I have been coming to this place when I lived in Milwaukee since 1990. My favorite has always been the breaded eggplant! It is always full of flavor and fresh, and cooked to perfection. During this specific trip, I sat at the bar; which you...will find full of locals that have been coming there for many years. As each local walks in, they are greeted by the bartender and other patrons around the bar, like a scene from the TV sitcom Cheers! I ordered the meat Ravioli and it did NOT disappoint! It was fresh, cooked just right and the marinara sauce was spectacular. The portion size was enormous and the meal came with soup or salad. I could not finish the final 8th shell! This is a family business and the owners are very much involved in it every day. It has a great atmosphere and the courteous and attentive staff you will find in the area. The waitress I had (I had to order through a waitress and not the bartender for food even though I was at the bar - I thought this was a little odd) was attentive and on top of it even though she had tables throughout the restaurant. Besides for the few new GreenBay Packer memorabilia from recent winning years and new players; the inside has been in a time capsule since the first day I walked in here in 1990. This is not a negative, it is a true positive. It is great to see what I consider a staple of culinary excellence in the Northwest metropolitan area still around, still thriving and still providing amazing food and great service is a testimony to the Armeli's.More

We heard their pizza was good. Better than that, it is fantastic. Also stopped for a fish fry and was very happy with that also. Great atmosphere and a very good staff. Will definitely eat there again.

Lovely meal with great vegetarian options. Definitely worth a visit. It's a bit off the main drag but worth walking to. Courteous service.

We love the pizza from Pepinos. Truly the best crust and toppings anywhere! The other Italian choices are wonderful too. Well worth it.

Their pizza is good, but their spaghetti and lazania is truly spectacular. They also have a very good Wisconsin style fish fry on Fridays. We can have a supper and a lunch with the fish fry takeout.

Went here for the first time and was quite pleased. Pizza was very good and my son liked the lasagna. The grandkids ate their entire plates of pasta. Only negative was my daughter in law reported her shrimp and linguine was kinda blah.

Fridays is a great time to go to Pepinos! All-you-can-eat fish and sides. Served somewhat family style. Get there early, it fills up fast!

This Pepino's is one of my hubby & my favorite restaurants! We love to sit at the bar, have a couple of cocktails and enjoy the eggplant and the meatball sandwich! Wonderful atmosphere and service every time!

We stop in Pepino's for all you can eat fish every year when we are in town for a conference on Super Bowl weekend. Always a solid choice. Food is good and the service is done with a smile. We love to joke around with...the wait staff and they give it right back to us! We do always make a reservation since we have a group of 6 or more each time and they always have a table ready and waiting for us .More

Every time I come into town I have to stop here for my Friday night fish fry. Best all-you-can-eat fish fry in the area. Friendly wait staff, and great owners who always greet you and treat you like family. The fish fry is served family-style...with huge portions they keep bringing until you've had enough! This is a must try for the family.More
