We dropped in after we reserved a place the day itself. Cosy, small restaurant with some great dishes on the menu. Small but nice selection wines. Fast and friendly service without to much blablablabla. If you are in Mainz, sleeping in the Novotel or close, then ask the reception, by foot it's 5 minutes. = Great Italian food, in a... More

I had expected run of the mill Italian food, but was pleasantly surprised - not only by the presentation, which was excellent, but also by the taste. This was very good food indeed. I had the mixed grilled fish with three types of fish; Tuna was one, but I cannot recall the other two. This was grilled to perfection, and... More

Italian owned and operated. This was a wonderful dining experience. The food was well prepared and everything tasted wonderful. I lived in Italy for 3 years, and this was as good as any food I experienced while living in Northern Italy. The Pasta Arrabiata was spicy and fantastic.

We had a fantastic dinner at Peperoncino. First evening delicious fish (Sole and Branzino) accompanied by a nice Vermentino from Sarfegna and we decided to have dinner also for our second evening in Mainz at peperoncino, since the menu (and the good service) really seduced us to come back Second evening delicious pasta from "mama" kitchen with fresh, home made...

Food is amazing and Fabulous Service. As a single business woman I am always treated very well, they find the best table near the window or if its warm I will sit outside.

I was there in a hot summer night with my husband and 6-year-old kid. Great service, waiters especially nice to my son. We had the octopus carpaccio, 2 pasta dishes and a sea food dish. Everything was delicious, the wine recommendation acording to the food. Not an every- day restaurant but a pleasant experience for a quiet family or romantic... More

Orderns pizza, which both looked and tasted factory made. It wasnt bad, but not what i expect when going to an Italian resturant. There was a dog in the restaurant, which I think is unpleasant out of hygienic reason. Ok if they had the dog outside. But not in the restaurant. The service personal were well aware of the dog....
