned and we were able to get one of the best family restaurants! The owner and staff were so polite the service was excellent as well as the food. I can´t wait to go back.

Outstanding food, extremely generous portions and the nicest staff I can remember at any restaurant. Great value and what they do with seafood as amazing!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I 100 would! The food, the service- amazing! Let´s start with Sal our server- amazing! Recited the impressive specials list- all which sounded amazing! My fiancé had the cesar salad and I had the special crab avocado salad- both huge and awesome! We also split the stuffed braciole which was. AMAZING! They even gave us an order of eggplant rollatini, complementary which was amazing! Their Rosa sauce is INSANE! For entrees I had the salmon entree with tasty shrimp crab muscles and clams in a Rosa- amazing. Matt had the gnocchi in Rosa- literally pillows in your mouth!Concetta is the most wonderful and sweet owner ever! She came and chatted with my fiancé and I towards the end of our meal. Matt couldn´t finish his gnocchi but with her convincing he did- and she brought him out a take out dish for tomorrow as he told her he was torn because he was hoping for leftovers for tomorrow. How amazing?!We then got the cheesecake and gelato chocolate martini for dessert- both amazing! Sal then threw in two shots of lemoncello!We have been to every solid Italian restaurant in south Philly and Pesto BY FAR is the best! 100 will return!

We went here last night for my sisters birthday dinner- the food was fantastic and the service was excellent. The owner came right up to us at the end of the night and asked how everything was. For whatever it´s worth, it´s always nice to see that the owner is very hands on at a restaurant and interacts with customers. I will definitely be back.FYI- it´s a BYOB but they also sell bottles of wine and some beer.

First thing´s first: This place is BYO wine only. I ate at Pesto earlier this week and I am still eating leftovers! As soon as you walk in you are treated like family. The owner, the chef, and the staff are all so welcoming and willing to answer any and all of your questions. You must and I say MUST get the portobello mushroom appetizer which is made and served in their homemade blush sauce. I have no idea what is in that sauce, but it was the best sauce EVER. Complimentary bread and glazed carrots are served with every table. Our table also ordered the eggplant rolls as an appetizer which are thinly sliced eggplant, fried, filled with ricotta and spinach, and then rolled and backed in a sauce. Couldn´t finish it all so I packed part of it for home and it was just as good the next day. Do not make the mistake of eating all of the bread, because you´ll get full. =When I tell you they serve one pound of pasta as an entreé I´m not lying! There was so much pasta in my dinner entreé dish it looked like I didn´t even make a dent in it. I had ordered the linguine with lobster and shrimp. Delicious. For dessert I had to get the cheesecake momma´s recipe. Light and airy I ate about 80 of it even though I was full lol. The owner comes around a few times throughout the night to check on all the guests. I love that about this place. It´s truly a family run establishment and they care about their customers. I´ll be back!

What an awesome quintessential South Philly Italian spot! I came here with two friends on a Friday night.  We didnt have reservations and the place was packed, but the hostess was able to squeeze us in. We only waited 10 minutes. The restaurant has a full bar but allows you to bring your own wine, and no corkage fee! We brought two bottles of wine. Once seated, we were quickly greeted by our awesome waitress, who recited the many evening specials from memory. I was very impressed with her knowledge of the menu. For appetizers, we ordered the braesol, the burrata, and fried calamari. Everything was very good, and the calamari was amazing. It was fresh and fried to perfection. The server brought complimentary marinated carrots and roasted red pepper salad with mozzarella balls. We were really grateful for those extra sides. They were very delicious. For dinner I got the chicken parmesan with a side of spaghetti. It comes with potatoes and the pasta side was extra, but so worth it. My one buddy got the steak stuffed with crab meat in a wine cream sauce and my other buddy got the baby lamb chop special. All of our meals were phenomenal. I was extremely taken aback by the awesome flavors. I really loved the marinara sauce. The portions were really big and the prices were really affordable, especially given the portion sizes. I cant wait to come back.

After all the hype, we decided to try this place for a birthday dinner. It didn´t live up to the hype for 3 of our 4 person group. The Pros:We got the carrots appetizer, bruschetta, eggplant roll appetizer and mussels appetizers. The appetizers were pretty good, especially the eggplant. That alone took the cake for the evening. Very delicious. The service was excellent too. If I could rate the service, I´d give it five yelps.The Cons: The bruschetta app had too much like raw onion and not enough tomatoes. It was an uneven ratio and wasn´t balanced. For dinner two of us had the Pollo Ai Carciofi, chicken parm, and pesto gnocchi. The chicken parm was average. The Pollo Ai Carciofi was a chicken breast sliced in half in a pool of broth. It left a lot to be desired and both people agreed it lacked flavor. The pesto gnocchi was terrible. Pesto as a sauce here was just bad. It was too much almost flavorless sauce. If it was the rose sauce on it that was on the eggplant rolls, it probably would´ve been good. We won´t be returning. Food just wasn´t anything to get excited about.

Pesto is a super delicious, cozy South Philly Italian BYO located right on Broad Street, so parking is easier here than most local spots! Reservations are nearly impossible on the weekends last minute, so definitely plan your visit in advance and a few months ahead around the holidays. It´s at this time of year they require a $200 deposit for large parties tooRistorante Pesto, not to be confused with Pizzeria Pesto just a few doors down serves up freshly made pasta dishes ranging from classics to more innovative plates and a plethora of tempting daily specials also. Our most recent visit was for my mom´s 70th birthday celebration we had a larger crowd armed with plenty of bottles in hand. Don´t forget yours! Service was excellent and even though they serve desserts, we were still able to bring our own cake in! Winning! Everyone at the table was delighted with their meals...chicken parm, fettuccine alfredo, whole grilled branzino, plump pillowy huge gnocchi, black squid ink with seafood, crab, shrimp and lobster cavatelli in blush sauce, crab avocado stack salad which was raved about, as were the outrageous complimentary balsamic carrots given prior to our large meals. Oh, and they give delicious chunky bruschetta and caprese salad to start also! Yum!!  Portions were huge, seafood was given very generously, pasta tasted as fresh as it was, and the sauces were so flavorful! It´s definitely not inexpensive and I don´t love the fact that there´s a sharing charge of $5 and no kids offerings, although my hungry gals finished almost every lick of their plates. It´s for this reason I can´t in good faith give it a 5 Star and may not recommend for those with real wee ones who eat little unless you´re planning on lots of leftovers. It´s really a must try in South Philly and I would say it´s absolutely up there with the most authentic tasting Italian spots in the neighborhood. It´s definitely one of my top two Italian spots in ALL of Philly and Mom´s absolute favorite!

Boy was this a nice change from the other Italian eateries in Philadelphia. It had an old school hospitality mixed with traditional Italian cooking, combined with a very good waiter staff and host. We were given the specials and they all sounded delightful and very detailed which i appreciated. Instead of opting for that initial special our first time there, we tried the fried calamari, the pesto gnocchi, the rose gnocchi, and the lemon cake.The staff was walking around and the loveliest host slash owner I believe asked us questions and was very sweet about the whole experience. The balsamic carrots had nice flavor and the complementary fried portobellos were the greatest thing because it let you taste their sauce.At the end of the table were the cheese and the spices so you didn´t have to ask like you usually do at a restaurant.The food tasted great and the staff were great, the decor was simple, the menu was simple, this places tastes good. The lemon cake was also very nice. The gnocchi both the pesto and the rose had strong flavors both that I would go again for, not salty but just right. I am looking forward to go again.

Wow! Simply put, the best Italian Restaurant I have ever experienced and I do mean experienced! From the gracious and beautiful host, Mrs. Connie Varalla, to the bus boy, service is impeccable. The only aspect that trumps the service is the wonderful palette of flavors in every dish. The menu is broad but filled with classics. In my first visit my friend and I had: Portabella alla ParmigianaLinguine PescatoraLinguine alla ScoglieraStuffed SteakIn truth, I asked Connie, what she wanted us to have and she had the waiter continue to bring dishes until we couldn´t eat another bite. All of her choices were favorites and unbelievable! And the bill was $100 for a veritable feast. I insisted that they increase the bill and we would gladly paid $200. Connie would have it. Best value in a meal I have ever had my whole life. Coming from a Louisiana born and raised food snob, this place is the top of the mountain. Trust me, I will be Tryon my next trip to Philadelphia. : I´ve been back to Pesto 3 more times in January. It´s just a keeps getting better. Wow! If you EVER get the chance to eat here you will be entering food heaven!

Came here with my fiancée based on prior reviews and expecting a great dinning experience.  Left here thinking that there was more than one thing missing.Overall the experience and service was just mediocre.  For starters we ordered the burrata special and Caesar salad.  When they brought out the food we also received a free plate of roasted carrots but I have the say the best appetizer on the table was the glass of tap water.   The prosciutto on the burrata was almost 40 fat and the rest of the food was fairly bland.For the main course we ordered one of the special menus don´t even think about asking for any substitutions because absolutely nothing is allowed or considered and the chicken parm.  I for one don´t understand places that serve chicken parm without any pasta.   The actual dish came out with a ratio of 50 sauce, 35 breading and 15 chicken.   Also not sure I understand the random veggie side.   My fiancée ordered one of the special dishes which she didn´t seem to enjoy at all either.Our waitress was only visible when it came time to order food or determine our check aka her tip.  The waitress handed us the drink menu and the only time we were asked about it was 30 seconds after we received the menu, obviously not enough time to open the menu and decided.  We were ready to order a bottle but no one ever came back to take our order.Overall we were expecting an epic experience and received sub par service and below sub par food.

Excellent food. Excellent service.Numerous daily specials. Have been going for many years and have never been disappointed. Make a reservation

Went for a birthday celebration.  Table of 18 was comfortable accomadated.   Food was excellent.  Started with little bracioles, calamari and eggplant rolatini.  All were excellent!  Braciole had a nice grilled taste to it and was tender.  The eggplant was best I´ve had.   The star of the show however was a special which was cavatellihomemade with shrimp crab and lobster in a rose sauce.  It was amazing!  Our server Rita was lovely and handled the large party seamlessly.  She just added to an already great experience.  Will definitely repeat

Amazing!!! I went here on a Wednesday night with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. It was pretty busy for Wednesday night but we had a reservation, you probably could have walked in a got a table shortly. When we first sat down they came over to offer us water and open on wine it´s byob or they have a full bar. The waitress was so friendly. She told us all the specials. They had a ton of specials it was like a whole new menu, everyone sounded delicious. We ordered calamari for an app. I ordered pasta with shrimp, crab meat, and lobster in a blush sauce. After we ordered they brought us out from FREE apps. They gave us cooked carrots in a balsamic garlic sauce with walnuts, it was very good. Then they enough tradition bread and oil. They also brought our bruschetta with a side of roasted red peppers and mozzarella cheese. Then our huge plate of calamari arrived. All the apps were delicious! We filled up on them a little to much.Next the pastas came, everyone really enjoyed their dishes and they were huge. I have leftovers for a few meals. We finished the meal off with the homemade tiramisu, which was big enough for 3 people to split. This place reminded me of a true restaurant in Italy. It was amazing.The lighting is a little bright in there, I think it just noticeable because the walls are white. Doesn´t give off that romantic vibe you might get at an Italian Restaurant.  Overall it was an amazing experience and restaurant. I can´t wait to go back and try other items on the menu!

First let me get this out of the way, a lot of the restaurants I rate get fives from me and that´s because I simply leave out a lot of the restaurants that I don´t like. That´s not to say that any place I haven´t reviewed is a place I don´t like but I mostly review places that I can say nice things about. And I have a lot to say about this place. Pesto is a pleasure from entry to exit. You´re allowed to bring your own drinks with no corking fee, but wait...there is also a bar? The only reason they´d do that is to make you happy, as it clearly cuts a certain of what they could be earning off your wine and stuff. But that´s the thing about Pesto, from the hostess to the waiter to the bartender there is care taken to ensure that you´re evening is in good hands. I got black ink pasta with shellfish and the taste really grew on me as I finished it. The use of garlic was arguably the best I´d ever seen I don´t know if the garlic was extra fresh or just perfectly utilized and cooked, but the taste of the garlic in this dish was super memorable. I also really enjoyed the eggplant rollatini, that one prosciutto entree seen in my pics, and the cavatelli in pink sauce with lobster. The bronzino was also really fresh and stuffed with shellfish and a delicious sauce. I was also lucky enough to try the rack of lamb which was excellently prepared and nicely presented. Highest recommendation.

This place is AMAZING! Seriously so good. I honestly couldn´t tell you what I ordered, because everything was authentic Italian. They have daily specials. I normally order one of these. Everything is made from scratch. The portions are huge! I included a pic of the left over baggie. The entrees could definitely be split, but my boyfriend and I always get our own, so we have leftovers. Also, this place is BYOB! The owners are so sweet. I was given a box of chocolates for Valentine´s Day. The staff always goes above and beyond. Apparently, Pesto won the Rachel Ray Italian Showdown. They competed against restaurants in NYC and San Fran. When I was there, they were filming the restaurant. Pesto is a true gem!

My parents and I always get Italian when they come to town. We recently tried Pesto and it´s our new favorite onebeats Dante & Luigi´s in serving staff and Ralph´s in food/taste. Incredible pasta dishes generous serving size and treat-you-like-family, friendly service. We got bruschetta on the house :- And they refilled our bread basket without our asking. It was a Thursday and busy! I´d recommend making a reservation just in case & definitely on a weekend. My parents both got specials with seafood. I got the grilled chicken and it came with two cutlets so I was able to take one home as leftovers. My sole disappointment of the night was not getting a side of pasta with the chicken, though I was able to eat some of my mother´s because she had so much. Definitely will be returning regularly. A wonderful, welcoming experience. How dining should be, well worth the money. I´d suggest wearing something a little nicer than a sweatshirt, which is what I went in, and was treated well all the same.
