Description: 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.

We had a fantastic diner at this restaurant. Something else than rice and Thai food.
The owner was very kind full and explain everything on the menu. At that moment we smell and taste the food...
As starter we have some different hams and it taste very good. Later we have some pasta and fish and that was also good. We had a great evening and we enjoy the food. We like the atmosphere of this restaurant.
If you love Italian food you must go to this restaurant!

This restaurant has to be the best Italian food I have had in Asia.... From the staff to the owner to the food... Spectacular. The pasta is literally out of this world.. Felt like I was back in Italy. The staff always smiling, the owner takes his time to explain everything on the menu. The place itself is beautiful... I'm so happy that I found this place! The restaurant with this quality you should expect higher prices.. Amazing. I wish I could rate this more stars than just 5!

We were looking for a break from Thai food and found this fantastic restaurant. We sat inside in lovely air con. Owner very welcoming and helpful with the menu. So much choice and the ingredients were top quality. Everything was delicious but we'd recommend the seafood spaghetti, buffalo mozzarella and the chefs choice. Teenagers loved everything they had and they are very fussy about their Italian food! I had the best gluten free penne I've ever had (GF spaghetti also available). just with a simple rocket pesto sauce - so good! Very good value, even the wine was reasonably priced, which is unusual for Thailand given the extortionate taxes that the Government imposes. Do book as it was busy. We will definitely go back.

We had dinner once during our stay nearby Mae Nam.
Very nice restaurant, with small terrace area and enclosed room with aircon.
Tasteful simple decoration. Service was attentive and friendly.
We had different appetisers to share and all had different pastas as main. Everything was very well done and generously served.
The wine list was excellent and reasonably priced, by far The best wine list of the restaurants we tried in Samui.
An excellent Italian restaurant worth the visit.
