I've been a regular at Peppino's for a long time. Great food and excellent service. They've been there for over 30 years so you know they're doing it right to keep people coming back throughout the downturns.

I loved the Ravoli with Alfredo Sauce! It was to die for. The rest of the group loved the lasagna, we had to go back 2 days in a row for it. Good price point and location.

I love the veal picatta, my wife loves the lazagna. Can't be beat. It's not cheap, but worth it because the portions are huge. We usually have leftovers. Have never been disappointed here. Love the bread they serve as soon as you are seated.

The food is consistently good at Peppinos. They are pet friendly and will let you bring a good dog if you eat out on the patio.
