You know how going to a museum always makes you hungry? Mark Vetri and chef Brad Spence have just opened the door to Pizzeria Vetri on 19th & Callowhill, and added a stellar dining option to the Art Museum neighborhood in Philadelphia. Neopolitan and Roman style pizzas fired in a giant oven are the speciality here, with slices or whole pies available to eat in or for take out.
Though the pizzas may be modeled on the super popular pizzas at Vetri's Osteria, the vibe at Pizzeria Vetri is decidely less formal, with pizza varities and specials written on a chalkboard, and a small but frequently rotated selection of domestic and imported craft beers on draft. The pizza varities range from the simple (a cheeseless marinara) to the unique (Sicilian tuna with pepperoncini, mozarella and tomato sauce), but none stray too far away from traditional Italian ingredients. There are some sweet ways to end a meal, including a selection of cookies and soft serve to go.
This spot is open from 11am-11pm, seven days a week, promising a great lunch or dinner to tourists and locals alike.
