My favorite Italian Restaurant in the USA. Best Baked Clams, Linguine with Clam Sauce, Stuffed Artichokes, Veal parmagiana.. An incredible house salad. Served family style they have huge portions that can feed for. I have tried everything on the menu for the last 50 years and nothing comes close to this family style restaurant. Great service too....

Honestly people talk about Don Peppes and they are not lying. It's really fantastic New York old school Italian food. The baked clams are just fantastic. Can't go wrong with the dishes and definitly get one order of the linguine and white clam sauce for the table. Really if your in town just go.

Don Peppe's is always quite a scene. No reservations, cash only, gigantic portions, home-made wine. I have been eating here for twenty years - never a bad meal. Always fun.

The pasta was perfect, blended in great marinara and melted cheese. The chicken u could easily cut with a fork. It was thin... More
