Pepino's Spaghetti House
This is our favourite go-to place when we have company.
The food, the flavours, and service were excellent. However, I was incredibly disappointed our pasta portions were significantly smaller than the pasta portions that were served at tables around it. I left the restaurant feeling slightly hungry and unsatisfied. We ordered the lobster pasta special and the Fettuccine mushrooms which were significantly smaller in portion sizes then their Spaghetti meatballs Linguine dishes.
I had the most awful experience at Pepino’s Spaghetti House. It was my first time and I had booked a week in advance for 4 (my family) the waitress whom served us had orange hair and was beyond rude and had a huge attitude the entire dining experience. I was so in shock how someone could treat her own table so poor. It all started when we asked to change our drink? We got the aperol spritz and it tasted like water and she wasn’t OK with the fact that we didn’t like it at all. We wanted to switch for another drink and had zero problem paying for what we ordered. She also started talking bad about us infront of us to another waiter (he was Chinese) I can’t believe that’s how I was treated in a restaurant in my own city? Sooo unprofessional. Will be contacting the managers. And no I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone due to the service? If the food is great but the service is absolutely awful what’s the point
This was our second visit, and we were just as thrilled as the first time. Food was outstanding, the service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is charming without veering too far into kitschy.
Love love love the food, atmosphere & staff. Thank u again Romano for your understanding & generosity ! You are amazing. 😘🍷
Great family-friendly, homey Italian restaurant with delicious dishes.
I ordered the Spaghetti and Meat Balls and found it extremely salty! I’ve ordered this dish several time before and it is not like it used to be.
Highly recommend the cannelloni! We also ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and a side of mushrooms. Both were delicious too!
It was our anniversary and they had champagne for us as soon as we got there. It was a great experience.
A wonderful meal. I had indicated in my booking this was for a birthday, and they mentioned it when we got seated, there was a birthday card on the table, and we also got complimentary dessert!
Food was delicious, although a little pricey for some of the dishes.
My boyfriend and I tried out Pepino’s for our 2 year anniversary, and we were very pleased with every part of this place! They even gifted us with bubbles for our Anniversary which was really nice. We got two pastas(Spaghetti and Meatballs/Linguine w/ clams, BOTH must try’s!!!), and the calamari which was good as well! Only thing was that it was a bit noisy due to it being so busy there, but the food and service made up for that 😊 we’ll definitely be back soon!
Excellent service, prompt without being pushy. Food was very good. On the loud side, was difficult to have a conversation.
Food was simple but good quality. Room was SO loud I could barely wait to leave, but it took 25 min to get the bill.
Portions are large and the food is authentic. The ambiance was lively which made conversation difficult unless you to each other loudly but it still felt cozy. Service was great and the food arrived in a timely fashion. The server was excellent. She made great recommendations and the tiramisu was a great way to finish an excellent meal.
Service was excellent-never without s glass of water,,dishes removed expediently. Authentic Italian atmosphere & food yummy!
We had an incredible time on Saturday. The lobster pasta special was particularly delicious.
If your Italian , Stay away food was horrible I have had better Italian food at a non Italian restaurant .
prices are not worth portion size or quality .
I did not enjoy the food or atmosphere at this restaurant. It was high priced for what it is.
Also, it is very noisy.
Getting sparkling water on the house was very welcomed! The complementary bread and butter is also very much appreciated, though it would be great if the bread was toasted, or at least warm. Food was good, though we found the Alfredo to be overly cheesy. These were just some personal thoughts. Overall great experience.
We ordered the Dinner for 2 (all server recommendations: Avocado Salad, Spicy Penne, Pork Chop and Tiramisu), and it was great. We really enjoyed the Avocado Salad and Tiramisu very much (best two dishes of the four). The Penne tasted homemade, which was good, but also felt like something we could have made at home. Pork Chop was tasty and large - definitely made us full. Overall service was also fantastic; however, it's super loud inside (likely due to older construct, so sound literally stays in the room). I would recommend Pepino's and hope to be back to try some of the other dishes (.... or to simply just order that Tiramisu again! :))
Food was great - do the two diner special - excellent value. Noise level however was hard to have conversations.
Went here with my girlfriend for her birthday and got the 4 course meal for $45 per person (two of us). Each course was so delicious and we were absolutely stuffed after (portions are big!). The porkchop dish was HUGE and cooked perfectly. The Tiramisu was one of the best I've ever had and had a rich caramel-like flavor to it. The restaurant was super busy and the ambient noise was quite a bit louder than what I'm used to. Service was attentive and did a great job explaining the menu and recommendations. Everything was perfect and I would definitely come back.
Very helpful and accommodating staff!
We had a great experience at Pepion's Spaghetti House. Recently returning from our trip in Italy, the food was like we had never left. I would definitely return to try more dishes, as their lamb and spaghetti meat balls were incredible. The service was well-timed and their friendly appreciation towards our birthday celebrations made the night a special occasion.
Great food, thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The person paying the bill was a less delighted when the bill came. It is very pricey particularly for the pasta and salads.
Service was wonderful from both our server and the bartender, Jordan. All support staff including manager were also present and working well together. Atmosphere is nice and cozy and prefect for a rainy evening. The gnocchi is delicious and perfectly tender. Vodka sauce has great depth of flavour and the perfect amount of spice. Will return and save room for dessert next time!
Had a great meal and service on Saturday night for my wife’s B-Day. Food was top notch, great Savio red coupled with Paula B. and her great service made it that much more a special evening out. Job well done by all!
We came here for my husband's birthday and loved it so much we came back the next week! The food is very well prepared and so delicious. Yes, it is a bit pricey but you pay for quality. This is the only restaurant I will pay $26 for spaghetti and meatballs.
The restaurant was packed both times we went and became extremely noisy so conversations at a normal voice levels were impossible. During our first visit, we were with our senior parents and they had a lot of difficulty hearing us (and us hearing them). We still enjoyed the meal, however.
Great fun, nostalgic vibe. At our 4 person table 2 guests tried prix fixe menu. Be hungry! Food was plentiful and delicious - ceasar salad, chicken piccata, cannelloni, broccolini - prepared with skill. Two others had clam linguini and the light-as-air, delicate gnocchi. All were more than happy with their selections. Great tastes, attentive service, this spot Is terrific.
We loved the ambiance, the service, and the food was delicious. The tiramisu is the best we've ever had! we will definitely go back.
Very loud and hard to have a conversation but the food is good
I had never been here before and thoroughly enjoyed my experience! The wait staff was very helpful and the cooks do an amazing job! I will be back.
I am a retailer in Gastown. I have been there about 20 times and send all my tourists to your restaurant. My vendors also have started bringing their customers from out of town to your place. Usually the service is great however, Monday must have been an exception. If customers tell you Rose sent them, it’s me.
Amazing service & amazing food as always. I love the cozy family living room type atmosphere and everything on the menu is the bomb. The tiramisu for dessert is a must have
Amazing service and PASTA WOW
Our server was amazing....loved the ambiance and the food was great! We will be back soon!
Great food, service and atmosphere. Truly outstanding, thanks!
Best Italian food in Vancouver, the whole vibe in the restaurant is amazing! Loved everything about this place, and the 5 other people I was with couldn’t agree more! It’s a must in Vancouver!
Gorgeous, atmospheric restaurant with excellent service and even better food, easily one of the best Italian restaurants in the city!
The food and service was absolutely fantastic!!
It does get a little loud - but the noise level is tied to folks having fun so creates a very warm (albeit lively) ambiance.
