Great food and atmosphere, goo prices and did not feel rushed at all
Simple and delicious neighborhood gem
Enjoyed some delicious pasta and salad here. Also some yummy house wine for happy hour:)
Background music was too loud, a constant drum beat, which eventually got softer, perhaps someone complained. Silence or soft piano background would have been much better.
Consistently cheap and cheerful. Good food, good service.
Shrimp salad tasty . Greek salad disappointing . Yellow lettuce the rare piece of feta, would not order this again. Chicken Parm also disappointing.breaded but not crispy, cheese not yummy, just odd, not what you expect. The pizzas looked great, but we didn't order because trying to eat less bread. You can hear people at your table which is nice.
very good food served really quickly. ver small restaurant.
Pepe Giallo is always good. Simple Italian food cooked well. It is a great neighborhood restaurant.
All of the pastas are great, and they always have good fish too. I haven't tried the pizza yet, but I hear it's great. Definitely great value and great quality food!
Great southern Italian food!
Food was barely mediocre. Drink list was limited. Heavy oil on food. Menu seemed like a step up from Oliver Garden. After the appetizer and a drink we decided to leave.
Great local Italian spot. Simple, straight-forward and tasty Italian food - no surprises or gimmicks. Very reasonable prices too! Beautiful enclosed rear dining room - very warm and charming. Will definitely be back!
Pepe Giallo is a great find! Delicious food in a nice, laid back environment. Very reasonable prices too. There is a garden seating area in the rear.
Moderately priced, basic, good Italian food. Excellent service, seating is a bit tight.
The food was delicious! I had the trout and my friend had a seafood with pasta. Pasta was cooked perfectly! We really enjoyed it and will go back!
Our absolute favorite restaurant in Chelsea!
Cuisine beyond delicious!
Can't wait to return!
Delightful atmosphere in the Garden Room. Wonderful food and excellent service. Moderate prices make Pepe Giallo one of my favorites places to dine. Great spot to go with friends.
Delicious food and great service, as always. Love being back in the garden/atrium room too.
Attentive yet unobtrusive service, perfect food, charming and low key atmosphere, unbeatable prices...
great food great scene. love the food and service. wonderful neighborhood place.
Hits the spot. Great neighborhood spot and great ambiance.
Delicious food at very reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere, with a comfortable sound level allowing you to converse with your dining companions. Worth going out of your way for this wonderful find.
We selected this place based on the many great reviews, but it didn't match the expectation.
The waiter was nice, but he repeatedly came to our table and interrupted our conversation without pausing or saying "excuse me". That would have been fine, until we were half way through our appetizer and our entrees came. The server didn't ask if we were finished or ready. There was no room on the table, and by the time we were finished with our first course, our dishes were cold because they had to sit. The meal was mediocre - vegetables seemed like they had been reheated (by the texture, not the temperature), and the salmon was dry.
The food was Teri le (pizza was raw and had little flavor, the fish was over cooked and the sauce seemed like it was taken from a can.). In addition we were seated outside and got cold, but even with empty tables, they refused to let us sit inside. Overall, terrible experience.
We loved our food and the wonderful server..(Tucker). BUT the wine was a really small glass...not even 6 oz.
Mediocre food, good service.
Back patio area was fantastic
A nice place for a casual lunch. Not as good as at the previous location.
Came here for an early dinner, 4:30 pm, before a show. Decor is lovely. The restaurant was almost empty, so it was quiet, my pasta with mushrooms, peas, and broccoli, oil and garlic was great. My friend and I had a small pizza which we enjoyed too. The servers were very pleasant and professioanl. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Come here quite often and always have an excellent meal. But this time my dish penne pasta with meatballs was just ok. Sauce seemed like it was burnt or over cooked. The wait staff practically threw the plates on the table and ran off. We had to ask for water for the table and were never given bread. Will be back to see if it happens again. The place was busy but the food and service should never suffer. We tried the pizza for the first time was just ok.
Amazing food, quick service. Tourists from the UK who found this via trip advisor, absolutely no regrets. 🤤🤤🤤🤤
Our neighborhood 'go to' place. Had friends from England and wanted them to enjoy a tasty casual dinner. Pepe Giallo fit the bill exactly. Always reliable and fun with cheerful courteous service. Highly recommended.
Great meal in a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Service was perfect, the food was outstanding.
This is not fine dining. Felt more like a village coffee shop than an Italian restaurant. Ford was ok but portions were small and overpriced.
First time to Pepe Giallo. Service was excellent. Beautiful arugala and pear salad, $25 seafood risotto was a good value with lobster, baby calamari and mussels. Flourless chocolate cake with ice cream was beyond delicious! Only suggestion is that they add decaf coffee, American or expresso to the after-dinner offerings. I would have enjoyed an espresso or cappuccino with my dessert but no caffeine for me at that hour.
