Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great service, good food, excellent wines, awesome cocktails. As a negroni lover, I've been looking around Tartu for the place with a perfect negroni - and Pepe's prepares them as good as they come in Italy. What more could you ask for?

We visited the location on a Thursday evening. The place looks nice and cozy, we had the baked Brie for starters, mushroom gnocchi and carbonara later. The Italian wine was very tasty. About the main dishes: the taste is very good but we recommend a...dark and flat plate to enhance the visual effect. The best thing: housemade limoncello made by A.! We’ll be back (hopefully).More

Couldn't have asked for more from the team at Pepe's. We held our wedding here with them and everything went so smoothly. They were very responsive and very accommodating from the first-ever message exchange with them. The food was delicious! The drinks were perfect! The...staff went above and beyond for us and we are very grateful for helping us craft a major part of our special day. Highly recommend. The setup was beautiful and the staff was very kind to all of us. They wore masks and provided hand sanitizer.More

Great food and atmosphere. Good coffee and wine. Very nice semifreddo! My new favourite in town. We had the chicken mango salsa and meatball pasta. Most delicious.

I've been to Pepe's five times now and two last visits have been quite dissapointing. Portions are smaller, prices are higher, poor taste. its very sad because about a year ago everything was really good.

I have great memories of a beautiful and warm summer when I spent a wonderful time with my friends in this restaurant. This time I went to a restaurant to taste the "Tasty Tartu" menu. The appetizer was very boring for me, a slimy ravioli...in the soup. The ravioli was very soft and liquid on the inside, the food lacked texture and consistency. The main course was stuffed squid. Squid is not one of my favorites anyway, but I still wanted to give it a chance. Really, it wasn't gummy, but everything else with this dish was like porridge. The dessert was a pleasant surprise alongside all the other retreats, but still not an exceptionally special taste experience. The service was very pleasant and caring, professional. We were served by a nice young man who obviously enjoyed his work and offered us very nice moments. I would definitely recommend this wonderful restaurant to everyone. Unfortunately, I and my companion were not impressed by the "Tasty Tartu" menu.More

Nice restaurant, the waiter and waitress were both helpful (no menues in English!) Food was good but not many veggie option and the salad itself was not enough for lunch. Fish was served with nothing else. Bread or fries could be added to the main...courses we ordered, we would have been hungry if we didn't ask for fries by the side. Both desserts were wonderful :DMore

Aside from their tasty ‘Italy meets America’ cuisine, Pepe’s has become something of a brunch mecca. Weekends are for indulging so dig into a stack of fluffy pancakes with a range of delicious toppings to choose from (even popcorn!). They’re just as irresistible as they...look. Pure happiness on a plate!More

There is some simple magic happening in the kitchen. Amongst two of us we had 3 different dishes. Each was a delight and the combination of tastes was more than average enjoyable in each of them. For example there was a bit sweet in the...salad that made the tomatoes taste like fresh from the greenhouse.More
