Peppercorn’s Grill and Piccolo Arancio are owned and operated by the Cialfi siblings, Sal and Dino, Brothers Sal and Dino purchased Peppercorn's Grill in 1989 and opened Piccolo Arancio in 1994. This generation of Cialfi's has added modern creativity and personality to traditional strengths of their Italian roots. Sal and Dino were trained in the art of Italian food at their uncle's restaurant in Rome. When the opportunity to open a restaurant arose, they jumped at the opportunity and opened the first Piccolo Arancio in Rome. Piccolo Arancio was internationally acclaimed within their first year. Now operated by their cousins, Piccolo Arancio remains near the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Peppercorn's Grill and Piccolo Arancio received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 10 years

When I go too long without eating Chef Dino's food I crave it and need to pay Peppercorn's a visit. The homemade pasta's are the best in the state. The menu is extensive and their daily specials are must try items. They are very sensitive to any dietary restrictions and allergies. If you are looking for a great meal you should make a reservation today!

Great Italian menu with a group of people who really care about their customers. We love all the homemade ravioli, the pappardelle, and all the fresh fish and seafood. For dessert the tiramisu is like no other!

We come to Peppercorn's quite frequently and we convinced our friends to join us this past weekend. Out of six people, the three pasta meals were fantastic but the chicken and salmon were very disappointing. Both did not seem to meet the normal standard of Peppercorns.

We met for dinner before going to the Bushnell for a show. It was CT eats week. There were 5 of us at the table and we were only given three copies of the special menu which made it difficult for us to all read it. The service was a bit slow so we had to rush to get to the show on time. However the food was very delicious and fresh. We will go back

This really should be a 5 star review. We love Peppercorns and the food was great this time as always. The deduction was not the restaurant's fault. The place was packed when we arrived at 6pm and service was slow, but at 7:30 it suddenly cleared out. Seems most of the diners other than us had theatre tickets. Lesson learned--next time we will make our reservation before 5:30 or after 7:30.

Have dined several times here, over many years, and the food has always been top-notch. The menu is always so good, that choosing what to order is difficult. A great sign in any restaurant is when there are a number of things you want to order, and really cant decide, because they all sound so good. And my experience there is that I am never disappointed, or wished I had made a different choice. Any restaurant that has survived for 30 plus years, has the same chef ( and owner) is always a safe bet. This remains at the top of my list for real, authentic, inspired Italian food. As a lifelong Executive Chef myself, I can not recommend this highly enough to anyone who appreciates truly fine food prepared and presented with style, flair, love and phenomenal results. Peppercorns and Chef Dino are a rare treasure in the vast wasteland of chain, formula, and 'fake fine-dining' restaurants that have overrun the world these days. Go to Peppercorns, order anything on the menu, lunch or dinner, you wont be disappointed in any way.
BTW: no burgers and cheese fries here, no nachos, no wings. Thank GOD, an oasis in the desert of lousy pub food fare that seems to be everywhere these days.

Very busy night but Peppercorns delivered for our business meeting. Everything was delicious as usual, service impeccable, and a great selection of Italian and California wines on their wine list. My clients loved everything and can’t wait to come back.

Had dinner valentines weekend. Food was awesome as usual, even though very crowded that night. Servers did a great job. Valentine menu selections were on top of the regular menu. We had several different entrees and all were very good .

Absolutely horrible Valentine’s Day experience. Would never ever recommend coming here on a holiday. Food took around 2 hours, for a reservation that was at 8:30 PM when the restaurant was half empty. One of the meals was entirely a pre fixed choice while the other was a pasta dish, no substitutes or changes were made that could have complicated the dish. Patrons nearby who ordered the literal exact same option or similar options were served first, despite being seated after. Waiter was kind and really did try his best to be attentive, but the kitchen was so slow it was actually unbelievable. My girlfriend and I didn’t even feel up to eating by the time the food was delivered, due to how late/long it had been. Food was okay, but definitely not worth the wait on a holiday/special occasion. Also, fairly sure they shut the heat off while we were still there, which shows how backed up they were.

Six of us had gone for Valentine’s Day, the food was amazing with the amount of people there they did a great job spacing out the timing of the food. I’d definitely go back again!
