When Freeport is busy, it is difficult to find a place to have a sit-down lunch. The two major restaurant, Linda Bean's and Jamison's Tavern quickly become busy with long waits. I was staying at the Hilton garden Inn and I remembered seeing a restaurant down the street so we gave it try. We were able to quickly secure a booth and decided to eat light, ordering the pizza. We were presently surprised. The pizza was tasted with nice pepperoni, sauce and cheese. In fact, the menu had some very interesting dishes and if we had stayed another day we most likely would have returned for dinner. Restaurant prices in Freeport are very high and this was a nice change of pace. It is located on Depot Street off of Bow Street by the rail-r road tracks.

Looking for a good local place to eat in Freeport, Maine. Was told about Petrillo's a full service restaurant with seating at tables and the bar. We had pizza and bread sticks. the food and service were exceptional an hats off to the kitchen staff too. I know what you're thinking, pizza, no big deal but this was to us, not a thick, greasy doughy crust, lots of FLAVOR, just the right amount of sauce. So if your looking for a quiet, low key restaurant in Freeport, Petrillo's is it !!!!!

Stopped here on a Saturday at 1 for lunch. All the tables were taken. We were offered the bar but decided to wait. We must have just walked in right after a crowd because once our table was ready three more tables emptied out. It looked like there was only two women waitressing the whole restaurant. Our waitress was never rude but she was definitely stressed out. We ordered the Sausage and peppers sandwich and the mozzarella and tomato panini, both came with fries. Service was very slow. The sandwiches tasted very good but they were TINY and there was five fries on each of our plate. The waitress never came by again except to give the check after serving our food. Between the long wait for food and the small portions and don’t think I would go back.

Hello Andrea

Thank you for reviewing

We are glad you liked the flavors, but sad that you received so few of our hand cut fries. That is below our standards and if you give us the chance we will make it right.

Thanks Dom Petrillo

What a great find! We came into town later our B&B gave a few suggestions. We chose Petrillos and we are glad we did. The service was top notch the food delicious. The pasta is fresh, the bread made on sight all homemade salad dressings. It has local charm and off the main drive. If I could give six stars I would
