Stopped here for lunch before exploring The Highline. Great lunch special, salad and 1/2 serving of pasta was plenty of food and at a great price. Pasta was delicious, cooked al dente, perfect! Serivce was very friendly and welcoming, not rushed. Highly reccomend!

Given all the reviews, I went here with high expectations. Ambiance was nice. Service was good but uneven - a few long pauses between interactions, but the interactions themselves were very pleasant. The food was not bad but not special. Their al dente seemed a bit too firm and chewy for my taste. Their pomodoro sauce was forgettable. The balsamic chicken is served swimming in a lake of thick, sweet, bland balsamic glaze. Wines were okay.

We're in NYC for a break and came across this restaurant this evening - it looked very busy and interesting menu so I booked a table fr 2 can came back an hour later. There was a great vibe, service was excellent and food delicious! Bumped into a regular who live in California but every time she comes backs heads there as her first stop. We'll be back tomorrow evening and can highly recommend Pepe Giallo!!!

Went for dinner with a party of 10 made up of 3 separate family groups. We asked that the waitress write up 3 separate checks. This presented a big problem because they were very worried that they would lose their mandatory 20% tip for large groups. They wouldn’t do it. Appetizer was served with our meal rather than before it. Trout entree was bland. Eventually, we were allowed to split the check among 3 credit cards, but they must have told pointed out the 20% required tip 4 times. It seemed like that was their biggest concern. Very annoying. We will not go back.

The restaurant has a different feel, more modern , than the old location. Maybe not as cozy. But the food is still the same. Very consistently good and decent prices.
