Went tonight, wonderful food, service and very authentic. My new favorite TC place to eat!! Anti pasta platter was delicious, entrees were good and the Tiramisu was excellent!

One of the freshest meals I've ever had. The menu looks very simplistic but don't walk away....every bite of my dinner burst with flavor and freshness! We had one eggplant/zucchini appetizer and ordered another - we couldn't believe how good it was. My homemade pasta dinner melted in my mouth; all of the ingredients tasted like they just came out of the garden. Service was perfect, wine selection was perfect. The panicotta was to die for. Well done!!

We were seated behind the check in counter. Don't know why because they weren't crowded. Would have liked to have been seated somewhere else in the restaurant but didn't feel that was an option. The portions were small, but it was nice to have unique dishes. Chef came out at the end of our dinner to ask how everything was. Probably won't come back here on our next visit to Traverse City.

Went to Pepenero for lunch while in TC. Found this place in the Commons, formerly the State Mental Hospital. We took time to stop for lunch and really enjoyed it. My wife and I shared a Insalata Capricciosa and Baked Rigatoni Al Forno. It was delicious. Our friends had the special which was a chicken breast with a lemony caper sauce. It two was excellently prepared. Both the owners came to the table to see how things were, they were very gracious and rightfully proud of what they serve. The prices were good, the food delicious and the service was excellent. We would recommend it if you are in the area.
