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

I was excited to try this restaurant based upon the positive reviews, but honestly, we weren't really impressed. My eggplant parmesan was just deep fried, then sauce and cheese were put on it, and I'm assuming it was put under the broiler. It wasn't baked like it's supposed to be. As a result, it has a greasy taste to it... More

I wish I could rave about Petrella's being as good as others seem to think but I'm afraid it isn't even the best in Pensacola. This was our (my wife and my) first visit to Petrella's. We started with an order of Bruchetta. We were surprised that we didn't receive the traditional pieces of Italian bread covered with Pesto and... More

Have never had a bad experience at Petrella's. It gets crowded and you will have a wait if you get there much past 5PM. If you live in Pensacola, this is one of the best Italian restaurants in this area. The food is great and in my experience, consistent as well as a great value for the price. The portions... More

Only one word to describe Petrella's--SUPERB! Everything I have ever eaten at Petrella's has been excellent. The salads and bread are perfect. The entrees are always superb.

As mentioned by others, this is a casual restaurant located in a strip mall at the corner of Pine Forest and Nine Mile Road and well worth the drive from anywhere in the Pensacola area. Also, as others have stated, it fills up fairly early with many locals by 5-6pm even on weekday nights. I have eaten here maybe two... More
