Everything at Pepp & Dolores was fantastic. From the ambience to the service to the food, all perfect! We had the Lobster and the Pesto pasta dishes, and both were phenomenal. We were given the eggplant appetizer on the house and it might have been my favorite part of the meal. Absolutely would recommend P&D and will be returning!

Great food and service- felt a little rushed to clear the table when we wanted to sit and enjoy our $44 bottle of wine more, but the complimentary glass of prosecco and italian cookies were a nice touch for our Anniversary! The lack of dessert menu was a bummer, but otherwise all the food was fantastic. Very clean and compliant with current regulations. We'll be back!

Fresh, light salads, outstanding daily made pastas, contorni and appetizers in an atmosphere of casual ambience. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. The Italian wine list is quite interesting and offers wines from a variety of regions in a variety of price ranges. Traditional Italian recipes with a fresh sensibility, great atmosphere and choice of indoor or outdoor dining make this a perfect dinner choice.

Every time I am here I love this place even more. Granted I have ordered the pasta limone every time but it’s because even the next day I want to go back and get more. Fried artichokes are amazing. As is the eggplant involtini and cucumber with ricotta.

A wonderful time dining outdoors. The manager bent over backwards to make sure we were seated outdoors even though reservations are normally just for indoor. Our waitress was awesome and even gave us a free order of fried artichokes for my wife’s birthday. The food was delicious. Would highly recommend

The service was as wonderful as the meal. Our server was knowledgeable and her recommendations were delightful. We were able to sit outside and the aesthetics made all the difference.

We were able to get a same day reservation with in just an hour of our selection.

I was excited for dinner as it was my first dinning experience with them. They did not disappoint.

It’s just good solid pasta. The menu isn’t particularly challenging or trying to be overly foodie. But I mean that as a complement. It’s extremely accessible food that tastes fresh and delicious. Really loved the ricotta to start, the Sunday sauce pasta dish, and the Arrabbiata with just the right amount of spice. And it’s extremely affordable. Just a complete win.

Superb Italian choice. Servers were lovely. Wonderful pasta dishes. Great value!! Our first visit but we will return soon. My only issue was no dessert and we were a little too close to the sound system. Minor at best. Try it, you will like it!

First time out with just the wife since pandemic started. Hit this spot by recommendation of many of our friends. So glad we followed their lead! Great staff. Amazing food. Lots of wine and good beer options. Food was truly exquisite in every way. Ricotta bread appetizer and artichokes were great. We had two pasta dishes, both being delicious. Couldn’t be happier with the food. Service was spot on. The team took all appropriate precautions during the pandemic as they give a good example of how our new normal can be successful and enjoyable. Great work all around. Can’t wait to go back!

Pasta is not my favorite food but, as far as pasta goes, this restaurant’s version was impressive. Moreover, their prices were very reasonable.
