    This restaurant is consistently good. Lots of menu choices and special offerings daily. Wait staff is always friendly and Piero is a very nice man. Live entertainment on some nights adds a nice touch.

    I ordered a braised beef dish, and it melted in my mouth. My friend had Veal Osso Bucco, and she said it was the best she's had in yrs. They also have live entertainment, single person singing and she had a lovely voice. Very relaxing and enjoyable. I haven't found a decent place to eat in quite a while, at least not one that I would rave about, now I have one! They are hard to find. I Can't wait to go back.

    Celebrated Valentine's Day at Pieros. No shortcuts on the menu. We went the full route with dinner and every course was delicious. I used Open Table links to arrange for flowers to be delivered to the restaurant. They arrived as scheduled, looked fabulous, and were brought to the table by the Hostess (Piero's wife) right after we sat down. Piero's son and daughter also work the floor. The waitstaff is friendly, attentive, and knows the food. About 7-7:30 PM on Fri/Sat (as we understand it), they have "entertainment" that may include piano, a duo, etc. On the night we were there, the duo was exceptional. The restaurant is beautiful and very comfortable. This was our first experience with the restaurant and will DEFINITELY be going back!

    Food was really outstanding, Appetizers, salad and entrees were all wonderful, hot and cooked to perfection. Portions were large. Hostess was unfriendly, made us feel as though we were bothering her, Never welcomed us or cracked a smile. Made our reservations on "Open Table" got a confirmation. She told us we did not have reservations, I told her I had made them at "Open table" she grunted and begrudgingly led us to a table. If I did not have 6 other diners with us, I would have left and gone elsewhere....I will give it another shot, only because the food was so good. If we are greeted again in the same manner, we will not be staying for dinner or going back again, ever!

Food was great, a little old school but with an updated twist on all the old standards. Service was great, our reservation was honored, an all around pleasant evening. There was even a non-invasive strolling singer. We will be keeping Piero's on our regular rotation.

    I have to say that I will NOT be back to this restaurant. I had a 7:45pm reservation. Arrived about 7:42pm waited until 7:45pm to tell the Hostess (mgr) that I was there for my reservation. I was then told that my table was being cleaned off and it would be about 5 min. 20 min later I still wasn't seated, when returning to the Female manager she told me that I would have to wait that it doesn't matter that I have a reservation that it's Saturday and things happen. I was totally disguested by her attitude she was extremely rude and non apologetic. After 25 min of waiting we were finally seated because we put up a big stink at the fact that they had empty tables for that entire time and yet didn't seat us who had a reservation.
