We decided to go here for lunch as it had good reviews. When we got there we were a bit doubtful though because there was just one other couple in there but 30 minutes later the place was full. Lovely lunch beautifully cooked and nice and hot. We chose pork fillet with a balsamic glaze which was tender and sweet... More

This was a very cute restaurant with friendly service and a welcome glass of Prosecco which was a nice touch. Group of 3 all had pasta which was ok for an easy cheap dinner but we have come to expect more flavour in our Italian dishes so came away a little disappointed.

We tried to get in here Friday night but the line was out the door so we made reservations for Saturday night and went to Za Za's instead for a mediocre meal. Pepo has a brightly lit interior and terrific food. Our daughters ordered cream of pumpkin soup. When I threw a gnocchi in a spoonful from my wife's appetizer,... More

One of the best restaurants we ate at in Florence. Make reservations as this place fills up quickly. Good web site with menu. The staff was very friendly. We were given a free glass of champagne when seated. The menu is is Italian and English. The fried chicken/rabbit/vegetables dish was excellent as was the Peposo (beef stew in black pepper... More

My wife and I came across Osteria Pepo this yea despite the fact we have been to Florence many times (just because the restaurant we liked changed the ownership this year). The place is very busy, we came shortly after 7pm and they were full already. The only downside - the house wine is served in bottles and is quite... More

We happened across this restaurant when wandering around the Central Market. There is a board menu and wine list as well as a regular menu. The zucchini flower appetizer from the board menu was so awesome we came back to the restaurant a second time and it was just as good. For mains had the papardelle with wild boar ragu,... More

This place is located very close to the central market next to many restaurants. Service was very good and food excellent, I ordered risotto al funghi porcini which was delicious and as main course "peposo" beef stew with black pepper sauce, if you are looking for a good place to eat in San Lorenzo area this restaurant is totally recommended.

On the recommendation of friends and TA reviews, we made a reservation at Pepo and we're glad we did. We had the Florentine steak for two and it was delicious. We asked for it to be cooked medium rare and the nice waitress basically said it comes out rare no matter what you request. So keep that in mind. The... More

A lovely treasure that we stumbled upon in Florence. My husband had the porcini risotto and I had a steak salad which we shared and the two dishes complemented each other wonderfully.

This was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel and it was a great recommendation. The restaurant is near Piazza San Lorenzo and the Central Market. The restaurant offers a very personal service and has great food selection. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Florence.
