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.

Pietro's is our go-to place for all our special occasions! We always receive wonderful service and the food is so delicious! The patio is our favorite spot to dine as the tables are surrounded by the gardens filled with tomatoes, peppers, basil, eggplant, etc. The wine list is quite extensive and with it being Lodi...you have the best of the local wines available!

We’ve been coming to Pietro’s for many years and love it! However this last visit we made reservations at least 2 weeks in advance and ended up with a very poor table... cramped for 5 adults... sun in our eyes, (they need new blinds now that Spring/Summer is here) and the service was slow... no bread etc. we requested to change tables & once we did... which was quick ... they were accommodating.... we had great service and had a fabulous dinner.

I always love eating at Pietro's. The service and food are always excellent, plus the great selection of local Lodi wines. Eating out on the patio is beautiful as their culinary gardens surround you. Advance reservations, especially for dinner (even on weekdays) are highly recommended.

My husband and I took our twin boys who are 9 years old out for a nice dinner. The place was packed as usual but we had a reservation so only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. We sat right next to the kitchen where all the action was happening. The boys liked all of the action! They both ordered Chicken Parmesan and salad. The requested switching the sauce on the noodles to Alfredo. The waiter warned us there was going to be an up-charge for that. We agreed thinking it would be a dollar or so but it was a $3.00 up charge for both boys! I didn’t complain but felt that was a little steep. Other than that the rest of the dinner was great. Both my husband and I ordered Cioppino which we savored each and every bite! It was so good! We always really like Pietro’s because of the freshness of everything we order there. We will be back soon! Thank you.

Always good. The angel hair pomodoro is enough for two meals if you like leftovers and salad is very filling.

Our waitress, a middle-aged woman with black hair, was not very attentive. She was not around when we needed to order food and did not really check on us. She was rude when I said the pasta wasn't that good. She just asked, "Do you want me to take it then?" and sounded very rude. Our waitress was unaccommodating, but other servers seemed to be very attentive and nice. It was my parents' anniversary and took them back here because we always had good experiences at this restaurant. When you eat out, you are paying for the whole experience and our waitress pretty much ruined our special day.

We were visiting Lodi and everyone we asked about where to go to dinner said Pietro’s. Was a great dining experience in every way and we look forward to coming back here next time. Is a very popular place for locals too, so reservations are a good idea.

Always a great experience. If you are looking for a new place you can't go wrong at Pietro's. If you are already familiar with it then just go back. You won't regret it! This time I had the Eggplant Parmesan. Fabulous!!

WEDNESDAY APRIL 11: Our dining experience at Pietro's was -- as usual -- outstanding!! My guest, celebrating his birthday, had not been to Pietro's in a very long time. But now he can't stop sharing his enthusiasm with everyone we encounter. So many of the waitstaff stopped by to wish him a happy birthday, he was truly touched by their kindness and well-wishes. You, your restaurant, your food, and the staff made this a very special birthday celebration for my friend. Thank you so much.

Our visit last Friday was probably the worst visit we had at Pietro's. It was very loud and we could not hear each other over the noise level. Our waitress never came back to check on us. I was never offered another drink while my husband's iced tea was refilled several times. We had to ask another server for our check so we could leave.

We always have a great time dining here. Tonight was good but this is the first time I had a meal that was just ok. It’s my fault I didn’t say anything but I’m not the type that sends food back. I try to always be positive. I also am a very honest guy so I’m giving my honest opinion. I still would recommend this place because they do a great job!

Service is a bit rushed like they need your table for other customers. Servers are friendly young ladies but did not ask if I was happy with my meal. I had to ask for a knife for my entree and sugar for my espresso.

Food is okay and not too pricey. Small selection of wines by the glass and Italian wines are minimal. No salt or pepper on the table.

Decor is NJ diner, formica tables, no tablecloths.

We love this place! It's always bustling and welcoming. With the recent renovation the atmosphere is extra cool and contemporary. Outdoor patio is awesome when weather permits. For great Italian food and some fine red vino, it can't be beat. Nice place to show off to
out-of-town guests.
