An impromptu family get-together landed my wife and I at this joint last Saturday night. We had high hopes, but this turned out not to be the case. "Service" was a joke. After initially being served iced tea after a fifteen minute wait just to put in the order, we waited another fifteen minutes for an offer of a refill.... More

I went back to PVII for another fine meal last week. Although they have a 2 in their name the are definitely not second rate.The ambiance if average but certainly comfortable. The foot and service has always been superior. I have been going for years and will keep going in the future. If you like Italian you'll like PVII.

Food was tolerable, not out-standing. If you want to eat out at an Italian other than Olive Garden, you may choose this. You won't get unlimited salad and bread sticks tho.. every thing is extra.

A group of friends met for dinner last night night. Our server was very good and our food was excellent. We each had a drink with our dinner, my friends and I had wine and I had vodka. When our bills came I noticed that along with my meal and drink I was charged $1.00 for "rocks". When the waitress... More

My husband took me to PV II for my birthday. It was the first time we have tried this restaurant, but it definitely won't be the last. The food and service was outstanding! The atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. Our server was very nice and attentive. We ordered the meatballs for an appetizer, and they were excellent! Our server... More

I have visited this place for lunch many times, but I never been here for dinner. We started with garlic bread and calamari they were very nice, but my entrée was a little disappointing, I ordered the Eggplant Parmigiana, even though it looked amazing it was cold all the way through, sent it back for it to come back still...

I am surprised at some of the negative reviews. I have eaten here many many times since it opened and have never had a bad experience. The food is always top notch, the Vidalia onion salad dressing is amazing.. The service has always been excellent also. I would have no problem recommending PVII to anyone, in fact I have brought...

Some girlfriends and I ate dinner there. None of us had been before. We got there about 5 till 5:00 and it was not yet open. So, note that it does not open till 5:00. Once inside the atmosphere was very nice with a fireplace and an attentive waitress. The menu had several upscale Italian choices, therefore it was a... More

I've been coming to PV2 since it was the original Pontivecchio's. I've always loved the food. Had dinner there last night and was sorry to see it seems to be going downhill. The tablecloth had crumbs and a smear right where my plate would be; it had not been changed between customers. The paint on the walls is peeling where... More

I can't say enough about PVII, this place is fantastic! The waitstaff is friendly and courteous, and the food is outstanding. It's not a "quick" place to grab dinner before hustling to a movie, but if you want to eat some outstanding Italian food and have a conversation with a date, friends, family, etc., this is the place!

Thank Tobrooksie
