Pietro's Restaurant Garden
Many of the ingredients they use come from the gardens outside the restaurant. It’s fun to browse the raised beds to see eggplant, basil, zucchini, tomatoes, lemons, and other vegetables growing.

My wife and I have eaten at Pietro’s Italian Restaurant numerous times. We have never been disappointed. Favorites include their signature dish, Nettie’s Homemade Ravioli with meat sauce. The Veal Scaloppini is deliciously sauteed with mushrooms, fresh marinara sauce, and wine.

Chicken Picatta - Pietros
My wife’s “go-to” dish is the Penne al Pietro, which is prawns, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and broccoli sauteed in garlic. We both love the Chicken Picata. This dish is sauteed chicken with garlic and capers in a lemon wine sauce. There’s so many incredible choices!

The New York Steak Sandwich is the thickest, largest, most flavorful steak sandwich I’ve ever had. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Everything is accompanied with incredible buttery ciabatta bread. Save room for dessert so you can enjoy the Cannoli. This is an Italian style crepe filled with fresh hand-packed ricotta cheese, chocolate chips, and pistachios. End the meal with an after-dinner drink.

Patio at Pietro's Trattoria
Dine outside on the patio if the weather permits. It’s very cozy and relaxing sitting outside surrounded by gardens. Pierto’s is a popular restaurant for both locals and tourists. An increasing number of people visit Lodi to go wine tasting at the many Lodi wineries nearby. Reservations are recommended; especially on the weekends.
