No matter what I've gotten here you can't go wrong but when it comes to the parm dishes the veal parm by far is the best hands down

Their food was excellent as well as the service. They should remove from Google search or update their status. As great as they were for so many years, they closed on May 5, 2016

April 30th 2016 Petta's last day open. They have sold the establishment and the building is now going to be a Church. Last meal was wonderful as always. Took a while to get our meals, but that was because it was packed! Very sad. This...More

Never Disappointed. Petta's has been around it seems like the beginning of Schenectady. The food is Real Italian, not your Chain Restaurant style food. The atmosphere is old school restaurant so do not expect flashy new ambiance, this is not Olive Garden, this is the...More

I'd heard so much good about Pettas, so I ended up extremely disappointed. First, we weren't sure if they were open, since the parking lot was almost empty. Then, looking at the menu, I was shocked at the prices which were very high - comparable...More

We had our rehearsal dinner here 5 years ago, and it was awesome back then. We went last night and were very disappointed. The only good thing was the homemade bread given at the beginning. The sauce was tasteless and watery. Chicken parm was rubbery...More

At Petta's, we spend a majority of our time prepping our entrees with the perfect spices and sauces to make them as tasty as can be. All of our dishes are sauteed and cooked to order, using fresh ingredients. Our portions are large and our prices can't be beat. We have an extensive list of beers and wines to choose from as well as seafood and steaks. Our steak is some of our customers' favorite entree. Aged and cut on our premises, our steaks are juicy and cooked to perfection. Petta's offers plenty of vegetarian options too. Come in and try a Salad with our famous Blue Cheese Dressing, Soup, Veal Oreganata, Eggplant Parmigiana, Chicken Marsala, or Sea Scallops. Petta's is the premier restaurant destination in Schenectady with friendly staff, a charming atmosphere, and savory cuisine.
