I had eaten at another location of Peppino's during a previous business trip to Irvine, and the Veal Piccata was excellent! So, I headed to this location with high hopes. Unfortunately, I was let down. The place was not at all busy, but the service...More

I love eating here, the caprese salad is always good, just make sure you let them know how you wanted your traditional chicken wings will be fried. The white sauce pasta with veal and lamb is a must try entree, you will love it.

Service is always outstanding and food exceeds expectations. We have been eating at Peppinos since 1984 when it was a small Italian restaurant in Lake Forest and have never been disappointed.

This place is consistent with their quality. Salads and house dressing is unbelievable. We love their patio and the service has always been spot on. Fond memories here with the kids as they grew up. Definitely family friendly and a 5 star restaurant.

We've been visiting this Peppino's near the cinema for over 19 years. During that time we've tried a fair number of other Italian restaurants, as far out as RSM, Laguna Beach and Tustin, some which might have been a little more "authentic", but none which...More
