“Been there twice.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

For small appetites pizza and salad would be enough. I found the veal saltimbocca to be too salty for my taste, but my wifes veal parmigana with mushrooms was better. I like the local wine selection and the prices.

“Just like family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner at Pietro's. The food was fabulous! We had planned it family style and couldn't have been more pleased. There was so much food that we even took all the left overs home! The staff was wonderful and had everything ready in the room when we arrived. It was a great dining experience!

“Very nice find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

The food, service and ambiance is very nice in this restaurant that has a very nice family feel. It seems that this is the place to go for locals and visitors alike. Future tip -- if they want to be a bit more welcoming for the gluten intolerant it would be good for the kitchen staff to study what gluten really is, and how it can be easily substituted. It doesn't have to be bland!

“Great Food--Great Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Pietro's! The food was delicious and the ambiance as we sat outside with the lights, the fountain, the fireplace, and the heaters for the cool autumn evening made the meal even more special. One of the people in our party of four ordered the calamari steak which was amazing. I have never liked calamari because it always seemed tough and rubbery, but this was tender and cooked to perfection! The lasagne is fabulous as were the other meals that we ordered. The freshness of the vegetables is assured when you see their own garden between the parking lot and the restaurant. This restaurant is so good that even on a Thursday evening, it was very full. Reservations are definitely recommended! You can call ahead or make the reservations online.

“A good choice for a good meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Being lucky enough to have eaten at the original Pietro's in Vacaville, since 1970, I have to say-our Lodi Pietro's is almost as good as when Mama and Papa Murdaca were doing their original dishes back in the 'old days'. The food is very good and the restaurant is very lovely-especially with the addition of their outdoor garden dining area! They have a wide variety of choices, the service is very good and I can definitely recommend it. They can also accomodate private parties which is nice if you have a group wanting to enjoy a delicious meal. They go that one step further in making you feel welcome as well as serving you a very good, and usually huge meal! I think I've almost always brought home a 'doggy box'! Their pastas are wonderful!
