About Pepperoncini Italian BYOB Restaurant And Catering

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.

Had reservation for 7.30 pm, but were only seated at 8.10
Hostess was rude but owner and waitress made up for her behavior, great food but second time been there, and problem with on time reservation again, not worth making reservation

We were a party of 7 and they were able to accommodate us without trouble. The food was great. There were great menu choices as well as a long list of specials including red snapper, lamb, 12 oz Filet, osso bucco. Really great restaurant. You'll enjoy.

1st time at this place. I thought seating was a little tight and the temp outside were freezing and we were seated near the door. Not idea placement. the food was wonderful, my mate had the seafood rosota (sorry can't spell it) but that was delicious! I had the veal special and it was wonderful. We are going back!

I came here New Years Eve for dinner with a date. The service was excellent. He got the chicken parmigiana and I had crab ravioli. I also brought wine. The food was very good with large portions.

Holiday week dinner with friends. We had to wait a while for our reservation because the place was packed, but the hostess kept us informed of the progress. My husband had Swordfish puttanesca and said it was the best swordfish he ever had. I had veal with crab and couldn’t really taste the crab. Dessert was very good. We were the last to leave the restaurant and the staff were very accommodating.

My first time at Havertown location (my wife had been there with friends and co-workers). Food was very good. Had the crab cake special and crab and vegatable egg rolls as app. Leave room for dessert! They are tasty and home made.

LOVED the food! It was a perfect place to take my mom and our family for a nice birthday dinner. Food is a bit expensive, but we didn't mind because it was so delicious. I appreciate a nice/fancier restaurant in Havertown.

You can’t go wrong with any of the Pepperoncini locations. While the chefs are different, they are all excellent. This BYOB in Havertown has fantastic food, friendly service, and a nice vibe. You might be surprised, since it shares an building with a UPS Store, but inside the vibe is quality. Nice music, good layout, and excellent, creative specials.

my friends love this place but i wasn't all that impressed, there are plenty of other italian byob places in the area that i would go to before returning here. the place is tiny and the tables are really close together. we had the misfortune of getting the table right near the kitchen so every time something came in or out of the kitchen it went right by our table and i found it annoying. the food was ok, nothing wrong with it but nothing terribly exciting. sorry, but it just isn't going to become a favorite of mine.

I went here with a friend. I have driven by this place quite a few times but this is my first dining experience. It was wonderful. The food is fantastic and the service was excellent. It is a small unassuming place on the outside but worth the trip inside.

Found this place on Open table and basically picked it for location and available table. My mom and I were pleasantly surprised at how cute this place was. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. The waitress even reserved the last veal chop before we formally ordered because it sounded so good. We went early, at 6:30, and we had the last veal chop!!! This place was delicious-would definitely go back.

We were very disappointed in the food, 2 steak specials were overdone, the other 4 meals were so-so. The appetizers were very good but I don't think we'd go back as there are other very good restaurants in Delaware County with better food.

Pepperoncini is adequate as a neighborhood Italian. The food isn't bad, but not as good as it should be. Caesar salad was nice and garlicky, but with a bit more dressing than necessary. Clams with linguini in white sauce was disappointing. The linguine (which appeared to be more like thin spaghetti) was nothing special, and the sauce was much too thick. On the plus side, the Italian bread with seasoned olive oil was quite good, and the service was professional -- we made it clear that we did not want to be rushed, and our server was very accommodating. In fairness, my dining companions seemed happy with their food, so maybe I just ordered the wrong dish. In short, I would not steer you away from this place for a casual meal, but it's nothing to go out of your way for.

We dine at Pepperocini's quite often. My wife had the salmon, which was a healthy serving and always very good. I had the veal special and it was excellent. My plate was empty so no "doggy bag" for me. lol! However, its the staff and the service that stand out. Kelly and Nancy are very personable and are always attentive to detail. We enjoy chatting with them. Try it, it's a local "gem".
