Petrella's might not be the best Italian Food in Pensacola. I would easily rate them in the top 2 or 3. Dollar for dollar they offer a excellent product. The prices for what they serve bets the Chain Italian Restaurants bye miles. The food is honest, affordable you would be hard pressed to take your wife any where and get... More

My husband and I went to Petrella's for the first time recently. We had a little bit of a wait for a table but it was worth it! We happened to go on a Wednesday without realizing it was lasagna night. For $7.99 a plate you cannot beat it! We each got the lasagna which came with a salad and... More

This is a cozy, family run Italian restaurant located in a strip mall in northwest Pensacola. The menu is varied and the prices are reasonable. The food is excellent, so expect a wait. Wednesday's special is lasagna, so they are very busy. The biggest drawback is there is little waiting area inside so you must wait outside. Tables and chairs... More

My husband and I are re-locating to Pensacola, our realtor had recommended Petrellas. We had spent a long day house hunting and when we returned to our RV in a local campground tried to get a pizza delivered...no luck! Not one place would deliver to our location, by this time it was close to 9 p.m. We remembered Petrella's, it... More

We really enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Eggplant Parmesan and seafood Alfredo were both excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's just a strip mall restaurant but we were happy we tried it.

This was our first visit and it was REALLY GOOD. My friend even left her purse in the bathroom and they brought it to her. The food is flavorful. I had stuffed grouper...the sauce was soooo good. My friends had lasagne and veal parmesan and they were pleased. We even had left overs. I will be back again

Went here based on the reviews posted. I guess this place is great for other Italian cuisine but not pizza. Since this was my first time I got a small cheese pizza. It took 30 mins to cook. I probably should of questioned my decision to eat here when after walking into the restaurant no enticing aroma even lingered. The... More

We were looking for a place close to our hotel and stumbled across Petrella's. Best stumble ever! we had basic Italian dishes - spaghetti and meatballs that were delicious! The service was wonderful. Would go back there in a heartbeat.....

Petrella's Italian Cafe is a nice, cozy little restaurant. Husband and I dined here and enjoyed it. It was perfect for the two of us. Kind of quiet and nice for a date night. The food was very good and enough to bring home leftovers for lunch the next day.
