This place is the best on the North Shore...no need to go to North End when the portions and food will rival any place that I have been. I always say that when I eat Italian at other restaurants the food at Petrillo's is consistently better and and cheaper. I have been going there since they opened about 11 years... More

We loved Petrillo's!! We arrived on a Friday evening around 7 with no reservations for a table of 4. It took only a few minutes to be seated. The food is AMAZING. So so good! Huge portions but everything was awesome. Caprese salad and toasted ravioli apps left us wanting more. The pasta dishes were awesome. The mushroom ravioli app... More

This restaurant is an excellent choice. The meals are not only tasty but portions are decent size. The atmosphere is intimate as it is not a large restaurant I feel its just the right size. Service is good.

We had dinner here on July 4th weekend. The bread was slightly stale, but the house salad was pretty good. The restaurant is old school. Really good Italian restaurants would never have grated cheese that is left on the table in a shaker like they do at Petrillo's. The upstairs seating is depressing. Each meal was just mediocre. The staff... More

I have been there many times and the food is great! The owner and her sons are the nicest people and would definitely make it a place to try!!!

What a lucky find for us. We were a party of 3 for dinner on Sunday night. We were seated right away and drink orders were taken and a basket of bread was delivered. We started our meal with the Bruschetta. Four thick slices of toasted homemade garlic bread arrived covered with chopped tomatoes, diced mozzerella, slivers of basil and... More

Petrillo's exceeds expectations every time we dine there. Great martinis and red sauce is special. One of our mainstay restaurants in the area. Thank you.

We went to this restaurant for dinner while visiting friends in the area. Being from New York, we are very particular about what we consider good Italian food. This place did not disappoint. The menu had a very nice selection of dishes and there are also daily specials. Everything our group ordered was prepared just right, and was very tasty.... More

We have been to Petrillo's many,many times and will continue to go back. The food is ALWAYS excellent, and the service is great, especially the best bartender ever, Terry. I had my sons wedding rehearsal here a few years ago and they did an amazing job. Highly recommend it.

I visited this restaurant with my family. I had a chicken marsala. The chicken seemed a little under done. My mother-in-law had a fish dish that she didn't like. My wife enjoyed her steak tips. Service was ok. You park across a busy street in a parking lot. I guess this place is ok for a small neighborhood Italian restaurant.... More
