Everything was as perfect as usual. The ambiance is nostalgia to the max. The food is consistently outstanding, and the staff is highly knowledgeable and on top of everything.

The food was very good. The service was slow and we weren’t really tended to much. Restaurant is small and very busy. Noise level very loud.

There was an extended delay from the pasta primo to the fish secondi without any server touch base or update.

Was a little surprised at the cost of their food in relation to the presentation and taste. I’m glad I tried it because I had been recommended to go but won’t be going back.

Delicious food as usual - everything seasoned perfectly and well portioned. I still love how they kept the old charm of “Nick’s Spaghetti House “. The only downfall, if any, is the noise level of the restaurant - it is very loud. We were practically shouting across the table, but it’s a small aspect of an otherwise lovely dinner. Our server, Sierra, was attentive and sweet. Thank you!

we are big fans of Pepino's! this was our second visit (we brought our son with us this time) and literally got the exact same things we ordered as last time cos they were too good! started with the buffalo mozz with pesto, tomatoes & balsamic (altho will admit they weren't as good as the first time -- this time the tomatoes weren't all slow roasted), plus the prawn cocktail (i have been craving this for weeks and it was exactly what i wanted). for mains, we split the short rib ragu & the pesto gnocchi, as per our first visit, but this time added the pork chop and was it ever delicious!! too full for dessert this time around too.

Pepino’s never disappoints! Food is exceptional and the service is outstanding. It’s always a special night there. Highly recommend the buffalo mozzarella, short rib Ragu pappardelle, and of course the tiramisu!

The food was excellent as well as the service. The penne is so delicious. I will definitely go here again. The only minor downfall is how close the tables are. You’re practically sitting with other people. Which on some occasions is completely fine but on others not so much. I’m not a fan of having others listening into my conversations.

Overall a great place. I would recommend this restaurant.

Without fail, one of my favorite dining destinations in the city. The features are always amazing, the Lambrusco extra crisp and the atmosphere extra sublime. My friend and I enjoyed the "dinner for two" option and would highly recommend it! Also, the short rib ragu is beyond succulent.

This is our second meal at Pepino's. The first time was so good we returned. This time, the Veal scallopini and pappardelle with short rib ragu were delicious. We have put Pepino's on the short list for places to go for dinner in our neighbourhood.

Made reservations online & notes that it was a special occasion. Had asked for “congratulations” to be written on plate during dessert, which didn’t happen. My meal was served w a massive chunk of fat which shouldn’t have ever been served so that’s why over all I’m giving a poor review. Past times I’ve been food has been amazing, not so much this time :/

We have eaten there on prior occasions and it was fantastic. However, the other evening was less then we expected. The noise level was unbearable!! I prefer the summer menu to the winter one. The service was excellent and the staff always wonderful.

The table on the wall beside the bar was very tight for 4 people. I had the corner seat and found the bench low and not enough elbow room.

Overall a pleasant dining experience. Service was attentive, but at times distracted by an incredibly loud and demanding table by us. We ordered a dinner for 4, and it was delicious! The wine pairing was lackluster -- I would definitely recommend just getting a couple of great bottles on the menu vs fumbling though 4 sub-par glasses. The mozzarella was unreal, and the gnocchi is a must! Staff were all amazing.

Overrated, disappointing, and arrogant. Small portions, under seasoned meat, bland ragu, and okay noodles. The highlight of our meal was the broccoli which was a side dish — this speaks for itself. Drinks and service were both brilliant, but I doubt we’ll return.
