Connected to Pepino’s is our sister restaurant, La Tana.

    Food and Service were outstanding! Found the price of our meal very reasonable and we didn't hold back on the ordering. Everyone left with a lunch for the next day which is always a bonus. Thanks to Daniel for his great service and suggestions.

    Great service! We ordered the bolognese with burrata and the pepperoni deep dish pizza. I would absolute go back to order both again minus the burrata. We also had the tiramisu which was phenomenal.

    It’s become a tradition to celebrate my birthday at Pepino’s because we always create the best memories. Friendly service, great atmosphere, and most importantly delicious food. You can’t go wrong with any of the pasta’s and adding when in doubt add a meatball!

    When I went to the website online and I tried to reserve a table the only available time was 5:00 PM 4 pepino's, so I took that time slot. When I arrived at pipinos I waited at the front door and then I was told to follow the sidewalk 2 doors down 2 latana instead, and they said don't worry they'll have the same menu there. I quickly understood that the owner owned both restaurants and pepine's which has the nicer ambiance was crowded and full so it appears that we got the overflow into the other La Tana wine bar. When we got seated, we were given a small menu with limited items, I inquired what meat dishes they had and they said they only had 1 which was a pork and lentil stuffed pasta, so I chose that and my partner chose the tuna. We also ordered the watermelon salad appetizer which was larger than our actual meals. The restaurant was quite noisy and we were sitting and a small table that barely had room for both our plates and because we're in a type of corner booth we kept stepping on each other's feet and our knees kept knocking into each other. We notice the people sitting beside us got a beautiful fresh baked bread and oil and they got some very large portioned meat dishes which puzzles me because I did not see that on the menu, and then I realized that they were offered the menu from the La Tana restaurant they ordered from the Pepino’s . We were not offered that menu at all. When we received our main course the portion size was extremely small, I literally had 10 tiny little stuffed pasta which tasted amazing but definitely left me quite hungry. My overall review of this place was it was loud, the food tasted amazing it was really good but they skimped on the portion sizes especially for the cost of the main meals.

    If you're looking for classic Italian food + loads of pasta, this is your new go-to. We always thought because it's part of the Savio Volpe group that the portions would be on the smaller side. We were wrong. Must order: the Pappardelle alla Bolgonese. It's the first time I've had this dish in Vancouver that it actually reminded me of Bologna!

    Had a great evening but (once again) left with the after effects of shouting to one another to be heard. So must always think twice before coming to Pepinos for dinner. Great value, food and service though. Thank you!

    I couldn't believe how delicious the iceberg lettuce salad was. I'm glad our server suggested it as we'd never have picked it, but it ended up being one of my favorites. The second favorite was the calamri. Wow. Of course the mains were delicious too. Staff were so nice and accommodating (we came with our 3 year old), would definitely come back.

    Please note which side you are booking your table for. La Tana or Pepinos. They share the same booking system, so I thought I booked for pepinos when actually I booked for the wine bar at la tana. They share the same kitchen however, so you can order items from pepinos menu and eat it in la tana.
