Perfect local family joint

This is the kind of restaurant where you feel comfortable -- like everyone knows your name and is happy to see you. The spaghetti and meatballs are amazing! The pizza is delicious and the fried ravioli... Whoa. Can't go wrong!! This is my favorite local restaurant in Mason!

I am a Mason resident and get to Pitrelli's a few times a year. The meal is always excellent. I normally have a veal dish. I visited for my birthday with my sons in March, and again with a friend in October. Both times were excellent. The Cincinnati area is full of German heritage, so finding authentic, local Italian is... More

We have been driving by and commenting that we should stop here for dinner. Well, we will be driving by less often now. What a wonderful evening and dinner we had at this gem of a restaurant. My husband opted for a salad while I had the chicken parmigiana. The fresh dinner bread with a garlic herb butter almost melted... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The service, food and experience were great. It was just a little more than I had anticipated price-wise.

Very pretty place with lots of parking and easy access. The service was first rate except the food came out a bit slow. It was worth the wait! Authentic properly prepared and good portions. The violinist moving table to table was just so nice. We will be back.

I love Pitrelli's food. I ordered the mushroom ravioli and it was fantastic. I just wish it was more reasonably priced. 5-6 ravioli's for $18.00 and another $4.50 for a salad was WAY over priced. My husband had the chicken parm and said it was fair, but not worth the money.

This is a great family-owned restaurant. The food is deliciously prepared by Chef Linda. The specials really are special. A great place for a cozy romantic dinner or a group of friends at the bar. I highly recommend it!

A wonderful italian restaurant. As a local couple, we visit for special occasions, like our anniversary, and their wine tasting events. Love the intimate ambiance of the restaurant. Enjoy the violin player.
