Food was great aside from the salmon with balsamic (it was very fishy and the balsamic was a little burnt).

went to Petrarca before an art show and the restaurant has a great ambiance.
the service is very good and the food preparation was excellent. try the tomato soup....
pizza very good and the wine selection of course is its signature.

Unfortunately this time they didn’t even have a lot of things in the menu available, usually the salmon is wonderful but this time it was not fresh and it would be nice if they explain the octopus salad is actually a potato salad.
It is a shame as this was one of our favorite restaurants.

Waiters are attentive but still get things mixed up. 3 of our4 dishes (all meaty) were just fine. The spaghetti with minced turkey balls in tomato sauce had no taste at all. Given the prices should do able to do far better.

We stumbled on this gem last year while in the city for our biggest client conference. Needless to say we returned and had a great experience once again! All 13 of us loved our meals...and the wine. Leo and his team do a great job!

Petrarca is an old favorite, and so it was clearly the natural spot to celebrate our anniversary. The staff, from the manager to the servers, were (as always) incredibly friendly and helpful — and the food was as outstanding as ever. I’m very partial to their fettuccine with the lamb ragu (a frequent entry on their specials), and the stuffed chicken was apparently fantastic also. The quality of the wine (a Grüner and a Primativo, in our case) is alone worth the trip. is This remains not just a neighborhood gem, but a city-wide gem.

Lovely restaurant with great italian food in a warm and stylish atmosphere. Enjoyed a wonderful meal with friends from out of town, the service was friendly and attentive while we never felt rushed at all. A true gem in this part of town.

We had an early dinner for four, which was wise because it got quite loud as the evening went on.
I enjoyed the lamb ragu with pasta and it was very tasty; my husband enjoyed his spagetti carbonara. Our friends liked the chicken and the lasagna. We shared a tasty appetizer of calamari. Our portions were large and we took the pastas home for lunch the next day! The restaurant is lovely and charming and we'd return happily.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant after getting some documents at the courthouse. We showed up a few minutes before they were officially opened and we were welcomed warmly in.

I have a few allergies and found a great dish I could eat! Very happy about that. The scramble with zucchini and onions was perfectly paired with potatoes and a salad! It was fresh and yummy! My dining companion had a broth with tortellini in it followed by a pasta with Bolognese which he thoroughly enjoyed. There was a good beer for companion and I have a lovely tea.

The service was lovely the wait staff was exuberant and helpful. I found the service very warm and friendly. I'd highly recommend this spot for an array of meals with an array of people.

Food was very good. Service was good as well. The only issue (and it no fault of the restaurant!) was the party with the loud children. It was difficult to have a conversation since the parents were not controlling their children in the restaurant. Again, NOT the fault of the restaurant

This was our second time here. We loved it so much that we came back with a friend- an Italian friend who cooks really well. The food was awful this time, and my friend agreed. The veal was tough like shoe leather, the potatoes ice cold in the center and the fried calamari batter was flavorless. Although the waiter sympathized with us, the manager refused to make it right and told us to withhold the waiter’s tip if wanted to ‘make it right.’ That was pretty nasty, since the waiter wasn’t responsible for the horrible food! Will never return!
