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.

    Service was good, kind of. Waiter and service team was attentive. Our third party member ordered Ziti and Shrimp scampi as an appetizer. He never received the Ziti and Scampi was served as the main dish and the price was doubled to $50. Worst shrimp scampi I’ve ever had. The food overall was pretty terrible. Olive Garden is better honestly. Will never recommend this establishment. Terrible.

    Great service as always. Best Caesar salad and garlic bread in the city. Love the meat ravioli, which is not easy to find in Manhattan. Great old school dining experience,

    Great place for homestyle, traditional Italian food. Lively atmosphere, friendly staff and family environment. Meals are not rushed and lingering conversation is allowed. Fun place for family gatherings, small parties and special events. A neighborhood gem!

    Whenever we want a great meal we head to Pietro's. And we are never disappointed. The service is great, portions humongous, and good incredibly delectable. Everyone that we bring there has a great time and wants to come back. Super news that brother Bill is back after a long hiatus to help brother David back. This dynamic duo along with their dad Bill makes Pietro's the special place that it is.

    Traditional Italian cuisine in a cozy atmosphere. The waitstaff were outstanding, attentive but not intrusive. Our party had the veal parmigiana, which was excellent, and the shrimp scampi, which was very good but also was prepared somewhat uniquely so if you are ordering that dish I would suggest asking for the details of how it is prepared. We split the chopped salad for an appetizer and it was outstanding. Generous portions left us no room for dessert which was unfortunate since the dessert menu looked great!

    My husband’s chicken dish was dry and overcooked. Even the mushrooms were crunchy. My pasta was mushy and the red sauce was poorly seasoned. The Caesar salad was the bomb! It was the only reason I gave as many stars as I did in the review. I was disappointed in the chicken Parmesan which I was told was the best in the city. It was overcooked and tough. They did not take my husband’s dish off the bill even when he complained about it and hardly touched it. They did give me a free dessert only after my husband ordered one for himself. Will not be back. Too many other Italian restaurants in NY with great food😞

    Pietro's is a comfy old world restaurant that I enjoy visiting several times a year. While the food (particularly seafood and pastas) is still good; and the Martinis are all right, the food is not as terrific as it used to be, and the prices are higher. Service is all right, but nothing special. The atmosphere is in a word: tired. I don't know if this is due at all to Covid, and inflation, but all in all, I could not give a higher rating. I still like this restaurant and a group of us still come here for lunch quarterly, but I don't think of it as a "go to" at other times. I give Pietro's a positive recommendation with the caveats stated here.

    Service was poor. It took us asking 5 waiters for olive oil till someone finally brought it! Ordered Caesar salads and again needed to ask 3 waiters before we could get fresh pepper. The waiters kind of drop and run and then ignore you if need something. Food was only ok for the price.

    This place has been around for decades delivering a quality experience without pretension. There is a general joy one feels in the room and the food is more a staple of quality and old world ambiance than pretending flamboyance. It is a place one can go several times a month and not get bored.
