About the restaurant
an intimate 48-seat neighborhood restaurant in royal oak, michigan. we strive to be thoughtful about the food we plate, atmosphere we create, & energy we spread.

our goal at beppé is simple: to be intentional about the food & drink we serve, while fostering a welcoming environment.

whether you love beppé for our house-made pasta, to share with those you love plates, summer patio, thoughtfully curated cocktails, or a quality bottle of wine, we're here to be your spot & can't wait for you to keep coming back.

as a smaller establishment, we feel obligated to accommodate and serve all customers who want to dine with us in a timely manner. with that said, we do have policies limiting length of reservations. groups of 2-3 are allowed 90 minutes. groups 4+ are allowed 120 minutes. we ask that this policy is taken into consideration before choosing to dine with us.

bar seating is first come first serve.

we do not offer separate checks for groups of 5+.

Great experience. Everyone treated us so well. It was a rainy night and we were disappointed. We couldn’t sit on the patio but understood why.  Because our patio reservation couldn’t be honored. We were put in a very simple room kind of on the side without any atmosphere. But the service and food overcame it. It started raining harder and several employees offered us umbrellas when we left and walked us out. They really did go above and beyond. food was superb and again Service was amazing. We’ll go back hopefully next time on their beautiful patio!

Had a great time. Food was delicious. Filet on rock, strip on rock, filet and french dip - all good. They did run out of bread and said 20 minutes. Ended up being 45 and was not the same bread
