Delighted to reach this out of the way place!

We had been recommended this place by a couple of people - one Italian in London, one Brit in Italy - and decided to take the opportunity on a very rainy evening. Not something I would recommend as the road up is narrow and steep. The restaurant was light and airy tho and a relief to arrive there... read more

The setting we found somewhat mis matched but we could still see the humor and we could appreciate it was a bold and daring decor. first impression was good. The food was the letdown because it was just not as great as we were thinking it would be. things were a little bland and sometimes a littel too cold to... More

You pay 25 euro for fixed menu - we've had 10 antipasti, two primos (both pasta pasta), one secondo (from the choice of two meat dishes) and two desserts. You can bring your own wine (the boss likes to taste whatever you brought) or drink as much of their (quite nice, by the way) house wine/water as you like. The... More

Very good restaurant, formula is one menu, eur 25 per person incl wine and water. You can bring your own wine if you do not want to drink the houwse wine. Location is romantic, on the hill of the town, in the old part.

The owner is a charming man and he squeezed the seven of us in when i called to book a couple of hours before. We'd been to the restaurant in 2006 under different ownership - it did pretty good steak but wasn't very inspiring. It was 30 Euros a head. Under new opwnership it is a revelation. We paid 25...

Not often have I seen restaurants with such a particular, artful decor. Everything has been personally chosen by owner Michele Alesiani, and there is nothing wrong with his taste. There is both inside and outside seating, and the restaurant is quiet and private, off the tourist-ridden main street. The menu is fixed and made with simple ingredients, heavy on season's... More

It is located in Cupra Alta which is a steep walk from Cupra Maritima but is definitely worth going for it. They only serve a set menu for a fixed and very low price , including wine and water. I lost count but we had at least 9 different dishes. All of excellent quality and presented very nicely. If you... More

This was our second visit to Pepe Nero and it was just as good as the first time. We first visited in early May and had a table inside this time all the tables were laid outside giving it a wonderful setting to sit on a beautiful warm evening. There is only a single menu for the day at a... More
