Pepperoncini Italian BYOB Restaurant And Catering
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.
Amazing meal this past Saturday evening. We had only recently learned of this restaurant. We will definitely be back. Our server, Nancy, was so attentive & friendly. The food was scrumptious. Thanks for making our meal so special!!!
We live close by Pepperoncini's, so it is a great little BYOB!
Specials and main menu have something for everyone's tastes buds.
Great food / outstanding service and large plates.
Another great evening. Kelly, Nancy and the whole team are great. Thanks for allowing us to have a beer/ glass of wine while we waited. Our friends enjoyed their dinner and the hospitality. Great time!
Maybe because it was a busy Saturday nite, but I was really underwhelmed.
The staff was matter of fact, no pleasantries what so ever, almost as if it was inconvenience for us to be there. The table was literally on top of another party of 4, plus a draft from the door, not cold out luckily. The time it took our food to get to the table was pretty good. But the food was average at best. My husband had the stuffed chicken, which one part was moist and flavorful, the other was cut so thin that is was dry and not very good. I like that it is a BYOB, and it was recommended to me, but we will not be back
Wonderful first time experience. Portions could be a little larger for the cost.
This place is ok, I wouldn’t rave about it to my friends but the food was fine, just kind of pricey for what you get. I paid $20 for literally 5 raviolis and was still hungry after I finished them, which I have never experienced at an Italian restaurant ever. Also felt like the staff was rushing us out as soon as we finished our plates. Overall it was pretty underwhelming.
The service was great but the food was mediocre. Probably wouldn't return.
Dinners are always awesome and the nightly specials even better
I’ve been here twice and will be returning for sure
We were seated immediately-7pm reservation.
Our wine was opened shortly there after.
Appetizer, salad arrived quickly.
Dinner was right on time.
I had the special....... chicken piccata with shrimp over linguine that was delicious and my husband had the spaghetti with meatballs and sausage which was also excellent! I make my own meatballs and these were very close to homemade.
The ricotta cheesecake is out of this world!
My wife ordered chicken piccata, a special at $29.00, so much lemon she could hardly eat it, took it home and doctored it up so she could have it for lunch the next day, I had chicken parm, not enough gravy but fairly priced at $18.00, came highly recommended but would not go again , service was very good
Delicious food, white table clothes, attentive , friendly service with plenty of parking. This restaurant will be highly recommended to family and friends. In the words of Arnold, “I’ll Be back!”
Terrific. Nancy and Jackie.
The food is absolutely amazing. Don’t leave without having the butter cake for dessert!
I ordered the Wahoo for Dinner. It came with shrimp and tomatoes. Tomatoes were scarce, shrimp was OK, nothing special, but Wahoo was over cooked. I was starving and ate the shrimp and picked at the fish. Server asked if something was wrong because I put my plate aside so she would clear it. I told her I didn’t care for it because it was over cooked. She said she would “ask” if “she” would take it off the bill. Meal ended- got the check- fish ($33) was still on the bill. After inquiring about taking it off/ she said “she” said my plate looked like it was eaten. 😂 Seriously?? I have been a customer of this restaurant for years! Is “she” stupid? For $33 she lost a customer- we will never return.
4 stars: food
The servers and hostess seemed unprepared for the busy Saturday evening.
Good food. Very crowded small place no room to wait
Great food and prices are very reasonable. and Nancy is the best server!!
I had a 7:30 reservation and was not seated until 8:00pm. This doesn't usually bother me, but the hostess was so unconcerned and never even apologized or acknowledged the situation. This was very off putting to me. There were 3 parties of 4 crammed into the corner for over 20 minutes. 3 tables opened up at the same time. Instead of helping to set the tables up, the hostess chatted for 10 minutes with a table who was just finishing up and left us all standing there and the busboy & waitress scrambling. I believe the owner was in as well and never acknowledged us either. This is just rude! I don't mind waiting, but an apology is appropriate. I will say the food was quite good, although the portion size was inconsistent in the entrees. Our waitress was very pleasant, but clearly pushed to the limits. This is very disappointing. I live in Havertown and try very hard to patronize local business. At the risk of sounding like a jerk, I will also mention that the tables are entirely too close together. I understand it is a small place, but my husband had to sit on an angle just to fit at the table because we were beside a larger group. There is so much potential here, but customer service needs considerable work.
Great neighborhood BYOB. Always enjoyable and great food.
Our server Nancy was awesome, food was incredible.
Valentine Day night out! Pepperoncini's was very busy as usual on an holiday.
20 oz. porterhouse steak was perfectly cook. My wife had the salmon.
Salads can be for two people, very big portion.
Outstanding "BYOB" in Havertown, always over the top specials.
Service was just adequate, no personal contact she was aleays distracted.
Wonderful food. Terrific wait staff. Cozy atmosphere.
It was extremely busy while we were there. Many people were celebrating Valentine’s Day! That being said, we were greeted quickly and after a short wait escorted to our table. We had some wine and looked over the extensive specials menu. We ordered and our food came in a timely manner. The food was excellent and hot. We were not rushed and throughly enjoyed everything we had. Jackie was our waitress and she was wonderful. It is always great to see Kelly and Nancy. Another wonderful night.
Kelly and Nancy are great. Were with 2 friends and they enjoyed themselves as well. Always have a nice time there. Happened again this evening. Thanks
Always friendly and efficient service. Kelly is awesome. Wide variety of specials. Food is consistently delicious. Great neighborhood place to dine.
This restaurant is obviously getting more and more attention as it was very crowded when we arrived for our 7 o’clock seating on a Saturday night. With six people waiting to be seated we were literally standing right next to other diners and it felt like we were an annoyance to them, which is understandable. It was too cold to stand and wait outside.
After we were seated, the one and only annoyance we had was the terribly wobbly table. It might be a minor pet peeve, but they need to invest back into their facilities with better table tops.
Have dined there several times and the meals have always been great ; plenty of good options to pick and they are always willing to substitute . Service is very good and highly recommend it for any occasion .
meal was heavy unsophisticated and disappointing, this was our fourth visit and a suprise
Love this place. Food is great. Specials are always special. Go early -- it gets busy.
Overall experience was very good. They made a special attempt to get us seated earlier than the reservation, as the weather was getting worse as the snow began falling.
The service was pleasant as always. The fish dishes were very good and fresh, particularily the Mediterranean Sea Bass.Very favorable comments on the pork chop as well.
We will return again, worth the trip for us.
First time at this restaurant. Definitely go back. Great service and food. Very relaxing and enjoyable.
Food and service were excellent. Our waitress Nancy was very personable and did a great job. My only complaint would be that the tables are on top of each other and I felt like I was sitting with the people at the next table.
Four of us ate dinner two evenings ago. The restaurant was quiet.
Three of us enjoyed our entries; my fish was very good. My husband had the veal and scallops on angel hair pasta. The pasta and he scallops were good, but the veal was tough. He said after dinner he should have sent it back to the kitchen. He won’t return.
We shared a cake dessert which was good and very very sweet.
Excellent reliable Italian
Our regular go to
Good Byob - we have been 5 times and it is good and consistent with a very good special menu.
The food was delish and the servers were very attentive.
Great meal had by all! It was the first time for 6 of the 8 people and it pleased even the fussiest of the foodies. Excellent service and delicious dessert!
