best italian food in the area and also very friendly and personable service. New owners are very nice and do not give long speaches on how to eat pizza!!! – I have been a waitress at pietros for almost 8 years. We recently changed owners and the Mannino Family are very nice people. Nino and his wife Josephine have had the rest. for about almost 2 years now. Please consider stopping down and trying it out, i guarantee you will not be disappointed. Ask for jennifer she will give exellent service and you will enjoy your meal. They serve complimentray bread and salads are included with your meal. Stop down and give it a try or a re-try.
Excellent lunch time stop – Pietro's is a perfect lunch time stop. Every time I am in the area this is where I go for lunch. The food is very good classic Italian. You also get excellent value for your money! The last time I was there I got the sausage roll for $3.75 and couldn't finish it. They serve complimentary bread and rolls with a simple but delicious dipping oil. There garlic knotts are a must have and they always have a daily special. I would agree that the wait staff were a little bit aloof. Not much personality and they only speak to you when they absolutely have to.
Greatest Pizza in the Area – This restaurant has some of the best pizza at affordable prices in the area. I have held Christmas parties there for the past 2 years; many of the times Pietro (the owner) came out and served us the pizza himself always with a good nature. I would recommend this restuarant highly.
good food, rude staff – I might get take-out from this place, but I would never, ever eat in the restaurant again. The wait staff is incredibly rude, and the owner actually had the nerve to come to our table and give us a 10 minute lecture on the proper way to eat pizza when he didn't like the way we were eating it! (we use a fork when it is too hot for pete's sake) Several of my friends have reported similar experiences while eating there. I didn't believe them until I experienced it for myself. Just unbelievable!
On a positive note, the food is pretty good.
