This is our go to spot...but...

We go here as often as possible, and I would recommend it to anyone. However, this visit my wife ordered the Lasagna, and it was...well...awful! A sea of Ricotta flooded the plate and the meat was a huge messy mass of flesh at the bottom. Maybe this was a bad batch, or maybe the lasagna is just... read more

We found Pitrelli's by Yelp when we were looking for Italian restaurants in the vicinity. I am surprised that we never heard of this place in the 10 years we lived in Mason. It definitely needs a little more marketing and exposure. We tend to go Italian restaurants partly because there are vegetarian options available consistently. Pitrelli's had them too.... More

Went with family on Saturday night and could still have a conversation. Jim the owner is great and very helpful. The food is all fresh with lots of choices of homemade sauces. You must try the Turtle Cheesecake. Probably the best I ever had. Only open for dinner.

Stopped by this great place tucked away in Mason we were greeted by a bored looking young lady at the door who asked if we had reservations which was ridiculous because the very large place only had one other couple in it. We were then walked through the place to a small room in the back and sat the furthest... More

We made our reservation for a weekend ahead of time as suggested. The place was busy but fully staffed, so there was not wait, we were sitted right away and offered some bread with soft herb butter soon after we placed our order. We ordered beef ravioli in chanti sauce which was delicious, soft and tender. Their deserts (made at... More
