Nostra Casa e' Vostra Casa

As you break our bread we hope that you will come to feel that "Nostra Casa e' Vostra Casa" (our home is your home). In our restaurant, look around at our authentic decor and you'll find many pictures of Pietro's family, his pots, his pans. Smell the aroma of our pizza, and drink our delightful sunny Mediterranean wines. We look forward to sharing this tradition of cooking - considered the world's healthiest - with you and your family.

“Mangia Bene”, Pietro said, which means “Eat Well” and eat well he always did after a hard day’s work because Pietro made it with all the love and attention that goes into genuine Italian cooking. Regina, his wife of 60 years, baked bread and made pasta. Pietro grew the grapes and made wine and roasted the coffee. They spent a lifetime delighting friends with time-inspired meals.

This tradition was brought to West Michigan when Pietro’s Ristorante opened in Grand Rapids February 1980. Since that day, we have served millions of guests and achieved numerous local and national awards. However, our greatest achievement is always “giving our guests more than they expect!” Pietro’s was the first restaurant to make fresh pasta in West Michigan. We were the first to create gourmet pizza and introduce Chicago-style pizza, Stromboli and bruschetta to our community.

Over the years, Pietro’s has contributed over $150,000 worth of food and money to local charities. This was achieved, in part, by organized community events such as our Annual Run Fasta Eat Pasta 5K and our Thanksgiving Day Dinner for the less fortunate.

Pietro and Regina would have been proud.

We look forward to continuing this tradition with you for years to come. It’s our staff that brings all of this attention to life.

We welcome you to break bread with us and watch us continue to grow not only in tradition but in spirit.
