Homemade Italian food dedicated to slow-food lovers. An invitation to sit and enjoy the music, the familiar atmosphere and every bite...without rush. Customers used to a fast food service, will not find in Pepenero an ideal place. We are easily accessible from the main areas of the island (Chaweng, Bophut, Maenam). We prepare the most traditional pasta recipes, accompanied by regional recipes and meat or fishes courses. Appetizers with the best selection of Italian cold cuts and cheese, Caprese with excellent Italian mozzarella, bruschettas and salads. Prestigious wine list and homemade desserts. The common element of all that we propose is the respect for the original recipes In Pepenero you will find the most famous Italian and international cocktails (Spritz, Negroni, Sbagliato, Mojito, Gin Tonic) always using the best brands and the original recipes. We strongly recommended to always book the table. At the moment, we don't accept credit cards.
