After reading all the rave reviews, I felt as if I'd landed on another planet as I sat in Pietro''s, sipping a too syrupy sweet "Pietro's Margarita." The decor was an obvious takeoff from Mimi's Cafe, and the "charming" garden was in the parking lot for goodness sake! Nothing like fresh tomato sauce a-la-asphalt. The only positives about this place... More

The atmosphere is great-ask for a room by the garden! I have come alone with my husband, and other times with our son. The alfredo is good but can be a bit greasy. We love coming on Tuesdays for the special and my husband loves the seafood risotto. The bread is very good, and service is always perfect. Everyone is... More

Absolutely delicious Italian. Simple but varied pasta dishes, amazing antipasti, dessert, and entrees. The mussels are the best I've ever had. Gnocchi is so delicate and tasty. Highly recommended.

Another cross country trip to visit relatives in California and a visit to Lodi would not be complete without a stop at Pietro's, our cousins' favorite restaurant. The food is excellent. My brother-in-law said the soup reminds him of his Mom's and you can't get higher praise than that. The decor is wonderful and the outdoor gardens are a neat... More

Pietro's is a wonderful Italian Restaurant. The food is always good and very fresh. They grow their own vegetables - their tomatoes are great. This is a nice restaurant that is reasonably priced.

We sat in the outdoor area which was extremely relaxing and pleasant. Our server was nice, too. After asking for pasta suggestions, the server and busboy both recommended the spaghetti and meatballs, so that's what we got. The flavor was okay, but the meatballs had an unappetizing mushy texture. I called this to the attention of the person clearing the... More

We were returning home from the Sierra foothills around 5:00PM. Hungry, we began thinking about where we might stop for dinner. My wife checked Trip Advisor for restaurants! Pietro's in Lodi was the top rated restaurant in Lodi by users of Trip Advisor. We decided to go. Being early it wasn't crowded, but we would soon see it was a... More

Just visited Pietro's again. Every time we are anywhere near Lodi, Pietro's is a MUST. I love the calamari, but with a large salad and yummy bread (dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar), I usually take half of the calamari home for another meal. Family members have been pleased with everything they order. The service is always outstanding, and... More

For years we 5 have been coming here for celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day and Father's Day...and for no special reason at all. The food is excellent, the owners are warm and inviting, the staff is friendly and good, the atmosphere is lovely. But, 3 of us have food restrictions. First, Pietro's changed Mother's Day and Father's Day to... More
