Piero's in Huntingdon Valley

Came across this name looking for a BYOB in the Huntingdon Valley area, but a search of Chow came up empty. Anyone eaten at Piero's and want to talk about it?

  1. We've been a few times. It's good and the atmosphere is nice.

    FWIW, everyone seems to have a favorite Italian restaurant they think is outstanding, but most places are average. Average isn't bad, but nobody wants to admit they like average food. The fact is, it's not that difficult to make good food. Use fresh ingredients, a decent recipe with proper seaonings and cook it correctly. That's Piero's.

    1. Tavolo is always the BYO that comes to mind when it comes to the Huntingdon Valley area. Have you been there?

        We've also been to Tavolo a few times. It's good and the atmosphere is nice. :) It's about in the same price range as Piero's and both are BYOB.

          No, have not been to Tavolo. Sounds like you think it's better than Piero's? I'm open to pretty much anything in the area, since it's been a long time since I've lived in that area, and the reason I'm looking for a place there is that it's in the area where my son lives. I'm taking him out for his birthday, which has become my gift to him each year. We like BYOB!!

            I would defer to George2 who has been to both. I have not been to Piero's but have been to Tavolo and it was good not great. I remember some hand made pasta and a good fish dish. It has been some time.

              Tavolo is better and Augusto's their sister restaurant in Warminster is also good and BYOB.

              1. re: george2

                I've been to Augusto's. I wasn't aware that there was a "sister restaurant". Augusto's is pretty good, with very good service. Sounds like it'll be Tavolo, although my son may opt for Augusto's since it's closer to his home. I'm OK with either.
                Thanks for the info george 2 - and everyone else!

                  I like the atmosphere at Tavolo better than at Augusto's.

                    That's true. Tavolo is newer and being in a former house there's more natural light.

                      1. re: bucksguy14

                        Both about the same, pretty quiet, especially for a byob.
