Venue says We have opened our large outdoor cafe! Join us on Wine Down Wednesday for half price bottles of wine to sip on outside.

There seems to be a slicery on nearly every street corner in the city, but sometimes, you need a pizza with a bit more finesse. Petaluma has been dishing out Italian-American cuisine for more than 30 years on the Upper East Side. The restaurant’s popularity is thanks in part to its wood-fired thin-crust pizzas with toppings like spinach artichoke ($21) and fried eggplant, ricotta and tomato ($18). The pasta menu offers classics such as orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage ($20), shrimp scampi ($24) and spaghetti carbonara ($22). The carb-conscious might want to skip the heavy stuff and go straight for a protein-centric entree, like the veal marsala ($29) or the pan-seared Atlantic salmon ($28). Select a drink from a long wine list with vintages available both by the glass and the bottle, or order that non-alcoholic Italian classic, San Pellegrino Limonata ($5).

Ive been here several times. Never disappointed. The food is delicious, the service is that of a Michelin Star rated place and after the renovations the place shines even more! I hope they make it!

Petaluma is a favorite spot of mine and my friends in the UES. In a quiet area where it can be tough to find a good time on both weekdays and weekends, Petaluma comes through. From the food to the staff to the atmosphere, it has only gotten better over the past few years. With almost 30 wines by the glass, a boozy weekend brunch, a newly remodeled outdoor patio, and a genuine staff that knows your name and cares about you, I can be found here almost any time on any day of the week!!

Neighborhood Italian that's not too dated. Been coming for 15 years, and now my friends are enjoying the same experience. The wood oven pizza, homemade pastas and chicken scarpiello are to die for. Something about them meatballs makes this out of this world.
