Amazing food! Could not believe it took eight years to find this place! We had the bolognese and the fruita de mar.

Overall it is a good experience. It is not the largest restaurant but the menu is creative and the food quality is excellent and well worth the visit. The service is a bit unorganized.

Business dinner here, I love the small Italian bar atmosphere! Friendly and pleasant staff, good food. Had a nice flat iron steak, the salad on top of it made it appetizing. The Sauvignon Blanca was good, and desert (tiramisu) was gone made

Eight of us met for lunch at Peperoncino today. Some of us are Italian, have lived in Italy and/or have visited frequently. I was disappointed. We were seated at a long narrow table next to the bar, with little room to maneuver, totally inappropriate for...More

This Italian eatery was recommended to us by our hotel concierges. What a gem! Unpretentious with a spartan interior, but the food was delicious and worth the trip. We started out with a margarita pizza, very thin crust with plenty of cheese and a dark,...More

Had a meal there for lunch and dinner maybe 20 times. I don't believe they have a dress code. Most patrons just dress casually nice for dinner, lunch could be almost anything from shorts, tee shirt on up. Is your comfort... More
