“Watertown has come of age”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I am thrilled to have this restaurant in Watertown. The food was excellent and truly homemade. I had an excellent manicotti. The others had veal Parmesan with homemade pasta. Another had a beautifully made filet.
We had the Sambuca brownie which was yummy.
They also have a great beer and wine list.
Kudos to the chef owner and his staff.

“Nice Change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

First time going to the new Pete's and with all the hype I was excited to go. Not much has changed in physical appearance but the menu is much better with a good selection of Italian dishes. I had the cheese tortellini which was excellent. Great flavor and a nice portion. My wife had the pumpkin ravioli which she really did not like due to the amount of oil the ravioli was swimming in. Service was friendly but a bit hurried. We will go back again but not to have the pumpkin ravioli. Worth giving another shot.

“Wonderful Itialian Food in Watertown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Plan your next trip thru NY to include a visit to Pete's resturant. Don't be put off by the ouside of the building, it's the excellent homade food and wonderful service that are the reasons to stop and to come back. My wife had the excellent homade ravioli and I sampled their special of chicken tetrazzini. Everything from the soups to the fresh bread and main couses were delicious. We'll end up with another meal from the take homes due to the generios portions. This place is a not to miss dining experience.

“Fabulous restaurant hiding behind a rather plain-looking pizzeria.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We booked this based on reviews from this site and were not disappointed. Once we made it past the exterior of a pizza/bar and found the dining room, we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent, the range of menu items was great, and the food was excellent. We will come to Pete's again when we are in Watertown.

“Pete's Trattoria Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We were in Watertown, NY for a couple of days and wanted to go to an excellent Italian restaurant for dinner. The food here was fabulous! We liked it so much we went back the next evening and took two more people with us. I thought the prices were very reasonable and many of the pasta dishes and desserts are truly homemade. The portions are large and the menu has several old traditional Italian dishes that you can no longer find in other restaurants. The service was also excellent, very friendly and very helpful. The outside of the place is unpretentious and the interior decor is a little plain. On the plus side they have linen napkins and old school linen tablecloths covered with white paper like in the days gone by. For a touch of atmosphere they had fresh flowers on the table and neat little battery operated votive syle candles instead of open flame candles which can be unsafe. Watertown has lots and lots of restuarants but we will definitely go here every time we are in the area and want Italian food.
