When I think "pizzeria", I usually don't think alcohol. It makes sense that they have a fully-stocked bar, since that gives a customer one less reason to stray to a nearby bar. I wasn't expecting much from this restaurant, but was pleasantly surprised. (This place doesn't make me want to bitch slap people, like the Spaghetti Warehouse does.) A bunch of us had dinner here to celebrate a friend's birthday. It took a little time to get seated (it was crowded and we were waiting for folks to arrive) but that gave me time to do shots with a new friend at the front bar. Turns out we met somewhere before, but I digress. Pietro's serves large Italian family-style dishes. We shared quite a few, and I enjoyed the mussels, calamari, and DEFINITELY the spaghetti and meatballs. Good cooking, a pleasant atmosphere, and efficient service (we had a hilarious and slightly flirty server, and let's not forget the bartenders) make Pietro's a fun spot worth trying.

DINE ABOUT TOWN 2007 (2/3) Admittedly, not the best dine about town choice I've ever made. The place is more about the scene and vibe than the food. Eating dinner while chilling on velvet pillows is kinda cool, but it doesn't make up for the extremely mediocre entrees. The appetizers and soup were nice, and the sushi looked pretty decent (although overpriced). I could see going here for drinks and appetizers before hitting the club upstairs. Not a great choice for a full dinner though.
