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. It gives one the feel of a "meal with mama" on Sunday afternoon in Italy! Come and meet the owners Jim and Annette Murdaca personally, as Chef Pietro Murdaca continues the family tradition from the kitchen.

Love the new interior. Always a pleasure to watch the kitchen activity.
Our favorite thing is the great food not to mention the wonderful selection.

We went a few weeks ago and it was better than this time. Alfredo sauce had no flavor. Chicken parmesan was not that great.

Our reservation was at 7:30. I checked in at 7:20 and we were not seated until 7:50. The server took half the tables drink orders and never asked the other half. When we ordered dinner at 8:10, we enquired about getting drinks for the other half and she took their order. It took 1/2 hour, and 3 servers to finally get the drinks. Our entrees did not arrive until 9:00. The food was very good, minus the hair in one persons meal, which was sent back. They offered to bring another meal but it was late and the guest declined. The meal was subtracted from our bill. Even though the food was good, we will not be returning due to the service.

I've always loved eating at this restaurant. Lunch was a little off because the scampi was served with a mushroom gravy that didn't go together. I still love almost all of the food here.

Went for our anniversary. Very good food and service. One little blip, but turned out okay. Was brought an antipasto tray t we didn't order. We thought that maybe it wad part of the moral. Ate it and enjoyed it. Was a little surprised to see it on tab,but frcifef it was worth it and the overall service was very good.

I brought my wife and my mother for the special mother's day celebration. The menu was diverse enough to make everyone happy and the choices offered were excellent. Everything we ordered was excellent. The price was a little bit high for the selections offered but we all enjoyed ourselves and got enough to eat in a pleasant, elegant environment.

This is our second time here. The first time, we CHOSE to wait over one hour, at the friendly bar area, to be seated on a Saturday night. The food AND service was well worth it!!!
The second time, we made reservations, and they offered the Family Dinner style. Everything was excellent. They even paced our meal while we were waiting for our Son!
We WILL be going back-
I forgot to mention that my wife was raised on gourmet Sicilian/Italian cuisine and SHE has enjoyed everything we have ordered from Pietro’s.

Mother’s Day family style menu and service. $39 per person. Choice of salad, two apps, two pastas, two mains.

Our choice, Caesar salad, mediocre at best. No taste of either Anchovies or lemon.

Apps of fried calamari and meatballs, the latter quite good, the calamari OK but they should toss out the old pre-breaded large strips and use small calamari rings and tentacles breaded in house as do most proper Italian restaurants.

Two pastas were penne with marinara and penne with pancetta, peas, etc. both quite good and al dente.

Mains were sliced grilled steak and chicken parm. Grilled steak excellent but skimpy portion. Chicken parm OK.

Service for our party of seven was very attentive.

PS: The warm, house made seasoned round bread is better than ever, served without limit and a great touch!

Newly renovated Pietro’s is striking in its sophisticated simplicity in the Italian style. Greeting you outside are several extremely well maintained garden boxes, producing vegetables and herbs in season to be used in the dishes created. Open, airy, and well run, from front of house with a lovely cheese and hanging ham display and a small bar area, the restaurant reaches to the back for large parties and outdoor dining. Lovely. Well done, Pietro’s.

This was our first time dining at Pietro’s. Let me say it will not be our last! The food was great and service was just as awesome. A must to location while in Lodi, even when not in Lodi, it is definitely worth the drive!

Food was good. Service ok. They don’t sing Happy Birthday when you are celebrating a birthday and they charge to valet park your car when their are no parking spots available. When you are spending good money for a meal it is ridiculous that they are charging you 5.00 to valet park because their parking lot is too small.

Second time get me and again, service was awful. Food was good, compliments to the kitchen. Waiter was arrogant, belittling, sarcastic and him and another waiter attempted to take advantage of us when it came to the bill. Disappointed the owner wasn’t there. Split the bill between 6 of us. 5 of us paid cash, 1 paid debit card. They took the cash and charged the whole thing on the debit card. Ridiculous excuses when it came to fix the issue.
