A few months ago we had to unfortunately place my mom in a nursing home, which is located in Branford. When my husband and I visit her later in the afternoon, we do dinner out. After going to our usual places, Eli's, SBC, WB Carson, we decided to try this little pizzeria. WOW! The fresh bread served with the meals... More

The family that runs this "pizza joint" doesn't know the meaning of hospitality. The service is absolutely terrible! They all have attitudes. I litterly watched the kitchen staff handle my salad with bare hands! HEALTH CODE VIOLATION! The son is a punk! Told me to go somewhere else when I had a reasonable complaint. Food was luke warm,pasta overcooked,tasteless tomato... More

Our group ordered several pizzas that were good. However, prior to ordering our food we asked for tea since it was a cold day. The tea never arrived. We asked for bread with our salad that too never arrived. The server was more interested in talking with his friends than providing service to us. He never asked if we wanted... More

I have tried Italian food all over Connecticut and I have to say this is one of the BEST in the state. Pizza is outstanding and so are the pasta dishes (especially the penne alla vodka). Great service and the owner Amato is wonderful!

There is not one bad item on this menu. From pizzas to entrees to subs to wrap. Amato has a great personality and makes the experience one to remember

This is our "go to" place when we want something nice without breaking the bank. I have never gotten a bad meal and mostly they were outstanding, We always get treated like we are special, and we also order their pizza for take out all the time. The fried ravioli app was to die for, I wanted to lick the... More

I had been a frequent customer of Pepe & Rose until last night. I ordered my usual take out and when I got home discovered that instead of the sloppy lasagna I was given ziti. I called the store to let them know. Instead I was put on hold for 5 minutes and ignored. I called back and asked to... More

Very good pizza. Fresh ingredients. Delicious sauce. Delivery is fast. Everything is great except the price...about 15-20% higher than their competition....but pizza has gone up everywhere...it was once a cheap alternative to cooking at home...now it has become a treat or special occasion meal.

This was my second time there and the first time was just as good. The pizza margherita is amazing!!! Also, the place is really cute and the staff are really nice and... More

Wow, what a meal Steve and I had. Chicken Florentine and Chicken Don Pepe -- the best we've had in years and years. Service: Exceptional Food: Superior Ambiance: Warm and welcoming. Value: Affordable meals, wine and bear, very generous portions. Recommended: the pizza and the eggplant parm. We'll undoubtedly be among the regulars from now on. And for the record,... More
