The Oklahoma Restaurant With Italian Roots That Date Back To The Early 1900s

Pietro “Pete” Piegari came through the gates of Ellis Island in 1903 with his family after traveling across the Atlantic from San Gregorio Magno, Italy.

After a coal-mining accident at the age of 21, Pete took an interest in growing beer and perfected his own brand called choc® beer. It only seemed natural to start serving up some of his family’s homemade Italian recipes to go with the beer, so in 1925 Pete opened a restaurant in his home “Pete’s Place.” Almost a century later, Pete’s is still going strong and serving the same decadent Italian dishes that have been passed down multi-generations.
