Dining at Pepollino Tribeca was an unexpected treat! I couldn't believe that I'd never heard of this fine NYC restaurant before. We were greeted with a lovely setting on a quiet corner, one step off of Canal Street/Chinatown with a very European outdoor cafe. The interior transplanted me to Tuscany.We loved the atmosphere! The food and service were excellent. I... More

Had a lovely main course only meal here the other night. We ordered the veal and ricotta meat balls (with two potatoes and vegetables) and the veal ragu pasta. The meatballs were amazing and the pasta very nice. However, our meal came within 5 minutes of ordering so we didn't have a massive amount of time to enjoy our position... More

This authentic Tuscan Italian restaurant in TriBeCa is my favorite restaurant in New York. I have sent scores of people here for life celebrations, client meetings, or special dates. Their feedback is unanimous!... Pepolino is a top-rate experience all around! I have tried almost everything on the menu, and I have not had one single disappointment. The staff is supremely... More

We went to this restaurant as it was the most highly rated in TriBeCa on Trip advisor. Whilst nothing was wrong with anything, Service, food cost etc the whole experience was not exceptional. I would say it was OK and would never let you down, it did not excite.

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
