Rustic and amazing value

Went Thursday evening with a friends who raves about this place. It's just how I like an Italian restaurant to feel, quaint, rustic with a lovely ambiance. We had booked our table for 7pm and it was quite busy when we got there. We had a starter, I had the mussels in arabiatta sauce and my friend... read more

The best Italian restaurant I've ever visited - bar none. the food was simply superb and the service was nothing short of excellent, Most of the food is halal, so its a great place for Muslims to eat too, although you may want to check with the waiter on the halal options before ordering. Cooking sea food is always a... More

The decor in this place seems a bit dated, paint peeling from the radiators and dust covering ledges. The food was good, nothing to shout about but it was nice. Lovely service, very tentative to your needs, but I believe there's much better Italians in South Shields.

Decided to go out for a meal for Valentines Night and once again we choose Piero's, and once again can only reflect a first class service from entering the door to leaving it, and once again received first class service from really friendly staff and yet again the steak was cooked to perfection the whole night was top drawer.

I love this little restaurant but for various reasons, not least of which is not being able to get baby sitters for 3, we do t get there as often as we'd like For the first time for 2 years I braved going with my eldest for her mums birthday. The staff were so pleased to welcome us in to... More

This is our sixth or seventh visit to Piero's and neither I or my family have ever noticed a drop in quality or service. Almost the reverse in fact! The staff are exceedingly friendly and couldn't do enough for you whether the resteraunt is busy or quiet. Please give this place a go, it is well worth your patronage and... More

Pieros is worth a visit. The menu is not very adventurous but they stick to the basics and generally do them quite well. The bruschetta is not very authentic, too little garlic and hold the olives! Chicken dishes were well cooked and flavoured and did not dry out which can happen all too often. All in all, we found it... More

This used to be a really good restaurant. Don't know what happened. Chicken and prawns were over cooked and dishes were basic and unimaginative. Won't be going back in a hurry.

On reading the 2 of the 3 reviews opposite I cannot believe that these people have eaten in the same Pieros restaurant as I have. Food and service are superb. Did lleanaF or tonytaylo talk to the staff on the night about their complaint, if not why not. I have been going to this restaurant regularly, for 7 years, and... More
