317 E. Kettleman Lane, Lodi (209) 368-0613, www.PietrosLodi.com Forty years after Pietro and Amelia Murdaca opened this familystyle Italian restaurant in 1957 to give their loved ones a place to enjoy “the traditional recipes of their native Italy,” husband and wife team Annette and Jim are following in their footsteps. At this time-honored favorite in Lodi, Jim still cooks in the restaurant’s kitchen, just like Pietro once did, serving up homemade raviolis, sauces, and desserts from family recipes passed down through generations. The Genovese ravioli with Calabrese sauce is a Pietro’s favorite, with all dishes still served Italian family-style and meant to be enjoyed by the entire table. Come and experience a delicious dinner with family or friends in a warm and inviting atmosphere of Old World Italian charm at Pietro’s Trattoria in Lodi.
