I took my wife out for her birthday to Restaurant Pietro in Waskesiu for some evening dining. We enjoyed a delicious Kalamari appetizer and some fine wine before our entrees arrived. My wife raved about her chicken and I enjoyed the Daily Catch of the Day seafood special. The meal was capped off with a decadent Italian chocolate bar dessert. The hospitality and service was exceptional. Overall, a great dining experience and we're already planning our next visit!

This is an outstanding restaurant. Without a doubt it provides a level of food quality and service shared by by only a handful of restaurants in Saskatchewan. This perfect gem could stand up to any high-end restaurants in the mountain parks of Alberta and B. C. The Italian inspired offerings as well as the steak and lamb are truly outstanding. The wine selection superb. Service is polished without being stuffy. A pity it closes at the end of September; can't wait to get back when it re-opens in April It is highly recommended!

My husband and I take every opportunity to dine at Pietro during their season. The ambiance is cozy and warm, and aesthetically pleasing. The food is superb- never have been disappointed. The service is attentive and professional, yet very warm and inviting. Although a relatively small restaurant, even when it is packed- which is often- make reservations-it is quite quiet and easy to converse-something that is too often overlooked in the design of a dining establishment. I always find it difficult to decide between their featured plate of the day and my favourite entrees. Every time I have chosen the feature, I have been delighted. Gary the owner is a master of his craft of delivering an upscale dining experience, and Gary, Pietro’s Sommelier never disappoints with his wine selection and service. Kudos to the chefs, always delivering fresh, creative cuisine. If you’re in the area- don’t pass up dining at Pietro, and if you’re not- you can’t ask for a more beautiful drive and setting than Waskesiu. Take the scenic route- HWY 263.

The service and food here is always incredible. You get to have a true dining experience which makes all the difference. Surrounded by the amazing scenery outside (Boreal forest) as well as inside (beautifully designed), you will feel at home as the servers provide detailed attention to you and the Chef creates absolutely incredible tasteful dishes that will delight you so much you can’t help but lean back and smile. It is a gem up in the National Park and while it can seem pricey to the average food- goer, it really is worth it. The meals created by the Chef are so wonderfully and pridefully served you can sense the love and importance as you are a guest in their restaurant. Service is impeccable. Do yourself a favour and go smile, order everything you can, indulge in some great wine options and have an amazing experience in the heart of the Prince Albert National Park.

What a pleasant surprise find in the middle of Northern Saskatchewan at Waskesiu Lake! Pietro's was truly amazing, starting with the incredible smells when we entered the restaurant coupled with a personal greeting from the owner when we arrived, to being seated at a window table right in front of the open kitchen, to the scrumptious appetizers (to die for wild mushroom ravioli - we could eat a whole bowl of them as our entree if we had known- and calamari (pan fried rather than deep fried as per our request), followed by our entrees (spicy linguine vongole) and the special of the day, seafood cioppino stew with an incredible fresh tomato broth (we would have killed for some bread to sop up that delectable broth), and of course dessert - white chocolate creme brûlée, finished off with generous glasses of tawny port. The service was prompt, professional and friendly. The evening was capped off with an impromptu sighting of a herd of elk (with babies in tow) trotting by casually across the street. The owner quipped "I ordered them for 7 pm so they are a tad late." We can't wait to come back!

Service was great with a personal touch but the food quality, taste and presentation was outstanding. The owner came by the table to ensure all was to expectations and if we needed anything else.

Tableside Caesar Salad was excellent! I had the 10 oz sirloin with side of mushrooms which was also excellent. My wife had the Innisfail Lamb Chops which she said were the best she’s had. We’ve travelled extensively through Canada, US and Europe and confidently stated this. We had a red wine which paired well but on its own an outstanding wine (Schild Barossa Shiraz Australian).

A must visit when in Waskesui!

We were attending in a yearly conference in Waskesui and we always spend an evening at Pietro's for dinner. We look forward to it every year! The staff make all parts of the evening special - from the reservation, to entering the restaurant, to the drinks, the descriptions of the food, the amazing break sticks, the salad created at your table, the main course, and the dessert - every part of the experience is top notch! Our server engaged with us in such a charming way and took care of every need and wish we had. It felt like a family dinner and they could hardly wait for us to come so they could serve us!!!!! We will be back again next year!

We can only reiterate what other reviewers have said about Pietro's excellence! We were warmly greeted at the entrance by a co-owner and guided to our reserved table. Our dinner was exceptional! The presentations from appetizers to main dishes to dessert were spectacular and the blending of flavours appealing to the palette. All of this was served by a knowledgeable, efficient and gracious staff. In future, we will be making the 7 hour drive expressly to enjoy this restaurant.

Pietro's is an unexpected delight. They have a great wine list complete with sommelier to guide your choice. The service is excellent and the owner personally engages with tables throughout the evening. Our food was delicious, including the ravioli appetizer, the lamb and the pasta ragu. The portions are on the smaller side, but my husband and I both left satisfied. We will definitely be back.
