This is a great Italian themed joint. Has a very nice, professional bar area.....selections are just enough on the menu, and the breadth of selection ensures there is something for everyone. We took a large group of 12 here for a business dinner. With recommendations from a wonderful server, the appetizers and entre's were 100% "to die for"...and the selections... More

We stopped at Pete's on Friday the 13th. We found it by checking the reviews. My son and I had the lobster bisque and it was excellent. My wife tried the mussels and was very happy with them. All of our dinners were very good. We will be coming back soon.

My husband and I went here after reading reviews and talking with people in the community. We went the day after Valentine's Day which was a Sunday. They have their regular menu but also a family style menu on Sunday's. It was just the two of us so we ordered from the regular menu. We think this is the best... More

I tried this restaurant based on the great ratings here on trip advisor. I was disappointed. The atmosphere is old, the food was only ok. I ordered the spaghetti special. The pasta was over cooked, the sauce was under flavored - saved only by the meatballs. Overall, I can say the service was good but the food will not bring... More

I saw this was #1 ranked and decided to try it, I am glad I did. They had gluten free items on the menu which is a must for me. We tried the french onion soup and the crab bisque both were perfect. Plenty of bubbly cheese on onion soup and plenty of crab in the bisque. Salads were Caesar... More

We are travelling from Canada regularly to have dinner and are never disappointed. I always order the same thing, pear salad and chicken portobello. Both are out of this world. My husband ventures around the menu and specials and is never disappointed. I always treat myself to dessert. Love the Italian bread that is made there. Leftovers are enjoyed just... More

We were visiting a relative and had never been to Watertown before. We didn't want to eat at a chain. This was a great find on the first try. Warm, soft bread that reminded me of my grandma's in WV. Decent drink prices. Kind of a dark atmosphere with its blue and black decor. Awesome awesome service! Very busy on... More
