“Pietros on Watson, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

In a city of many Italian restaurants, Pietro's is one of my favorites. Their food is great and so is the service. My favorite meal is the Beef Capriati (a mustard base sauce) which is no longer on the menu but they will make it for you. John, the owner, is very hospitable. We had a wedding rehearsal dinner their and John and staff were great as was the food. I highly recommend Pietro's.

“Burn's Kunz Wedding Rehersal Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

What a fabulous restaurant! I was there for my cousin's wedding rehersal dinner, we had the outside seating area, which was large enough for 35+ people. The wait staff were all excellent. The food was excellent, we had three choices beef, chicken or veggie. All were very good, we sampled each others.....I would definetly go back on any return trip to St. Louis.

“Excellant food and service with homey charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We always have a great dinner experience at Pietro's and this past Thursday night was no exception. Our Italian family have celebrated many occasions here and each time has been a great memory of good food and service. We just celebrated my mother in law's 83 birthday. We were promptly greeted and seated at a huge round table of our choice. For starters, we ordered the toasted ravs. They always are to die for. Next, we all received our dinner salads with the famous house dressing (sweet/sour with mustard) and the best Italian bread from the Hill. Salads were very fresh and crisp. Upon finishing, our entrees were served piping hot. We highly recommend the Italian beef, red pastas and my favorite Chicken Maria. This is grilled chicken with a lemon sauce and mushrooms. It came with a side of red pasta and asparagus. Everyone was delighted with their plates and the portions were huge. A candle in a scoop of spumoni topped off Mom's celebration. They also allowed us to bring in our own birthday cake and provided us with clean plates and utensils. Again, the food was great and the service was fantastic. Everyone working smiled and were very friendly. We'll be back as soon as we can. Just wished we lived closer to be able to visit more often but it's always worth the trip into town.

“Pietro's on Watson Great Deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

Pietro's on Watson has been in business since 1960 serving great Italian food. We travel over from Columbia, IL to enjoy and evening on the patio, cold beer and very good food and friendly neighborhood service. You will not be disappointed.

“Very good and afordable Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

My family has been going to Pietro's for decades but moved to Florida two years ago. We got back to Pietro's this June and it was just as great as it always has been. Even though we aren't there more than twice a year now, the owner and servers still recognized us. The food was excellent, the price is more than fair, and the portions are large. Pietro's means Italian in my book.
