“Fabulous dinner experience”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

Pepenero is definately a great place for Good food and wine. It is a simple tastefully warm welcoming hidden gem in Central business district worth looking for.

The restaurent has always given us the best experience as a diner on each visit. The staff are warm and friendly, chef create Fabulous food that brings smile and hunger for his next surprise dishes that never fails our eyes as work of art nor our stomach and taste buds bursting with flavours.

Some of the must try dishes, the Green Asparagus soup with tiger prawns and artichokes, Risotto with saffron and foie gras, Pasta with sea archin and Roe mullet, The Grilled beef tenderlion one of my favourite dish that is so tender and succulent that it melt in your mouth .
As for the wine, go for Edizione. A beautiful rich ripe easy to drink full bodied exquisite wine for a fraction of price or the Tenuta dell Ornellaia Masseto which is not listed in the wine list.

It is a reasonable price restaurent with good quality ingredients that won't cost an arm or a leg to have a beautiful meal. I always look forward or find an excuse to visit Pepenero. It is truely a good restaurent .

“Seriously Good”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

We went there for dinner on Saturday night. Decor simple but very elegant. Staff were warm, friendly and professional. We elected to go with the Chef's choice of menu for the evening rather than order off the menu so each course was a surprise. It was really fabulous food. Fresh, clean flavours. There was nothing "simple" about this food though - it was extremely well prepared and presented. It is a skilled chef who can prepare complicated food but make it feel effortless on the palate. I almost never eat everything served on a plate in a restaurant but I did at this one. This is not a stodgy Pizza/Pasta restaurant of which there are so many in Singapore. The quality of the food made us feel like we were back in Italy. It doesn't get better than that. The prices were reasonable. The wine list is not extensive but has something for most budgets and tastes. The Sommelier was knowledgeable without being pompous and he also served as the Matre d' - overseeing the workings of the restaurant and making sure the clients were being taken care of. Chef Marco makes a point of visiting each table during the evening. He's passionate about his food and he is very, very good at what he does. To be honest, I was in two minds about posting a review - for purely selfish reasons - because the more people who know about it, the harder it will be to get a table. In the end though, I couldn't keep this a secret. If you know anything about good Italian food - you will love this place.
