There’s been a lot of talk about Pepinos and how amazing everything is. From the service, to the dishes, and their wines. So I went online and made a reservation cause it’s definitely required to get in.
First impression, everyone is so friendly. I haven’t been to a restaurant where everyone greets you as you step through the restaurant. The decor reminds me of Godfather and it really makes you feel like you’re in an Italian restaurant.
We ordered two glasses of wine. The $13 Savio collaboration (which was really acidic, do not recommend) and a $17 cab sauv and it was amazing.
Started with the calamari and I’ve never had such meaty calamari in my life. The garlic sauce that you dip into was 👌🏻
As for the mains, we ordered the signature Spaghetti and meatballs in gravy and the Chicken Piccata. Meatballs were massive and the tomato sauce was delicious. The chicken piccata was a bit rich cause it’s cooked in butter but it was delicious. The chicken is fried similar to a chicken teriyaki cutlet.
We finished off our meal with a cheese cake which was super fluffy. On top was a cherry compote but I secretly wished it was strawberry.
Overall, the meal, the experience were top notch but it was a pricey meal for Italian food.
