Peppino's Italian Family Restaurant
Peppino's remodeled restaurant on the Lake. Along with remodeling the kitchen, we have expanded the dining area, added a new full service bar with a waiting lounge and a front patio for dining. The rear-dining terrace has been expanded and offers a beautiful view of Lake Mission Viejo.
The meatball calzone was absolutely incredible! The last time I had such a great tasting calzone was over 16 years ago on my honeymoon. Our waitress was friendly, polite and very accommodating. Other available wait staff stopped by to see if they could be of assistance when they thought we were searching for our waitress, when in fact, we were just looking around the place. We will definitely return to this restaurant for future family dinners.
From the pickiest eater around.... this place was very very good. It was too hot out to sit on the lake, so we ate inside. The food was great. I would have liked to have hot bread and I suspect it was hot at one point because it had that crunchy texture of being heated previously. The portions are very big and the sauce reminded me of being back in New York. The service was very good. She didn't refill my water but she was very pleasant.
Peppino's quality has always been very consistent, we have eaten at many of their restaurants and we have always left happy and full. It's a great family restaurant, but the service sometimes was slow and our waitress was not knowledgeable to help a family of six. Pizza is above average. Sea food is very good. Over all as a family we recommend this restaurant for a short distance travel.
Good Italian Family style restaurant. Lots of action and noise to keep everyone entertained. The pizza is excellent, due t othe wonderful flavoring in the sauce, but make sure you try the egg plant parmesan...you will not be disappointed. Newly rennovated bar area will quench most people's thirst.
