A few weeks ago i came to Ko Samui for my holidays, i looked for a Italian restaurant as it was a few days i eat Thai food and I found Pepenero. I instantly loved it, the food was as good as the food in...Italy, if not even better. The staff were very kind, available and fast. The place is very nice and it even has a garden area outside. The wine options were fantastic, i drank saw some wines i had never even heard of i. Italy! Truly an unforgettable experience, definitely recommend!More

Please pay this place a visit if you're in for some exquisite dining. We've been staying around the corner and we're looking for something nice to eat and not too far away. When we read the raving reviews about this place we went there with...high expectations, and boy did they live up to it! Great taste, perfect presentation and extremely kind staff and run by real Italians who're passionate about their work, food and gastronomy. We Booth had a carpaccio as a starter with some special (parmezan?) young cheese which melted on the tongue. The owner even came back to show how they scraped this of the wheel of cheese. Main course we had a pasta with Octopus and Beef Cheek which tasted perfect. The portions were royal in size and the wine smooth. Yes, this is another raving review about this place, but trust us, it's more than deserved and worth it. We will definitely come back when we visit Samui in the future. Thanks again for the warm welcome, perfect food and personal touch!More

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

From the moment we arrived at Pepenero, Paolo, the perfect host, took care of our every need. Deliciously fresh Italian cuisine and lovely wine in a homely setting at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

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.
