    The food was one of the best that I’ve had in a very long time. We started with the calamari which was tender and cooked perfectly! For my main, I had the pappardelle with short ribs in vodka sauce and my wife had the truffle burrata raviolis. We split a tiramisu which was also Amazing! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves quality Italian food.

    Saw Casa de Pietro in a Tapinto Kenelworth article as the best overall restaurant in North Jersey so had to try. Im glad to say this cozy restaurant did not disappoint. Every dish is made to order by chef and owner Giuseppe who was nice enough to come to our table for a quick hello. From the calamari appetizer, to the entrees Pappardelle with braised short ribs, the Barrata ravioli, the Egg and Spinach pasta special and the Peppe Arrabiata each one prepared to perfection. We all shared our dished and everyone thought all the entrees were spot on. We finished the night with a delicious Creme Brûlée and coffee. Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning.

    This was not our first time at Casa Di Pietro and it never disappoints. I had the Swordfish over Risotto which was cooked to perfection. The couple that joined us also enjoyed their food. Casa Di Pietro is definitely on the top of my list when I want good Italian food. And it's BYOB!

    Food was excellent and so was the service. A couple of minor complaints. The tables were way too close together. I barely had room to get up to walk to the rest room. Also, my wife ordered tea after dinner. Usually fine restaurants offer an assortment of teas. They just gave her a Lipton tea bag, which turned her off.

    Food was delicious. Recommend half orders on pasta. Waiter encouraged the whole size and it was like a pound of pasta! Tables are close enough to hear conversation at next table but noise was not oppressive. Everyone was very nice on the staff and attentive. Parking is an issue. There is a lot up the street but it was full. After circling a few times we parked a few streets away.

    Casa Di Pietro did not disappoint. My best friend told me to try this place and I finally had a chance. What a delight from the moment you walk through the door. I had the most pleasant waitress. I ordered the pork chop and oh my GOD it was melt in your mouth good. My husband had the veal parm. which was excellent also. We had calamari for an appetizer...delicious. This is now my new go to. Take a bottle of wine and sit down and be delighted!

    Used to love this place!! Food and service is always awesome. Tonight, not so much, 8:00 pm reservation, sat on time. Tables around us were empty, we ordered our apps and dinner. Table to the left of us (2) and table to the right (6) got seated after us. Table to the left gets their apps, we are still waiting…. Our apps come, kinda cold.. 9:00 pm comes and goes, still no dinner. 9:10, table to the left (who got there 1/2 hour after us) gets their meal. Waiter goes to the table to the right with a plate and apologized for the delay and gave them a free appetizer for their wait, still no food…. Oh, btw, while waiting for our food, tried booking a 30 person confirmation party, was told to wait ‘till after dinner to discuss it.. Dinner finally comes… food was decent , but way too late. Ask for our check, and the leeching manager is stalking us, trying to book our party….. yup, no way…… I know you know who I am…. Fix it.

    We have dined here often and brought many friends and family with us. The food was always good but this particular Thursday was the exception. It was disappointing. We shared our concerns with the manager via a phone conversation. Hopefully the missteps will be corrected. We plan to wait a while before we return.

    A wonderful evening and the service and food could not have been better. Our guests were first timers and they were very impressed with the restaurant, There were many gluten free options which made them extremely happy. My one guest wanted to try my pork chop, which she really enjoyed. This may be an option for her next visit. We are loyal patrons, and constantly bring new guests. So I know that CDP just gained two more future patrons.
