About Pietro's Italian Restaurant

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.

This is indeed a neighborhood gem. I love seeing vegetables and fruit growing around the restaurant and parking lot. Pietro’s provides outstanding quality Italian food. I live near Walnut Creek and will drive to Lodi for Pietro’s the food is that good. If you enjoy wine with your meal, but a single glass isn’t quite enough, but a bottle is too much, try their half liter. It might prove to be the ideal amount for a couple. If you find yourself in Lodi, you should really make a point to have a meal at Pietro’s.

We always look forward to coming at Pietros. The fresh veggies grown on site give the food exceptional quality from the salad to the main dish.
The owner is warm and congenial and takes the time to stop by the table to say hello.
Service is attentive and detail oriented.
We just keep coming back!

The food is great and the remodel is beautiful. But get there early as parking is usually a challenge. Although great year around my wife and I prefer spring and summer and sitting out back on the patio.

Except for the noise level (which is in large part due to the popularity of the restaurant), dining at Pietro's is a great experience. The wait staff is very accommodating. The food is good. The owners are almost always on site schmoozing with many of the customers.

Overall the dinner was enjoyable. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Some of them would have preferred their pasta to be more al dente.
We will definitely return again to the restaurant. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

We were driving to the Bay area from Murphy's we were looking for a place to have dinner. Pietro's came up on my smart phone. It was busy, we did not have reservations so we sat at the bar to dine. Drew the Bartender was great! Food was great too. Dessert even better! Had the best Cannoli we ever had.
Definitely will return soon Weather we are at our home in Murphy's or Concord!

As usual, Pietro’s was as expected. We were celebrating and wanted the place where the food is delicious and the atmosphere appealing. We always find it at Pietro’s. Whether we sit in the garden or inside, we are met with the comforting surroundings of brisk and efficient cooks as they work and casual diners who, like us, have become accustomed to Pietro’s ambiance and tasty menu items. To have Annette and Jim there taking care of their big fan base is always a plus. We will be back many times.

On a date that started out with a delicious Italian margarita made by the best bartender Drew.
My date had not been to Pietro's before and he enjoyed everything offered at this restaurant.
Salad with dinner, chicken Parmesan and chicken piccata were our choices. So good, plenty of food leftovers went home. We were too full for dessert. Our waiter was great and service was good too. Had reservations only a 10 minute wait. We will be back.

The new dining area is wonderful. You can see the chefs preparing the food, which is delicious. The only drawback we found last Friday night was the tables seem to be awfully small. Four people with plates and a drink took up the entire table surface.
