We have been going several times to Peppino's during the past years, it is a cosy pleasant place with athmosphere ! Peppino always comes to welcome his customers. We often take the 'chateaubriand' grilled by Peppino which is always outstanding. He often recommends some fresh vegetables dish on the side, which is tasty and recommendable, but dont get shocked when... More

I've been at Don Peppino a couple of times already, I know the boss but just warning you this place is not about quality, he only thinks about his pockets and he is quite obnoxious. He's trying to be friendly in your face, but in fact he is just putting on an act. He is known in Knokke for doing... More

Small cosy restaurant.....with nice quality italian food and a great atmosphere. You can also have some excellent grilled food which is prepared before you in the restaurant. Prices are quite expensive and also for the wine ;)

Friendly small Italian restaurant. Superb Grilled langoustines for starter followed by Charcoal grilled Filet Steak. All cooled to perfection on the open grill. One of the best Cooke Blue steaks my wife had ever had! Delicious home made Tiramisu for dessert - couldn't ask for a better meal. All meals cooked by the Owner who is also an excellent host....

Like many other comments on Tripadvisor: far too expensive for a rather below average Italian. My advice: other Italian restaurants in Knokke are 50% cheaper for at least the same quality.

My family members and myself wanted to go to an Italian restaurant by the beach, and we had found this one particularly nice.. until we actually reached the door. The only interaction we got with the waiter was "We're closed", which he said while serving wine to guests who had just arrived... this was at 1:45pm on a Sunday, and... More

How is it possible to screw up a simple dish like Escalope Milanaise in an Italian restaurant? Here is the answer: You don't bake the escalope enough (so it still is rose inside) and you give Bologanise sauce (with porc meat) on the pasta. Then you serve some red wine with it which will give you a headache if you... More

I will be short about this place: The owner is laughing all the way to the bank every day. This is an Italian restaurant for non-Italians who don’t have a clue about Italian cuisine but who have very fond memories of their visit to Southern Italy fifteen years ago. This is a typical ‘Cucina Belga/Francese/Italiana’. It is extremely expensive for... More

Don Peppino has a real Italian ambiance. The staff, interior and music makes you feel like you’re in a small family run restaurant in Italy. I don’t know if that’s true but it sure feels very authentic. The food is very good, I had the “Calamari fritti” as a starter and the house specialty “Cannelloni” as main course. I can... More
