In true Italian style, dishes are made with only the freshest and highest quality ingredients available. We source produce from area farmers (like basil, aromatic herbs, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, milk and not only). Combined with the finest imported ingredients from Italy - pine nuts, extra virgin olive oil, traditional cheeses and meats, PepeNero does not just approximate the cuisine of Italy, it’s the real thing. Our menu is filled with regional Italzian dishes (with an emphasize on Sicily) - that have been prepared that way for generations. So, out of respect for Italian gastronomy - and our grandparents - we maintain a no modification policy. Our goal is to give you a distinctly Italian experience. Even though you’re not in Italy (and probably not even Italian!) we work tirelessly to make you feel that way. It is with this simple thought in mind that we invite you to join us to celebrate and be a part of our family! Benvenuti & Buon Appetito!
