“Cozy place, good food, great pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

The right place to meet with friends or family, enjoy your really good pizza, have your wine or beer and talk and chat uninterrupted by noise from outside or within. The atmosphere and ambience just lets everyone fit into the coziness of the place. Service is good, waiters and waitresses are attentive. Prizes are moderate. The choice of Italian food is extensive. The location is very good if you are not sitting in a traffic jam and car park as well as nearby public bus transport are available. What else can you ask for!

“Pepanero Kunnigan”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

My wife and I used to eat here a lot. I even proposed to her in this restaurant. But that was 3 years ago. We went back last night. What a disappointment. The staff have mostly changed and are no where near as good as before. The food has gone from being excellent to just above average.
The salad leaves in the Mimosa salad were old and limp. The ribs were OK. We had mushrooms to start and these should have been crispy fried but were soggy.
I asked if the apple pie was served hot or cold, "hot" was the reply. However it arrived fresh from the fridge, and quite soggy. I asked for it to be warm as originally requested. I can only assume thy microwaved it, as it came back something akin to baby food.
From being our special place and favorite restaurant, this is now a place we will not go back to.
Both dissapointed and upset about the change in this place.

“Good food as Italian restaurant the closer it get to Italy taste in Jakarta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Yesterday June 10 me and my wife we when after a long time to have lunch to Pepe Nero restaurant.

We had Carpaccio with Parmesan cheese
Pizza margherita
Tagliata al rosmarino

Carpaccio was very good with a lot of cheese, similar to the Italian one or at list the closer I had in Indonesia
Pizza margherita was good, this is the most simple pizza but at the same time the most difficult because the material must be very good (flower, tomato, mozzarella, water, oven) and I have to say that as the taste is the closer we had in Indonesia to Italian pizza.

The tagliata meat was delicious and tender, the only negative side the roasted potato probably where 2 days old.

Overall it was very nice lunch with good price, we will go back and ask for new roasted.

“Good Italian food at affordable prices and nice places.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

They have many branches and been to all of them except the one at Ruko Pondok Indah. For the place's atmosphere, I like the one at WTC2 Sudirman the most. The waitstaffs there are also not as rude as others at Menara Karya, especially.

The pizzas, pasta, salads, we love it all here and they are affordable cos portions are quite big so you can share.

Pepenero is a split product of Trattoria's. Used to be one under Trattoria till one of the ex co-owners split up and opened their very own Pepenero. And now Pepenero is more hitting than Trattotia they keep opening everywhere, mostly at South Jkt.

The Pepenero at WTC2 is very cold, though. New building. Nice and cozy.

I went to the one in Kemang. The food was good and the price was very reasonable.
