Daughter's birthday. Disappointed that they would not give her free meal or dessert, which the waitress said they would if she had her birth certificate with her. Didn't know that would be necessary for a child. Kind of ridiculous when our family of 5 ordered a lot of food to celebrate.

We came into town for an anniversary celebration and had trouble finding reservations downtown. We ended up at Pietro's and were highly disappointed. The food was bland and the restaurant was dark and dated. The server wore her mask around her chin instead of covering her mouth and nose. We would have reported this to the manager except that she was making fun of the mask mandate to another table nearby, removing her mask to speak. Terribly unprofessional. Whether or not you believe the science that says masks are necessary to prevent the spread of Covid-19, it's completely irresponsible as a restaurant not to adhere to the guidelines.

My lasagna was mediocre, at best. The sauce tasted as if it came out of a jar. My partner would have preferred spaghetti with meat sauce. Not available, and the portion was rather small compared to other Italian restaurants in which we have eaten. The salad was an extra charge. All in all, just an average experience.

Aslen did a great job, and the food and value were wonderful. We sat outside, and that was a nice bonus because of the beautiful weather and solitude.

We have been regular, satisfied customers. This visit was not good, however. My food was fine, but my wife had two problems. Her salmon was still raw in the middle. And when the replacement arrived, the top came off the salt grinder and ruined her plate. The salmon replacement was satisfactory. But the waitress only apologized for the faulty salt grinder and did nothing to compensate for it. She should have notified a superior and we should have been offered some sort of discount or replacement or a free dessert. Nothing. Not a good experience on Valentine's Day. It will be awhile before we return.

Food has been better here. Margherita pizza had a bit too much balsamic vinaigrette. Mushroom caps were a bit bland but Manicotti was delicious! But we’ve always enjoyed this Grand Rapids mainstay and will go back!

We made our reservation in the morning, for a 5:45 pm dinner, with a request for a booth. Right at 5:45, we were seated at a table just outside the kitchen traffic area, and asked the host if we could be seated at a booth as requested. There were 6 open booths within view of our table (all within a few feet on each side of us). She said not unless we wanted to wait awhile, and since we had a Broadway show to attend, we could not seat later due to the time factor to get downtown. We pointed out there were several booths open, but she said "sorry, they are for others". During the next 20 minutes or so, we watched people coming in after us being seated in the booths. Our server even asked if we could move to a booth, and was told no as well.

We were a bit surprised by this, and had it not been for the waitress we had, we would probably have never come back. Kristin was so nice, and such a good server, that she "saved the night" so to speak . She went above and beyond and the food was spectacular as well.

Your company is lucky to have servers like Kristen. She is quite an asset!

My associate and I were hosting 4 customers for a casual business dinner. Everything from food to atmosphere was outstanding. Salad ingredients were fresh and the dressings were tasty, but not heavy. Several of us had the Chicken Parm. All agreed the portions were just right and the flavor and texture was spot on. We started with the house Cab which everyone liked then moved to the Rodney Strong Reserve Cab out of Sonoma. It was fabulous!
After dinner we had a great conversation with Tim, the owner. It is so refreshing to dine at a family owned restaurant where the owners are available and engaging. Great job Pietro's!

Foods always good and so was the service. It was a week night but for some reason it was crowded with lots of family tables with young children. The arrangement which is booths on the sides and large tables between means your always next to a noisy table under those circumstances. Best to choose a less busy night.
