Great Local Place To Eat

Love this place. Our preferred time to go is Spring/Summer so we can sit outside and enjoy the weather. The Pitrelli's always make it a nice evening. Feels like you are part of the family.

Went with a group for a Birthday Celebration. Almost everybody ordered something different and everyone raved!! Large portions, some can be ordered in 1/2 servings and many can be split. They are also known for their Pizza. We just had to try so we ordered one as an appetizer and everybody had a taste. They also offer many different sauces... More

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 plain bad. I... 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.
