    Wow! Pepp and Deloris was amazing all around! Tia our waitress was so attentive to our party that was celebrating my Husbands 60th (leap 15th) Birthday! She let us taste the wine, keep our waters filled and cleaned our table when needed. Her recos were right on ~ the bread and cheese with artichokes were amazing for appetizer and the Wedge salad and pastas were just as delicious!! The value for these meals were perfect and all the wines are from Italy! The atmosphere was so cozy and made us all happy and made it the best place celebrate!! We WILL be back and ask for Tia!

    The limone pasta was the best sauce I’ve ever had. The artichoke appetizer was amazing as well. The downstairs is quiet and intimate giving speakeasy vibes.

    I’m so sad we waited so long to come here. Some of the best Italian I’ve had in Cincinnati! And much better price point than some of the others that people talk about liking. Very reasonable and fabulous food. And the service was wonderful.

    Our waiter Brian made took our experience To another level! I have been many times but my friend had never been. He was a joy from the minute he stepped to our table until we were done. He never rushed us and spent time having conversations with us. Of course the food was amazing as always but Brian made this experience so much better!

    Everything was outstanding, including the food, the service, the decor. We particularly enjoyed the variety of menu items, and these slight twist to traditional Italian servings. Their carpaccio was outstanding. Even though the Bill appetizer was good, I am not a fan of deep fried and breaded items. Therefore, the next time I would take a pass on this otherwise everything was outstanding.

    Very good food and the service was nice. Drinks were delicious and didn’t take long to get. Only hiccup was that my entree took awhile to get to me due to a mishap between the kitchen and the server. It arrived about 20 minutes after my girlfriend’s arrived. It was removed from the bill without protest so that was very nice of them.

    We have ordered from here for takeout a few times and have always enjoyed it, but never remembered to dine in until last second. Staff were great! Arrived early for reservation, drinks at the bar were made well, food was perfect and came out fast! Server(s) were great, can’t remember the name of them but one was in training and did an amazing job! Restaurant was very clean. Prices are very fair and competitive, especially compared to other local restaurants. Came to celebrate fiancées 27th bday and Valentine’s Day. Staff took the note into consideration! Highly recommend.

    We had not ordered yet. There was slippery food on the floor of the round booth in the back Of Pepp and Dolores restaurant. The food was on the floor around the back end of the table, and when I set my feet down they were actually “sliding” on 2-3” pieces of wet food scraps. It was nasty and slippery. I let our waiter know, and he blew it off by saying that it was swept early in the morning, Explain to him that it felt like remnants of a meatball or pasta dish. Once again, no effort, except that he would take note of it. I was embarrassed in front of the rest of our company to say anything further. Effort should have been made to pull the table out and quickly sweep. We had not ordered yet. I reluctantly told him I would just keep my feet on the pedestal of the table, Which I did…  We had not ordered yet. We had not ordered yet… The food was incredible. The waiter was personable. It did not make up for something, not being done about the floor.
