Piro’s in North Wildwood has been a dining tradition since 1955 when they first opened. Co-Owners and siblings, Pat & Marie Piro say that their parents had an idea for a great Italian restaurant and made it happen. Since its opening days, Piro’s has only gotten better and better with each passing year. The Piro Family, now with almost 60 years under their belts, has established many friendships throughout the way, and gained many regular guests. Here the food is plentiful and delicious, as well as unrivaled so much so that a reservation is strongly recommended no matter when you come.
One important factor that sets this restaurant apart from others is its effort to be consistent yet original. Piro’s has recently introduced new menu options to its already renowned selection of dishes. They now offer soft shell crabs daily and they make their own fresh mozzarella cheese. New to the appetizer menu are made-to-order fried homemade meatballs called “Polpette” served with long hots and derived from an Old Italian tradition of eating meatballs pan fried and straight out of the oven.
Piro’s features traditional Italian dishes and sauces and its famous Blue Ribbon Crab and Spinach Chowder are always available! Chef specialties include a 14 oz. Veal Chop, Stuffed Flounder, Veal Pasquale, Homemade Dynamite Lasagna, Fresh Seafood and Sunday Gravy. Osso Buco Milanese is served on Saturdays and may be reserved in advance. Additions to the menu are offered on a daily basis as well. They offer a full bar and the best wine list on the island, specializing in California, Oregon, and Italian wines. Meet your friends at the Little Club Wine Bar where 15 plus wines are offered by the glass. The $10.00 a bottle Monday Night is unbeatable and has become increasingly popular throughout the years!
