There must be a new kitchen staff here. We have been loyal customers here for a few years. Tonight ordered the penne vodka. Have had it many times in the past. It was awful. Really inedible. Not even remotely close to penne vodka, even compared to their offerings in the past. I never send food back, I’m a chef myself, but this was different. Ordered a margarita pizza to replace and it was awful also. Sliced tomatoes of the type that lousy restaurants serve on salads even out of season despite the fact they are terrible. We ordered dessert to go and didn’t even get what we ordered. What happened to Pepperoncini? Our favorite restaurant in Conshy is terrible all of a sudden. It’s going to be a long time before we go back, which sucks as that was our Friday evening place to go. Sad. The staff were gracious and apologetic but the replacement food was just as terrible as the original so apparently this is the new standard for quality. Oh well. Another casualty.

The fried calamari was cooked prefect, the baked clams were amazing and the Chicken Parm is one of the best we’ve ever had.

Had a very happy birthday dinner at Pepperocini's on Saturday night! Loved the atmosphere, the service, the drink (Muddy Water), the wine and especially the food! Kudos to the friendly bartender, jovial, helpful host and sweet and efficient wait staff. Everything was warm, cozy and delicious! Loved our meals! Will definitely be back!!

Visited for the first time to celebrate a birthday. Service was great. Food was outstanding (lobster ravioli, gorgonzola gnocchi, tomato bisque). Not a huge fan of the prosciutto wrapped asparagus, but we still enjoyed. Wine selection was great - and not overwhelming. Portion sizes were also good. Restaurant was kind enough to find me ice cream (for my cranky toddler) and delivered a beautiful chocolate cake dessert for us to sing Happy Birthday! Manager was active in the dining room, helping everyone and saying hello. Everyone made a point to wish my mom a Happy Birthday as well! We will definitely be back!

WE are frequent diners at Pepperocini and have always been extremely happy. The staff was and always has been attentive and pleasant. Party of 6, everyone’s dinner except 1 came in reasonable time. The last dinner didn’t come till everyone else was finished, and the veal parm was inedible. Like shoe leather! While offered a new platter, at that point with the other 5 people finished, a new dinner was declined. It was deducted from our bill, as it should have been, but certainly was an unpleasant experience- the wait and then being inedible. And the topper was being changed .50 for extra spaghetti sauce!

We had eaten at the Pepperoncini in Phoenixville several years ago and really liked it. We were disappointed in the Conshohocken location. We ordered a couple of drinks (non-alcoholic, which seems to often affect service at restaurants that serve alcohol) and placed our orders. It seemed to take an inordinate amount of time before our salads arrived and then one was wrong and had to be sent back. When the right one arrived, it was disappointing: the house salad (a special deal on Sundays, included with my entree) consisted of lettuce and literally one slice of tomato cut in half. That was it. We had to ask again for our drinks and both had a bad taste which was probably the ice. We weren't charged for these, I guess because we had to ask for them a second time. We also had to ask for water refills, though I noticed a table next to ours got their water refreshed frequently. The food, itself, was good, but I wouldn't return for that alone. To be clear, the restaurant was NOT understaffed. No less than 5 staff members (hostesses - one who seemed annoyed when my husband asked again for our drinks - and bus boys) peeked into the alcove we were seating during the meal. Lastly, while the servers and bus boys wore masks, the hostesses (two) did not.

Our waitress was amazing! We were seated in the back room with no other guests. Another table came in which was right next to us and were loud. We wanted to move to the back of the room, but our waitress noticed it and offered that to us! A wonderful dining experience, will definitely go there again! Food and service were awesome!

Just the right kind of neighborhood spot for a delicious Italian meal. The help is super friendly and on top of things, and the food is sooo satisfying (if a bit rich). We love the laid-back vibe and the veal, pasta, mussels...

First time here, after stumbling upon it while searching online. Looked at the reviews and, of course, the menu. From start to finish, cocktails, wine, and food, we were so glad we found this little neighborhood gem. Warm welcome from all of the staff on our way to our table. Bridget was out server, and she could not have been nicer or more informative. One of our table selected from the "Red Sauce Sunday Menu" (house made ricotta gnocchi in marinara with meatball, instead of sausage. She loved it. The "gravy" was outstanding. Striped Bass was one of the chef's specials, served with roasted potatoes and asparagus. It was another hit from the kitchen. I opted for one of the added appetizer specials of the day, Lamb stuffed Cannelloni in a Rose' Sauce, and it was memorable. I chose the Scallops Nero from the standard menu. They were served over a spicy pork and roasted tomato risotto. Outstanding!
Truly a great meal and an ultra friendly staff. Well done, Folks.

Server was not very attentive and very difficult to understand - she was wearing a mask and pretty mumbled every time she came over to speak about anything. The NY strip special was extremely bland and the steamed spinach was extremely bitter. I guess it’s better just to stick to pizza or pasta if you try this restaurant. Had been very good in the past but we were very disappointed with this most recent visit.
