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.

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.

GREAT ITALIAN MENU AND PIZZA. TRY THE SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS, WOW!
THEY OFFER A MULTI COURSE FAMILY STYLE ITALIAN MEAL THAT LOOKS LIKE A GOOD DEAL.
THERE WERE FOUR OF US AND EVERYONE'S MEAL WAS EXCELLENT.

Excellent Restaurant. Food is always fresh and has a beautiful presentation. We love the outdoor seating and the clean environment. Service is wonderful. We always choose to celebrate special occasions at this restaurant. Family friendly as well! We love that!

We ate outside and it is wonderful, weather permitting. I based my rating on that verses the inside experience. I'm a regular diner and eat here about once a month and it is where I take
out of town guests or eat out with family. Its the best Lodi has to offer.

We come from San Jose to go to this restaurant whenever we visit our son in Galt. We stumbled upon it the first time. Now we make a beeline. Fresh fresh food and made extremely well. All the tomatoes and many vegetables are grown outside and you walk right past them to go into the restaurant. More are growing on the outside patio which is so cozy I want to live there. I really love this restaurant.

Our group of eight tried the family style menu option and really enjoyed the variety of appetizers, pastas and entrees. Highly recommend this option for large groups. Our server was outstanding. Was a nice touch to have the owner stop at our table and to recommend a couple of dishes that included assortment of sliced fresh tomatoes and fresh basil grown from the restaurant garden, salami, prosciutto, among other items in lieu of the caesar salad we originally ordered. The calamari appetizer was delicious. Our two entree items of chicken parmesan and steak were both excellent --- flavorful and tender. And the chocolate nutella dessert pizza topped with strawberries and blueberries was awesome. That topped off our wonderful dinner! We appreciated both the owner and his wife for their hands-on presence and checking in on us and asking how our dinner evening was going. They thanked us for driving up from Sacramento. A wonderful dining experience!

FOOD WAS FRESH AND DELICIOUS, ANGEL HAIR PASTA AND CALAMARI WERE PREPARED PERFECTLY. LUPE OUR SERVER WAS EXCEPTIONAL-- KIND, WELCOMING AND HELPFUL.
LOVE AND EXPECT EVEN MORE GARLIC AND CAPERS IN RECIPES THAT CONTAIN THEM.

As usual, Pietro's was the right choice for our company lunch. The secluded courtyard was a pleasant place to celebrate our recent successes and to toast the future together! My Team enjoys the variety of great food and the atmosphere that allows for conversation. When we have a milestone to celebrate, Pietro's is the go-to destination!

Go here quite often as we enjoy the food, and usually the service is quite good. Saturday was the exception, service was quite slow and left a lot to be desired. Especially enjoy the patio when Junior is working. Like the nice touch of owner stopping by your table and checking in with you!

I was in town for a high school reunion, and Pietro's has been a family favorite for many years. I took my 89 year old aunt and we called it a 'special dinner'. It was just perfect. I recommend asking to sit outside if the weather accommodates because their patio is lovely.
