I love good Italian food! Peppino's food has always been of high quality, and the staff excellent. The atmosphere has improved in the new excavations and is a great place for a nice evening. Everything tastes so good, you can not go wrong.

Great happy hour food and prices. We had a fabulous Ceaser salad, Peperoni bread, and brachetta. You get a lot of food and drinks for the price. Enough to share. The service was great too!
