Great athmosphere and wonderful food. Polite and attentive staff, everyone from hostess to waiters and owner/head waiter. The sliced sirloin was probably one of the best meat dishes we have ever had. Close to Canal street subway, 2 min walk towards Tribeca. This restaurant was recommended to us by a random couple we met while walking towards Tribeca. They said... More

Easy access restaurant with outside seating and 2 indoor seating areas. Pasta was very fresh and good tasting. Service was top notch. We had very good bottled Italian beer. Nice wine and port. Good desserts. I particularly enjoyed the flour less chocolate cake. The bread and tomato flan concoction was very nice. We had the antipasto appetizer as well as... More

We heard a lot about this place before coming here. The food was good but not outstanding. Friendly service and a great romantic sidewalk. It was just a bit too expensive for what they offered.

We had walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and into Tribeca. Our friends recommended this place and at 11:00pm why not try it. We sat on the sidewalk. The service was perfect. An Italian head waiter, who took our order and supervised a half dozen servers who made sure our water glasses were never empty and everything arrived on time and... More

Very tiny restaurant in Tribeca. Has outdoor seating with two tables outside by the main door. We sat at the corner table outside upstairs. It was very private and quiet but was just a little cramped. However, we selected this table because of the privacy. Our waiter was extremely friendly and from Italy. We had a daily special salad of... More

Pepolino is a small restaurant in Tribeca that is owned by 2 guys from Italy. Both times we have been here we have been waited on by young men from Italy. They were both very personable & loved explaining items on the menu. You feel as if you have been transported to Florence when dining here. The tomato flan they... More

I had a salad and a pasta dish. Most of their pasta are home made except for one. They cared enough to let me know which one. It was a nice summer day and I sat outside by the sidewalk. Very nice and quaint. Food came fast and was very nice. Service was friendly and attentive with good recommendations. Will... More

Ate here recently for dinner and had the veal ragu and a daily special of ricotta stuffed figs, prosciutto, and salad. The ricotta stuffed figs were amazing, fresh sweet figs with a subtle ricotta cream. That mixed well with the salty prosciutto and salad. The veal ragu was good, with properly cooked noodles and a good veal ragu. I have... More

Beautiful day in NYC! Happened upon a cute little cafe with an inviting sidewalk. We enjoyed ice cold Peroni beer and an appetizer of fried calamari and shrimp--lightly dusted in cornmeal, tender and hot on a bed of diced tomatoes in olive oil, basil and garlic. Server was very friendly!

Four of us dined at Pepolino last night. The food was extraordinary--some of the best I've had since dining in Tuscany last fall. Whatever you choose, don't miss at least a half portion of pasta. There are lots of choices including braised rabbit and wild boar. Now, that's authentic Italian. And there are plenty of salads, entrees, and desserts to... More
