First visit, very good overall

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... read 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

PV II is our go-to restaurant. They have delicious lunch dishes, along with an assortment of soups, salads, and sandwiches (sorry, no burgers). Dinner menu has even more wonderful dishes to pick from. Something for everyone.

We had to wait a little bit to be seated even though the place was not very busy. The staff was very helpful. The food was amazing, the duck pasta was exquisite and the ravioli were delicious as well.

I was very disappointed in my soup selection at PV II in Peoria last night. Their food is usually outstanding, but the parmesan and egg soup was just awful. The broth was very thin, watery and tasteless, and the parmesan and egg dumplings were very dry and tasteless, as well. There was a lot of spinach floating in it. My... More

Their pastas are one of the best in town. It is a small place, but has it's own character and charm. Quite frankly, their veggie pastas are a delight! Must try the orange sauce!!
