We have been going to Peppino's for easily 15 years. Over the last year we have noticed a dramatic slip in detail, management and customer service.\r

I've been taking my friends to Peppino's for over 25 year and they have just gotten better over the years. I've also been to parties where they catered and wish I had brought a big Tupperwear purse. I love Peppino's and applaud them for many years of excellent service, food and atmosphere.

Pescetori is great enough for 2, I split it with my wife every time. The martini bar is pretty good when you can find a seat. Service is ok, use to be excellent, might just have been a bad night the last time.

Good homemade Italian food. The portions are big and the menu has every old favorite you would want. The bread is wonderful. The Martini's are served with shaved ice floating in them. Every pasta you would want, fresh pizza and even a few veal dishes

The set up is pretty nice in the restaurant and is perfect for a party of 2 or larger parties. Sometimes though the service can be a little slow with more people attending for dinner. It's a family owned restaurant so those are usually better than chain restaurants. Personally I think the pizza is pretty good though some may argue otherwise. Their pasta dishes are usually filling as well. Overall it's a pretty relaxed place and the food is good so give it's worth a try.

I have been coming here for years and love the Peppino Roll! Definitely a great italian food place. Make sure to come on a slow night as the wait can get pretty long.

My family took me here for my birthday and it was yummy. i wasnt too impressed with the setup, (you are really close to the other tables) or the really hard bread (i'm sure some people like it like that but i am not a fan) but the main dish was so good! i got the tortillini premavera (spelled wrong i am sure:)). it was so good but very rich. make sure you bring your appetite because when i went to eat the left overs i almost threw up when i saw how the sauce had seperated.... anyway it is good while you are in the restaurant.

Five of us travelled to the Peppinos in Lake Forest from Villa Park. We had been to this location several times. Two of the party we children 12 years of age (they will be 13 in 9 months. They ordered off the children's menu. We ordered calimari for an appetizer. It was rubbery, small portion & what wasn't rings were tiny pieces of breading. We told our server & his response was "that can't be good". We let it pass & when the bill came we saw that we were charged for drinks for the children. When it was brought to his attention his answer was (after going back to kitchen) that they would let it pass this time but not to do it in the future. The future is 9 months in the future. He was definitely annoyed when we pointed out that he had taken the children's order with no problem or comment. He was at the point of being surly & definitely annoyed. We were disappointed with the food & certainly with the service. When we mentioned the calimari he certainly should have spoken to the menu instead of a smart answer. He couldn't have been less interested whether we were pleased or not.

We sat down got some bread that was very dry. Waited 45 minutes for a 22 dollar pizza. When the cook put the pizza on the counter for the waitress to bring it to us, I could already see that it was a burnt piece of bread. The crust crumbled in my hands when I picked it up! Go to Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Chuck E Cheese! I ended up going across the street to taco bell/ pizza hut and there pizza was 20 times better!!! Peppinos Sucks! Costco has better pizza (BY FAR!!!). What a waist of time for high dollar crap!

i thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant with my boyfriend. The food is just like that in Italy, and is deceiving by how comparitively inexpensive it is to other restaurants.

I went with a group of friends and we were all able to walk right in. We were treated like family and the slices of pizza were amazing! I highly recommed this place to anyone looking for a little old school pizza.

I've been taking my friends to Peppino's for over 20 years. I've never, ever had a bad meal there and I've never been disappointed. They've gotten bigger and more expensive over the years, but I'd still go there in a heartbeat. I'm happy to see them expanding to more cities in so cal!

This is a basic italian food place with the standard pastas, soups, etc. And all of them are done well. They have great meatballs! The also have other locations around Orange County. I have been to Peppino's many times and have never been disappointed with anything.
