Tim was an excellent server!!! We wanted to try everything but he was able to help us narrow down some amazing choices. We can’t thank you enough Tim!
Had the meatballs, very tasty, could only eat one, enough for lunch the next day. The ambiance is great, sat outside, nice patio. The staff is great, really take care of you. Will be back.
Food and service was wonderful. A great addition
to Old Town. Valet parking on Friday & Saturday.
Everything was amazing and we had great service! We loved the music but it was a little loud when trying to chat at dinner. That’s the only thing I would change!
Food and service was excellent. I'll be glad when dining is back indoors.
So glad we found this gem. We ended up going two nights in a row
We love Trattoria Don Pietro for it's delicious and authentic Sicilian food, and the fantastic service and servers, hostess, bussers, food runners. They are all so friendly and they are like family to each other and to us as well. The owners are fantastic and always looking out for their customers and staff. We go there every Sunday evening and love the place!
Great food, awesome service! Loved it! I also really loved the effort put in for my birthday. Will definitely be back!
The service and food at Don Pietro are superb. We had the brussels sprouts and the beet salad appetizers. Each was well prepared and seasoned well.
Our pasta entrees of penne in pistachio cream and tortellini with pesto were perfectly prepared. The pasta was fresh and the sauces were creamy and delicious. The salmon was also quite delicious.
The music is good, though it is played really, really loud, and it was difficult to hear conversation with others at the table.
The food and drinks were delicious. The service provided was one of the best I’ve ever experienced at a restaurant. Definitely will be going back!
Great Time Superb Location We Will Definitely Be Back Food And Service Is Phenomenal
The ambiance is energetic and the food, beyond fantastic!! Try the bread pudding...even if you think you don’t like bread pudding, you’ll LOVE this one.
This place is a vibe and is the perfect place to enjoy yourself and have an amazing meal.
So tasty! Great new
Great food, services and atmosphere! Sangria was delicious too. Will definitely return soon.
The food was FANTASTIC!! Fried calamari had the perfect amount of crunch, the arancini was devoured, the fig ravioli, seafood linguini, and rib eye...gone in a flash! We wiped our plates clean! We topped off our meal with a bread pudding which three of us split. Won’t do that again....we’re each going to get our own! We’re looking forward to going back soon.
Food and service was exceptional! Best lasagna I’ve ever eaten! Deserts were spectacular!
Great food! Pork Chop is spectacular!
Went there for our anniversary and it was awesome 👌thz u will be back!!
Great food. Excellent service. Terrific experience!
Nothing about this place is Italian. Lox is not the same as salmon carpaccio. If you ask for parmesan they give you a to-go plastic cup... even though you are dining there. The sauce in my pasta was congealing by the time it got to me. Loud club music. It feels like it’s run by a group of kids. The food was overpriced and below average. Very disappointing.
I was very impressed with our waiter, He gave good recommendations to the wine and food. I would definitely go again!!
LOVED the outdoor patio table with built in heaters. Great sea bass and yummy salads!
The food was spectacular and the wait staff were very attentive and knowledgeable.
The service and food was excellent.
The peeps here could not have been any more accommodating! Food, music, atmosphere was spot on! Can’t wait to go back!
Second time here. Authentic italian dishes, paired with friendly service on a great street... value all the way.. lovely experience.
Our anniversary was well spent having dinner there. The server treated us so special and the food was outstanding. Can’t wait to go back!
Love coming here. Excited for them to get their liquor license. The service and care is always top notch!
The food at Trattoria Don Pietro is delicious. The first time I went I had a short rib with risotto, absolutely scrumptious. I visited again and did not see it on the menu, I was a little disappointed but decided to ask our waiter if they had it, they did!! They did not disappoint, cooked perfectly and served over their delicious risotto. I will certainly visit again. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Kudos to the chef and the entire staff.
Waitress was beyond sweet and their Sangria was one of the best I’ve had.
Delicious - we all tried something different on the menu to get a taste of the various dishes. The owner came out to great our table - what great service, we will definitely be back!
It was Valentine’s Day, so very busy for the restaurant industry. On top of that, restaurants had just opened in California due to Covid restrictions. We were visiting at the last minute from Nevada, and so we could not get a reservation at any restaurant that we were familiar with. We finally got one at Don Pietro ‘s. I had never heard of it before, but we took a chance and we were so glad we did! We were sat promptly, in the section that we had requested. Nice! Service was outstanding. Very prompt and courteous. The owner even came over to our table and asked if everything was OK, and we had a lovely conversation with him.
And the food (which is what you come here for, right?) the food was just wonderful! The sea bass was the best I have ever had, and I have eaten a lot of seafood in my life. The braised short ribs were divine, as was the lobster ravioli. Cocktails and desserts were also outstanding. The only drawback our party could even think of was that there was no kind of bread served with the meals. Maybe we overlooked some we could have ordered? Anyway, our party agreed we will come back here and eat the next time we are in the San Diego area. It was really, really good.
Best dining and customer service by far!
My boyfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day. The food was so good, we had the arugula and buratta salad. For dinner I had the pistachio cream sauce spaghetti, 10/10. It’s a vibey atmosphere! I really enjoyed it.
Besides running out of soop At 6:00 p.m. On Valentine's Day we were served burned aranchini. We also ordered some gin specialty drink only to find out ther was no gin as they only have a beet and wine lisence. Then our wedge salad we asked to split arrived unsplit and with ni dressing. 20 minutes later we finialy see our waiter and ask for a side of blue cheese dressing and he replies we dont have blue cheese dressing. Of course he was mistaken. Well that was it we opted not to order a main course and will not be back. Busalacci's you should be ashamed
We booked reservations for the patio for date night. We arrived 10 minutes early and waited around 25 minutes to be sat although there were plenty of open tables. When we addressed it with the hostess she very rudely sat us inside next to the kitchen. There were no other tables in use inside, we were the only ones inside and the ambience just didn't feel right. We asked if we could sit outside instead and the hostess very rudely moved us extremely close to another couple when there were plenty of other open tables. The other couple and ourselves were put off about this. We ended up having our food packed to go and went and ate at a different restaurant. I feel they may have had good food but their service was just horrible.
You don't want to get me started about the F** service at this place ...No I'm just kidding. The service was great and the waiter always came back to check if we needed anything else even though it was busy. The food oh man the food was delicious and the bread pudding. Try the bread pudding just do it
Food was cold, took forever, wine tasted like it was spoiled.
Fast to seat us slow to wait on us. Waiter seemed new. Music so loud he couldn’t hear us and vise versa. Portions small for price. Calamari was lacking & Wedge salad fed 2. Had to ask for salad plates. Pesto Tortellini was great. Small enough portion to clear the plate. Gnocchi was good. Not great. Pasta and short rib sauce was tasty tho. Had to ask 3x for bread with pasta (never received) and 2x for check. Finally walked up to counter to pay. Never was offered dessert menu which we would have ordered for my birthday. It was a busy Valentine weekend so will give them that however there should be runners for water & drink service and more table checks for the customer service aspect. I would possibly try again on a non busy weekend. Venue was super cool and vibe was great however service was off.
