Conventional wisdom has it that Piero's, a local family owned Italian bistro, is exactly the type of place to be killed off by Olive Garden, Macaroni Grill, and other chain Italian restaurants. If that is the case, please hurry up with this much needed euthanasia. Both entrees were of poor quality; the ravioli in particular resembled Chef Boyardee. The origins... More

After being unable to find a restaurant in Lititz this Friday night with a wait under 2 hours, my wife and I tried something closer to home at Piero's. The 70's decorum aside, we were optimistic given how hungry we were. So we tried to ignore the huge dusty bookshelf with the old television propped on top blaring Fox News... More

I really appreciated that this restaurant was able to accomidate a group of 30 on a Friday night with little notice. A group of us decided to get together after my grandfathers funeral and we all headed to Piero's. They were very gracious and the food was great as well!

Unfortunately we spend over $30 on food that wasn't worth $10. The lobster bisque was more like water from the sea and the burgers could not possibly be made from real meat. First and last for us. No wonder the place was dead during our visit.

It's often difficult if not impossible to get a seat at a good restaurant at many locations in Lancaster County on a Friday evening between 5 & 7 p.m. but last night at Piero's the patrons were noticeably absent. The Tuscan interior design probably looked great in 1970 but now needs a major update. There was a sign posted about... More

From the outside the restaraunt looks nice. That's where the good stops. Inside it has a cafeteria like atmosphere. The waitress that we had was very poor in both attitude and service. The breadsticks that they bring before the dinner were horribly stale and tasteless. I ordered the dish that was suppose to contain 3 different Italian dishes. When I... More

The Italian food they serve has to be frozen. It is bland and has no flavor. At best, the sandwiches are ok, and probably your best bet to order. I live locally and have eaten here several times over the years. Nothing has changed in the past 10 years. Unfortunately there aren't very many other options in close proximity. Drive... More

Akron PA. is a town that reminds me of Tom Waits singing about Putnam County..."Things were always kind of quiet in Putnam County..." Even though this town is nowhere near Putnam County except in spirit. Anyway, this is one of the few restaurants in Akron here in the quiet heart of Amish Country.It has an odd liquor thing going in... More
