When we visit our second home in florida,before and directly after, my wife and I make reservations for dinner at the House. Over a forty plus year span of dining at the House we have never had a disappointing culinary experience. The owner, Mark Petillo, is the host at the bar welcoming you "Home". After visting the restaurant one time,... More

This place is down the road and we've always wanted to go, we received a gift card for $50 so we made a reservation and went! Once we arrived we were seated in the bar with country music playing. Asked to be re seated to the downstairs dining area where there was plenty of room...received packaged crackers with a cup... More

Provides an excellent dinner selection with specials most evenings. Large and delicious portions are the rule with a bar selection beyond compare. A very clean facility with upper and lower dining areas, both having working fireplaces most welcomed during Western NY winters. Reminicent of "Cheers", it seems everybody knows your name after several visits and the owner/ bartender even remembers... More

Two friends and I enjoyed a great meal along with excellent service extended to us by our server Brandi. The red sweet pepper sauce is delicious! We will not only return but we will be sure to let our family and friends know about this restaurant. The dining area is quaint and comfortable.

I would have given this restaurant a better rating if they had better service. The food was good. The decor interesting and dust free. Our server was rude and snippy. I think her name was Brenda. At first our experience was good. One of the servers greeted us and asked if we were with the birthday party upstairs. We said... More

When we first got there, I was a little thrown by the decor. It definitely says more "German Bier Haus" than Italian restaurant with all the beer steins and crests everywhere. It is DEFINITELY outdated. That said, all the decor didn't seem to be dusty, so at least they keep it clean? This place could seriously use an update though... More

Petillos offers fine dining in a casual atmosphere and makes you feel special the entire time. Great food and service and Mark the bartender /owner is great! This is a special evening out for a couple or friends! All the food is good but I especially love the clams as an appetizer!

Went with a group if friends. It took a while to get drinks & menus but the food was outstanding. We all loved our meals and everyone had desert (which was a first for our group) they were all homemade pies and were fantastic. We will try to make it back before the and if the year.
