Welcome to Pepperoncini Italian BYOB Restaurant and Catering, a delicious slice of Italy right in the heart of Havertown. Developed from the same authentic recipe as Pepperoncini in Conshohocken and Pepperoncini Sotto in Phoenixville (but just a little closer to home), Pepperoncini Italian BYOB chef/owners Tommy and Dan, will spend as much time chatting and taking care of you as they will making sure you’re well fed.
Walking through the door, you’ll immediately smell the unmistakable aroma of meatballs, pork and sausage simmering for hours in homemade sauce; succulent appetizers, side dishes and desserts; and a “family” that looks forward to seeing you, feeding you, sharing a laugh, and maybe sneaking you a glass of wine.

Found this place on the internet and upon arrival, wondered if I had made a mistake. Outside of the building looks like a pizza parlor. All 5 of us were pleasantly surprised when we went inside. Nice décor and very good service. We had a wide range of entrees and everyone raved about the food. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I were chagrined at finding this place 5 years after it opened. If we had tried it back then instead of our first visit this would have been a double digit return to get the food and service of Pepperoncini.

Reasonable prices, great food (do not turn down the butter cake if it is offered for dessert!), and good service make it a new favorite in the ‘burbs.

Absolutely delicious food and such a variety! We were greeted with a friendly smile and immediate water and bread and seasoned olive oil. Our wine was opened and poured. Specials were recited and explained. The food was hot when served and extremely tasty. I will frequent Pepperoncini BYOB Italian Restaurant, often.

Love BYOB’s. Had been wanting to try this place for a while. Finally had the opportunity. Small restaurant, not a lot of tables, so would definitely recommend having a reservation. Went pretty plain for the meal. Had the chicken parm with linguine and husband had linguine with homemade meatball & sausage. We were both very happy with our meals. Everything was very fresh and delicious. Had the Butter cake for desert and I’ve never had better. Would definitely recommend and will be back. Only disappointment was the atmosphere. They really need to add some pictures and other decor to make it feel more homey.

Seems like you get treated better if you are a regular. Kind of tight in there. Felt like people at next table were right on top of me. Menu was surprisingly limited for an Italian restaurant. Just 2-3 pasta options. Food was good but this place is a few spots below my favorite italian restaurant.

Great neighborhood restaurant . Lots of variety. Owners very concerned about customer service. Very accommodating if you want to switch out a vegetable that comes with an entree and no up-charge. Byob also. Very pleasant eating experience.

We had a 6:30 reservation and waited almost an hour to be seated. The bread was stale. When our food finally arrived my husbands risotto was undercooked and my chicken was rubbery and tasted like jar sauce. I returned it and left starving. We left at 9:30. I have never returned a meal but the chicken was inedible. On top of it all the waitress was rude even though we remained upbeat and tipped her well. Needless to say I will never be back.

Awesome meal. Best Italian food around! Try the stuffed chicken breast and the new York strip steak. Salads were also great - simple and delicious. Desserts were to die for. Highly recommend the ricotta cheesecake and limoncello cake.

The service at this restaurant was awesome. One customer did not like one of the specials, and as a result, the waitress advised me to get something else on the menu instead. She even went one step further and charged me the lower of the two prices and comped our dessert - all of which were completely unnecessary. The speed of the kitchen seemed a little behind but the food was well worth the wait. My girlfriend and I will certainly be back in the future.

This was our first time at the restaurant and we went to the wrong place first as I didn’t pay close enough attention to see that they have two locations! Driving up it is unremarkable but the food was very good. I would request that they try to keep a current menu on this app as I had my heart set on something that was not offered. But what I got in it’s place was very good.

We had heard great things about the food at Pepperoncini and were not disappointed. Service was excellent and our appetizers and dinner were delicious. Our server was very attentive to our table. It is a little noisy but it is small place, with a glass front wall and tile flooring so that was to be expected. Overall it was a great experience and we will definitely go there again.

I got the crab cakes and it was supposed to be over asparagus but since we got the asparagus appetizer I asked if I could get it over spinach and it was done with roasted potatoes. It was delicious and I had plenty so I took it home and had it for dinner the next night. The asparagus appetizer was delicious too and for desert I got the lemoncella. It was amazing.
