Welcomed even though no reservations. Had daily special of Lobster Bisque which was wonderful - very rich. Enjoyed a very generous plate of calamari with tomato-y sauce. Had handmade garlic gnocchi - lovely. Dessert was cannoli - just perfect. Asked for Bailey's and decaf coffee - came in glass mug with whipped cream (unexpected treat!)

All 3 of our dinners were delicious. Server had great sense of humor too! Home made pasta is perfect. Drinks in the bar first with crispy wings were perfect starter.

What I read in the Watertown Daily Times that Pete's got a perfect 10/10, I was surprised.... it was always good, but I never saw it as "great." So I went back recently... yup, 10/10.... Amazing Italian fare... to this day, their eggplant parm is the best I've ever had... my sister had her wedding rehearsal dinner there, and even... More

Wow - if you're looking for a special night out or a nice venue for a group get-together, this is it for Watertown. I have enjoyed every dish I have tried - especially the truffle fries. :) Army wives - this is a great go-to for company visiting or a Coffee Group. :)

We made a Saturday night reservation and were seated immediately. A bus person offered us water and then we sat waiting for someone to come by for a drink order after at minimum ten minutes. I finally flagged down a waitress at another table. Once she was aware of our poor service up to that point, everything worked out fine.... More

We got into town late after a harrowing drive through lake-effect snow. The woman at the front desk at our hote recommended Pete's. We got there at about 8:30 and there was a sign on the restaurant door saying it was fully committed but that people could dine in the bar. So we found a table in the bar, which... More

Not sure how this restaurant is rated number #1 in Watertown, Maybe it was an off night but truthfully excellent restaurants don't have off nights they are consistent. When we arrived, there were only a few other tables occupied so as I see it no reason for the slow service we received. Then the food was mediocre at best, the... More

My girlfriend and I had heard about how great Pete's is many times. Well they were right, the food and service was outstanding by far the best in Watertown. If you haven't been there, then get there !!

Went for a family meal with my dad on his 81st birthday. I ordered pizza and the encrusted mozz for an appetizer. While eating the mozz, which very good, my waitress informed me there was a small electrical fire and pizza is not available. Bummer. Otherwise, my parents enjoyed their meals but thought the lasagna was a bit pricey. Nothing... More
