Neutral on atmosphere - you go for the food. Good quality, competitively priced (I didn't say inexpensive, because it isn't). Pizza is excellent. I love the veal. It's all freshly made, right before your eyes. Pasta is good. Cannelloni. Sausage rolls. It's all good. They are redoing their rear patio area before the winter so that it is attractive to... More

The restaurant is always busy, which is a good sign. The meals are huge and the prices are pretty good. I always get there early.

I've never tried on-line take out ordering here before - It works perfectly! The Pizza was ready exactly as ordered. Try the meatball and tomato combination! Delicious!!! And I do love the crust.

Peppinos is always a safe bet. This location is not fancy - it is a crowded small place wrapped around the kitchen but the food is wonderful. The peppino bread is something that you can't get other places- goodies wrapped in pizza dough- yum. This time around we had pizza- chicken alfraedo which was delish!

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

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. Pasta around $13. We always eat in and... More
