Success! Thanks for posting your review of Pete & Sam's Italian Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

I made many jokes about Olive ...

I made many jokes about Olive Garden having the worst Italian food, and after eating at Pete & Sam's, I owe the Olive Garden an apology. Pete & Sam's is the worst. The food, the service, the facility, and the prices were all substandard. Our party sat where half the table had lighting and the other half was so dark, I had to use my cell phone to make light to read the menu. The waiter made a rude remark to ou... view more

This is not the Pete & Sams of...

This is not the Pete & Sams of Philly. This one in Memphis on Park Avenue has gone down hill over the years. I keep going back, thinking maybe it will improve but last Friday was it! Lasagna was lukewarm, hard & crunchy-my guest from Florida didnt eat but one bite. The steak was cooked correctlyl, but the baked potato was cold, & brown inside-obvioulsy sitting in the warmer for hours. Chicken Marsala-w... view more

Last Meal

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain always talks about a person's last meal and mine would definitely be Pete and Sam's Toasted Ravioli, Italian Spinach, and an entire BBQ pizza. My family has been coming to Pete and Sam's since it opened and I love this place. Go for an unforgetable family meal in the 50s era wood panneled dinning rooms on red and white checked tables or pick up a couple of pizzas from Miss Vita up fron... view more

Good Food - Terrible Service

My family went to Pete and Sam's to celebrate my father's 80th Birthday. We had a party of 30 people ( we had reservations so they knew we were coming). Unfortunately, they only had ONE server and even she was covering other tables!!!!!\r \r In her defense, she did an OK job - but food was cold - she didn't know who ordered what . She simply stood at the end of the table and screamed out the entrees that were on ... view more

The Legendary Pete & Sam's

After over half a century, Pete and Sam's is still the best. The atmosphere is refreshingly non-stuffy and perfect for a large family, the wait staff is always friendly and most importantly, the food is outstanding...time-tested recipes unchanged by trends or fads.\r \r The Veal Scallopini with a side of sausage pizza and ravioli with a fresh, crisp Italian salad is an incredible feast that I have enjoyed for year... view more

Formerly great restaurant that's run it's course

I've been eating there 40 years, but in the last 3-4 years the restaurant has diminished greatly. The food is now only fair, the kitchen is mismanged - food comes irratically to your table, often cold, and the service is non-existent. On my last visit, and I emphasize LAST visit, there were 6 of us, and every entre came at a separate time. The first entre didn't arrive until an hour after we ordered. It's sad. It ha... view more

only things i've ever eaten are their ravioli & min-pizzas, but they are heavenly! I've been eating them for a long time. I wish Atlanta had one... going here & thru the Corky's drive-thru on Poplar are the two things I do every time I vist Memphis.\r \r
