“Bland”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

I went here just yesterday for dinner and it was pretty packed inside because we came late and didn't reserve. We sat outside but it was quite nice. Not too hot but not actually cool either.

We ordered a signature penne, fettuccine and salad. All in all the taste was quite good, and price-wise it's not really expensive either. Though I was hoping for something much tastier but I couldn't find any here. The portion is adequate too.

We had to work for waiter's attention but all in all it's quite a pleasant dining experience, minus the outdoor, though.

“Always good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

I was at pepenero three years ago and I was looking forward to my visit to Jakarta to have the possibility to go there again. Absolutely original italian cousine, very good food for a reasonable price. I loved the carpaccio! During my stay (one week), I went there three times.

“authentic italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Don't expect to get chili sauce to complement your pizza here. Some of my friends say that the food is tasteless, but I personally like the food in here! It is a bit bland, but in a right way. I don't really recommend the risotto though.
I recommend you to order their seafood in tomato soup (they are very lenient with the seafood), four cheese pizza with rocket salad, and mostly their pasta is good.
The price is very reasonable too!!
