“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I drive by this restaurant everyday and have alway's wanted to try it. I knew by the size I would need a reservation and we are usually making plans last minute. Finally I made one and dinner was so good we had dinner there the very next night! Looking forward to dining there again soon. Don't miss this gem on the outer path of Kirkwood.

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Our favorite Italian restaurant in St. Louis was Gian Peppes, on The Hill. He closed in 2001 when I guess he got tired of cooking and we were most disappointed. Just learned that he has reopened in Kirkwood and we tried the restaurant last Saturday night with 3 couples. What amazing food Peppe can cook--one special pasta dish was average, the other 5 meals were beyond exceptional. We decided that Peppe till cooks the very best Italian food in St. Louis. The old house is small and the dining room is noisy, but not as noisy as some people have commented. Our table of six could easily talk with each other but there was certainly background noise. However, the incredible food (and great wine choices) have easily made this our favorite Italian restaurant. I am looking forward to returning for dinner, trying their lunch and in warmer weather, the outdoor seating.

“Noisy place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

When this small restaurant is filled, the noise is so deafening it is difficult to have a conversation with a party of 4 and it's impossible at a table of 6. While the food is good quality and the decor beautiful, the noise is such a problem I have little desire to return.

“Extremely intimate sport with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you want an excellent, yet moderately priced italian lunch or dinner....this is the place. Very small, with probably less than 20 tables, yet supersized with quality and service. A nice wine list adds to the pleasure. Small outdoor garden dining area adds to the ambience during good weather. Try the "Pepe Salad"....the epitome of a delicious italian salad. Parking lot on backside (east) of restaurant and plenty of street parking.

“Awesome Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Since my grandson requested eating at Peppe's Apt 2 while I was in town for his 11th birthday, we had lunch there on a Friday afternoon. The chef was very accommodating, preparing dishes that were not on the luncheon menu. Our party of 6 was delighted with their choices. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in each bite. This restaurant never disappoints!
