Had lunch for the first time. Very fresh food, more than adequate serving. The service was very good. The restaurant looks great, has a edgy appeal. I can envision this restaurant at Brisbbane Southbank. Very trendy.

The restaurant consist of three distinct areas - bar/ casual bistro, the restaurant proper and take away which is accessed through a separate entrance. With the choice of outdoor or indoor, I selected the latter. In reading the menu, PePPi PePPi leans more the finer side Italian dining rather than the "dine & dash" 2 minute pasta houses. I selected... More

Recently had lunch at PePPi PePPi, what an experience. We have been for dinner a few times in the last couple of months and they never disappoint. This visit however I decided to let go of choice and ask Matt from PePPi² to bring a selection of the menu as he saw fit. He matched beverage and meal so expertly... More

Friendly staff and very welcoming. To start we received a complementary tasting dish. The entrees and mains that followed were so full of flavour and we even devoured some types of veggies that we normally wouldn't eat! Such a great experience, each flavour completed the next, really felt like we were in Italy.

My partner and I have been spoilt with wholesome home made Italian food growing up and have found it near on impossible to find a comparison to Noona's cooking in Townsville. I'm happy to say we were pleasantly surprised with the pasta and I loved the duck. Safe to say we have found our new "go to place". Our wait... More

We had pork belly,spanner crab pasta and gnocchi with pesto. Not much crab in the pasta and way to much pesto on the gnocchi. And the price is a little over the top. So if you wish for a reasonable night don't go here. Over priced. A pity as we need a good Italian restaurant in Townsville. Maybe they should... More

Visited during a business trip upon recommendation from family (who are local's) and was disappointed. I found the meals to be underwhelming for the price, I ordered the pork belly and it was tasteless. The meals are very small and overpriced, the presentation is fancy but the taste and quantity let them down (by small I mean that trend of... More

In Townsville on business and had heard good things about the restaurant, was a good decision and very happy with my choice to go there. Arancini balls to start and the Focoso Calabrese pizza as my main and both were of a high standard and very tasty. Good selection of wines both Italian and local. Finished the evening off with...
