I can tell that this great restaurant doesn't skimp when it comes to sourcing high quality ingredients. The superior flavors are fantastic. This is a hidden gem for Lodi. They are busy, but its because they are good.

We had a preset menu for our group that included some of the classic dishes. The pesto pasta with grilled chicken was delicious. The fresh bread was delightful and the finishing nutella fruit pizza was certainly icing on top of a fantastic meal

I was in Lodi on business, and there were not a lot of good places to eat. Pietro's was recommended and I am sure glad that it was. A great restaurant - service was awesome and great ambiance. The food was superb - I had the chicken piccata and it was the best I have ever had. They were very... More

They have a great outdoor patio where a lot of food is grown and used, which makes it very fresh. Everyone is very friendly and the service is excellent. There is optional bar sitting which is cozy.

You always know you will get a good meal here. We have been coming here sine 1985! The place itself has changed in decor over the years but a consistently good Italian dinner has not changed. You can always rely on Pietros for a great Italian dinner!

Worth the wait, lots of locals. Very friendly staff and great menu. We have been twice and last time we sat outside. Great atmosphere in and out! Loved it.

The first thing we noticed was their garden. They had all sorts of veggies and lemon trees outside. When we walked in, we were greeted by the friendly host and sat right away. The bread was delicious. We had the Thursday family dinner which was enough for five people and only $35. I recommend this place of you're in Lodi... More

We go there often because I always get their Eggplant Lasagna (Parmigiana). It is served with delicious bread and salad. I have always asked for veggies instead of pasta, which my husband loves. Can be a little noisy.

This place is a gem, and the owner Jimmy runs a great establishment. The food is top shelf, and when the weather permits, the patio really sets the mode. The prices are right on the brink of being high, but overall a great meal.
