Poor Imitation of Italian

PEPeNERO is a chain of Italian restaurants in Jakarta. The version of Pep & Nero in Kuningan is in the Menara Kaya building on the main drag, Jl. H. R. Rasuna Said practically opposite Raya Kuningan. It is on the ground floor of the building to the left of the entrance. The ambience is ok... read 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've been at pepenero SCBD several times, the food taste worse with each visit. I used to dig the pork ribs and gelato. I went there last week. They seriously need to add more well-trained staffs. 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

I have been there many times. Pizza is ok considering that we are not in Italy. They were giving a nice bread basket as appetizer, they are still doing it but it is not good as it was couple of months ago. I had pizza delivery many times and it is still ok but, of course, pizza get cold. I... More

This is the second time we dined in at Pepenero Energy Building suffered from bad services. The resto is obviously understaffed. We have to raise our hands, clap, yell, still no response from the waitresses. The bell they put on each table is completely useless. I have to walk to the cashier's counter to ask our order whereabouts after 40... More

This is the best Italian in South Jakarta. Food, drink, service excellent. Once drinks are ordered they bring a big basket of the most amazing Italian rolls & breads to dip in balsamic & oil mix. Excellent for a special occasion as it can be a bit pricey .

First of all, I WAS a regular at the Pondok Indah for almost 5 years, since my office was very close to it. I tried other outlets, they were always less appetizing, but never the less, still okay. I just preferred the PI outlet, cause I thought it tasted really nice. Since, last November, I was in Kuningan and the... More

The meals are so good here and best of all they are good priced! Restaurant decor and ambient is superb. The only suggestion I can make is more training to staff to be more knowledgeable on menu.

Me and my husband used to enjoy having lunch/dinner in this restaurant, we used to have it at Menara Karya. Then Pepenero open their branch at The Energy/Graha Niaga Building, we were so excited knowing our fav resto has opened in his office. I tried my regulars (pastas and pizzas), and they were terrible (both taste and servings), the appetizers... More
