I came in for my first visit tonight. My wife got the Pitrellis Isalada to go and that was $17.50. Are you kidding me for a salad? Then my to go Lasagna came and it was $18.50 no salad or soup with it. I think the food is okay but definitely not worth the price we all know how much... More

Had our first visit here based solely on Trip Advisor ratings. Liked that they take reservations. They have indoor & outdoor seating, also a plus. We all thought the indoor ambience was nice, too. Best part of the entire evening was the 95 year old violinist who made his way through the establishment, played requests & genuinely enjoyed interacting with... More

This is a wonderful local restaurant. The service was great, although it took a little longer than usual to get our food. But since we weren't in a hurry, and the food was more than worth it, it wasn't a problem! Everyone enjoyed their food. I had the Porcini (mushroom) and Truffle Oil Ravioli, and it was sublime!! Light and... More

After wishing the Cincinnati had better Italian food, we discovered Pitrelli's Restaurante. It immediately became our favorite Italian restaurant. When you walk into the building, ycan tell you've arrived at a place at which you'll stay. Great food and appetizers, fun atmosphere for friends.

This was our first visit to this establishment and we were very impressed. The food was very good. But what was most impressive was the 95 year old violin player named Jack who visited each table with a song or two. He plays Friday and Saturday nights! So come for the violin stay for the great food!!!

This was our first trip and we were made to feel like regulars, from the first greeting to the last goodbye. The kind of table I requested (through Open Table) was given to us, the owner greeted me by name and by the time we left we felt like we were neighbors. I'm sure, however, if you were in the... More

We have eaten dinner here several times, always start with drinks at the bar. They did a great job of turning the old post office into a homey Italian restaurant with wonderful food and service. It feels very hometown there, like you've known them for awhile. We took out of town guests there also, and they loved it.

As I have said before, being an Italian who loves to cook, I tend to grade Italian eateries tougher. Pitrell's passed my test with a combination of its quaint, throwback atmosphere, creative menu, good service and tasty food. I have dietary restrictions (cream, saturated fat) and they were graciously accommodated. I asked them to alter their linguine with clam sauce... More

Living nearby, I have wanted to visit Pitrelli's for years and finally had the opportunity to dine there with 3 friends. The ambiance is wonderful the moment you walk through the front door...warm & inviting. We were fortunate enough to be greeted by the owner who was absolutely delightful as he shared the history of the place. The bar area... More
