“Solid pasta, above average”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

It is above average when it comes to pasta, red sauce and service. I stopped in for a business dinner. We had a nice quiet booth in the dinner room. The bar was noisy, almost to the point of having an obnoxious drunk yelling. But that ended quickly. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. We had baked pasta dishes, that were very good. Great taste and balance, large portions. The house dressing on the salad was acceptable. I liked the ambiance that shows the support of the community. It was a very reasonable dinner too. When your in the falls, be sure to stop. Next time I'll try the pizza.

“Perfect for Girls Night Out!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

My girlfriends and I go to Pepino's just about every third Thursday of the month for girls night out. We order wine, beer and pizza and ALWAYS have a great time. From the staff taking the most excellent care of us to the bartender putting up with some of the late staying of us. We have had some of the best experiences here food and service wise. Highly recommend this place, it's a little pricey but good things are not cheap and no one says you have to eat here everyday.

“Delicious pizza and garlic bread!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I can't believe what kind of axe the last reviewer must have to grind. We were there Saturday night (four of us), it was busy. Two of us shared an EBA (Everything But Anchovies) pizza, it was outstanding! One of us had the baked mostaccioli, it was easily enough for two people. The garlic bread was perhaps the best we've had at any pizza place. We will be going here a lot more often. They have specials every night except Saturday. We all took home enough food for lunch the next day.

“Cardboard and ketchup”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Sorry but this place was just disgusting. The pizza sauce was just tomato sauce. There was no real taste to any of the food. The only saving grace was the service was pretty good. But really, just go to Pizza Hut across the street.

“Pepino's fish Fry and service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We went to Pepino's because our friends said the fish use to be so good. Well 'USE" to be is the key word. The fish was not good, very fishy, very bland and not much taste. Service was very slow, and they weren't even busy when we were there, at 5:30pm.

We love their pizza's, they are very good and we usually do pick up on those. But would not come for fish fry again, and the lack of sevice as disappointing. Took forever to get water and Soda brought to table also.
