Awful, Awful, Awful!!

This has to be the worst restaurant in Delray. We live in town but had not been to Case Di Pepe based on reviews from friends. But, living close by, we decided to give it a chance. Sorry we did.

Small, quaint, romantic restaurant with exceptional service and quite possibly the best Italian food I've ever eaten. The grilled octopus salad was exceptionally tender, well seasoned, and delicious. We had veal parmigiana, chicken Marsala, veal with asparagus, roasted peppers, and Swordfish piccata. All incredible. The most perfectly cooked veal I have ever had. Owner met us out front to thank... More

Nothing to make you feel good about a restaurant then having a 7 o'clock reservation and not being seated until 7:40. Once we were seated, it took another 25 minutes to place our order and another hour for it to be served. The food was ok, but this place needs to get it's operation together. There are far better Italian... More

We went. On a Wednesday night it was fairy busy, it's better to eat outside, since inside has no ambience, atmosphere. The servers were stretched this night. We ordered an appetizer ,calamari it was okay but a little chewy . My wife had linguine with clams (vongle) white wine sauce , this one came out okay but I have had... More

Off the highly trafficked Atlantic Avenue scene this Pineapple Grove restaurant offers the quietest outdoor dining in the area. Service is outstanding and they really care about their customers. We forgot a credit card at the restaurant and they called us 10 minutes after we left.

We tried this restaurant for dinner recently. To our surprise,it wasn't that busy. The decor is very plain. We shared a Cesar salad, then I had the linguini frutti dimare and my wife the shrimp and linguine. The portions of pasta were huge and the shrimp rather soft. We shared a bottle of Wine and finished with cappuccinos. Our server,... More

Tried Casa di Pepe for the first time. Sat outside. At first, it took awhile to get service, but the chef/owner noticed and couldn't have been more accommodating or apologetic. We had the octopus salad and burrata appetizers. Most were outstanding. We then enjoyed the eggplant parm and homemade pasta with vodka sauce. Very happy with everything; we will definitely... More

Been to the restaurant many times. The food is ALWAYS GREAT. JERRY is a great chef and nice guy. You can see he takes pride in his food. He treats his customers like family.

We were seated outside in a table with mixed match folding chairs. I must admit a little bit of a turn off. We had to wait for menus and I am not really sure why as the restaurant at this time was less than 1/2 full. We were finally brought menus one at a time as they became available. Our... More

We have eaten in every Italian restaurant in Delray, and this is the best. Freshest ingredients, clearly freshly made, and always nicely seasoned. The pasta is especially good.
