We celebrated a birthday there, the food was great, the Italian chef has a lot to offer obviously. The environment is great, casual but cosy and elegant. The staff is well trained, very polite and friendly. The restaurant is located in the lobby of Shangri-La hotel. Suits well for a good dinner and some great wine after watching the sunset... More

The menu is always updated with seasonal ingredients and the dishes are always mouth watering. Went there for friend's birthday and still enjoy the atmosphere and their food items.

We stayed at the hotel, and had dinner twice! First night with kids on the a la carte, second night kids have been at the Kids Club party and we enjoyed the 5 course menu and a tete-a-tete. Great presentation, great flavors and lovey service. We enjoyed both dinners and when back in KK will for sure stop by again... More

Just ate in Peppino and thought it was the best meal we have had since arriving. Yes, it is pricey but you get what you pay for.
