I've heard about this place for years and finally went there since it was my turn to pick the Family Dinner Out. Having to order in a line was a let down. Sticky table top. Overpriced all the way 'round. Curt waitress. Will not be back. I think this place peaked in the early 90's. I can only assume that... More

The food was pretty good, but fifty bucks for two large 1-tops and a sub? BEWARE THE MENU ON TRIPADVISOR. It is completely inaccurate. It lists items they don't have and prices way lower than they really are. I'd rate them lower but it's not the restaurants fault TA got it wrong

This place has been my favorite pizza for 20 years starting when they were in downtown Athens in an old gym. Happily surprised to see the have pre-made calzones and Stromboli when I stopped for lunch a few weeks ago. This makes for another fast option besides the slice/salad lunch specials. Stromboli had cheese, pepperoni, sausage, onions and green peppers.... More

Great pizza and calzones. Great tasting dough and plenty toppings. Last our order but made up for with a pitcher free beer. Nothing better than pizza free beer.

All I have ever ordered here has been the pizza. My family thinks it is the best pizza we have had anywhere. You won't find anywhere that has the same type crust or spices. Absolutely delicious.

Went for an early dinner on a Sunday. They weren't too busy at that time. We opted for salad bar to accompany our pizza. I wish I'd seen the "salad bar" before purchasing. Lacking is putting it nicely and definitely not worth the almost $4 price. The pizza looked great but was burned on the bottom. We got a tiramisu... More

Peppino's developed a loyal following over many years with a restaurant in downtown Athens, and folks celebrated when Joe Cortese opened up in new digs at the very end of South Milledge, out past the State Botanical Garden and the UGA Livestock Instructional Arena. Anyway, the pizza is still (usually) excellent, the strombolis hot, submarine sandwiches big, and the beer... More

I got a take out pizza from Peppino's a couple days ago and it was amazing. All the food was nicely together, and there wasn't food that was burnt or messed up. The presentation of the our take out was nice and neat. Not too fancy, but it didn't look sloppy. I definitely recommend to go there if you want... More

My husband chose the "meat lovers" pizza. It was wonderful. I am very picky regarding pizza. This was fresh, hot, and the dough was obviously freshly made. It was worth the slight detour!
