About Pietro's Italian Restaurant
Welcome to Pietro’s of Lodi, a newly renovated, modern Italian restaurant that serves rich flavors and authentic cuisine. Since 1957 the proud family tradition of serving great food lives on with favorites like hand-tossed wood-fired pizza, homemade ravioli, and authentic minestrone with homemade bread. We offer dishes such as Veal Saltimbocca, Cioppino and Eggplant Parmigiana. The menu is also complimented with a Catch of the Day special and our Italian Dinner Party. Our homemade desserts of cannoli, tiramisu and biscotti are made fresh daily. The final authentic touch is our on-site herb and vegetable garden patio where one experiences the true fresh taste from farm to fork.

Pietro's Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I've been to this restaurant several times and have never had a bad meal. For the second time, we sat outside in the patio area. The ambiance is great and it is quieter than inside. The only problem we encountered this time was extremely slow service. There were two outside waiters, but we sat there for at least 25 minutes and neither waiter came to take our order or drinks we had to ask the owner to intercede. The one female waiter finally checked on us, but was gone for long periods. This was obviously reflected in her tip. I found this unusual because we have always had great waiter service before.
We had reservations at 7:30 on a Friday night and it was packed. We didn’t get seated until almost 8:00, but the owner gave us a free pizza for an appetizer for making us wait. The food is always great. We have been going there for 8 years now and have never had a bad meal. The owners are always there to greet customers and really get to know everyone. I recommend Pietro’s to all my friends when they want Italian food.
While the food was good, we were extremely disappointed how rushed we were and the restaurant wasn't full. Entrees were delivered before salads were even half finished- very unprofessional! We were there to celebrate our Mom's birthday or would have complained. Very disappointed overall. So we recommend but with caution
Great Italian restaurant; the food and service were top notch. My wife has a very limited diet right now and the server was extremely patience in working with her to find something that she could eat. The wine list provided many different options for pairing with the meal. I am a Pinot Noir drinker which is not the wine of chose for this region of the state. We were located right next to the open kitchen which made the noise level a bit louder than normal, but this is where we wanted to sit.
The place was packed so be sure to reserve in advance. There is a wide range of dishes available. There is something for everyone. All our mains were quite good and very healthy portions. Service was friendly and quick. The prices are extremely reasonable for what you get. They have a good selection of wines. We ordered a white and a red local wine. Both were excellent.
A nice but increasingly noisy dinner with friends. We were not offered out door seating and the weather was perfect for it--nice patio we discovered after the fact. A BIG drawback is that they will not give separate checks. Haven't had that problem anywhere in California in ages. Rethink this policy--nobody wants to do mental math at the end of dinner!
We had a reservation for 815, and got right in. The food was very tasty. The ranch dressing was surprisingly good only not enough. I put my plate to the side and waited for the server to come back so I could ask for more dressing. She never came nor did her assistant until after another server brought the main course. The ranch dressing was so good I chose to eat my salad instead of starting on the main course. It was starting to get around closing time So I took the main course home and had it the next day. It was delicious, I will definitely be returning to this restaurant . Had I not felt a little neglected by the servers I would definitely have given this a five star all the way. But I will be back, maybe they won't be so busy.
We had a reservation and brought friends with us. The service unfortunately was awful we had to ask for water several times our drinks were not what we ordered it took a long time to get anyone to our table we never new who our waiter /Waitress was several different people came to our table yet our order kept getting passed along. We were very disappointed with the service. Usually it is much better the food was Great as always
Food was delicious! Six of us gals loved our entrees: raviolis, eggplant Parmesan and penne con aglio. There was an upcharge to switch chicken for shrimp on an entree salad and well worth it. Substitutions were allowed for individual preferences. Service was great too. Only disappointment was the dessert pizza. It had hardly any fruit on it and the crust was hard. Next time we will have tiramisu!
My favorite Italian restaurant in Lodi!
Excellent food! I could eat there every day!!
Whether it’s a full meal, or a small meal, like pizza and salad you will not be disappointed. They also have an Amazing full bar! The wine!! Oh my! That is simply a must see!!!
I just love this place, they just opened after a full renovation, they did such a good job it is so nice inside, contemporary and up to date. GOOD JOB! The food is always good, we tried the family meal and it was great, cannot go wrong. This is a must try for everyone
