Friends took us here while we were visiting; fantastic. We started with calamari that was cooked excellent, tender and you could not taste any grease it was very light, then we had Eggplant Rolatini; excellent. I was gonna go for veal parm but opted for Saltamboca, it was very good, the marsala was a little too sweet, but it was... More

Very good food! I got the chicken parm which was excellent. My husband had the seafood melody with pasta. The shrimp was huge and fresh! Staff was friendly. Took us a little bit to get the check, but otherwise they were quick.

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.

Thank Deerac
