Peppercorn’s Grill and Piccolo Arancio are owned and operated by the Cialfi siblings, Sal, Dino, Tina, and Rosa. Brothers Sal and Dino purchased Peppercorn's Grill in 1989 and they, along with younger sisters Tina and Rosa opened Piccolo Arancio in 1994.

It has been awhile since I have eaten here and was pleased to find that this long established restaurant is still excelling in its preparation, presentation, and deliciousness. Free valet parking is available and needed. The place has a bustling warm ambiance.
Eating at Peppercorn's has become a New Year's Eve tradition. The atmosphere is usually upbeat and the restaurant is typically filled to capacity on this special evening. I was surprised to see that the restaurant had several empty tables (our reservation was for 7:30). My...More
Overall it was a good meal. Reason for writing is to convey with staff/managers of how to handle partially eaten dinners placed in a doggie bag. A 9" round plastic container (containing leftovers) should NOT be put into a bag standing on its rim and...More
We had theatre tickets, and chose Peppercorns initially because it’s the closest restaurant to the Bushnell Center. Our server - the Mario in the title of our review - made our lunch special. He was knowledgeable, efficient and clearly loves the place.

Peppercorn’s is our go to Hartford restaurant, but going to their 1st attempt at an ambitious wine dinner was a mistake. It took 45 minutes after the start to get our 1st service, a glass of Prosecco. This continued for the rest of the night...More
