Waited 35 minutes to get ravioli which were still cold from the fridge inside, but dried up sauce over it, as if it has been sitting in the kitchen for hours. - Not my kind of place.

Pepenero has always been my comfort place to go when the Italian mood strikes. The ambience, friendly staffs, free and yummy breads, foods and wine, all never failed me before until recently. Went to the one in Energy Building (my fave among other locations) and got dissapointed badly! Started from the cold breads, no more bruschetta, super sloooww service (one... More

We were wandering through Jakarta and stepped into this restaurant because it looked inviting. Since it was very hot that day we didn't feel like having a big lunch and just had pasta with a glass of wine. The pasta was great and the wine that was recommended by the italian Chef Michele just excellent but what it really made... More

It is on the ground floor of the building to the left of the entrance. The ambience is ok. The features and fittings are... More

I have been ordering food from Pepenero for more than 2 years and just visited 2 restaurants recently.. One in Kemang and one in Kuningan. Was there for dinner. I had a very good salad and pizza + dessert with a very affordable bottle of wine. The waiters were nice and quick. Will go again ..

I ordered at 9.00pm, for 2 meals and 1 fungi soup. after 20 minutes of waiting, I call the staff and asked nicely "Hello,... More
