Village Voice's Description
The word Tuscan is been thrown around a lot;next to Atkins, it's probably the most abused culinary term. But Pepolino has fair claim to actually being a Tuscan restaurant, since the proprietors cut their eyeteeth at Florence's renowned Cibreo, and certain key dishes reflect it. Instead of butter or olive oil you get a spreadable tomato flan flavored with basil, and nothing in town quite matches the perfection of the cheese and spinach ravioli, glossed with butter and walnuts; or tagliata, a sliced steak served with greenery; or inzimino, a dense calamari sludge not for the squeamish.
Tips from foursquare
Great veal pappardelle
Best cheese cake in the city
The food here is fantastic...you feel like you just stepped off the plane in Italy. Homemade pastas are fantastico and the mussels are supafly.
stop whatever you're doing, wherever you're going, and come in to Pepolino! Feels like the quickest flight to Italy.
Puréed cannellini bean soup and butternut squash soup both to die for; tagliatelle with Italian ham was almost too rich. The ricotta cheesecake was sold out before we could try it. Good for groups.
