“Very good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very good food at good prices. They also have a nice Happy Hour. Very nice atmosphere ... I just wish the bar area was a little bigger.

“Good food at a reasonable price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have eaten here several times and most of the time the food has been good.The bar area is kind of small which makes it hard to relax and have a cocktail before dinner.The service was ok, it could have been better.It seemed to take a while to get our dinners.When the dinners arrived at the table they were cooked as ordered and were good. Yes I would eat here again .It is not the best value but by no means the worst value.

“Fun night with Friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

It is always a pleasure when you have a reservation and your table is ready when you arrive.Our friends from Brooklyn have eaten at many Italian resturants and were impressed with the quality and portion size at Piacone's. The high ceilings and brick walls create a special ambiance. Our waitress was most engaging and service on a busy Saturday night could not have been better. My son's calamari and shrimp dish was excellant. My soft shell crab picatta was also outstanding. There are reasonably priced wine options as well as delicious specialty drinks. The tiramisu was a wonderful compliment to a delightful evening. Piancone's has a great early bird price fix worth checking out.

“Looking for the Old Piancone cuisine and I thinkit's back, we plan on more dinners to confirm.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

Growing up i th eshore area and having experienced the original Piancone's in Bradley Beach over a decade ago, I was thrilled to learn about this new restaurant last summer. We were finally able to try it out with friends for dinner on a Sunday. The owners did a great job on makling the decor feel comfortable and welcoming. The bartender was freidnly and offered his favs. We tried a delish salad special and enjoyed our entress. Their menu has some nice options -0 with a little something for whatever your int he mood for but not a text book of pages to review. We plan on making more trips back. They have a back pation area too as well as a parking lot right behind the builidng for convenience.

“Good Lunch Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2010

The pasta with eggplant was excellent and portions are huge. The meatball sandwich was extremely homemade tasting and flavorful. The bread was fresh baked too. At lunch, this restaurant is a tremendous value. I have not visited for dinner.
