Lunch: LONG wait time, but great food

Our group of 7 arrived at 11:30, and ordered at 11:45 - right about the time several other groups (4-15 people each) arrived or ordered. Yet we were the last ones served - at 12:30 or 45 minutes (!) after ordering. Got an "I'm sorry" after I questioned why it took so long, and an extra basket of... read more

We dropped in on a Monday night after not having dined here in quite awhile. It was a quiet night and person acting as hostess was a little slow acknowledging us. (Believe she was responding to some seated patrons.) Our server was very prompt, polite and professional. Ordered wine which arrived promptly while we perused the menu. Menu is mostly... More

This was by far one of the best dishes I've ever had. Chicken wrapped in prosciutto and mozzarella then lightly fried. This prosciutto tasted like fried bacon-ham...need I say more. My wife had the Shrimp and Scallops which was also delicious. I haven't had a bad meal here ever. The service is always professional.

We stopped in for lunch on a Thursday. Ordered two $9 pasta items that included the house salad and bread. Both were very good, however, the bolognese was slightly less tasty than I have had at other Italian restaurants. Service was prompt and they had a good amount of customers seated for lunch. Both the salad and bread were freshly... More

One of the better restaurants in Peoria. Their black and bleu salmon and their chicken rolatini are great. Try the sweet vidalia onion dressing on the house salad which comes with your meal. Wines are half price on Thursday nights. Josh and Amy (owners) provide a wonderful dining experience.

Positive review. Chef Josh can prepare custom meals also, while juggling other meals. All meals are prepared fresh. The red sauce begins each morning requiring hours. Repeat customer reviewing !

Went here on a date night to try something new. We were not disappointed, but could not give it a 5 because for fine dinning because it did not put me over the top that we must come back, but I was very glad we tried it. We may come back again. The calamarii appetizer was very good, but it... More

second visit, this time lunch, still not impressed. There were great choices, reasonable prices.They needed another wait person or bus/helper person. Lunch took over 90 min. Dirty dishes stacked on shelf, tables didnt get cleared. Coffee served was cold, one of the soups was not hot. Server was run ragged. Salmon salad was wonderful, partner loved his sandwich.

PV II is a real gem. The food and service is second to none. It is reassuring to know that your meal didn't come out of a boiling bag like it does in the restaurant chains. Your meal is cooked all by itself, to order, with the freshest ingredients. Chef Josh is always willing to prepare a special meal for... More
