Upstairs due to party downstairs. There was live entertainment which was too loud for the space, made conversation impossible. Service left much to be desired. Entrees arrived before we had place settings....had to wait and watch the food get cold.

I highly recommend this restaurant, everyone in our party said they couldn't wait to return! The service was friendly and knowledgeable,helping with suggestions. We had a fun time and we were probably the nosiest table in the restaurant just because we were having such a good time. The appetizers came quick,were the right temperature and did not disappoint. All the entrees were consumed with smiles all around. I ordered the filet mignon medium and it was a perfect medium and the cut was NOT butterflied and I appreciated that. Go and see for yourself,you can thank me later. P.S. some other reviewer said the Bolognese was salty? Not the night we were there,it was delicious.

Went there for a 70th birthday party. We have 7 people while the party next to us had 18 people. The restaurant had no problem handling the multiple parties and the other patrons. Food was excellent. The servers ere great!

My Husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal, which was served without pressure. The staff is very friendly. Our waitress even anticipated my husband must have condiment: Red Pepper Flakes! Definitely, we will be returning soon.

Food was very good and cooked like we wanted it. The only bad thing I could say about it was a large bug crawling around the window. Service was ok but it seemed that at times she really only half-listened to what we had said. Overall, good place to dine.

Ask d for Olive oil to dip the bread. Don’t know what we were given, it was not olive oil and brought it in a soup bowl. Den it back and the waitress apologized said the other server gave us the wrong thing. Replaced it with Olive Oil. Two people ordered pappadelle with meat sauce and one ordered Veal Parmigiana ALL WERE TOO SALTY!!! 4 ordered cappuccino, not very good, served without teaspoons and no sugar on the table. Also, I was a waitress in my day and trained the staff for the Hilton Corporation. When a group of people order drinks let’s say 6 drinks and ice on the side. We would place all 6 drinks on a TRAY with the glass of ice and cocktail napkins to be placed under each drink . Why do your servers bring one or two drinks first.? Then two more, then go back again and bring two more and go back EVEN again to get the ice! She could have made ONE TRIP and everyone gets their drinks together. A TRAY is the answer AND cocktail napkins should always be placed under ANY DRINK to avoid condensation or anything dripping on the customer. It’s one thing if it’s a Fast Food Restaurant but fine dining should served like Fine Dining. You are not the only restaurant who has given up what creates fine dining. Many have and it’s a shame. But the ONE DRINK CARRIED OVER AT A TIME IS SIMPLY A WASTE OF TIME AND FOOTSTEPS.
In the business my entire life from server to bartender, to trainer to owning my own restaurant and Catering Hall.

This is a very nice pace to eat for Italian food. The only issue we had with our last visit was a bit of on odor probably from the carpet cleaning. They had the door open to clear it but it still was present where we were first seated. Other than that, the food was very tasty and the service was very good. I would recommend it.

We had dinner there and it was very good. The food was quite tasty, the service was good and the prices was fair for this type of restaurant. The only negative thing I could say is that we were there for a quiet dinner but shortly after arriving a large group of people were seated right next to us and they were a bit noisy. The patrons were way too closely seated by us even though they could have easily been seated elsewhere since the restaurant was basically empty at the time.

Their menu that was shown on open table got my interest with a veal porterhouse and broccoli rabe dish. I saw a lot of entrees that I knew my wife would love as well, so we booked it. When we are presented the menu as we sit down, the entire menu was exactly the one I saw thru OT, minus the veal porterhouse. Don't get me wrong I eat everything, but when I have my mind set on something, I want that. I wound up settling for something that was still really good, but it wasn't the same. I wound up getting the stuffed pork chop. Service was excellent as well.

Reservations for 745. Sat about 8. Not too bad. Getting a drink at the bar was rough. Hard to get the bartender's attention. They had an interesting drink but were out of cherry liqueur. It is Valentine's Day, maybe order an extra bottle.

Once seated the menu had some interesting items. I selected gnocchi and the stuffed pork chop. Alas by 8, no more pork chop. Ordered chicken dish instead.

The gnocchi, as I have experienced throughout the world, are soft, light pillows of taste. Not so here. Here they b cab double as fishing weights and a bit toothy. The sauce saved the dish.

The chicken dish was ok. I can't remember the name, but it started with an "S ".

I have the appropriate rating. OK, not b great. Would consider going back.

So-called "Homemade" gnocchi was horrible and rock like. Had to return a cocktail that tasted like dishwater. Prices were too high for the low quality of this meal. This in unfortunate because we to enjoyed dining here in the past.

We arrived and we sat at the table very quickly which was good. It took a while to get the menus, and even longer to place our actual food orders. It took a very long time to get the appetizers and we waited almost two hours before the entrées were served. Many patrons were complaining about how long the dinners were taking. There was a singer in the bar that was so loud we couldn't speak at the table. Maybe they were just under staffed on this night. We will not be going back soon.

My wife and I were celebrating our 7 year anniversary. I never ever complain. Our waitress was never around, 2 tables that sat down after us were getting their leftovers in their take home containers, long before our orders were taken. Thank God for the hostess, she kept calling our waitress and one point we said we were actually leaving. The worst part though is that I had the cod, I got sick from it great ending to an awful experience! Wont be back.

This was our first time at Pieros. We had a reservation at 7 and were running a bit late we arrived at 7:15 we were told that we would have to wait about 15-20 mins for our table. Not a big deal the bar tender was great. However we didn't sit down until 8:10. The food was great but the wait was awful.

Overall experience was okay. Service to get drink and food terribly slow!! The waitress though was so sweet which made up for that. We had to wait about 20 minutes just to get asked if we wanted drinks. And received the drink about another 10 minutes later. Also were told bread will be right over and sure enough 15 minutes later the bread came. My food was great fettuccine but my boyfriend chicken marsala was so bland. When we got our drink the first time the soda machine must have ran out of syrup so it tasted like seltzer water. My boy friend had to wait for a very long time for a drink and in the mean time he wasn't offered a drink in between or asked if he would like anything else.

At the end asked to have food wrapped and for our check we waited about 15 minutes to get that. At the time we got the check but she forgot that she wrapped my boyfriends food.

Dined here recently for the 1st time in quite a while. Have to say I was very disappointed. To be fair, the service was exceptional. The food on the other hand, not so good. The $32 short rib that you would expect to be pulled apart with a fork, need to be wrestled apart. Either not a good piece of meat or not cooked correctly. The linguine tasted like a salt shaker has been emptied in it. It was barely edible. Chicken Parm was greasy, but edible. Prices are too high for quality of the meal.

Have eaten here many times over the years and know that it is under new ownership recently, but do not think I will be back with other good options in the area.

The food was great and so was the service. They had entertainment in the bar which made the noise level a little on the loud side. It made for a little difficult conversation but not a deal breaker! Will definitely go again and recommend to others. Dinner for 4 with cocktails, appetizers and dessert was about $200.
