The tables were nicely spaced, so the environment seemed as safe as it could be. The food was good and the service good. The noise level was nice and low. Overall a very enjoyable evening out!

For morning coffees and pastries, you can do worse. The breakfasts are OK. For anything else, food is average but service... Slow doesn't even begin to describe it. Too bad because the place has loads of potential.

The pizza here is the best I’ve had in a long time and will return for that alone.
We had a reservation for 7pm and when we arrived there were 4 other groups of people waiting outside for their 7pm booking. We were sat at 7.20 and all the seating was a bit too close together for COVID times in my opinion.
However, the food was delicious and good value for money so will back for that alone

It was good except that we were initially asked to sit very close to another occupied table even though there were empty tables further away. I had to argue my case.
Not compliant with the guidelines.

From the moment we walked in the door, the waiter was attentive, informative and friendly. Our party of four were each able to find something to meet our tastes and the wine was so reasonably priced, we eventually ended up ordering a second bottle.

I had the nachos to start and would highly recommend them but the chicken burger was next level. With chicken coming out the side of the bun and a delicious breading, it was one of the best I’ve ever had. I also didn’t hear any complaints coming from the rest of my party. When it came time for desert we were pretty stuffed, but two ordered deserts and the waiter was kind enough to drop two extra spoons.

The tables were nicely spaced out for Covid regulations, and as more patrons came in throughout the night we always felt safely distanced. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, friendly service with delicious food.

Thank you, we will definitely be back.

The biggest issue I would have with brunch at Peperina is that there is an over reliance on eggs. I don't eat eggs so was. a bit stuck for choice. There are plenty of alternative options for brunches-how about smoked salmon, grilled tomato, mushroom and avocado. Or take the salmon out and have a vegan alternative. Otherwise, it is really lovely food and the staff are a credit.

Really enjoyed our time with you there. The staff were most accomodating. WE had a 10month old little boy with us and they were all most helpful. I hope he did not upset your clients! The meal was lovely- we say outside and talked away. Lovely place- lovely food- lovely ambiance.

We booked pepperina on the morning of Mother’s Day, as another restaurant had let us down badly. Pepperina to the rescue. We had a fabulous Mother’s Day brunch served with a smile. Really friendly neighborhood restaurant. Food fabulous and really organized generally. Thanks pepperina.
