“Disappointing”
Review of Piestro

Piestro
Ranked #36 of 100 Restaurants in Dartmouth
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 5, 2018 via mobile

We visited here on Easter Saturday, three adults and one child. We felt that maybe it hadn’t been open long as service was rather bitty and the two front of house staff seemed to be muddled with which table was having what!
We ordered coffee/tea but were told they only had full fat milk which my daughter can’t drink so she ended up going to find a takeaway coffee elsewhere and bringing it back to the restaurant.
We ordered three soups at £5.95 (our daughter/granddaughter decided not to eat) which were described as ‘piping hot’ but they were served in such huge flat bowls and there was less than half an inch of soup in each dish so it was just lukewarm. It was served with the thinnest slice of bread from an uncut loaf cut in two. When my sister in law mentioned the small portion size we were told it was in a big bowl which was why it didn’t look much but the amount in there would not even have half filled an average bowl.
I don’t know what their other meals were like but from our point of view this was a very disappointing lunch and we certainly won’t be returning.

This restaurant has great homemade food, we had a great beef stew which was delicious. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next day and had Bishops pie and Turkey and Cranberry.
If we go to Dartmouth again it is where we will be heading

Home made food cooked with care and thought. I started with the soup of the day it was a rustic leek and potato with home make bread. Main pie was the ‘Dartmouth’ with delicious Mutton, orange zest and apricot flavours. Bang on!

We stumbled across Piestro during our recent stay in Dartmouth, It was a cold evening in March and not many people were about. What interested us was that everything is home cooked.
We both ordered a different pie, I went for The Postie (steak and blue Cheese) and my wife went for the steak and ale. Both were delicious, came with real chips and vegetables.
What is nice to see is that these are proper pies and are not casseroles with a puff pastry lid.
There were many different pies to choose from and they even had vegetarian options. Service was very good and it was nice to hear from the chef how the pies were made.
