Aside from the wonderful view on the patio, this place is just a solid choice for tasty Italian food and pizza. I've used them many times over the years for their catering, as well. Eggplant Rollatini and Chicken Cardinale (not always on the menu) are my two faves. When I serve the eggplant at events people always rave and ask... More

We have been to several different Peppino's restaurants but my favorite is on Lake Mission Viejo. A must is to sit on the patio overlooking the water. Be sure to try the Rigatoni Ala Gina, although we have never had a dinner that was not scrumptious!

Great lake location and popular spot for locals. The menu is traditional Italian with pizza and pretty big. The food is good, the happy hour is a great deal but you have to sit in the not so big bar which fills up quickly.

A family favorite of ours for many years. Their first restaurant in Lake Forest expanded to the lake in Mission Viejo which made our day. Love the taste of this family restaurant.

After years of eating at most of Peppino's locations I discovered happy hour in the bar at Peppino's Lake Mission Viejo. Every day all day when you sit in the bar. Beer wine and well specials and smaller portions of your favorite dishes. The staff goes out of the way to make sure you are comfortable and have all you... More

We like the Peppinos on Lake Mission Viejo. They have a nice outdoor patio, with heaters, to watch the boats They offer everything from pizza to family-style Italian food. There is a small bar area in the front. Parking can be difficult. A great place for the whole family.

My husband and I eat here frequently and its always good. We have tried the majority of the menu. Located on Lake Mission Viejo so be sure to ask for a table on the patio.

Peppino's is a great go to Italian restaurant. Very pleasant atmosphere, not too loud, nicely decorated and really good service. The food is not 100% authentic Italian, but the variety and choices are very good. Prices are reasonable although maybe a bit on the high side, but you definitely get your money's worth. The wait at the Foothill Ranch restaurant... More

Definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in the area. Staff is great and the food won't disappoint. Just really top notch. The only item that is average is the Gnocchi, but I usually find that most restaurants that serve Gnocchi are pretty similar since you can tell they use a restaurant supplier and it's not homemade.
