Great food

We ate at Petrellas today and had a wonderful meal. Started out with fried mushrooms which were cooked just perfect. Then we had lasagna and baked spaghetti, both were excellent. Our server was excellent as well.

A great local restaurant. OK food, reasonably priced. They also offer discount coupons in the local mailout... Seems the retired community likes it a lot. Not open Sundays! Usually little or no wait to be seated...

We were visiting family in Pensacola and was looking for a non-chain Italian and reasonably priced restaurant and fell in luck. The portions were large and the food was excellent. They do not take reservations and the restaurant can probably only seat 75 people, but that was OK. One of our guests tried the fried pasta and said it was... More

I've had lasagna all over the world but this lasagna is crazy enough my fav!! I don't know how they make their sauce but it's crazy tomato sauce. They tell me you can buy just the sauce to add to your own recipe. Yes it's that amazing. Service leaves something to be desired and it does take a little while... More

Hard to go wrong with this restaurant. Some times the lobster ravioli is superb other times just good. Same with the other menu items. Always good just sometimes awesome.

Want to go to a small place with personal service, great menu and fine food. Go no farther, its right here in Pensacola. Petrella's is just the place for a couple or the whole family, but come early as it fills up quickly. You can dine in or carry out, but no matter your choice you will enjoy.

We visited last week for lunch and we were both happy with our decision to try out the place. Date had eggplant parmesan and I had the chicken parmesan and both meals were very good. I especially liked the tomato sauce that came on the chicken and with the spaghetti. It was very tasty and sort of sweet. Yum!! We... More

I was very unhappy with my experience at Petrella's. Bad service and bad food. The place was not very busy so I do not see any reason for the bad and slow service. Our waitress seemed to have many other things on her mind other than her job. Follow that up with not warm enough food that was also rather... More

Food was good & staff very friendly. Prices are decent. Look hard or you'll miss it. Fives kids and we were treated like family. Not all places do when the age range is 19 - 1.

Good service and good food, to make this short and sweet. Invited family and friends to meet at Petrella's. Picked for a central location for us all to meet. We were seated within 30 minutes, with a large group. Started with salad and stuffed bread sticks(a little tough). We each ordered a entree, everyone enjoyed there large portions and tasty... More
