We are stopping in the resort, and the day doubled up as a bit of a celebration, so we booked in at Peppino's and went all out. The food was very nice, and the setting was really nice. The staff were really friendly and would do anything for you. However, if you like wine (or champagne in our case) be prepared to spend a lot more on the wine than the meal.

It's not the place that you can eat in every night, but as a treat, it is certainly worth it.

5 star service. 5 star food. 5 star wine list. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Comprehensive menu with beautifully cooked and presented food. We ate here on our last night, wished we had tried it earlier and could have eaten here again.

I had an evening meal at Peppino, while staying at Shangri-La Tanjung Aru for a few days.
The ambience in the restaurant is excellent but the continuous piped music and loud music from the adjoining Borneo Lounge, every time the entry door was opened was a nuisance.
Service, from being greeted at the entry and shown to the table, plus the wait service was excellent.
I started with an excellent crispy calamari entrée. It was crisp and the texture was brilliant. Not a sign of the rubbery texture that is so often encountered. Good breads and dipping oil was also served. For main I had a risotto which was a little moist for my taste. The tiramisu, for desert was very average, dry in texture, and gave the impression of being purchased offsite.
The two glasses of champagne were good but a later glass of wine was good but delivered from a sort of dispenser rack. Not good for a restaurant striving to position itself at the top end of the market. There was the same sort of system in the Borneo Lounge. Ok for a venue like that.
A little more attention to detail could elevate Peppino to a top class restaurant.
