Growing up in Riverside we ate pizza from Pietros every Friday night! It was perfect. However, when the management changed during the years that the previous negative comments were made, we became very disappointed and stopped our tradition. Since 2009 we have begun our Pietros pizza tradition again! We are not sure what caused this change for the better but the pizza is back up to the fresh quality it once was and the service is never less than enthusiastic, friendly and accommodating. It is a great place to take the family and have some fun. For those previously disappointed, as we once were, I recommend trying it again...I'm on my way now!
The bread they use here is what a real italian sub is suppose to be made out of. Not that real soft bread that the commercial places use. The outside of the bread should be crunchy, while the inside is softer. Also their spaghetti sauce is nice and simple without that nasty acid taste. No sugar needed here. Meatballs are like my Nana use to make. Garlic Bread is excellent, especially if you ask them to make it a little bit crunchier. I love this place! There is only one problem. Antones closes to early. I wish they would stay open until 6:00 at least.
Although this place is always short handed with help they still are very friendly and serve delicious food. My family has been going to Pietro's for YEARS! We always hold our family parties and gatherings there and their service is always A++. It's always best to give them notice if you are planning to have a large party so your party will not be waiting for their food and they can be prepared with additional help. With my family they always expect a party of 35 and they have not failed us once. Thank You Pietro's!
