My favorite eating establishments are usually pricey local places. My favorite Orlando spot is the Ravenous Pig. The reason I like these places is the servers are typically there forever and I rarely need to see a beer list or a menu, because they remember you and suggest something perfect. As such, I never mention the value you get for your money. However, at Petrella's you get a lot of value for your money. I ordered veal and I got veal and a solid salad for $14.00. That is likely part of the reason the place was packed on a Tuesday night a 5:00 p.m. with friends and young families and older couples. The other reason was the warmth. There were 4 waitresses that also played hostess and bus boy. They worked with ease and like a team that has been together for years. They greeted everyone, including my party of 1, like they knew you and really wanted you to be there. The veal was good too.
