Wy wife, I, and some friends ate at Peppe's recently. The cuisine is Italian and excellent. We live in Italy part of the year and eat the local cuisine. Peppe's would be a place to go to if it were in Italy and should be a place to go in Kirkwood. The menu is up-scale Italian with a continental flair. The owner is very personable and keeps an eye on everything from the kitchen to the dining room. The staff is excellent, helpful, and knowledgeable of the menu, recommending items to accommodate one's palate.

We tried Pepe's Apt 2 for the first time on a busy weekend night. They have beautiful garden terrace seating area that we chose over the noisy inside tables. Our server was new & very inexperienced. The food varied from outstanding veal & a halibut special to a very heavy and below average ribbon pasta with shrimp & a few tiny mushrooms in a heavy cream sauce that left much to be desired. If your tastes run toward classical old fashioned Italian, you may enjoy this place but if you are looking for a more modern & lighter version of old favorites, you might not like it.

had not been to peppe's in a bout a yea r. since it is very close to our home we went early in the evening on thursday. we were greeted and seated by our server,lucy, who has waited on his many times before. one of the strengths of peppe's if they appear to have very little turnover among the staff. lucy is very good at here job without being obnoxious. we started with some wines by the glass. my wife's chardonnay was very good mine was just ok.. i followed that with an italian red which i had never heard of and it was very g ood. we shared a salad which was good an d just the right amount. we both got specials, halibut for my wife, and rigatoni with tenderloin tidbits in a light creme sauce. they were both outstanding. we shared a dessert which was quite good. would happily go again. this is not a cheap place to eat but the prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food, thegreat service and the convivial surroundings. peppe himself is always there and makes it to each table sometime during the evening

Very noisy restaurant. Difficult to hear across a small table.
Special Dover Sole was over cooked and very average.
Pasta dish was just okay.
Reasonable wine list and prices.
Desserts were average.
Find a quiet table and the experience will be better.

First off, The décor is to die for both inside and out. The service far surpassed any other, we dined for a family event. All the food was amazing and the nicest and most attentive staff. I would recommend this restaurant for family dinners, a romantic night, or private party in heart beat.
