This is a great place. Little Italian place in downtown Peabody. The owner and her sons are terrific and so nice. The food is amazing. I have been here a few times and never had a bad meal. Even if you just want a quick lunch , they have on the left side as you go in, a lunch spot.... More

I arrived after 8:30 on a Friday evening, dining by myself. The greeter asked if I wanted to sit at the bar, and I agreed. The bar turned out to be upstairs where there was a second dining area. Every employee I encountered greeted me and was friendly. I chose spaghetti Bolognese ($18.95). The large serving arrived within 10 minutes... More

We're disppointed. There was so much meat in the bolognese it was more like eating chili mac rather than an Italian supper. Antipasto was OK. Nothing to race about.

This place is the best on the North Shore...no need to go to North End when the portions and food will rival any place that I have been. I always say that when I eat Italian at other restaurants the food at Petrillo's is consistently better and and cheaper. I have been going there since they opened about 11 years... More

We loved Petrillo's!! We arrived on a Friday evening around 7 with no reservations for a table of 4. It took only a few minutes to be seated. The food is AMAZING. So so good! Huge portions but everything was awesome. Caprese salad and toasted ravioli apps left us wanting more. The pasta dishes were awesome. The mushroom ravioli app... More

This restaurant is an excellent choice. The meals are not only tasty but portions are decent size. The atmosphere is intimate as it is not a large restaurant I feel its just the right size. Service is good.

We had dinner here on July 4th weekend. The bread was slightly stale, but the house salad was pretty good. The restaurant is old school. Really good Italian restaurants would never have grated cheese that is left on the table in a shaker like they do at Petrillo's. The upstairs seating is depressing. Each meal was just mediocre. The staff... More

What a lucky find for us. We were a party of 3 for dinner on Sunday night. We were seated right away and drink orders were taken and a basket of bread was delivered. We started our meal with the Bruschetta. Four thick slices of toasted homemade garlic bread arrived covered with chopped tomatoes, diced mozzerella, slivers of basil and... More
