You can't buy class, but Pietro's doesn't have to. Its got class in spades. The lamb chops were very nice, the menu is nice, the service is nice and the setting is nice. If you're tired of noisy run-of-the-mill food factories, do yourself a favor, impress your SO and do it. You won' be sorry.

My Cousin and I decided we would treat them to a Special Day. The location is advertised as "ON the River" Where we were seated was across a Golf... More

We attended the brunch buffet on Mother's Day. The food selection was extensive, with a carving station, omelet station, salads, appetizers, and dessert. Waiters were courteous , and prompt to remove used plates and silver. The food quality was very good. The expansive river views make a delightful setting.

Two couples shared the river view which is nothing short of spectacular, the evening specials and a truly memorable experience. Make reservations whether in season ( dec through Moms Day) or off season. Bring a camera to capture the evening sunset over the Indian River. The nightly specials or the Sunset Prix Fix' are the best values. Ordering a la... More

We started out with cocktails at Pietro's on the Ocean a short distance down the road from Pietro's on the River. Then we arrived here for dinner. Had no reservations and by the look on the hostess' face, I feared we were about to get turned away. It was early and only a few people in the dining room. However,... More

The Pietro's by the river treated us very disrespectfully. The host was extremely rude to my sister who was celebrating her 82nd birthday. We arrived early went to the bar & were throughly enjoying ourselves, the bartender Brian was great. We didn't realize the time and the host came and rudely told us we needed to take our table. We...

Our meal was a mess of errors. I took my parents there while we visited them in Florida as a farewell dinner. There were six of us altogether, including my two children. We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived on time. The host showed us to our seats and from then on we were neglected. When our drink order finally... More

There is also a Pietro's on the Ocean several miles south of this restaurant. The entrance to Pietro's on the River could be hard to see. You can not see the restaurant from A1A. There is a large sign very tastefully done so keep an eye out. We arrived early for dinner and received a warm welcome. Our serving team... More

We went to an early dinner they call the sunset dining. The maître d' was very attentive and got our seating almost immediately. Our waiter Paul was very attentive and filled our water glasses promptly. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and was helpful in making our choices. My husband went into the bar and got us two glasses... More
