Wish it was on main street!

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... read 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.

Small restaurant with a bar as you walk in. Has some outside seating. Not fancy and tables are close together but staff was very friendly and helpful with menu options. I'm thinking it is a very popular spot close to the Outlets but we did not have to wait to be seated. Ordered pizza with caramelized onions which was delicious.... More

We were coming back to Boston from a football game in Bangor, and were looking for a place that a couple of kids could get a vegetarian meal. Stopped into this little diner on the back side of the outlets. I had a great salad, as did one of the kids -- the other one got a pizza just the... More

This is truly a little gem of a restaurant. Sometimes the best things come in small packages! I had the steak and cheese grinder and it had a truly unique taste. Wonderfully seasoned! A+++! Try it!
