Family pleaser, 5/31/2008

My taste in Italian food tends toward the simple, uncomplicated entrees that remind me of my childhood spent in Rhode Island, surrounded by Italian friends and many Italian restaurants. I enjoy a... nice dish of pasta with meatballs or sausage, or an order of baked ravioli, lasagna or the like. However, those kinds of meals can be the most difficult to find done well out here in Orange County. The tendency seems to be to try and "dress things up", or cheapen out, adding too much breadcrumb, overly complicated sauces or even carrot chunks to them. We were referred to Peppino's by a neighbor some years ago, and have been loyal customers of their restaurants since, initially the Rockfield location. However we live close to the Towne Center location so have been patronizing that one since it opened. The food is excellent, always fresh and consistent, very good bread and rolls as well. I enjoy a plate of angel hair with a split, one meatball and one sausage. The meatballs are large, with a firm texture and excellent flavor, served with a complimentary, light bodied sauce. The sausage is always excellent, slightly sweet and not heavy or greasy. Their ravioli and lasagna is superb as well. We've had dinner there with family members and friends on several occasions, and they've ordered many items from their diverse menu, including chicken marsala, linguini with clams, and various pizzas, and always been pleased and complimentary to the food. It's a good value for the money also.

Great Food - Poor Service, 5/28/2008

Peppino's has some of the best food around. However the Foothill Ranch site has very slow service. We waited over an hour for our food. It was great once we received it -

Friendly staff

It seems people only write when they have complaints. 4 lousy reviews doesn't describe the friendly atmosphere and some good dishes to enjoy. Not that I've tried them all, but some of my favorites are the Caprese Salad, Veal Piccata and the Lina Rolls. Their bread is great too! The portions are generous but not grotesque. People that like their service should give their 2 cents too!

Most horrible Italian Food ever! Worse than Olive Garden!!!

The worst food I have ever had, including the grubs I have to eat on Wiener Island in the Galapagos chain. Absolutely horrible in every aspect, from service to food. Thought I was being harsh so I tried it twice. Every time I think of this place, I want to hurl. Even a caveman knows what red sauce is, and that is pretty bad. I would rather eat feces.

NEVER GOING BACK THERE AGAIN!

I tried this place for the first time this past weekend which is funny because I just live right up the street from it and I will never go back. The wait time for a friday night wasn't that bad but there was no waiting room. You had to wait outside in the cold or get lucky to sit inside on one of the four chairs they had sitting by the door that remained open so you still had the cold breeze. finally our table was ready and they wanted to put me and my boyfriend crammed on the side wall right next to some other party. I said "" There is no way that we are sitting over there"" So we went back and stood vy the door to wait another ten minutes to be seated in the aisle but right next to this other couple. It was almost like we were sitting at their table that is how close you are to people. Horrible place to take for a date. No privacy whatsoever. We purposly took our time so we can move the other couples table against ours which was only about 5 inches away when they left so they can't seat other people next to us. Our waitress was hardly around when we needed refils. We spent a little over 70 dollars on horrible food! NEVER AGAIN!

Disgusting

Like the other reviewer said, the pizza here is just awful. I tried both the thick crust and thin crust pizzas and I think I could get better pizza from the frozen food section of the neighborhood grocery store. The toppings are scant, and worst of all, they use that off-white gluey ""cheese"" that never melts and has a slimy consistency. How they were able to expand to 7 locations is the biggest mystery of all. Avoid this place like the plague.

The worst pizza in OC

I have no idea what the people are thinking that rate this pizza highly. My wife and I literaaly threw away the entire pie after attempting to eat one slice.
