When have you heard about a restaurant lasting 30 years and still going strong as ever. Yes, PIERO's is that place and owner of PIERO's Freddie Glusman and second generation, son, Evan Glusman just celebrated PIERO's 30th anniversary. The Celebration party was filled with VIP's and entertainment along with the great food that PIERO's is famous for.

PIERO's has a tremendous history. In 1982, Freddie Glusman opened PIERO's on Karen Avenue. It quickly became a hangout for Las Vegas Locals, Celebrities like the Rat Pack, Politicians, and some of those "Businessmen" with Italian surnames, like the "local color" guys.



The food was and is fresh and good, the service outstanding and the host, Freddie Glusman always, loyal, accommodating and discreet. The atmosphere Freddie created in his restaurant is perfect for quiet business dinners, family celebrations and confidential encounters in an ambiance that is classical Las Vegas.

Five years after opening on Karen Ave., PIERO's moved to its current location located at 355 Convention Center Drive that is within walking distance to the Las Vegas Convention Center and The Strip. PIERO's has seating for 345 diners and has six separate dining rooms.

PIERO's Italian Cuisine boasts many stars, athletes, actors, musicians and everyday people among its clientele. Most of PIERO's employees, including the Chef, Office Manager, Events Coordinator, Maitre d', Beverage Manager, Captains and others, have been with Freddie's restaurant for more than a decade, some closer to the three decades which PIERO's now celebrates.

Musical entertainment by Mark Govi and Carmine Mandia and band entertained throughout the evening. Many well-known names were there among the celebrants, such as Steve Lawrence and Rita Rudner. What a fun and enjoyable evening for all. Congratulations to Freddie and Evan Glusman, and may you enjoy another future 30 year celebration at PIERO's.
