Was disappointed with the service this time, the waiter was not very friendly. This place used to be my favourite Italian place but I’m not sure if I would return after this experience

Excellent food and a team of wait staff took care of many courses and wine pairings. Excellent food and a noisy busy room with an entrance that could fool you as the outside facade is so nondescript.

It was excellent in every aspect, great food, great atmosphere, great waiter.
The waiter took care of us. We did The 2 can dine menu and the waiter took care of our food for us.
He selected the choices for and it was great.

Food great... I’ve tried the beef tenderloin, the linguini with clams, vodka rigatoni, several sides and cheesecake - all delicious. Excellent wine list.
My only complaint is the noise level.

Much too expensive for what you get. No half portions or children's portions. Food was okay - nothing spectacular which is what we expected for the price.

Lovely authentic wholesome Dining in the original Spaghetti house, unchanged. Adds to the authenticity of the vibe. Love, Love, Love 💕
One of our favorite Restos in Vancouver along with their sister restaurant Ostetia Salvio Volpe. Regulars at both, we enjoy the fabulous food, great service and always a pleasure to introduce to friends. Grazie e bene‼️🍽🍜

Great restaurant, reminds me of a typical restaurant in Italy. Service and food was fantastic. Portions were very big for the $45 pp option - had left overs.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in town. Our server was fantastic on Monday evening, she answered all of our questions (we had a lot) with much detail. She also made some excellent recommendations that really helped us select what to order. We did not get her name unfortunately but she was young, very tall, blonde and was wearing glasses. She rocks! Pepinos always makes our date night 10/10. The food is to die for! We tried the big Anthony for the first time, adventuring away from our favorite chicken piccata. The burrata appy was SO INCREDIBLE. Cheese was imported from Italy 😋

Such great food and service, the only downside is that the tables are so close together I felt like I was having dinner with the people next to us on both sides

Close seating. Loud atmosphere. Casual dining. Overpriced for level of service and portion size and quality of food. The two of us ordered a salad to share + one entré each. Warning: avocado salad is more beets than salad or avocado. Didn’t get our entrés at the same time - First entré was cold. Sent it back to re-heat. Second entré arrived 8 minutes later. Then first entré was re-delivered 2 minutes after the second, but now it was barely warm, not hot as requested. Wait staff did not apologize, rather she told us that the menu was “family style” and the “plates don’t come out at the same time”. This was not explained to us when ordering, nor is it explicit on the menu. In fact, the menu has a sidebar for family style sharing. We did not order from that section. Also, all 5 tables surrounding us got their entrés at the same time. This confused us. The wait staff seemed irritated by our confusion. Still no apology, just more excuses..”We are very busy tonight”.
Pretty disappointed at this place. Miss the previous restaurant at this location. It was called Nic’s and it was a great family place. I think Pepinos has tried to create a more upscale/hipster Nics that appeals to millennials who think it’s cool to be over casual. The decor is on point for casual dining (they maintained Nics nostalgic Italian family dining room vibe), but unfortunately the service and food quality are also on point for casual dining. The only thing upscale about Pepinos is the price.

My hair dresser and I have been wanting to come here for ages. So in December her and I booked a reservation for February 14 it was so good. My friends and I already booked for a Friday in April. The lobster gnocchi needs to be on the menu permanently. The food was incredible the only downside and it wasn’t a deal breaker was that the bread needed to be warm.

My server is a nice petite lady, she was ok. The table on my left , she told them the house special etc. I i didn't get that info. On my right, she even introduced herself. I didn't get that neither.
It may be better, if she was consistent on how she treats her customers. She can even get a five stars , if she did.
