Had not been there in over 10 years. I made a reservation there because I got not get one at my first two choices. What a nice surprise! Our server was wonderful, the food was delicious, and the bill was more than reasonable. The atmosphere is great. The dining area is setup up very nicely with warm decor, comfortable temp, noise level allows a fairly private conversation. I will definitely return !

Food was excellent. Overall service was not bad but can be improved to match expectations of service for the price paid for the food and drink. Overall it was a very good experience and will go back again.

My wife and I came to Piero's for Valentine's day. The atmosphere was romantic, the food was excellent. The tortellini was delicious. We sat upstairs. Dan was our server - super nice guy, very helpful, very on the ball. We'll definitely be back.

Our second time going there for Valentine’s Day, same service as last year .. They forgot our food, we waited 45 mins for it. Made reservations and had to wait, they should have more staff on holidays or not to over book tables. Will not be going back especially for the money that was spent

We were seating immediately per our reservations. Waiter came with water in green bottles and poured. No ice. So we had to ask for ice for the warm water. We ordered apps, calamari, was good but were only given about two tablespoons of tom sauce, not nearly enough for the serving, the bread and rolls were very good but had two ask three times for butter, three different people. Portabella mushroom app was very good. Ordered dinner, 4 people had stuffed flounder with lump crab meat, the portion was not even a single filet, it was half of a filet the size of a pack of playing cards, no stuffing on any of them only two small pieces of shrimp on the top, this was served on a bed of spinich and had fried potato cubes around the plate. Very disappointed. Other guest had a seafood pasta dish, pasta was not cooked was actually stuck together and rest of dish was poor taste and quality, veal dish was overcooked cutlet though still tender with arugula was OK. Also we ordered 4 glasses of wine and they never showed till after we ate our dinner. Did not want any desert. Sorry will not go back. The place is aged, dirty parking lot, bathroom door needs replacement. Portions too small, too expensive. …...

This was not at all like the Piero’s of years ago. We hadn’t been in a long time and expected a much higher level of ambience and service. It was more of a bar environment with loud music, loud talking and poor service. My dinner was good but my husband ‘s pasta was more raw than al dente and the dish was too dry overall. It took way too long for our waitress to acknowledge us and even bring water. We won’t go back anytime soon.

We had 9 people, half our meals were delicious the other half not so good. The service was not good at all, no one came to ask if we needed anything we had to call people over. The clams in the linguine & clam sauce was pure rubber & the red "gravy" was too sweet & the ravioli's were undercooked. The filet mignon & scallops & short ribs were delicious.. so no consistency. This was not our Pieros' of 10 years ago we gave it another try but not sure if we will be back.

I haven't been here is a couple years and thought we'd try it... The place is evidently under new ownership and being updated. My wife and I went early on a Sunday and it was unusually empty, which we didn't mind because it was nice and quiet.
The service was fantastic, out waitress was very attentive and everything was served exactly as we ordered. Timing was perfect and the food was spectacular.
We will definitely be returning soon!

Awesome food and great service! The overall appearance needs some updating but the food makes it worthwhile! Homemade Mozzerella and salad delicious! Sunday sauce with homemade pasta was outstanding! Love the meatballs! Having a daughter who is celiac the homemade gluten free pasta was a terrific surprise! Definitely recommend and can't wait to go back again!

We haven't been to Piero's in quite a long time since we don't live in the area. We were in the area due to a family function and I decided to surprise my wife with dinner there on the way home.

When we first sat down we realized from the menus that it wasn't the same as before and at first we were apprehensive. But to our happy surprise the food was awesome, the service was great and the prices were very fair. My wife had the Chicken Principessa , which was delicious - as was my Pappardelle Bolognese. The portions were a perfect size.

We look forward to the next time I am in the area, Piero's will definitely be one of our stops.

Pleasantly surprised. After a long period of not frequenting Pieros I was super happy with the quality of the food as I had heard that it was not as good as it use to be. Visited on a Sunday night, crowd was light, and it seemed like our server had multiple jobs - hostess, server, bartender. But with all that being said, experience was good, food was delicious.

Very disappointed in their Mothers Day brunch. Food was tasty but most all hot foods were cold. Not a big selection compared to other brunches we’ve enjoyed. Desserts were very limited, pastries & cubed fruit was our only option. 20% gratuity was added into our check but service was very limited. Definitely would not return for the price we paid!

Not Applicable would be more accurate because after two hours, all we received was drinks and two appetizers. Our food never came; our waiter avoided our table and when he came over once, he didn’t ask to refill our drinks or apologize for the long wait but instead said “this is what happens when you come on the busiest night of the year. I’ll bring your food out when it’s ready.” Although management never came to our table either, I can say they comped our drinks and two apps when I went to ask them for the check to pay for what we had before we walked out. We don’t expect to be back.

The evening started when we entered and wee greeted by Kaytlien, I pray I spelled her name correctly! She was polite, funny and friendly, a great beginning. She seated us and things just kept getting better, the specials were explained, and dishes we had questions about were answered quickly and completely. We had the stuffed mushrooms, which were even better than my mother's, a hard trick to pull off. My wife feasted on the Chicken Princessa, and I had Homemade gnocchi with Hot Italian Sausage and Broccoli Rabe. Kayt suggested a fine Chianti to go with the meal, and off we went to dinner heaven. The food arrived hot and delicious, we both cleaned our plates! Desert was Irish coffee for the wife, and a cannolli with espresso and Sambuca for me. I can't say enough about how great the evening was, we will definitely be returning. I give them 10 Stars!!!!!!
