“Never Disappointed with Don Peppe's Food”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This place has the best Italian Food in the 5 Boros. The family style food is generous enough for everyone to go home full. The baked clams are the best I have ever had. I also recommend the eggplant rollatini, linguine and clam sauce and the Veal Milanese. You can't go wrong with this place but dont forget to bring cash no credit cards accepted.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Went here on a recommendation from the bartender at the Hilton JFK. So glad we did. The food was the best Italian food I have ever had.

“Best Italian food and baked clams on the PLANET!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Don Peppe is a family favorite restaurant - we absolutely love it!! When we decide to take the drive to Queens we start talking about the family style menu in the car before we even get there.For our family, it's baked clams and stuffed artichokes first, then the amazing linguine with white clam sauce, then veal don peppe and chicken scarpariello. Some of the best Italian food on the planet. It's all about the food at Don Peppe - a very friendly bright atmosphere, I wouldnt call it romantic but with food this good, that's not important! Enjoy Don Peppe like my family does every few months, when we work up the appetite!

“Clams, Garlic, Pasta... more Clams”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

No reservations taken although I gotta believe the 8 husky guys with hair forearms and thick accents in the back corner table called in ahead of time. This is the kind of place where I didn't complain about the dirty smudges on my wine glass opting instead to quietly exchange it for the wine glass at the empty table next to us. But if you are in the neighborhood (10 minutes from jfk) the baked clam appetizer and the linguine with white claim sauce, along with 1980's prices will make you feel like a made man. This was the dish that was justifiably featured on the best thing I ever ate just don't deviate too far from the recipe: clams, Garlic, Pasta or you're liable to be disappointed, and complain too much at this joint and you could find yourself like Luca Brasi.

“Too abusive.”
Reviewed August 16, 2009

Gave our name and waited, and waited, and waited for our table. Checked several times to when we would be called . Waited right outside the front door on the sidewalk with everyone else. Waited. Checked. Waited.When we checked this time the prima donna host told us he gave our table away. We couldn't believe. He said he doesn't go outside to call people ( even though he knew we were waiting there ) We had family with us from Fla staying at the airport or else we would have left. So we waited inside standing right next to him. Finally got a next table, only to have the rudest, most obnoxious waiter in the world.
The food was good but not worth the abuse. Hey, this is NY. It's not the only Italian restaurant in town. This was last summer, 2008. Sorry it took me this long to write a review.
