We love Pepperoncini! We come here often for the great food and atmosphere...we absolutely love the food and have never been dissatisfied!!!
Enjoyed every minute. Food very tasty . Prices were very reasonable. Place clean and not noisy.
Excellent food and service in a neighborhood gem! We will be back. Everything was wonderful and that chocolate cake!!
After finding Pepperoncini and locating close on-street parking, we walked the short distance to this small neighborhood restaurant. We were there to celebrate 2 birthdays. Our server, Shawna, couldn't have been nicer and even explained the menu twice, once when we were seated and once when our friends arrived. We ordered calamari for the table and meatballs. Both were good especially the calamari with the Green Goddess dressing on the side. Small salads were also delivered to our table. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, even those with food restrictions. The chef was very flexible and altered the menu as needed. My Bronzino wrapped in parchment paper was moist and flavorful.
Then it was time for dessert. When I made the reservation, I mentioned in our request that we were celebrating two birthdays. I even received a phone call from someone at the restaurant asking about candles. Very impressive! We decided to opt for candles on our desserts rather than on a small chocolate cake provided by the restaurant. What was upsetting was that when the desserts came out, no candles were on them. Our server obviously didn't know we were celebrating birthdays because she looked down and commented about the card on the table and asked if it was someone's birthday. Someone obviously dropped the ball, and I can't say it was the server. Despite a delicious dinner, not celebrating the birthdays left us disappointed.
Been to this restaurant many times an never before had to wait for my table. Very crowded tonight and waited about a half hour with no place to stand in this small restaurant. Not too happy. Staff was apologetic but a comp drink would have been nice.
I made a reservation to take part in restaurant week. This was my first time dining here and after reviewing the menu I instead choose to order off the regular menu and get chicken parm vs. the Preset Menu. It was very tasty and the portion was enough that I had lunch the following day. The service was very pleasant and welcoming from the hostess to the waitress and the food was served in a timely fashion. My only 2 issues would be the noise level. It was hard to carry or hear our conversation and cost of (2) Grey Goose Dirty Martinis. When given the the bill each one was $14 and we were charged an extra dollar for ordering blue cheese olives in (1). I think this is a rather escalated price. As a suggestion, one should be notified of the upgrade charge on the menu or in person when other vodka's outside of the "house" are less, especially when Thursday nights have $8 per martini vodka selections as vodka upgrades. Otherwise, I would return and am glad we selected this location.
I think Lynn Leonard and I were the first two diners for Restaurant Week. We enjoyed every bite of our meals. We like quiet dining so we eat early. We hope you add
Braciole to your menu, it was delicious. We’ll be back soon. Shawna convinced us to come on Thursday for Lamb.
I heard some good reviews, however my experience wasn't that great. I had a later reservation, however, I still had to wait. Then I was seated all the way in the back room. The space was tight and too close to other diners. The noise level was very loud and I could hardly have a conversation of my own. I could everyone elses conversation. The service was not that great. At least the food was good.
Our management team had a two day conference, and we needed somewhere nice to eat the first evening. I had no qualms making a reservation for eight business associates at this restaurant, as I had been there several times before. We were put at a long table in the back dining area, which we had to ourselves. It was great for conversation. Everyone ordered off of the menu, and everyone seemed very pleased with the meal. The service was excellent, as I think the waitress only had us to serve. I would recommend this restaurant if you are out on a date or if you have a special occasion to observe. The food is always excellent!
A neighborhood gem! After relocating to Philly from Dyker Heights Brooklyn, we have been craving Italian food. Everything we ordered was excellent, service was friendly and attentive, perfect portions (not huge) just enough for lunch tomorrow with a small salad. Plus homemade desserts. Highly recommended.
