Pepperoncini Restaurant & Bar, Havertown
Tommy and his team always deliver a wonderful meal and fun evening!!
The food was adequate but not as good as it had been in the past
The best food. Period.
I was there for a girls night. The food was excellent. My friend and I had veal parm
and my other friends had Veal malese. Both dishes were excellent. I would recommend Pepperonci
This restaurant serves delicious food, ample drinks and has fantastic servers and staff. The only thing lacking is ambiance, but it has everything else. We had a lovely evening here.
Very good food, helpful staff, great value. Go and enjoy!
Our first time here - loved the food, the service, my Espresso martini - all wonderful!
Everything we ordered was delicious: tripe and long hot appetizers, veal parm, veal Eleanor and chicken milanese!! Service was great. The staff couldn't be nicer. We will definitely be back!
Mushroom risotto and caramelized scallops were delicious.
Great Sunday Gravy Dinner, good prices and fabulous dessert.
Very good food with generous portions that come out quickly at a slight premium over average. The chef/owner comes around and checks on your meal and chitchats with you. The wait staff also checks in regularly, and it’s like being in a friend’s house and being waited on by a friend. Beautiful new decor and the restaurant is very clean.
If you never eaten at Pepperocini you don't know what your missing. From the staff to the food everything is awesome
Great food and service
The food was delicious but our waitress Nancy made our evening even more enjoyable! Very attentive and friendly. A great experience! Will definitely come again!!!’n
Words cannot describe how wonderful the food is especially the homemade dessert. We are creatures of habit so we ordered the chicken parmesean again. This time I ordered the rigatoni as my pasta. I was looking forward to having the ricotta cheesecake with raspberry sauce and John was looking forward to the flour less chocolate cake instead we had chocolate chip cheesecake also made with ricotta cheese and OMG MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH
Another terrific evening at Pepperoncini! Food and staff are excellent! The specials menu was exceptionally good this week. Love the TV’s downstairs too!
Been here several times. We've never had a bad meal. Very enjoyable.
First time at the restaurant. Parking is a little odd, so be sure to be in the right lot or risk getting towed (the restaurant's website is SPECIFIC about this). Ate on the first floor (at our request, since we had a party that can't handle the stairs). High bar stool tables pushed together for 6 were fine. Large bar on the first floor, only 6 or 7 tables for 2.
People were nice and happy to see us. Greeted at the door. Small but nice wine menu got us going, and a really great Old Fashioned. :-) Appetizers were hot and timely. Portabello mushroom was really good. Baked Clams Pepperoncini need some help. Got 10 or 12 really small clams that weren't shucked out of the shells. Made eating a little difficult. Would rather have gotten 5 or 6 cherrystones at the same price. VERY spicy. More than I was expecting, but not bad overall. Tender Fried Calamari, a staple, I'd imagine, was good too.
We had a few specials and a few regular menu items for mains. Lamb was perfectly done and thoroughly enjoyed. The Caesar's Salad dressing was a bit sweet, and kind of odd, but it worked. Also a bit sweet on the Chicken Parm sauce, but cooked well and pasta was not overdone. The Mediterranean Sea Bass was parchment bag cooked, and was a very subtle flavor that was overpowered with too much pepper. The vegetable brunoise, though, was a nice accompaniment.
Finished with homemade Philly Butter pie that was very good, and brought back memories of our grandmother's recipe.
I'd recommend that the kitchen skip on shaking chopped parsley over seemingly every dish. Very 90's (at best). It was good food, it should stand as good food. It wasn't necessary and looked messy.
All in all, a nice, tight Italian menu, with a good rounding of specials and a solid performance from what we had to eat. We'll definitely give it another try and search out other items on the menu for comparison. But nice to have a new place that might be on our 'go to' local restaurant list.
Seriously, what are you seeing that we missed? I ordered the chopped salad half chipped is what it was, and the water from the lettuce filled the bowl. Get a Salad spinner at Amazon.
My wife got the mussels, small but tender, served in a soup. The Melanesia was burned, covered in greens to hide it. My chicken whatever , was big but who cared. Garlic hides everything. Service was poor, but it was evident they had no help. That is no excuse for what this kitchen put out. It was like take out Bad Italian if their is such a thing.
Greeted as soon as we walked in. Asked if we had a reservation, which we did and we were seated immediately. our server came over and took our drink orders which were very good. Minutes later we ordered appetizers then shortly after ordered our entrees. everything arrived to the table fairly quickly and was all delicious. We were checked on very often and were asked if we enjoyed everything, which we did.
We've been to Pepperoncini numerous times and never have had a bad experience there.
This is one of our favorite places.
Chef Tommy has an amazing take on everything. This place is never a disappointment.
Everything was so wonderful! Staff was accommodating from special diet restrictions and they were happy to do so! Food was fantastic and the restaurant is so CLEAN! Definitely going back!
Private party had upstairs, seated at high top opposite bar area , didn’t mind cause the food is always of our liking. Baked clams are my favorite theirs being the top of scale which all others to be judged. My date thoroughly enjoyed her scallop and monk fish over cappellini, me the two apps baked.clams and scallop and shrimp. Favorite place for our seafood fix. Very nice cocktail bullet old fashion, Superb! Owner chef visits table , nice touch , love helping these small nooks get back to what they do well.0
The monkfish was spectacular.
Owner was our server - he was attentive, kind, welcoming. Filet & seafood was excellent. Potatoes were undercooked but I rarely send items back. If I did - I’m 100% that it would have been fixed. Scallop dish with risotto also superb. Good drinks.
Service was excellent, and they couldn't have been nicer. The appetizer was great, and my salmon was delicious.
The food was amazing. We had seafood and it was flavorful and cooke to perfection. The servers where great and attentive.
Amazing food! Everything was delicious.
Awesome food. Great service.
We had another great dinner at Pepperoncini! Excellent specials as always and the staff is so welcoming!
Great spot with delicious food and drinks. 10/10 would recommend!
Needed a lace to get a quick bite to eat after a weekend volleyball tournament. The waitress and bartender were both very personable. Food was great. Will definitely go back again.
great service and good food prices were high particulary the wine which was only average
Bar tender and waiter were great. Martini made to perfection. Food hot and excellent.
We had an excellent dinner service was great they were very accommodating and we were very happy. We would highly recommend this restaurant do anyone
Food was decent, but service was slow. Place is very small. No waiting area for patrons, so people stood right by our table.
Five star review for the owner, chef, family and staff. The place was recently remodeled and it has a great atmosphere. A must try for a great night out.
The food was fabulous and the staff was extremely friendly . From the time we arrived, drinks were flowing and to the end with homemade deserts.
Would not go back. My husband sent his food back because it was undercooked. He got it back and it was still undercooked. Waitress took it off the bill but still left a bad impression. Other thing were only 2 desserts offered and no coffee available because the machine was broken. Bad experience all around
Food was delicious, as always. Shrimp and lobster fra Diablo was cooked to perfection. Pasta is never over or undercooked!
