I heard by word of mouth that the food was really good. Let me start by saying the service was superb!!! Everyone was excellent! The bruschetta was mouth watering, don't miss it. they bring complimentary bread but save your stomach for the food!!! The Pietro's garden salad was simply great. Ok, now down to the entrees. They have a great... More

This is one of five restaurants we chose to eat at when staying on our boat in the Delta. We have eaten at Pietro's for 12 years and always find the food and service to be good. We are very particular about our restaurant meals and never disappointed.

Went to Pietro's for lunch while on the road. Remembered a coworker telling me it was the best place for Italian food in Lodi so I took his word. Big mistake! We arrived to an almost empty restaurant (off hours), which was fine by me since it would not be a long wait for food. I ordered the Veal Piccata... More

Pietro's is a great family Italian restaurant that has something on the menu for everyone, from a picky foodie to kid that just wants pizza. Good wines that are well priced, a friendly trained staff, a beautiful patio for outdoor dining. The veal dishes are great.

Small town restaurant...big city Italian...eggplant lasagne today was to die for. Bread unbelievable. Crisp salad. Another had some of the best calamari I've seen. All in all ...I'm going back.

What a great find. Stopped for lunch, had chicken/shrimp spinach salad. Was actually a tomato salad with lots of chicken and shrimp on a bed of spinach with cucumbers, pepperchinis and a light vinaigrette dressing. The fresh capresse bruschetta was grilled to perfection, with lots of tomatoes and basil. The asparagus, pancetta pizza was also excellent. Service was superb. Definitely... More

The bread was delicious and a good start to the meal. The house salad had beans and cranberries which was surprisingly good. The veal Parmesan was so large we had to box half and take it with us. The McCay Zinfandel was a good complement. Our only suggestion would be to have food runners so that everyone got their food... More

There is a reason this place is #1 in LODI. It is THAT good. From the owner, to the busboy, everything is done to perfection. I travel for a living, and make sure I can stop here. Wonderful fresh bread, pasta, tomato sauces, salads, etc. This place would be awesome in any market, LA or NY. Lodi is lucky! Please... More

Had dinner with another couple and greatly enjoyed our meal. Our server was attentive without being overbearing. We were offered drinks and they were delivered promptly. The entrees were well presented and delicious. I particularly enjoyed the pairing of veal parmigana and ravioli. We were so full we couldn't even split a dessert. The bread was warm and nearly melted... More

Had lunch here twice during our vacation in Lodi. The service is quick & attentive. The hot bread was lovely and we devoured it immediately. My children chose from the kids menu. Good choice menu & very generous portions; its good that a restaurant offers the same food rather than chicken nuggets and chips. They had pizza, spaghetti bolognaise &... More
