My wife and I set out on Sat, the first of december to do some x-mas shopping. After making our way through the crouds at various stores we decided an early dinner would be our reward. Petes came to mind as many of our friends had informed us that Chef Geoffry Puccia had taken over and done some changes to the place. Changes with such detail to traditional Italian cooking as well as local favorites ,Half hots and Utica greens. We also tried two of the salad offerings and were blown away! This a must stop for locals, and if your visiting the area make sure this is on your list of places to eat. The dining room is clean and cozy,The staff is freindly and attentive. My wife and I can hardly wait to get back!

Pete's was remodeled and under new management this fall. The food is SUPERB...one of the best chefs in our area is the owner and main chef. Italian sauce is outstanding and many varieties of foods to choose from. We go here OFTEN. There is "Take Out" if desired and every Monday night is "all you can eat spaghetti" which includes a beverage, salad, bread and the pasta. Reservations suggested as it gets VERY busy!

..not familiar with Watertown area-was happy to see, on a bleak Friday night, lights in the window. and the most delicious aromas calling to us right over the sidewalk and up to the door. Simply excellent homemade pastas, sauces, greens and an order of calamari we made disappear in a flash! Many "old world" dishes available on menu as well-like "Beef Marrow Plate.!" Dining room was fully reserved for many simultaneous private parties albeit December, so we were directed to a table in the cozy bar with many apologies...no need! Service was excellent, food was incredible. Next time we're in "North Country," we'll make it a point to dine at Pete's. Truly worth the trip from 'most anywhere!

Went out Wed. night with my oldest Son, Brother In Law, Nephew and Cousins for our traditional "guys night out" the night before Thanksgiving. Once again, Chef Geoffry took care of us!

We started out with an order of Calamari, Utica Greens and Half Hots..Madonna Mia they were good....so tasty!! The we followed with orders of Eggplant Parm, Chicken Parm and homemade pasta in olive oil....all so delicious!!

The service was great and the staff is so very friendly!!

You must make it a point to stop and enjoy this expierence for yourselves!!

Under new management, with an updated name, we have dined at this restaurant many times. Homemade menu items, both
traditional and gourmet, have all been exceptionally prepared,
and are reasonably priced. Wait staff is friendly and efficient.
Comfortable setting for family dining or celebrating special
occasions. The dining room is nicely redone featuring
photos taken by owners while traveling in Italy. Recently rated five fork by local food critic. Give it a try, you will go back.
