Complained the food was luke warm and came back overdone cause they prob stuck it back into the oven and came out even worse. Two slices of eggplant on my sandwich. Talk about portion control.

For the holidays we had food catered by Pepe and Rose the food was outstanding! From lunch to dinner this is our to go place. It feels like you're in Italy and it's a lovely family owned restaurant .

Had a nice lunch with my wife at Pepe and Rose in Branford. My wife had the Chicken alla Rose which was good and I had the Eggplant Parm which was very good. Service was excellent. Decor was nothing special. Prices were slightly higher than similar restaurants in the area.

We went here for my dad's birthday with a relatively large group. There was plenty of space for everyone and the waitress was very accommodating. We had some appetizers, salads and pizza and enjoyed every bite! It was a hit all around!

This place is great!! We have been going for quite some time now and the food is always the best! Everything we have tried has been amazing! The vodka sauce, eggplant parm, meatballs, the pizzas (mashed potato, chipotle chicken etc) all have been absolutely delicious! By far the best place in town hands down!

A few months ago we had to unfortunately place my mom in a nursing home, which is located in Branford. When my husband and I visit her later in the afternoon, we do dinner out. After going to our usual places, Eli's, SBC, WB Carson, we decided to try this little pizzeria. WOW! The fresh bread served with the meals... More

The family that runs this "pizza joint" doesn't know the meaning of hospitality. The service is absolutely terrible! They all have attitudes. I litterly watched the kitchen staff handle my salad with bare hands! HEALTH CODE VIOLATION! The son is a punk! Told me to go somewhere else when I had a reasonable complaint. Food was luke warm,pasta overcooked,tasteless tomato... More
