Description: We are a Casual Fine dining Italian Restaurant of 15 years. We offer all freshly made to order entrees, as we do not have steam tables in our restaurant. Chef also offers new specials from Italy every week starting on Wen. We offer 10 Italian crafted beers and an all Italian wine menu with both bottles and by the glass. We are in a quint historic old home with 20 tables total inside, and 20 tables on our new screened in covered patio and our open deck. We were rated 4 stars by the Post & Courier and voted best Italian restaurant in Summerville by readers choice. Our owners wife makes our desserts. (Tiramisu, Cannoli, Spumoni (Gelato), Tartufo (Gelato) & Chocolate Hazelnut Torte).

I've eaten at The Red Pepper several times over the past two years and have not been dissapointed with the quality of the food or service. This is a really wonderful small Itallian restaruant that seems to take a lot of pride in the food they serve. The lazania is some of the best I've had anywhere, and the portions are generaous, as are the other dishes on their menu. My wife and I consistently end up taking about half our serving home with us.

What used to be an old house is now a great Italian experience. The atmosphere is very good. The service is also good. The food is served hot and delicious. I had eggplant and my wife had chicken. Along with a good selection of wine, it was a good meal at a slow pace. I did not feel rushed to finish like some large restaurant. Take your time and enjoy yourself.

We visit this restaurant fairly regularly, and it is consistently good. Meals are generous, well presented, and so tasty! The wait staff is great - experienced and knowledgeable, helpful with suggestions.
The "Villa" feel and ambiance is very welcoming
Prices are average for good Italian food

The Red Pepper has very decent Italian food. The Antipasto Misto is excellent and filling with peppers, olives, egg halves, ,prosciuto ham, salami, cheeses on a bed of lettuce with balsamic dressing. Thursday night buy one prime rib and half off for a second. Special deals for wine and other items are offered to patrons on various evenings. Service is good and attentive. Indoor or patio dining available. Full menu for pasta dishes and pizzas. Owners pride themselves on Italian dishes with recipes from the old country e.g. Tuscany. Not gourmet nor exceptional but adequate and you wont leave hungry. Mostly for couples although families are accommodated in a side room or on the patio outside. Interior has booths comfortable for 4 but no more. Bar is separate from main eating areas. Ample parking in the rear.

Nice atmosphere, very good food, reasonable prices and excellent service. Have been here three times, twice for dinner and once for a late lunch. Btw, lunch switches over to dinner at 3pm. Groupon had a 1/2 price deal. Everything was well presented and tasted great. The wait staff we've had have been very helpful regarding the menu. Full bar, inside and outside dining, right on the main drag in Summerville.
