Great Food but high price

The service was great. The food was great. But we paid over $30 for a large specialty pizza. For 2 large pies, a family style salad, 3 appetizers, and NO ALCOHOLIC drinks the final bill including tip was $171.

I absolutely loved my pizza from here and thought that their crust was just amazing. In fact, the crust was perfect. For more pictures and commentary, check out www.gustatori.com.

Pizza was delicious but slow service. We tried to order the calimari grilled instead of fried but they would only make it deep fried, too bad. First we waited for 20 minutes to get the check, then another 1/2 hour to actually get the bill paid. It was a nice evening out and great people watching so we passed the... More

Pietro's is a lively Italian restaurant with an extensive menu, sure to please almost anyone. They clearly specialize in pizza, and everyone at the table who had that was very satisfied. I went with the Ravioli and while it was good, it wasn't terribly memorable. Still, definitely worth checking out! An added bones? The outside dining area!

Delicious Italian cuisine! We ordered the risotto balls, arugala salad, and Pietro's pizza (smoked mozzarella, prosciutto, and arugula) and we're very full and happy afterwards. We did order coconut sorbet after, served in a coconut shell. Sweet and light way to end the evening. Great spot and worth the wait.

Everyone I know loves this place. I have been here countless times and can't get myself to enjoy it. The ambiance is good. The food is okay. The price is affordable. They offer great outdoor seating.

I've been three times to Pietro's. Wanted to share it with friends. It has really good Italian food especially the pizza. Salads are excellent as well. Portions are big, a main course and a salad were too much for a guy to handle. I would order either or, then will leave full.

Took my teenage children for an early dinner. We ordered the Caesar salad (individual), Spaghetti and meatballs and chicken parm. We shared the 3 dishes and there was PLENTY of food.

Went to Pietro's on the suggestion of our hotel's concierge. Great Italian food in a casual atmosphere. We had the calamari, sausage pizza, chicken limone, and spaghetii and meatballs. Everything was great, including the prices.
