I love eating here, the caprese salad is always good, just make sure you let them know how you wanted your traditional chicken wings will be fried. The white sauce pasta with veal and lamb is a must try entree, you will love it.

Service is always outstanding and food exceeds expectations. We have been eating at Peppinos since 1984 when it was a small Italian restaurant in Lake Forest and have never been disappointed.
