Service was good, food was good......not much to rave about. I found dinner to be adequate, nothing special.

What? I grew up in New York and Sunday if you weren't at a relative's house you went out to the Italian restaurant. Real old Italian food. Good pasta, good meats, nice wine (yes I was a bit young to appreciate that). Lots of noise and VERY friendly. Pietro's was a big surprise it was really good and a really... More

Everyone we asked, inn owner, restauranteur, winery owners, EVERYONE recommended Pietro. It was the first recommendation out of their mouths! They were all right. The food is fabulous. We had the antipasto appetizer, followed by Pietro salad, and then fettuccini piedmontese and penne con aglio. It was all amazing everything was wonderful. We met the owners who were both personable... More

Wish I had tried this restaurant years ago. Delicious risotto and they serve daily. Also like the 'trio' pasta dish, a nice sampling of ravioli, pesto spaghetti and lasagna. We were the first to arrive for lunch, by the time we left, it must have been 75% full. Assuming a local favorite.

We enjoyed dinner in the charming courtyard area. The service was a bit uneven and inattentive but the food was good. The spaghetti with clams was very good, paired with chiles.

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
