My review of Peppino's may be somewhat influenced by the fact that I am not Italian, am not supremely familiar with Italian foods, and simply am unable to visualize foods with names such as: Cozze e Vongolette Allo Vino, Bistecca A'Asso, or Insalata Di Caesar. For me, spaghetti, ravioli, and pizza are about as Italian as I am able to understand, lol.
Anyway, this is a nice little restaurant that is outside of Erie by a few miles and if you are really looking for a nice variety of Italian food I would recommend stopping by. The interior is nicely decorated and fairly up to date - everything is clean and orderly, staff are well matched for this type of restaurant and seem to have a good working knowledge of the daily specials and menu. Maybe it's just me but when the wait staff visits the table for one of the first times and spends nearly five minutes reciting the specials and such I am off in la-la land. Then again, some folks like that sort of stuff.
Our waitress did a fair job but truth be told there were a few times that I was sipping my drink for five or ten minutes waiting for another. Our appetizer was very nice and the warm bread that was served tasted great also. Everyone enjoyed their meals, I ordered ravioli since I was able to visualize exactly what those were.
In closing, I would not mind stopping by again if the menu had pictures or I had thirty minutes to have the wait staff provide a detailed description of all the available menu items.
