A large and impromptu family gathering brought us to Pietro and Son and what a wonderful outing it was! The staff is can-do and efficient, and with only an hour’s notice, welcomed all 23 of us with open arms, adeptly serving a room of people who were constantly in motion. We were really impressed. The hostess had suggested we eat... More

We just went with our friends from Cincinnati and had the best meal. Our friend said that this was the best tomato sauce she ever had as she grew up in an Italian household it says a lot. Everything was great including service. So nice to go to an old time family Italian restaurant. You can find fancier places but... More

Traveling in NY state to ride carousels, not knowing where to eat, we try to avoid fast food franchises. I think this was about the only option for a late dinner. This is not upscale fine dining, but simple and casual describes it best. The server was really attentive, friendly and professional. My partner and I both had the special,... More

All I can say about this restaurant is that the food and service was just okay. Just your average Italian menu. Don't go here if you want ambiance. Not very comfortable seating. Servers seemed as if they were being put out. The one positive I can give this place is the pizza was decent New York Style. If you want... More

This was my 2nd time eating at Pietro's. And I can honestly say this is one of the best restaurants in Elmira if not one of the best in the county. The food does take a while to come out but it's worth the wait nobody in my family could complain about the food. Only thing I did not love... More

My husband and I had an early lunch here while in town. Great wait staff! The atmosphere is old school and not modern but we liked that. Great soup, salad and pasta. The garlic knots and bread were good as well. Enjoyed it and will come back!

We've been to Pietro & Son several times for dinner. The nightly Italian specials offer a broad choice as well as a very full menu. Their breads, sauces, and sausages are made in house. It's a very quiet local Restaurant near the Elmira College that offers very god food. Our favorite is the 4 cheese pizza and their rigatoni and... More
