Best Italian in San Joaquin

My husband and I frequent Pietro's. The food is OUTSTANDING, the staff amazing...especially Angie, the bartender. She always remembers her guests and is great with wine recommendations. Just can't say enough about this place - you have to see (eat) it to believe it!

You will love eating here! The Gnocchi is my favorite! Owner Jimmy Murdaca will greet you on most days, making you feel like you just came to visit he and his wife, Annette's home! Be warned though....don't fill up on the scrumptious warm bread before your meal comes!! Enjoy!

Very good food and service from the waitstaff. Ignore the Highway 12 "industrial feel" of the location and give this place a try. The owners have been in town forever, and are very philanthropic in our community. If the weather is nice, ask for a table outside in the garden. I cannot give a positive review to the host and...

We visited Pietros on a very busy night of a very busy Mothers Day/Graduation weekend. The place was packed but luckily we'd made reservations for our party of 7 weeks before. We were greeted with smiles and waited only a few minutes for our table to be ready. The service was very efficient and friendly. We enjoyed the house special... More

Pietro's is our family's go to place for celebrations or when we want to impress a guest. If you are able to opt for the outdoor patio - you are in for a treat. The ambiance is second to none. The wait-staff is knowledgeable, courteous and on it! Their bruschetta is the best I've ever tasted. Anywhere. Ever. All of... More

Pietro's has been in Lodi, California for as long as I can remember,however I had never eaten there. My wife, though, had many business association meetings there and had said the food was really good. Yesterday, we attended a memorial service for a friend's father who had passed and the family then wanted everyone to come to Pietro's for lunch.... More

Have enjoyed group lunches here with a wide assortment of delicious appetizers (Antipasto, Ciabatta Garlic Bread, Bruschetta) & varied pizza selections (partial to the Bel Paese pizza with prosciutto & grilled asparagus). Recently visited for dinner & outside patio seating on a beautiful Spring day. The Penne al Pietro (with prawns, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, broccoli sautéed in garlic, olive oil)... More

Had the Chicken Parmesan with a sidecar of spaghetti, roasted asparagus, minestrone soup, and a large round loaf of fresh baked bread. I was stuffed and ready for a nap after the meal was over and I loved every bite. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable and the decor took me right back to Sicily. Which is quite a feat, since...

Pietro's is a well-known italian restaurant in Lodi. Lot's of food choices but the chicken garlic pizza was fantastic. The pizza is a horizontal shape-very unique.
