Stopped here while shopping in Freeport. Large menu with excellent food. The service was quick, and friendly. Little on the expensive side.

Whether you eat in or get take out, you shouldn't be disappointed if you have food from here. The service is really good, staff is friendly, respectful and responsible. Good selection from the menu.

I love the food and location. Best duck breast I've had. Staff has suffered since a couple people left. Went there only 8 people in the place. Staff saw me come in. Sat at the bar for 10 minutes and no one asked if I needed anything. They even came and delivers food and drinks to the parties on both... More

Found this little gem after patronizing a brew pub for years on the other end of town as my go to lunch stop when we drive through this town known for the LL Bean store and al the other outlet stores around it. Above average Italian fare. Decent size portions, just enough to know you had lunch and can make... More

We attended a 60th birthday party and enjoyed the staff and the meal. They were wonderful in that the catered to those of us that try and stay away from gluten. Not ny or New Haven pizza but tasty even though. Salad was incredible. Lasagna wasnt only cheese, it had meat and the sauce was very good

If you are looking for an Italian restaurant, locally sourced vegetables and meat, cooked from scratch and delicious tasting food then this is the restaurant for you. Friendly welcome, reasonably priced and the locals hang out here.

We were in the mood for pizza, so I consulted TA for what was around and we weren't disappointed (we were staying one night on a short visit to Maine). It is a small restaurant just slightly off the main road. It was busy, but as a party of two we were able to be quickly seated. The waitress was... More

Great food as always, but that isn't what stood out on our last visit. It was the professionalism shown by the staff upon dealing with an extremely rude table. We were sitting next to them and I was utterly stunned with their utter lack of respect for another human being. All over a couple of dollars. The staff handled it... More

Dominic P, Owner at Petrillo's, responded to this review

Ouch! I am sorry you feel that way. The responsibility of owner and chef is a big one. I do not think of myself as arrogant or egocentric as you described. I opened here 11 years ago and have had productive and mutually beneficial relationships with all of the hard working people I have been lucky enough to call co-workers. More
