We were visiting friends & this is one of their favorites. We were seated immediately, as it was not crowded. The atmosphere is very nice with semi-low lighting. We started off with their tasty breads & glasses of Chianti & draft beers. We ordered angel hair pasta with pesto, a meat manicotti, & a large pizza, all very good. We asked for their shredded parm, but have discontinued it & replaced it with shakers that appear to be out of a can. Points off for that. We ordered 2 small salads with mozzarella with the cheese costing extra. That’s kind of “cheesy”. Dinner for 4 was $115 before tip. I think they could throw in the cheese & upgrade the parm.

This lovely Italian restaurant has become our favorite go-to restaurant since we have moved to the area. Been here just three months and have eaten here four or five times already. We keep getting something new each time and have loved everything. My wife loves their selection of martinis and I love their extensive menu and that everything is cooked to order.

Had a take out lunch order for 3 of us on Tuesday, 04/24, and then went back on Friday, 04/27 for a late lunch.
My Tuesday lunch was Fra DiAvolo with Mostaccioli. Sauce was very good. I can't hold them to the pasta being overdone due to it being takeout and the time between cooking and it's arrival.
Friday lunch was Veal Parm with Mostaccioli, Another very good meal. Common complaint of mine; pasta was plated without being dressed.
Server Oscar was a great guy; we chatted after my colleagues left and I stayed for a digestivo.
I'd recommend it and I'll go back again when in the area.

Peppino's is THE place to go for excellent Italians food!! I've been a patron for over 30 years. I rememner when tbe original location in Lake Forest was "cash only"! Over the years, the restaurant has remained consistently excellent in all respects.
