I don't care if it's New York, Chicago, Milan, Rome, or wherever this is the real deal! You want down-home Italian cooking with Frank Sinatra on the side - then Peppino's is for you. Nuf said - eat here. Quality, quantity, and value. I've eaten here since 1984 shortly after the restaurant opened. Joe and Carlo and the family make... More

The 6 page menu can be a bit overwhelming but the food was delicious and the portions huge! You may wind up with enough food for 2-3 meals! Service was polite and very attentive. You won't go broke dining on some good Italian food at Peppinos

I went to Peppino's due to the Tripadvisor reviews of others and I have to say that I was not disappointed.. Excellent Italian food.. Had their Carlo's special pizza which I shared with friends who went with me. I also had the "large" Ceasar's salad and that was a mistake.. It's not just large, it's HUGE!!! Taste was also great...

The staff is always friendly. Some of my favorites: Linguine with fresh clams (white sauce of course), Canneloni with alfredo sauce....the pasta is so delicate. The shrimp far... More

Peppino's on Rockfield is by far the best Italian restaurant we've had the pleasure of dining in. The service has always been attentive, the food is always hot and appetizing, and drinks are good, too! I've ordered the Masticolli (you have to ask if they still make it) and have NEVER been disappointed. The meat sauce is very flavorful, with... More

I've been eating at the original Peppino's on Rockfield for 30 years. I have tried almost every dish and have never been disappointed. In fact, this is the food that I compare to every meal I've tried in countless other Italian Eateries throughout the world. None of them compare to Peppino's.....it is that fantastic. My personal favorite is the Linguini... More

I've been told this is the oldest Peppino's location in Orange County. It's got a real homey. neighborhood feel to it. A friend and I dined later on a Saturday night. All I wanted was pasta with meatballs. I wasn't disappointed. To me, pasta is pasta for the most part. The meatballs were outstanding! Big and full of flavor. The... More

We visited the Foothill Ranch location for a mother's day dinner. Our party of 11 received excellent service from the server to the manager. Good food, large portions and family atmosphere made for a great night.

We used Peppinio's for a recent family reunion. They were very accommodating, food was generous portions, and best of all, they delivered. The food arrived promptly at the appointed time and was delicious as always.
