Plenty of variety on the menu and the food is stunning, from the presentation to the quality, it could rival any top London restaurant.

We enjoyed two meals at Peppinos. The staff are professional and very friendly. The pizza and gnocchi were great. Very pleasant experience. Good place to bring the kids too.

I ordered a grilled Atlantic Chod and it was cooked to perfection. Great wine to choose from, but can do better with drafted beer selection. I would love to come back again.
