We love Pepp & Dolores! This last visit, our pasta was a little cold when we received it. But otherwise, delicious.
The bread was a bit skimpy for the price and the app was underwhelming, but we LOVED our pasta dishes, the service was phenomenal, and they had a great wine/cocktail/drink selection. We also really enjoyed the limoncello service. Will definitely go back!
The food was very good. The sauces were very flavorful and the pasta dishes were rich. The portion size was good - not too big but enough to fill you up. Recommend 2-3 appetizers/sides and a pasta dish for each if dining as a couple.
Excellent service and sensible portions that taste great. Very cozy environment for a nice quiet dinner.
The best restaurant at OTR. I would not hesitate to come back again and recommend it to others.
We ate outside in the tent with lovely Christmas decorations. We were there at 3 pm which was a great time to be there. Would go back for sure.
We loved this restaurant, and look forward to dining there again! However, music volume made it
difficult to talk!
Terrific service and food! Favorites are the Gricia Pasta, and the fried artichokes. However, we loved the Calabrese appetizer also.
Service was outstanding, food was fresh and delicious. Cocktails were imaginative and prepared with care. Music playlist got kudos from the table. I had been before but my other four guests had not, and they LOVED it. We'll all be back. Thank you for making our improv Thanksgiving a success!
Always outstanding. This is one of the best spots in Cincinnati. Highly recommend for a date night or going out with the family. Food and service are both exceptional.
Delicious Italian food in a fun, festive atmosphere.
We were not aware we would be sitting outside in the tent. We would of preferred chairs with a back instead of a bench. However, With that said, the staff was fabulous and the food was wonderful.
Great food, Italian with small portions allowing us to try several items. Artichokes were great.
Pepp and Dolores is the perfect date night spot, dinner with fam/friends, or coworkers! The atmosphere is great! We sat downstairs next to a gorgeous marble bar, surrounded by pictures of family members, specifically grandparents, who inspire the food and ambiance. Food, service, and company was great! Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!
YESSS!!! Oh man. When I saw the Thunderdome group (think: The Eagle, Bakersfield, Pontiac, etc) had their own Italian restaurant I knew it would be phenomenal. I wasn't wrong!! This place is amazing. The ambiance is so cool--we ate downstairs and it was a really neat atmosphere. We started with the Crostini Tricolore which was amazing. I had the Butternut & Mascarpone and ohhh my. Wow. So so so good. A great seasonal dish but to be honest, I would eat it any time of year. My husband got the popular Sunday Sauce and was extremely pleased--as was I when I tried a bite. HIGHLY recommend!!
We ate early on Sunday evening about 5:30. Service was very good. We ordered two orders of bread with the Dunk option(oil and herbs, both very good. We also tried the fried artichokes, tasty. All four of us tried a different pasta and were all happy with our choice.
Excellent meal! The outside area was a very nice location for a COVID safe meal. The wait staff was friendly and efficient and the food was wonderful!
Food and service were outstanding! Especially loved the ricotta appetizer and limone pasta!Are doing a great job with the current regulations. Will definitely be back.
Amazing food and service! I can't wait to go back!
Fantastic service and ambiance. Everything on the menu sounds amazing and literally every bite was. Bring an appetite and order lots!
One of the best dinners we have had in a long time!!!! We sat in the "basement". The service all around from walking in the door to leaving was exceptional. Food equally amazing and the ambiance was great!! Highly recommend!
Food and service was excellent. Sarah was a fantastic server.
Family night out, most enjoyable. 2nd visit and will be back.
The food was awesome. Our waiter was a sweetheart. The music was super loud which was weird
Our server, Eric, was super helpful and gave an informative tour of the menu.
It was my birthday!!!! Amazing experience, helpful guests & delicious food. My new fav spot in Cinci :))
We went for my birthday and every single thing we had was delicious!! It was also a really cool atmosphere and great service! Highly recommend!! :)
Amazing food, great service and nice outdoor tent.
Love the food! This place is in my top 5 in Cincy!
We had a great experience. We felt comfortable with Covaid protocols and it did not affect the outstanding food and service.
First time dining at Pepp and Dolores but won’t be our last. Our meal was fabulous. Our server, David, masterfully guided us through our selections. Wedge salad was great as was the dunk. Enjoyed the Sunday sauce. Great experience. Can’t wait to return.
We went to Pepp & Delores for my husband's birthday and they couldn't have made it any more special! When we arrives the hostess wished him a happy birthday and our waitress arrived promptly after being seated. We started with the ricotta and grilled bread and artichoke alla giudia as appetizers then ordered the butternut and mascarpone pasta and swiss chard and sausage pasta to split. Our waitress also brought over a complementary birthday eggplant involtini which was delicious. We were so impressed with the staff and the extra precautions they took to make us feel safe and welcomed. I would highly recommend visiting Pepp & Delores in or out of COVID!
Our server was not friendly at all. We went for a birthday and he didn’t acknowledge it or bring out a dessert or even offer dessert. It was an amazing restaurant with great food, but our waiter really brought down the vibe.
Was hoping to sit downstairs but was notified upon arrival that it was closed
First time for our anniversary after many recommendations!
Loved everything. The restaurant is chic and the lower level gives a cool speak easy vibe. The manager Natalie brought over Prosecco to start for our anniversary. The artichokes, eggplant and meatballs are a must have! Can’t wait to return.
We got together for a friends birthday- the variety of food was good and the pasta dishes were outstanding. The ambiance and decor were also very nice.
No wonder it was difficult to get a reservation. We cannot wait to return! Our food was excellent and priced very fairly. Our waiter was great and the atmosphere very energetic and upbeat. Cannot recommend any higher.
This was at least our 4th time at Pepp and Delores-we brought our friends-it was their first time and we were celebrating a birthday. Nicole was our server and she was so wonderful! The manager stopped by and was great to talk to about all of the photos in the basement where we sat and the history behind Pepp and Delores. We split the artichokes, the crostini funghi and the dunk-all wonderful! Both couples split the light and tasty Bibb salad. Two of us ordered the Limon pasta-delicious. My husband always gets the Sunday sauce which he loves. Our other friend got the peppered pasta-not sure what it is called but he loved it. I think Nicole said it was a new addition. Enjoyed cocktails before, and enjoyed a carafe of the house white with dinner. Ended the birthday celebration with complimentary limoncello and almond cookies. Always a treat to eat here.
Food, service, and ambiance were amazing!! Will recommend this restaurant to everyone
Absolutely loved our experience and meal at Pepp & Delores. The staff were very friendly and helpful. And the food was so delicious that my wife and I are still raving about it the following day. The marinated cucumbers and eggplant were great and the homemade pasta was so very good. Will definitely be back!
