If this is your first time please be patient, the wait staff is a bit gritty. They professional at what they do. Once you order, the food is delicious. All is made to order. Do not expect an extensive wine list, only homemade red or white Please show up with cash!!!! No credit cards accepted. I would definitely go again... More

Not the prettiest or the quietest. Service can be a little rushed and haphazard. The food however is the best you can get anywhere. Over the years I keep coming back for the quality. In over 30 years I have never had a dish that was not outstanding. This a family style restaurant, all portions are big.

First time visit after many years of hearing about this food institution. Sorry I waited so long and will definitely be back. Everything from the sautéed calamari to the perfectly cooked linguini in marinara sauce to the succulent chicken scarpiello and homemade wine was right on the mark. The staff also hit all the right buttons with their attentiveness and... More

Amazing authentic Italian food! Family style servings and a vintage atmosphere. You won't be disappointed. Service is great too. Couple downsides - No bar and no waiting area. However absolutely worth the trip!

Roasted pepper and sauteed onion salad absolutely a must try. When weenie with White clam sauce tons of fresh clams and garlic. Eggplant Parmesan with delicious sauce and... More

Unbelievably delicious. Best dishes I've tried: linguini with white clam sauce is so good it puts all other pasta in the world to shame and makes all other shell fish irrelevant. Veal Don Peppe -- crisp breaded veal with tomato and onion salad is my favorite thing in the world to eat. The atmosphere is what it is -- white... More

I moved away from NY 4 years ago to be with family. I can honestly say I miss NY and one of the things I miss the most --- is Don Pepe's. This is far and away the best Italian restaurant in NYC, maybe the world. My order would consist of baked clams, zuppa de clams and angle hair and... More

I came here on a Sunday afternoon with 2 great friends, one of which is Italian like myself so we grew up with and know good Italian food. We sat down or tried to and noticed the chairs were greasy and filthy so one of our friends gave us wipes to clean our chairs. I'm already turned off. But I... More
