About Pietro's Italian Restaurant
Welcome to Pietro’s of Lodi, a classic Italian restaurant that serves rich flavors and hearty portions at affordable prices. Since 1957 the proud family tradition for serving good food lives on with favorites like hand-tossed pizza, homemade ravioli, and authentic minestrone with homemade bread and broiled chicken with angel hair pasta. In addition, they offer delicious traditional dishes like eggplant lasagna, chicken florentine, and veal scaloppini. The menu is also complimented with Dover filet of sole, pancetta prawns and calamari steak. Their homemade desserts of cannoli, tiramisu and biscotti are made fresh daily. And the final family feel to the restaurant is their on-site herb and vegetable garden patio where one experiences the true fresh taste from the garden to the kitchen. It gives one the feel of a "meal with mama" on Sunday afternoon in Italy. Come enjoy the experience and meet the owners Jim and Annette Murdaca personally, as they meet and greet you at the door.

Pietro's Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Eggplant parmesan was delicious, however per the menu, it says served over roasted vegetables. It was actually just a bed of green beans, which I find to be utterly repulsive. It would have been nice to know beforehand so that I could have requested a substitute or to have the green beans completely withheld. Other than that no complaints at all. My date ordered the Ravioli, which was absolutely amazing!

I eat at this restaurant about 4-6 times per year as it is in another city, but still close by. I love the fact they use fresh herbs that they grow in a garden just outside the restaurant. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and their antipasto appetizer is a great start. The service is usually very good as are their drinks. A great place to take the family or friends.

Has always been one of my favorite places to eat. However they really seem to be cutting back. They no longer serve veal. The portion sizes are now smaller and the quality also seems to be suffering. I was very disappointed as were the others in my party.

My husband and I have been dining at Pietro's for several years. I can't think of one time we were disappointed. We have brought many friends and family and have heard nothing but good things. The staff are always on the run, but at each table they're friendly, professional and as attentive as time will allow. The food is always fresh, delicious and perfectly prepared. Much of the produce is grown right on the property and of the very best quality. The wine is outstanding. You have to try the Cioppino! The bread is warm and fresh and the Tiramisu is exceptional. I can't think of one negative thing to say. Oh, well, maybe the fact that I couldn’t get a table on the spur of the moment once. Every chair was full inside as well as out on their beautiful patio, which by the way, has a cozy fireplace. Can’t say enough good stuff!

Lunch for a friend's birthday. Their first visit. The patio seating was great for the celebration. The food was excellent and friends were impressed with this Lodi gem. The patio ambiance on a sunny fall afternoon was superb. Our compliments to the chefs and wait staff. Thanks for making our friends birthday lunch a memorable success.

There were six of us, we requested and were seated on the patio. Really nice, there are heaters if it is a little cool, easy to hold a conversation (quiet). The food is always great and not overpriced. Try the Calamari.

FIRST visit, will definitely return ... if just to have their Risotto with mushrooms .... Outstanding.
The trio pasta was hearty and tasty, like the 'mixed' selection over one item. The bread was so good, was filling up on it before our main dishes arrived.
Nice portions, enough for us (two ladies) to bring home left-overs.
Our waitress, Juliana was excellent.

Pietros is by far one of my favorite places to eat in the Sacramento Region. Patio dining transports you to another place...
The wine list is consistently strong in local wine choices and the prices are exceptional.
Food is flavorful and hot. The daily specials are just that; special!
I will continue to eat here. Have been for 28 years.

We've been going to Pietros for years - always been one of our favorites. But this time was different... menu changed, no more veal! Service was NOT good. Waitress took way to long to ask us to order, and wasn't attentive. Food so-so. Makes us wonder if Pietros has run its course for us?

This was a wonderful night with friends. Thank you, Pietro's for accommodating our request for a table overlooking the patio. Our friends had never been to Pietro's before and they were surprised by and delighted with the garden and patio areas. We had such a pleasant night with great service, delicious food, beautiful ambiance and lively conversation. We were all obviously in the mood for traditional Italian dishes, two of us ordered the chicken parmigiana and the other two ordered the eggplant parmigiana. The servings are ample and the food was the perfect balance of wonderful red sauce, cheese, and chicken/eggplant. Three of us ordered salads and one person ordered the clam chowder. The person eating the chowder said it was delicious. The salad eaters enjoyed the garden salad. We also ordered the bruschetta appetizer that was so colorful and flavorful. Pietro's is always busy, so I highly recommend making reservations especially of you're planning a weekend dinner visit.

This was our second time here. We were amazed the first time we were there. Our waiter explained in detail the menu items. This time around it was outstanding service! We got to sit outside and the venue is gorgeous! Our food was exquisite! Definitely coming again.

Food is delicious and there are gluten-free options. I love walking past the trellised vegetable gardens growing along the walkway to the entrance of the restaurant. The patio dining is lovely.
The owners are warm and friendly--just like eating at an Italian "Tuscan" villa.

Never disappoints! We celebrated a birthday with family and the food and service were excellent as always. Parking can sometimes be a challenge, but otherwise this is a no-fail pick for dining out for any reason. And they have the absolute best outdoor dining---private, beautifully landscaped, spacious. Highly recommend.
