“Enjoyed the clams”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

If you loved steamed clams as much as I do this is the place. The seafood bisque was very tasty too. Indoor or outdoor seating depending on what you like and the weather.

“Entertainment is a plus!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Petrizzo's has been around forever and could use some major updating. The food is average, and the service is spotty. Choices are slim for restaurants in Bushkill, but at least they have some sort of entertainment on weekends. Weather permitting you can sit outdoors which is enjoyable with music.

“Evening of fun at Petrizzo's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had a fun time here on Thursday evening. We were visiting family here in Bushkill and decided to stop here for dinner. Our family members had never tried this restaurant before, though have passed it hundreds of times on their way to work. None of us knew what to expect.

First of all, the food is very good. Everything is cooked to order. We ordered the hot antipasto, as suggested by our very competent waitress. It was filled with delicious fried calamari, fried shrimp, stuffed clams, stuffed mushrooms, and fried mozzarella sticks. It was supposed to be for two people, but five of us were able to eat off of this appetizer, it was so large. Additionally, we had ordered another appetizer of the fried calamari, and again, we all agreed it was one of the best we had ever tried. The calamari was freshly fried and not at all greasy. The accompanying dipping sauce tasted homemade.

For our main meals, I had the veal parmesan. Other party members had the lasagna, the steak Toscano, chicken parmesan, and a child's order of chicken nuggets and fries. My veal parmesan was very good, it came with pasta and a fresh side salad. The steak was large and cooked exactly as requested. The lasagna was individually cooked in a large ramekin and the chicken parmesan was also declared to be perfectly made. The children's portion of chicken nuggets turned out to be large pieces of freshly cooked chicken breast cut into strip size, large enough in size and in portion that two adults had the leftovers for lunch yesterday.

What made the evening fun was that Thursday night is trivia night. We sat inside the restaurant, and even though the trivia took place mainly outdoors on the patio, the speakers were loud enough that we were able to hear perfectly, and participate just fine. Every round, the "caller" would come over to make sure we had gotten all of the questions. The winner of the trivia game gets a gift certificate for dinner here. Although we did not win, it was a lot of fun and totally unexpected. Would definitely come here again on a Thursday night to try our hand at trivia again.

Our waitress was great. She was friendly and professional. We had a small child with us and she went out of her way to be nice to the child, getting her things to color on, bringing over a juice with a lid already on it. Small touches that meant a lot.

Nice people. Good food. Worth your while while in the Bushkill area.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Hubby and I ate here on our first night in Bushkill, the service was fine, but the the food was just okay and for the price you only get the meal, not even a salad to start is included with your entree.

“nice place to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

this restaurant was close to where we stayed. The food was good - had enough to take home and eat again the next day. There was a guy singing with a guitar who was ok - but could have done without him.
