“Great but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our food. We had the steak florentine for two...which was enough for four. The burrata salad was divine. But corkage was $35...which was still better than ordering off the wine list. Our dinner was $200 out the door, for 2 people. Just know you will spend $$$ then enjoy. But I think I would have had an equally good and less expensive meal at Casanova or fandango, our long time favorites.

“Peppoli Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our family ate at Peppoli in August. We love northern Italian food and Peppoli did not disappoint us. It was a feast. Food and service were outstanding. View is nice as well.

“Great service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We went to Peppoli for the food but more so for the experience of the views and to hear the bagpipes at sunset.We were disappointed to be seated next to a pillar so our views were very limited. I'm not sure if this was because we weren't resort guests or not because there were window tables available when we arrived. Also given the volume of the restaurant you were unable to hear the bagpiper outside. Thankfully he stopped into the restaurant for about 15 seconds so it wasn't totally lost. If you set aside all that the service and food were very good! Anthony our server was awesome and recommended great new wines to try in our price point and was also very friendly.

The calamari app was good and the filet lasagna first course was fantastic!! You can split it between two people so it's not too much food. Our second courses of prime rib and chicken were also very good. The wine list is extensive and VERY pricey, with only a few wines under $100. Overall we had a great dinner but without the "experience" we were hoping for.

Afterwards I would recommend going outside to the fire pits and relaxing and having a drink. Also let the guard at 17 mile drive know you are going to dinner at Peppoli so they don't charge you.

“Sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Peppoli is the best Italian restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Page our server is so knowledgeable about everything on the menu and she takes pride in her craft which is perfect service. She knows her wines and we felt safe in her hands. We were seated at a window table overlooking the Pacific coast and we knew we were sitting down to something special with this restaurant choice. To start; the buratta cheese with grilled peaches, heirloom tomatoes, olives, and toast points was an event in itself, complimenting flavors of sweet, and savory had a party in my mouth. My arugula salad with shaved artichokes and parmigiano reggiano tossed in truffle oil brought back memories of Florence with every bite. We both had the Filet mignon special as an entree done gluten free with sautéed spinach and grilled asparagus with a light dusting of fresh horseradish over the filet. The Filet was done perfectly, medium rare. The spinach and asparagus had wonderful flavor. We ended the meal with sorbet and went home perfectly satisfied. The portions are large here and the price is worth the experience. Valet service at the Inn at Spanish bay is the best. Every time I go the say welcome back and I don’t go very often, how do they do that? If you want the best meal in Monterey or Carmel I highly recommend Peppoli in Pebble beach.
