Naples, Italy to Freeport, Maine - Great Pizza Both Places

I'm so sorry I've waited to write this review because I loved this little pizza restuarant. My son and I went for a happy hour and got their specials and wine at half price. We were still hungry so ordered a pizza. I has just arrived from Naples, Italy where the pizza is the best but Petrillos... read more

It was a pleasant surprise finding the owner and chef on the main st handing out menu's. We decided to give it a try and was delighted to find out that all the food is homemade including the bread used in a delicious chocolate raspberry bread pudding. definitely will go again.

We followed the delicious garlic smell from the street into Petrillo's. We were seated right away during a weekday lunch. It is fairly small inside. The restaurant smelled so delicious, we were excited to try anything that was coming out of that kitchen! It looked like there was only 1 waitress for the whole place, so she was a bit... More

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch in relaxed dining setting. My meal was excellent!!! Would recommend anyone who enjoys Italian make their way to Petrillo's!!! I recommend the Lasagna Bolognese with a side of Ceasar salad. So so yummy!!!

I realize this place sits way in the back of all the shops in Freeport so it's hard to find, but if you made it this far to read this review - find this restaurant. You'll be glad you did. Everything that makes a meal great was provided for us ... 1. The waitress was prompt, courteous and when I... More

My husband and I went to Petrillos yesterday for lunch, and then again for dessert after some shopping. We started with the meatball appetizer - yum! One giant meatball, which was a perfectly sized appetizer that didn't leave you full before your meal arrived. I had the pasta special, shrimp with prosciutto in a creamy Parmesan garlic sauce. The sauce... More

Pan Roasted Salmon! Couldn't get any better, with delicious salmon delicately placed on top noodles, to the small Caesar salad I had. It was all wonderful. I only found out it was there by the person on the street handing out menus. Had it not been for him I would have settled for less. When we walked in it smelt... More

Have tried this place twice for lunch and would return- good sandwiches and fast service. It is very small inside and a tight squeeze to get to some tables- but a quick place to get in and out if you are in a hurry!

Petrillo's is a somewhat unique restaurant. The inside space is quite small with a bar/counter and a number of tables so during most of the year, it has limited seating. In addition, they have an outside, semi-enclosed seating area adjacent to the sidewalk for use in warmer weather. The inside space is cramped and not very attractive. Our table was... More

As a local I appreciate places like this. Good ftalian food at a good price. Crammed into a small space, it is nonetheless a good place for lunch and alive.
