We heard great things about this place. But when we went in it was pretty much empty. The service was slow for no one being in there. My steak was good but nothing fancy. I ordered stuffed squash blossoms and they were so greasy we...More

My girlfriend and I dined here before seeing a show at the Bushnell Theater nearby. While we were far from the only ones at the restaurant for the same reason, we were fortunate to get there ~15 minutes earlier than the rush, and it made...More

This operation has been in Hartford for a long time. What should have been a really nice pre-theatre dinner was a bomb. To begin with, the menu is much much larger than the skill level of the culinary team. The two veal chop dinners were...More

Peppercorn’s Grill and Piccolo Arancio are owned and operated by the Cialfi siblings, Sal, Dino, Tina, and Rosa. Brothers Sal and Dino purchased Peppercorn's Grill in 1989 and they, along with younger sisters Tina and Rosa opened Piccolo Arancio in 1994. This generation of Cialfi's has added modern creativity and personality to traditional strengths of their Italian upbringing. Sal and Dino were trained in the art of Italian food at their uncle's restaurant in Rome. When their uncle felt that the two brothers education was complete, he helped them open their own restaurant in Rome, Piccolo Arancio and became internationally acclaimed within their first year. Now operated by their cousins, Piccolo Arancio remains near the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Both restaurants produce award-winning cuisine and continue to receive high honors and awards. This may Marked the 10th consecutive year the both Peppercorn's Grill and Piccolo Arancio received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence
