Love this building and location. If walls could talk. Oh what history is here! Beautiful bar area. Patio is nice but tonight we are dining inside. Second visit to Peirano's with my husband. First was a Sunday afternoon for a light lunch. Today it was for a happy hour dinner. Great Happy Hour options and since it was Thursday, they... More

We were looking for somewhere to have a late breakfast on a Saturday and most of the other restaurants on Main St didn't open until 11:30. Peirano's was open and so we went in. It was a lovely breakfast, very pleasant server and lovely blueberry pancakes. Lots and lots of coffee (and I can drink lots of coffee). Nicely decorated,... More

Sunday's are a bit of a struggle for me working in retail I get assorted days off during the week. When a Sunday off comes around I tend to run slow and enjoy my down time. That being said Sunday lunch works better than breakfast. Wanted to try peiranos and was greatly rewarded. It wasn't as busy as many of... More

Our family was wandering around downtown trying to decide where to eat and when we got to the end of the street, there was Peirano's. I was annoyed by the indecisiveness of my family to choose a place and getting hungrier by the minute, so I said, let's go here. It was the best decision I made that entire day.... More

We hadn't been here for a long time so we gave it another try. The food was good and they have an interesting menu. Good selection of tapas. The Portabello mushrooms were amazing. The prices are a little high for dinner, especially the chicken option, but good prices on appetizers. Service was just ok.

Came in to visit a fabulous bartender who has served me in the past, Kristy. In addition to a superb vodka martini, she convinced me to get a little brunch. Chiliquiles were awesome and reminded me of my first Chiliquiles in PV about a year ago.

Nice servers, did an ok job. Got the beer order wrong, I asked for an 805, the wife wanted an IPA, we both got IPA. Also the wife ordered a wrap that the menu said had avocado, there was none in her order. She asked the server, she said she would check, but never responded, we checked the menu on... More

My husband and I are always looking for a new restaurant, we decided to try Peirano's and i am so glad we did. I had the short rib dinner and my husband had the lamb kabobs, the presentation was beautiful and the food was so delicious. I have had many dinners in my time, but never anything like this. "Just...

We split a Peirano's burger and a bowl of crab bisque for lunch. Great burger and lovely waitress. A little expensive, one hamburger with fruit or fries, bowl of crab bisque , one diet coke and one iced tea was $32.25 including tax. I love it when I find a place with good ambiance. We sat inside but the outside... More

the group I was with failed to book a place for dinner and the place they wanted to go to was fully booked and I called Peiranos to see if they had availability. Sanaa who answered the phone said she would make room for us. Sure enough, we got there and she put tables together for us and we ordered... More
