I have yet to try anything I didn't enjoy. While the portion sizes are Italian-huge, the quality and variety is what keeps bringing us back. The sauces taste home-made, the pastas are al dente, the meatballs and sausages taste old world good. And the music adds the finishing touch.

The food is always consistently delicious. We love the pizza, lasagna, eggplant parmesean, and cannolini are our favorites. The service is always friendly and efficient. Very reasonable prices. The restaurant is very small and noisy, but we go here for the great food.

I've eaten at some of the finest Italian restaurants in the world so I don't expect a a similar experience in the USA but I know average Italian food when I taste it. This is simply average. A girlfriend and I had lunch here and I ordered a Caprese salad and Pasta Carbonara. Right away I was disappointed. The Caprese... More

Sausage rolls, chicken mushroom pasta, and roasted egg plant. A feast, with lots of wine for a family celebration. The food was really good. We couldn't fault it.

We headed out to a favorite spot for dinner, only to be told the wait was an hour. So one person in our party remembered an Italian place close by. She couldn't remember the name but we found it and it was Peppinos. We had a 5 minute wait for a table, and witnessed people leaving with huge "to go"... More

Decided to go to this location for some pizza with a few friends of mine. Place has been really cleaned up since my last visit. We sat on the Patio which is now enclosed for the colder winter months. Food was great like usual and service was outstanding. I will start coming here more often! :)

Went here last month for dinner with my family. We eat here about once a week. Food was great and Jimmy is always fun to talk to. Place is very clean and they updated their patio.

My family and I decided to try this resturant after a few years of driving past it. Now I wish I hadn't waited so long. We shared a pizza and salad and my Mother got manacoti. Everything was delicious!! The waiter was exceptionally good, I wish I remembered his name.

Family run, great service and affordable good food. They will make it any way you ask if they can. Its a hidden gem that doesn't look like much on the outside.

Good food, but the place is terribly dirty. I haven't been able to go back since I found three hairs in my shrimp pasta. If they could clean the place up and put on hair nets, I would reconsider. Zen Shushi next door is WONDERFUL!
