Food is always amazing, service is great - staff is personable, helpful and friendly. If you visit often they treat you like family... prices are fair and portions are generous.

We tried a pasta dish and a pizza and both were very good. We ordered on line and still had to wait for our take-out order more than 20 minutes after the promised time. If I were the manager, I would have thrown in an appetizer or dessert as an apology.

Peppino's is an Italian family restaurant, old family photos over the walls. Very noisy and stuffy, reason I can not give a higher rating. It is a pity as food is very flavorful. There is a bar next door with music during the weekend evenings. Wine selection is average. Service is friendly.

We had drinks and appetizer bread plate after the movie. It was excellent. The sauce reminded me of my grandma Filicetti's

I have mixed feelings about this place. First, the food is excellent. I hade some kind of pizza, it was so good. The decor is awesome. It reminds me of the small italian places I used to see in the bay area as a child. The smell, the look, very familiar. The staff is not 100% friendly. I ordered my... More

My family and I come to this location often. They have nice menu selection, and the aroma is fantastic. My husband and I usually share Baked Ziti (which they will divide in half for two), and a salad with shredded Parmesan cheese on top. Delicious! We go at least once a month, and have never been disappointed. The restaurant has... More
