On our leisurely drive from Tuscany to Rome we needed to stop off for lunch somewhere. There are plenty of places but based on size and timing, Tarquinia was a great place for us. We looked for places that were well rated and found Chicche e Pepe, and so glad we did. As recommended by the waitress, we had the caccio e pepe because she said the cook really knows how to cook it. Yes, indeed he does. We hadn’t tried the dish too much, but this seemed to be served as it was intended. Creamy, cheesy, and peppery. The owner/chef came out to check on us several times to make sure everything was okay and that the food was good. Despite the language barrier, we could understand his intention to make sure all was well. There is a great selection of vegetarian food here as well. Highly recommended.

I have eaten several times in this restaurant and I have never been let down. Chicche e Pepe is located in one of the most beautiful piazzas of Tarquinia. Inside they have room for maybe 30 customers at the most, but they also have a small roofed terrace with a seating capacity of 16 customers. Customers with dogs need to dine outside. The restaurant offers simple, rustic style dishes at the reasonable price. No fancy looking dishes with exciting names here! The menu has stayed the same for years with some seasonal variation only. Most of dishes are meaty, yet there are some good vegetarian options, too.

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. Food was amazing! Excellent friendly service. Ate outside- great setting. Strongly recommend this restaurant. Note: We travel a lot and enjoy fine food.

Had lunch outside on a beautiful, sunny day in early November. A few outdoor tables with maybe 6-8 tables inside. Service was very slow. I had pasta carbonara-very good but a bit dry. House wine very good. No coperto. Bill was 24E for 2 with 1/2 liter of house wine and water. Quite reasonable. Would consider retuning but need to explore other restaurants in the area

It might be just becouse of the season. But we looked at the signs claiming wine and food tasting, Bio foood etc. Just our kind of place. That said, season now is low, and so was the effort providing good food. They had no advises to give regarding wine pairing, just gave us a choise of bottles from a shelf of wine expised to heat and sun. The result was a veal dinner with boiled wine. Not often I leave half a bottle o wine on the tavle, but this was a disapointment. I am not difficult to please, but this was under average.
