PEPeNERO Cucina Italiana

One night, Hubby was craving for thin crust pizza so we decided to go to one of my favorite Italian place, Pepenero. We went to the one located at Sudirman. It was around 9pm when we reached there and the place was not really packed considering it was over dinner time. 

One of the reason I like Pepenero is the complimentary breads that are different from other Italian restaurants. To me, so far theirs are the best. I like the fact that they were generous on it. Full basket of breads, fried crunchy dumpling skin and I never sure whether it was cheese sticks but it was yummy. They also served us complimentary bruschetta. Only by snacking the free items had made my tummy half full.

That night, we chose Anelli di calamari and cipolla all italiana (calamari and onion rings golden fried with special sauce and tartar sauce) 62k, Pizza capricciosa (tomato sauce, mozarella, mushrooms, italian sausage, black olives, artichoke) 59k and Risotto portobello and porchetta (homemade Italian risotto served with portobello mushrooms and pancetta pork belly in an aromatic white truffle oil infusion) 64k.

All the food were delicious. I like how they fried the calamari so crunchy in the batter yet tender in the inside. The onion rings were also cooked well that we can still feel the crunchy crunchy. Love it. The pizza was also very good with generous toppings. However, our favorite that night was the absolute delight risotto. So good, well seasoned, generous portion of portobello mushrooms and pork belly.

Always a good place for an Italian dine!

Good sharing, PepeNero is a pleasant place for a quiet dinner or lunch for 2. Good food and service. One of the few Italian restaurants with my favorite beef tripe (tripo) on the menu. See my blog about PepeNero at:
