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.
