Once you try the food here you’ll never have the doubts what place you should choose to enjoy your dinner, and cozy atmosphere and warm Italian welcoming as well! Chocolate cake is absolutely unforgettable!!!!

From the moment you set foot into this restaurant you become acutely aware of the unique experience you are about to enjoy. Paulo greeted us on arrival and expertly navigated us through the highlights of the menu with intricate detail. Within a short while we...were presented with an array of mouth watering italian starters and dishes. It took s back to our time in Italy. We were also lucky enough to enjoy the magical raspadura cheese. All I can say if you get this chance...do not pass it by ! A slice of Italy to savor ! An absolute must if you love italian cuisine.More

We were greeted and served by the restaurant manager himself who kindly explained the details of the menu and accommodated our special dietary requests. The food was quite tasty and well presented. The indoor seating space is relatively small though there is outdoor space available...the location is right on the main road though separated by a wall and some distance. I would recommend a reservation if you want to sit in the indoor air-con space.More

Came here because of the great reviews and the food was so good. The service was amazing - very warm, friendly, and knowledeable. We loved everything we ordered : Raspadura, brioche and pate, Rigatoni diavola, lamb shank, and Zuccoto. Ps. We loved their Raspadura cheese...so much we just had to order some to go!More

My wife and me went to dinner there last night. Since we live on Samui since 15 years we know a lot of Italian restaurants here. Pepenero is without doubt the best classy Italian restaurant on Samui. Food and wine was excellent. Naturally the prices...are a little bit more higher than in a normal Italian pizzeria. But this is not to compare. The quality of the food is to compare with some classy Italian restaurants in Bangkok in the Sukhumvit area like Rossini's for example. But compare to the prices at Rossini's the prices at Pepenero are only half of that with same quality. So absolutely 5 Stars here.More

I really think it should be no problem to make that. My wife had a special request even with some black pasta they don't usually have on the menu but they managed to cook it for her anyway. I'm sure Paolo can help you.
