Food is ALWAYS good

We eat at Peppino's regularly. They have raised their prices a bit, but it is still great food and friendly service. I love their authentic Pizza. Veal. They have a couple of spectacular shrimp dishes. I've never had a bad meal there. Typical meat dish is around $19. Shrimp dishes around $23... read more

Went in on a Tuesday night after a long day to grab a pizza. Dough was good but the ingredients were flavorless and way to much surface oil. We had to use several napkins to soak up the excess oil! Granted we only tried the pizza but if that's what you're looking for then I wouldn't recommend this place. I... More

Picked up a pizza on the way home, and while my mom and I were waiting, they asked us to sit down and offered us soda or water. The girl that took our order was very sweet with my mom, I greatly appreciated it.

Peppinos restaurants are always great, but they do vary by locations. My favorite dish is the sausage rolls- Aliso Viejo is by far the best for custom orders and the service is fantansic.

While we rarely eat-in here, we take-out their Carlos pizza about once a month. It is a large flat thin crust pizza - Very authentic to Italy --a fine home-made tomato sauce and if you want, anchovies. When we have eaten at the restaurant the service is warm, friendly and prompt. The food again is generous. It really has the... More

We have been eating here for years and years, love Peppino's!! We do a lot of to go, the service is always great the chefs even smile and say hello. Everything is delicious, my husband is addicted to the spaghetti with marinara and mushrooms. You can't go wrong with anything you order.

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
