We placed an order over the phone on a Friday night during Lent, and the lady repeated it for confirmation. We ordered "ravioli with mushroom with herbs & marsala sauce" ~ but when we got home they gave us ravioli covered with greasy oily

My entire life, that's how long my family had been buying pizza here. Most of that life I have spent telling everyone I have ever had a conversation about pizza with, that it was the best. Then in 2005 I went to Chicago. Where, I found a pizza that was just a little bit better, as you would on a road trip. Of course living out here I stayed with the number one in my opinion, Petrillo's. Out of my adult life, I've never had a complaint till today. Once they messed up making my order, and gave me both pizzas, but I didn't know, they told me. Now, that was customer service.

Yesterday I ordered a pizza, as usual a specialty jumbo. As we were getting to the end of the pizza one of my friends claimed he found a hair in the pizza. I told him he was full of sht. Today as I was eating the left overs, twice I pulled hair out of my mouth. Currently, I can still feel it as if it was still there. I called, then hung up on four times. They said they were having problems with their phone service. I let that go. When I arrived and told them my problem, I was told that I should have called last night. They asked to see the hair. Now, why would I keep the hair? I tossed it in the trash. They asked how much off the pizza was left, I told them 3 slices. I was told that they couldn't comp a pizza because I ate all but three slices. I never asked to be comp'd. These words put forth as if I wanted to be comp'd. All I wanted was an apology. So, I went home. Pulled the hair from the garbage put it in a plastic zip lock bag. And brought the left over pizza. I was told that they wouldn't comp a pizza, in front of customers. Still I didn't ask to be comp'd. I waited and wanted an apology, and to be told they would work harder to see that it didn't happen again. It's all I wanted. So, as I walked out, I told them they could have their left over pizza back and launched it against the wall as I walked out. Fck you guys, and your presumption/assumption that I wanted to be comp'd another pizza. Fck you guys, who couldn't just give a humble apology. Most of all, fck you guys for calling that big muscle bound assfck freak of nature out, to deal with me, because that fcktard wasn't intimidating in the least. You guys were 5* in my book. Now you're just 4*... Remember my name, write it down, screenshot it. Remember my face, print it out. Save the surveillance video of me. Still can't believe I couldn't get a simple apology. The assumptions run deep in that motherfcker.

Right to the point - Service was nice, smile is important. Didn't wait for too long and prices are in my range. I really had a good decent meal. It maybe counts as a fast food. But I don't care :). Thanks for the great meal experience.

The girls helping are the worst I have ever experienced. I have been coming here for years and lately my time going there has dwindled. I dont even bother anymore with ordering pizza there. Why should I order pizza from someone who own

The pizza is good (though not as good as it used to be about 15 yrs ago!) but the customer service is absolutely the worst! Honestly, I'd have to say the "workers" (that's using the word generously) @ the counter have no business being in a position of dealing with the public. The service, or lack thereof, is what's kept me away from this place. The pizza would have to be to out of this world fantastic to deal with this group of nasty individuals, and sadly it's not.

This is the best pizza that I've had so far in so. cal. good high quality everything. Awesome stringy cheese and a medium is like eating a large. Waiters are ok but have had a few incidents with the take out service and the hostess keeping me on hold for 11 minutes when all i wanted to ask is what time they close. Or another time when we stood there in front of her for over 10 minutes with open seating available and was never told just a minute or anything. I think we were ignored because closing time was coming soon. We walked out that night. They now charge for bread if you get more than one basket and most of the customer service is consistently not over-friendly. still the best pizza though.

Outside of Chicago, Petrillo's is my favorite, Yes the service is terrible but the pizza is great! I work in the service industry and I understand those of you who are frustrated with their service. However, their service does not reflect the product. When I go to the restaurant I understand that the wait is long and I am patient but assertive with the staff therefore I never have any problems. Stop whining and just appreciate their food.....PERIOD.

I've been a long time patron and will probably continue to be (take out). It's not the pizza I'm complaining that needs re-tooling, it's the SERVICE. One word:LOUSY. After ordering waits are long and painful as one has to request everything upfront or you will be forgotten. The owners NEED to reciprocate the loyalty by spending some effort on hiring more staff or doing a staff overhaul. Maybe then tips would be bigger and the experience wouldn't be bittersweet.

The antipasto salad is the best around. I have seen their large square pizza reduce in size over the years. I lived in the San Gabriel Valley 10-15 years ago and that was the only pizza place we went to. The antipasto salad, with the cubed cheese was the best. I was in the neighborhood recently and went by around 10 p.m. on a Saturday night, went into the take-out side, ordered waited 10-15 minutes and had the best pepperoni pizza in years. The pepperoni were crunchy on top, just the way I remember. Still a great pizza place.

we have been going to Petrillow for over 43 years, we were dating when we were going there. We still return there even though it is a hour and a half away. Sunday we went to the one in Glendora which we do because it is a little closer to us. First of all we are informed that they no longer will carry the blush or white zin by the carafe, will just carry the dryer wines by the glass or bottle. I am not a dry wine person so I was not happy. But they had a little left over so we did get the blush. But the next time I guess we are out of luck. But when we received out pizza , we ordered a medium, there wasn't as much of a topping as ussual especiallt cheese. We didn't have as much left over as we usually do and it was put in a flimsy box to take home. We were VERY DISAPPOINTED with the pizza. We will try the one in So. San Gabriel and if it is the same, sadly to say we will not ever go back and we will never brag about the best pizza we have ever had nor will we ever reccommend it to anyone. And what a shame after all these years. And the owner will know how long we go back because we were going there when Shirley worked there and they had Royal Host ruby port and he said he was a bus boy when we were going there. Sadly disappointed. And I loved the pizza. Linda Lotter

I used to live in Cali about 15 minutes from Petrillo's and have it at least once a week. Now I'm in Sin City, but every trip to Cali includes at least one trip to Petrillo's. It's the best pizza I've ever tasted. If you get a chance, you've gotta try it.

I just picked up my order from Petrillo's this evening and all I can say is I'm never going back to Domino's and the likes. I didn't know there was such a good pizza joint in the San Gabriel Valley. The cheese and toppings on their special are amazing.

I have had dined all over the US and this is by far my favorite pizza restaurant. Unfortunatly, someone left a scathing review. I have found the service to be very good. If I I was displeased , I would not resort to childish name calling. By resorting to such immature behavior you have proven that you are an unresonable person. This is a small business with a limited amount of staff. It is difficult to serve a large group even in in the finest restaurants. If a reservation is for 34 people, you are holding about half the tables in the little establishment from people waiting dine. Those patrons are no doubt pressing the hostess to be seated as well. I suggest people try Petrillo's for themselves and enjoy the best pizza ever.

In 1975 my wife and I left California to become residents of Alaska. I can truly say that the only thing we miss about SoCal are the great pizzas we used to get at Petrillos. Yes you often had to stand in line before you could get a table and they didn't deliver but it was always worth the wait for their great pizzas. I don't think I've ever had a better pizza anywhere including the 4 years I spent in New York while in the Air Force. If we ever go back for a visit there is no doubt Petrillos will be at the top of our list of of places to visit.

This is the best pizza in town. This pizza is prepared old style with a ton of cheese and quality toppings, par excellence.
The salad is served cool, crisp, and fresh. It includes several types of lettuce, Romaine being the most dominant, tomato, pepperchinni peppers, and garbanzo beans. This salad is topped off with their classic balsamic vinaigrette, which is very light and exquisite.
The baked lasagna is served bubbling hot and is topped with delicious layers of cheese. This is one luscious dish.
The bread is served in a basket. The bread is so fresh and soft, and it is served with individual butter pats. Their bread is very scrumptious.
The on draft beer is server ice cold in a frozen heavy glass pitcher as to keep it ice cold.
This restaurant is well staffed with cashiers, host/hostesses, and at least four waiters at four p.m.
The staff is friendly and quick to refill a glass of water or deliver more bread. I never have to wait even a minute for a response. It is very satisfying.
The bathrooms are the cleanest bathrooms that I have ever seen in a restaurant.
I have visited this restaurant twice in the last two weeks, and my family and I are going again tonight. I can hardly wait. This is definitely my new favorite restaurant, and it never deceives my expectations.

This is a great place and worth the wait.
We usually get the special pizza with the works.
This place is worth the long drive.
The pizza is so heavy cause they pile on the ingredients.
Everytime I know I'm going to be in the San Gabriel area I make sure to stop and get a pizza to go.

This place is great. The food never lets me down. The hostesses are a bit snooty, but the waitresses are always friendly and personable. Of course its not always perfect service, but it seems like a family run joint where they really care about serving good food. You might have to wait a little bit on the weekends, but it is worth it.

To the person with the large party who is complaining: don't expect to have a small place cater to a large party. The entire place only has a capacity of about 60 and expecting them to wait for you to get your people together is rude and inconsiderate. Next time, find a larger corporate place to goto. They obviously went out of there way to give up half their resturaunt for you to eat there, and you expect everything to be perfect? GET REAL! Maybe you should rent out a banquet hall and get a caterer for a party of over 20. Seriously.

My family has been going to Petrillos for over 40 years; and for the first time in our lives we had a horrendous experience. In that time, we never had a complaint. I had a banquet for 34 people, and because I didn't have all 34 people there (had 28, though that should be irrelevant), they didn't want to start serving. The server, came back with a note stating our approximation of 35 pushing it up close to my mothers face and referencing, to which my mother responded by dismissing the note, insisting she serve the people already there. Their logic, people arriving late would be upset that the rest of our group was already eating. We had 6 people who were going to arrive late, and according to the manager making everyone wait 45 minutes till they arrived made sense (Imagine if somebody took that attitude with a wedding recep)? Further, service dragged, having to ask 3 times for bread, not taking an additional order of pizza (because it fell outside of the menu items we had preselected), salads came 15 minutes after asking for them, 15 more for the chicken alfredos', 15s more for the sphagettis' (so much for not serving people at different times). My complaints were met by the manager with indifference, saying that we wouldn't have been happy with anything, that the customer is not always right, calculating the tip incorrectly, and when I asked him if he felt that the included tip was appropriate considering the service, he said it was up to me. Over 40 years of my familiy's patronage, no complaints was met with accusations that (now) I wouldn't have been happy with anything. The managers brother I believe (who was more understanding and concerned) and the manager then engaged in yelling match because he seem to try to interject on our side. I think this is the son, because I remember most of my life an elderly kind people. I'm very sad, because I'll never return after the service and treatment I received, and don't recommend anyone to go.

I have been going to this restaurant since mid 70's . I love it there . After I've gotten my favorite spot . They (the fat cows) don't bother me... I sit with my friends or family and , I'm at home . They (the fat cows) leave me to enjoy my meal and time with my family or friends . If you want to eat fast and then enjoy being pressured to get out fast to make room for the next "CONSUMER" Don't go there . Otherwise go , eat , SOCIALIZE , try something old fashioned . If you don't like it.......I don't care. I do and they've been around since I was born , that is "COMFORTING" kind of like good food. If you don't like this review , well you can eat someting else...........

PART 3 OF TONTY'S REVIEW...
Another funny thing...I was reading these"REVIEWS" and guess what I noticed...read the reviews "ONLY THE BEST AT PETRILLO'S" 07/22/2007 Posted by sanodie and "BEST PIZZA AND ITALIAN IN L.A AREA" 04/04/2005 Posted by lilsandi...both are posted by people with similar user names, both typed in CAPITAL letter(to grab your attention), and the stuff they stated...well, let's just say, it sounds like an advertisement...read the reviews and think about it. Some customers have been going to Petrillo's since the 1950's?(how does the average consumer know that) They only use the freshest ingredents? What a joke!!! Don't fall for it!
Another review to look at is..."best pizza in san gabriel valley watch out for fat lazy cow servers" 05/21/2007 Posted by jeeprokin. It's very scary knowing the employees do not wash their hands coming from the restrooms. You have to read this review. Think about the health concerns!!!

Pros: FOOD

Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE

We saw the good reviews so my wife and I went to give it a try. We ordered several things off the menu from appetizers to pasta to pizza (yes there were a lot of left overs). I would rate the appetizers and pasta a 5 or 6 out of 10. Good but nothing to rave over. However, the Pizza was very good. Good cheese with great sausage and pepperoni. I prefer New York or Chicago style, but for CA it's better than most. We'll be back.

Great Pizza. Best I have had. I have been to Casa Bianca, Luigis, all of them, and this pizza is by far the best.

Crust is perfect for the amount of toppings you get.

The Pepperoni and Sausage are really good.

AT PETRILLO'S YOU GET ONLY THE BEST! THE PIZZA IS TO DIE FOR, THEY USE ONLY THE FRESHEST INGREDIENTS AND THEY PILE THEM ON. THE PEPPERONI IS THE MARGARITA PEPPERONI WHICH IS THE VERY BEST AVAILABLE. THEY NOT ONLY HAVE THE BEST PIZZA, BUT THE OTHER FOOD IS FANTASTIC ALSO. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE PART OF THIS FAMILY RUN RESTAURANT. THEIR CUSTOMERS KEEP COMING BACK, SOME SINCE THEY OPENED IN THE 1950'S. AS FOR ME, I HAVE BECOME AND WILL REMAIN A LOYAL FAN OF THIS GREAT PLACE.

Pros: EVERYTHING, EVEN WORTH THE WAIT DUE TO CROWDS

Cons: SOMETIMES THERE IS A LONG WAIT, BUT ONLY BECAUSE EVRYTHING IS MADE FRESH AS ORDERED

I have been going to Petrillo's in San Gabriel since 1991 and have always been a raving fan. Within the last 6 months I gone to Petrillo's about 4 times and everytime it has been an unfavorable experience. The hostess' are very rude and unaccommodating. The service staff seem to be overwhelmed and overworked. On my last visit, my party of 4 had to wait 20 minutes to be seated when there were 4 tables visibly unoccupied. When I asked the hostess who was flipping through a gossip magazine why we could sit at one of the open tables she said in a very cold, unapologetic manner "because the servers are too busy to attend to you". In light of all of this the pizza is great, the best pizza around. I do hope that Petrillo's gets enough complaints that they will turn this all around and they can be my favorate pizza eatery again.

best pizza in san gabriel valley but the service leaves alot of room for improvement all waitresses are a bunch of lazy fat cows and both times 4/27 and 5/20/07 the watresses different but still lazy cows made me and my date wait ten minnutes after bringing bread, to get water this was only after I asked twice the same goes for the coke, even after that (wich is not bad) while I wated for my meal four beefy cows sat in the last booth eating food from sabbaro and gossiping. I dunno whats worse the fact they were eating food from another eatery or when one came out of the bathroom i never heard water run, but i heard the toilet flush and could hear the faucet when other patrons used the facility over all the experience wasn't horible but it was bad and the prices were way too high for me to remind anyone to give me water or watch my server feed herself

I have been going to Petrillo's since 1966...their sausage, green bell pepper, and onion pizza is the best. As far as I am concerned, there is no other pizza. Thankfully, there is one closer to my house in Glendora. I wish they would open another store in my hometown.

Thanks for 40 years of great pizza!

I've been a fan of petrillo pizza since I first discovered it in 1968. I compare all pizza to petrillos. Their pizza is my standard, I have not found a better pizza yet and I doubt I ever will. If you want to taste perfection go to Petrillos. After writing this I?m going there tonight.

I've been going to this restuarant for years and I love it. Now and days it's so hard to find a dining experience where they make you feel like you are part of the family. This is a classic, old school family run business with out all the corporate red tape. They use top of line products, made from scratch when you order, and their main concern is not how much money they're making but what kind of product they're putting on you're table. About the services ...... well I personaly never had a bad experience at Petrillo's but I also never go to this restaurant expecting to be served and fed in 10 min. This place is always really busy and the food is made to order, people can't expect the food or service to happen in an instance. I've actually heard people complaining about waiting tweenty minutes for a pizza (let's be realistic, it's made from scratch!!!). This is a place where you can walk in, enjoy great company, some wine and a wonderfull italian meal. I love the food, the service and everything about this place. Everyone should try this place you wont regret it!

Started going to Petrillo,s in 1966 when I was in High School. Food is great,service stinks
I mover all over So.Calif. and still went back for its great food.Now I live in Woodland Park Colorado and fly back to LA every 90 days,get my business done and go over for dinner.
Service was great in the 70s and 80s but went down hill after that. But thats true for most places today. Customer service is something left to the past.But its the food that brings me back.Only other place I miss is In and Out

Cons: Service ( They have no idea what the word is )

I have been to this restaurant many times both for dine in and take out. I have to agree that the food is very well prepared and it is worth the try BUT the service is terrible. The "girls" got the most sour face you ever want to see when you walk inside both the restaurant and at the take out; they just look like they're better off at a party. I only recall one server (blond hair lady) was friendly. One occasion when all of the food came to our table, but no silverwares; instead they were given to a party table that were still waiting for their food AND we were told that silverwares were still in the wash!! Many times when asked for seconds on bread, we were told that there weren't anymore, but our foods are coming. You can clearly see other tables were serving bread (if they just say it's only one per table, and I would be happy!!). We have not gone back for a while. I recalled they have a sign up to give rating to their restaurant and I just have to rate this place. Enjoy your food, just ignore ALL the services!!

As far as pizza goes, this pizza here is pretty good. It is good enough for me to drive 40 minutes to an hour for it. It was good enough for me to return 3 times so far and I will keep on going back for more.

My children are originally from San Gabriel and now living in England. On a recent trip my childrens first request was to bring a "large" Petrillo Pizza. Owner Reggie was extremly helpful in packaging a cooked product so we would not loose the product. Talk about happy kids. They would like for me to say Thank You Petrillo's and if there is a way we could send it on a monthly basis it would be great.
P.S. My guest from England is arriving August, and the first dinner request is to dine at Petrillos!!

I told some friends I was working in San Gabriel and they went nuts, telling me stories about driving for hours to get Petrillo's pizza. Well I had to try it. The take out are is seperate which I thought might speed up the process. I walked in to the take out area and had to wait a few minutes before someone showed up to help me. I ordered a chesse pizza to go. 25 minutes later I had my pizza and returned to my suite to eat dinner. It was an average pizza. Maybe back in the back they had good product but I really do not see what all the hype is about.

After finding Petrillos on a "top 10" list a few months back, we just had to try it. Our friends are all native East-Coasters, and we are forever looking for great pizza. We called blind (not having a take-out menu yet) and ordered a half-cheese/half-veggie large (which is rectangle and very large!), and a medium sausage/mushroom/olive. The take-out counter is in a separate entrance, which I love. Made it easy to pick up quickly, and they were very pleasant and helpful. The pizza had a very thick crust, which is not my favorite (do they offer a thin version?) and the mushrooms were canned - yuck! But otherwise, the sauce was tasty and not too much cheese. The crust, though on the thick side, was nicely charred and not at all soggy. Held up with all the toppings nicely. Next time, we'll ask for thin crust, and we'll try the white pizza which sounds great. We'll definitely go back, but not for the mushrooms!
