A definite place to try. Nice decor, and ambiance. Staff was polite and professional and not artificially "sweet." Five of us for a business dinner and all thought the food was very good. And I must say the soup I had was very, very good. The chicken I had was good but not outstanding. The others loved their dinners, steak... More

Didn't complain, didn't send it back, just didn't eat it. Waitress asked if we liked the soup "eh not really." Waiting for the next course-... More

From start to finish it was a wonderful dining experience. Dinner was exquisite and portioned just right. The Travaglini Gattinara Tre Vigne was the perfect wine pairing to our meals. Mary was a wonderful server, she is a real pro! We are never disappointed when we dine here!

We enjoyed a wonderful meal of lobster bisque soup, and Mediterranean Sea Bass plus a fabulous double chocolate torte. Service was excellent by Amanda. Great dining experience.

PepeNero moved from their small space in "The Commons" to a much larger and very well appointed new space in the next building. This was our first visit to the new venue with its expanded menu and it didn't disappoint! The group tried the veal, salmon and pasta and they were wonderful. there's a very nice wine list with selections... More

Personally I'm so disappointed that I hadn't been to this wonderful restaurant sooner! We began with the Zuppa del giorno (Mushroom venutata) and the Stilton...fabulous! Then for the 'Primi' we chose the Linguine! 'Secondi' Vitello (boneless top loin veal scalloppine) Pesce Del Giorno which was a Mediterranean Sea Bass that day! OUTSTANDING...and for dessert do not miss the "Affogado del... More

Wonderful Italian fare in a fabulous setting. Great selection, all high-quality. Located in the renovated old state hospital which provides the opportunity to browse and shop before or after. Highly recommended!

We ate here on a snowy night. Here is what we liked: - an interesting tasty Italian salami and cheese and nut/olive appetizer board for sharing - pretty atmosphere in the restaurant - homemade pasta, I liked the agnolotti stuffed with cheese and mushrooms - good Italian wine with lots of choices on the wine list - the homemade soup...
