“GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We had been here in the past and wanted a nice atmosphere, ambiance and food for our anniversary, so we chose to return. We wanted for nothing!! The service and food was excellent. Our team, Jay & Donna were great along with the Manager Greg. I had the Seafood Riviera & my husband had the Duck along with the Beet Salad, all was excellent and served to perfection. What a wonderful celebration we had.

“Pretty setting but really lousy food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We have tried Pietro's for dinner twice, and been disappointed each time. The setting and service are lovely, but the food is really poorly prepared. On this last visit, we both ordered the grouper special and it was so tough and dried out we simply took about 2 bites and left the rest for our dogs (they enjoyed it, but they are less discerning :-)) I can recommend the bar there for a nice drink with a sunset view over the river, but be smart and go somewhere else for dinner.

“Overpriced food with a good view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful view. Came for work Christmas party. Was not impressed with food taste or variety. Very expensive.

“Nice View- Overpriced So-So Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We made a reservation for four and went with another couple. We hadn't eaten there in years because it is quite a way out on Hutchinson Island. The views are nice at sunset, but they've let a hedge outside the windows get too tall so for most of the diners, you would have to stand up to see the water.
The atmosphere in the dining area is pleasant with linen tablecloths and napkins. I ordered their crab cakes after asking the server about their consistency and whether they were made on premise. He told me they were and of course, that they were very good. When they were served, they were dry, somewhat tasteless, and had a tiny drizzle of sauce on top. They don't compare to the crab cakes up the road at Shuckers!! My friend had the scallops which were also lacking in flavor.
My friemd's husband had the pappardelle with sausage and he said his was good. My husband had the snapper which he enjoyed. As a group, we decided that we would not be dining there again. Especially since the prices are high and the food isn't exceptional.
