Went there for lunch for my husband’s birthday. Overall, an underwhelming experience as the food was mediocre but high prices. Service was good but prices and ambience sitting outside do not justify the price and overrated reviews.

After finishing our appetizers, the empty plates remained on our table for 45 minutes. Waiters and busboys passed the table repeatedly without clearing the plates or offering an explanation as to why the main course was delayed for so long. I flagged a waiter, and he offered they were very busy and the kitchen was backed up. Yet, the tables around us who came in after we did had already received and finished their main courses. When my pasta finally came, a busboy came by and offered cheese. When I accepted, he tossed a spoonful on my food and ran off without asking me if I wanted a second (which I did). I have been a regular customer to this restaurant and have bragged about their food and comfortable ambience. After last night's experience and seeming indifference by the staff, I can no longer recommend this restaurant in good conscience.

Cant fathom the reviews, too many other options to settle on OK food, and an unfriendly management staff (waiter was fine)…

Very good all around; the only drawback was that the entrees took much longer to come out after the appetizers. I felt rushed into eating quickly so I would not be as late getting back to work

Excellent and authentic Italian food. Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. A gem. Wait staff is very experienced and helpful. Sat outside last night and usually quiet but street noise was terrible because of a gas leak down the street. Many police and fire trucks.

Went there for lunch so it was quiet. I am not sure about the sound level of the restaurant when it is bustling. Having said that, this is one of the best restaurants. The food is remarkably good. I went with five friends and tasted everyone's dish and appetizer (ok, don't iinvite me to your meal) and every dish was better than the next.
The service is professional and personal. The owners Leo and his son Ivano are warm and friendly.
The restaurant is casual.

This may be the best Italian food I’ve ever eaten. No kidding. We ate pizzas, mussels and Buffalo mozzarella/prosciutto appetizer. All great; pizzas outstanding. Next came the main courses. I made sure to have pasta as it is fresh and homemade and delicious!!. Everyone was very pleased with: Chicken Parm; chicken Marsala; whole grilled branzino; spaghetti with turkey(!) meatballs; gnocchi. The food was amazing as was the company which made for a really special get together. Also, service was attentive without being intrusive.

Petrarca has the exceptional quality of being a favorite neighborhood lunch spot, where locals consistently go for delicious versions of classic pasta dishes, as well as a special occasion place, where the inventive special dishes of the day and the warm, friendly and attentive staff make the occasion perfect.

We live in the neighborhood but hadn't been back because of the pandemic restrictions but that's where my husband chose for his birthday lunch with our family, which includes our first grandchild—not even a month old! We were a bit nervous, but everyone made us feel comfortable -- the other people dining were great too -- and they seated us in the coziest spot -- in a corner, near the window.

We found Petrarca as welcoming as ever -- the food and wine, still exceptional, from the arugula salad, burrata appetizer, mushroom soup, the new offering carrot and ginger soup so fresh and delicious. We loved our entrees, especially our favorite —Pappardelle Petrarcha and Chicken Marsala. For dessert, the winner? Coffee creme brulee.

Thank you to the wonderful owners and for making it through a challenging time in our country and neighborhood's history -- we will be back soon!
