I recommend this restaurant to everyone who like to eat good meat, drink great wine and very good coffee. Atmosphere was like at home-very nice, funny and calm. Space is traditional and nice arranged.

Me and my husband found the restaurant by chance and it was a nice surprise. Prices are good and the place is charming. Food was tasty, but not exceptional.

The food is some of the best I had all vacation. Like others said the lasagna was too die for. Specials are on the wall written on a blackboard. Reasonably priced (12 euro for a bottle of wine) and portions are perfect. The people that work there were great (making recommendations and laughing at my really bad Italian pronunciations) -...

Had heard good things about this place, having meant to try it on our previous trip to Florence. Pepo is pretty small inside but with a modern feel, chalkboards indicate specials and wine choices, many as low as 9 euro's for a half bottle (comes in carafe at lunch time). The menu itself is typical of the region with pasta... More

We went here for lunch. I had the veggie pasta. My husband had the gnocci. The veggie pasta was too salty. The gnocci didn't have the right flavor or texture unfortunately. I'm giving 3 stars BC they let us in even though they were closing soon for their afternoon break.

Osteria Pepo was recommended to us by our bnb host. The overall experience was excellent. Great service, awesome food and house wine, certainly allowed us to experience local cuisine at its best. We started with anchovies and zucchini flowers, and both were delicious. We ordered the Filet with green sauce and peppercorns and the Peposo, with a side of grilled... More
