“Solid Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Found this place online, which was good, as it's not really located somewhere you would otherwise go.

Friendly and attentive service, good menu choices and good wine choices. The food was of a good standard nothing remarkable. The interior is nice and quaint and quite different from what you may think from outside. I would say worth a visit if you're in the area but perhaps not somewhere to go out of your way to visit. Reasonably priced too, and the portion sizes were on the large size.

“Love this place - can't get enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I've visited Pepolino each trip to NYC since stumbling across this restaurant. The and ambience/vibe is very quaint, the food is truly delicious & fresh. Price is reasonable given its NY so be sure to add this to your 'must eat' list if in the city!

“Pretty good Italian, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Nice Italian restaurant, Good basic Italian food (maybe slightly expensive for what it was), but worth a try

“Pepolino was refreshing to what home made tastes like!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Was invited to Pepolino Ristorante by very close friends and knowing I own an Italian Ristorante in Aruba rated as the #1 Italian eatery on the Island, my friends made sure to take me where they visit regularly and I must say if not the best, for sure among the top Italian Ristorantes in NY.
Everything tasted very good & fresh, service was promptly and accommodating.
Will definitely recommend and return to Pepolino on all my next visits to NY.
