Welcome to

Pietro鈥檚 Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar

My goal in creating this restaurant was for me to be able to meet people, serve my old friends again, and make new friends. This restaurant is an extension of my home. Welcome to Pietro鈥檚 where you are but a customer only once.

Good afternoon to our loyal customers, friends, and family.
We decided to temporarily close and are no longer open for takeout. We are very concerned about our employees, and customers. Everyone鈥檚 safety is our highest priority.

The branzino was cocked to perfection accompanied by a perfectly balance wine sauce. The pastiera napoletana desert was Italy at its best and the homemade limoncello a real esperience for the palate. Well selected wine list on top of a cozy and romantic setting with friendly staff. A+!

What a wonderful gem along S. Tamiami. Pietro and his colleagues made our family feel like their family. The bean soup was delicious. The ravioli special was mouthwatering and the seafood risotto was amazing. The freshly baked bread was a real hit with my husband. The artful presentation of the tiramisu was a perfect ending to a delightful evening. Cosy atmosphere 路 Large wine list 路 Late-night dining 路 Great food 路 Romantic atmosphere

Had one of the best dinners here last evening! The bread was hot and crusty with a very tasty balsamic dipping oil which paired deliciously with the aged Parmesan cheese in the Caesar salad. We are very particular about our veal and we were thrilled to see it come on the bone, pounded paper thin, with the right amount of sauce and cheese and still crispy - perfection!!! The vegetarian lasagne has the exact right ratio of pasta to cheese and was reminiscent of our trips to Italy. Staff and service were welcoming, attentive and waiter suggested wine and dessert were fabulous!!! Our new go-to Italian when in Sarasota!!! Late-night dining 路 Romantic atmosphere 路 Great food

I have followed Pietro from Cafe Gabbiano to Casa Antica and now to Pietro鈥檚 Italian Restaurant. Everything he touches turns to gold! Enter the front door of the restaurant and you will be captured by a beautiful family atmosphere. The wine bar that he built is exquisite! He is a perfectionist and that shines through with his authentic Italian cuisine and selection of superior wines. Pietro and Susan will insure that your visit will a memorable one with friendly professional service!

What an enjoyable evening. I took my BFF to dinner for her birthday. She ordered the lamb and I order the Mamma Lucia veal. Both were wonderful. By surprise they brought her a delightful platter of desserts with a candle. Pietro requested we join him at the bar for a birthday drink. We met some delightful people and Pietro was pure joy. He is funny, delightful, and you can tell he treats his customers like friends. One of the best evenings I have had and looking forward to going back. This time I may treat my husband.

Fast becoming one of our favorites for a delicious meal and the opportunity for conversation. A number of restaurants in Sarasota are just loud! Pietro's is just right - convivial atmosphere but you can talk! And the food is great, as is the service.

Excellent! Nice spacing between tables, quiet environment. We do not like to go places that are noisy! Service outstanding, and of course food was delicious. Pietro himself is a gem and a real success story. He introduced himself at our table.

The staff was very attentive without being annoying. The food was excellent, the spinach soup was the best tasting, best consistency that my husband and I have ever consumed. Each of our entrees, there were four of us, was very pleasing with respect to the presentation, quality and quantity of our meals> I have already recommended Pietro's to several friends. We will return!

Birthday dinner for my BFF. What a wonderful dinner and experience at Pietro's. My friend had the lamb and I had the Mamma Lucia veal. Both were excellent. They brought out a dessert platter with 3 different desserts with candles to celebrate my friend's birthday. Delicious! Then Pietro invited us to the bar for a birthday drink. We had a wonderful time with Pietro and met another couple, Jeffrey and Nicole. It was a wonderful evening for us. The food was very good, service was excellent and Pietro treated us like old friends. Looking forward to a return.

A true gem of an Italian restaurant. Probably the best Italian restaurant in the area. Intimate atmosphere...great selection of wines. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine suggested by Pietro. The Caprese was fresh and delicious. We had a wonderful bean soup, a great seafood risotto, and a great lobster ravioli. The owner and the staff were very engaging. Would highly recommend visiting Pietro鈥檚!

Extraordinary new restaurant with varied menu. Pietro's 3rd restaurant with quite a following. Lots of choices on menu. Excellent Tiramisu. Food was served with a beautiful presentation and top notch employees. Look forward to returning to what we know will be another successful venture. A fine addition to Sarasota's dining venues. Congratulations Pietro!!!
