My family loves to order pizza and antipasto salad when we visit my mom in San Gabriel. A little pricey for pizza but well worth it. They also offer other Italian dishes but my family can't look past the pizza because it's that good!

I've never dined in at Mama Petrillo's, but I really want to one day. It looks really quaint from the outside and it's very cozy looking. Some friends brought over a takeout pizza and it was REALLY good. Fantastic pizza! I think we had the canadian bacon and pineapple, a combination I usually skip but it was really good. We finished almost the entire pizza because we couldn't stop eating it. Mmmmm. I definitely recommend their pizzas, and I can't wait to try their other entrees eventually.

Not only is the pizza the best, but everything on the menu. Veal Parmisagna, Lasagna....all are fabulous. Small restaurant with good service. Busy on weekends!

I went to this restaurant based on a friend's recommendation and I was not disappointed. The pizza we ordered was huge, loaded with toppings, and simply delicious. I also order their lentil soup which was okay.The only draw back that I saw was that the decor looked a little tired, in need of updating. It also needed a few more lights to make the place a little brighter. Overall, the food was good and the cost was reasonable.

PROS: Amazing Pizza
CONS: Not the best looking restaurant

There isnt anything that I have ordered here that I didnt like. The pizzas probably the best, although a little expensive as far as pizza goes but worth every sent, its to die for! Service is fast and friendly. Not alot of parking so a weekend night things are a little busy.

I didnt really care for pizza before I came here. I maybe ate it once a year. Now I find myself wanting Mama Patrillos pizza at least once a week. They use one of a kind ingrediants on their pizza (for example canned mushrooms - mmm!) They have an italian salad thats to die for! And since the food is sooo amazing it makes it worth having to pick up since they dont deliver.

Peeps...if you're hankering for heaven in a bowl, don't wait, get over to have Mama Petrillo's tomato and cucumber salad. A sublime mix of tomato and cucumber chunks, some red onion slivers, and a good heaping of Mama Petrillo's own dressing--a mixture of canola oil, red wine vinegar, cheese, and spices.

I've been back in Massahusetts now for several years, and my sister has, thankfully, sent me a few bottles of dressing, but it's never enough! And it's definitely not the same as being in the real restaurant, eating the salad as the kitchen staff has prepared it!

The salad is seasonal, so make sure you ask if they're serving it. It's sized as an entree, so you might not need anything to accompany it, but spaghetti with marinara sauce would be all you need to reach nirvana.

This place is above average but is really overrated. I think it has a catchy name which helps and has the name petrillos and people might think it is related to the famous petrillos pizza. I dont like some of the toppings. whenever I get peppers they seem bagged and not fresh.I think the mushrooms are watery and possibly canned. I havent had it in a few years but i remember it was kinda extra salty. A couple of my brothers like it but when I get pizza I want top notch. Maybe I'll give it another try. I had the pizza again recently. I stayed away from the bellpeppers and canned mushrooms and it was actually better than I thopught it would be. I guess if you eat at the one in La verne they offer fresh mushrooms I was told. Still not the best but not bad either.

Pros: i dont know

Cons: little salty squares

This mainstay on Las Tunas is consistently good for Italian and Italian - American cuisine. My personal favorite is their pizza, but also good is their chicken cacciatore and lasagna with meatballs. Try their salad with their special dressing and see if your tastebuds don't go wild.

My family has been going to Mama Petrillo's since 1960. It has a great pizza pie, that is indisputable. Great pizza sauce, great pizza dough.

I dont know what ravine I'm talking about... but having lived in NY, and Chicago and had pizza from the top notch places in both cities, I'm still fond of Mama Petrillos. Now I've been to the Petrillos on Valley, and I just am not as much a fan of their food as I am of Mama petrillos. Especially given that you can actually hear your partners at MAMA petrillos, and its easier to park there. GREAT for takeout. I love their tiny round peperoni that gets all crispy under the oven. The only thing I would change is the mushrooms. I love mushroom pizza but HATE that New york style pizza has mushrooms from a can. unfortunately, I think mama petrillos is emulating them.. and the mushrooms are not your typical fresh bellas or button mushrooms... But everything else is great. Try their salad dressing too. I have it shipped out to my friends cause they all love it from when I bring them here.

Pros: Pizza, Meatballs, Service

Cons: Its small so if its a busy night you might have to wait 15 minutes... and the waiting area isn't that big.
