I tried Pepenero at BSD and the one in Bali. Both tastes similar, which is good, but the one in BSD offers more choices of gelato flavors. I like their pasta and calzone, but not the gnocchi. The service was pretty good, the waitress explains the menu pretty well. I must say that this is not the best Italian restaurant... More

My local girlfriend I walked in on a busy Friday evening without reservations, to be greeted by a courteous manager who quickly turned around a table and made us feel welcome. The service was friendly and fairly quick to be on a busy Friday evening. While the options on the menu are quite standard , the pizza and the fresh... More

Decided to head to The outlet at colony for dinner today....was craving for a burger and asked the staff for a recommendation....he suggested to order the Panino Cotoletta. Didn't wait for as long as I did previously for my burger to be served. The bread is soft and "properly browned"...(See picture that I will attach). And The chicken was cooked... More

Managed to take some time off work to head down this restaurant for my dinner. This is my first time coming to the restaurant after reading mix reviews online. So, i had to see it to believe it, experience to confirm it and taste it to believe it. When we arrived, there were probably around four tables occupied. We stood... More

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

I'm having every day a lunch time at Pepenero restaurant in Alamanda Tower. In one word I can say "great" italian food and it looks at me to stay in my Italy because the chef Michele is cooking fantastic italian dishes. In Pepenero of Alamanda Tower in Jakarta I'm not missing the italian food and I can note the difference... 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
