Review: Pizzeria Vetri at Urban Outfitters, King of Prussia PA

Trained in Italy, Marc Vetri is a native Philadelphian at the head of a family of Italian restaurants and pizzerias. The list includes Vetri, Osteria, Amis, Alla Spina, Pizzeria Vetri and Lo Spiedo. At Osteria, I had my very first authentic Neapolitan pizza, and that occasion was also the first time I dropped over $100 for pizza, appetizers, and drinks.

Our mix of slices from Pizzeria Vetri

The first Pizzeria Vetri was located behind the fabulous Barnes Museum in Philly; we loved both the Neapolitans pies and the thick square pizza sold by the slice. Like Osteria, it was expensive but still a good value.

Adjacent to parent company, Urban Outfitters

As Vetri began turning his pizza operation into a chain, he sold all of his restaurants (except Vetri) to Urban Outfitters – an apparel and home goods retailer – in November 2015. The folks at URBN perceive some synergy between retail and restaurants, which led to the opening of a Pizzeria Vetri adjacent to the Urban Outfitters store in the mall at King of Prussia, PA.

Trays of pies we didn’t try. Yet.

We stopped by on a mid-afternoon of a winter Saturday, and there were several large trays of rectangular pie. Although the Pizzeria Vetri on Callowhill Street in Philly focuses on Neapolitans (and it seems they no longer offer square slices), this one is strictly Roman style “al taglio” pie sold by the slice.
