Pietro's Italian restaurant was founded in 1932 by brothers Natale and Pietro Donini. While ownership has changed hands, the recipes and traditions that the brothers created have lived on. New York City has no shortage of Italian restaurants, but Pietro's stands out from the crowd. The dedication to excellent service and cuisine is what attracts both tourists and residents.
Authentic Italian cuisine is what you will find on the extensive menu at Pietro's.
N.Y. Strip Steak
Amazing food, large portions, old school Italian
Mostly local patrons but were tourists and were treated just as nicely as everyone else. We were given perhaps the best two-top table in the house. Wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Food was well- prepared and portions were generous. We had a special beet salad and veal Marsala. Great evening.
Wonderful food & service!
We have been going to Pietro’s for over 40 years and still love it❣️My filet mignonette was cooked and seasoned to perfection❣️Whenever we feel like having steak, Pietro’s is our “go-to” restaurant❤️
Fabulous!!!! Best Shrimp Mariana, veal limone, and Caesar salad in the world. Also best NY strip I ever had.
One of my favorite restaurants!!
Pietro’s is fantastic. Food and service is top notch.
Fantastic as always!!!!!
Great to have Pietro's back in it's old school glory. Unbeatable veal parm is as good as ever.
Awesome as always
Food was amazing and service was excellent. Restaurant decor could use a facelift. Prices are high but tolerable as the food quality is excellent and the service is superlative.
Food and staff was amazing. Really good authentic Italian food.
Dining at Pietro's is a always a spectacular experience! First, the food can't be beat. Best Caesar salad in the city bar none! Italian classics and steaks to die for and gigantic portions to boot. We always start out with the Lyonnaise potatoes made fresh to munch on. To die for! So Happy they are back in full force!!!
I was very surprised about the cost of an off menu item. I would have preferred that the waiter should advised us.
Wait staff very friendly. Excellent traditional Italian food.
Food was outstanding as usual!
The wait staff was exceptionally polite and food at Pietro’s was delicious!
we went here bc we heard they did a great job inside social distancing and we were not disappointed. we ha e a grea table for 4 in the corner , everyone was well spaced snd we all felt totally comfortable, the owners were great , food was delicious and we will be back very soon . it was our friend s a first time eating indoors and although they were reluctance they were very happy with everything
Veal Parm and Ceasar Salad are Some of the best i've had
One of our fave restaurants for over 35 years! Great ownership as well as very experienced waiters and of course the food is 1st class! Always consistently very good!
Consistently delicious and great service
Had some friends visiting from Long Island, who wanted a classic Italian meal. Pietro’s never lets me down. Sautéed clams, cesar salad, chopped salad and chicken parmigiana with sautéed cherry peppers are all done extremely well! Great cocktails made by Raymond!!
Best Chicken Parm in the World!!!
Service and the food was excellent, aside from the NY Strip which was just ok. The veal parm. was outstanding and the clams casino terrific. Overall, a very solid meal.
Always a good choice. After many years still the best in the neighborhood.
Overpriced.....cocktails very expensive and wine as well. Portions not very big
Great food as always. Fun vibrant crowd. Such a great New York vibe. Love this place
The food was not great for the price point. I had the chicken Parmesan and it was over cooked and the side dish of vegetables was sting beans that seemed to have been microwaved.
Best restaurant in NY. Outstanding food and service. Chopped salad, cottage fries, broiled shrimp and steak are outstanding.
Old school but still as strong as ever. Best parm and caeser in NYC!
Perfect dinner as usual!!
The best veal in town
Friendly .. fun old New York feel
always consistent, always welcoming and superb food.
Attentive service and robust menu selections. Note: the lasagna requires 25 minute prep, so order upon arrival.
Waited for 15 minutes to be seated. Host was doing paperwork. The place wasn’t busy. Food was good. Very slow service
Friend and I went back to 'Pietro's' for lunch. It's become our "go to" place. Consistently delicious and comfortable. Located conveniently close to Grand Central Station. We shared the wonderful house salad and, not being terribly hungry, I ordered the shrimp scampi appetizer which was scrumptious and sizzling hot. Soak it all up with the delicious bread!
My wife wanted an authentic Italian meal in NYC and Pietro’s delivered. Service was exceptional and the food outstanding. Best chopped salad I’ve ever had!
Excellent food and great staff. Classic spot.
I had requested a table at the bar and it was ready when I got to the restaurant 15 minutes early immediately the waiter asked if I’d like a drink while I waited — was very attentive as I noticed with everyone.
My date came. We ordered. Food was spectacular as usual
Ambiance is sort of old school NY with a great vibe.
Best chicken parmigiana in NYC, delivered fast :)
