Not far from JFK is this gem of an Italian restaurant. Located on ozone park area the exterior is pretty old and not inviting. The interior is like a throwback to the 70s and is equally unimpressive but all that is irrelevant when you taste the food. Baked clams. Mozzarella & tomato, stuffed mushrooms were all excellent starters. An unflappably... More

Bring cash. Expect a crowd and brusque service. I do not love every dish here, but the dishes I do love are so delicious that I am giving a 5-star review. Best linguine white clam sauce ever. Delicious baked clams, chicken marsala (which I HATE everywhere else), veal or chicken don pepe, and salad (not fancy, but super fresh and... More

From being seated, till leaving we were all treated like one of their family. Had a party of 11, so it can get difficult. Ordered starters, continuers, main courses, desserts, and cappuccino. Food just kept on coming. I really liked that food was plated for us, and excellent bread fresh was delicious. Their home made wine is also a must... More

I wish I could say I've been through the whole menu - because I'm sure there are many gems on the menu. However, my boyfriend and I only seem to eat the same four things each time we go here because we can't imagine skipping any of them to venture into new territory. The baked clams are permanently included on... More

We have been going to Don Peppe's for over thirty years and there is no better restaurant if you are interested in good Southern Italian food. We always say, "When God calls and there is one meal left, this is where we want to eat." Really good Italian food is harder to find than people realize. But this is where... More

Italian classics like Veal Don Peppe Linguini & clam sauce are served at this cash-only Ozone Park institution. Outstanding homemade wine and service.

Had an amazing dinner after waiting over an hour to be seated (much too long for young children!). Wait staff amazing, informative and very helpful with ordering off the family style menu. "House" wine very good. For the long wait, food was OK. With other amazing Italian restaurants available, not sure I would travel that far, and wait that long... More
