Peppone on a Thursday night was two thirds full, and with the exception of one family with two children, all fairly mature couples, which contributed to a slightly subdued atmosphere, in contrast to the nearby Essenza (see separate review). Previous reviews had criticised the service, though on this evening, apart from a rather formal start, the staff were relatively friendly. The wine list was pricey - our pleasant but not outstanding Sardinian red was 39 Euro - but the menu was varied and not overly expensive. We had mushroom based starters, with the thinly sliced cold combination with celery and parmesan better than the warm shitake. For main, the truffle pasta was good; the green spaghetti with capers and chilli rather dominated by capers and olive oil. 107 Euro without dessert and before tip (the water a relative Berlin bargain at 5 Euro) was rather more than the meal merited, so despite an enjoyable evening, we will look to try other Italian restaurants next time.
