サムイ在住の友人から2年前に勧められて以来、サムイ島に来ると必ず行くレストランです。本場イタリアンがサムイで楽しめます。おすすめは、ブルッタチーズのブルスケッタ(スターター)、カラマリラグー(イカミンチのパスタ)、シーフードパスタです。ワインも美味しいので、おすすめを聞いてみてください。スタートはよく冷えたプロセッコ1杯から!と私は決めています。とてもアットホームなレストランですし、味も確かです。イタリア人オーナーのパウロさんもとても気さくですよ!

From the first time, I kept coming back to this place and I brought my friends who visited Samui from around the world and they all said they enjoyed the...More

The service and food here is awesome. A little of northern and southern Italian food. If there's some specific Italian dish you want made, Paulo will even customize it for you if the ingredients are available. We really enjoyed the burrata bruschetta and tartufo pasta....More

One of the best Italian foods I’ve ever eaten! The service is great and the owner is super friendly. The steak with mushroom sauce was out of this world.

Lovely place with great food and service. Was never disappointed in several visits. Great cold meat & cheese platters as starters followed by awesome pasta dishes. Reservations recommended as they seem to be fully booked most of the time.

Great menu with a special blackboard which is passionately explained by the owner. Always difficult to choose the food given the large number of outstanding dishes on the menu. Service is efficient and very pleasant

Closed May 26-June 19, 2018. Homemade Italian food dedicated to slow-food lovers. An invitation to sit and enjoy the music, the familiar atmosphere and every bite...without rush. Customers used to a fast food service, will not find in Pepenero an ideal place. We are easily accessible from the main areas of the island (Chaweng, Bophut, Maenam). We prepare the most traditional pasta recipes, accompanied by regional recipes and meat or fishes courses. Appetizers with the best selection of Italian cold cuts and cheese, Caprese with excellent Italian mozzarella, bruschettas and salads. Prestigious wine list and homemade desserts. The common element of all that we propose is the respect for the original recipes In Pepenero you will find the most famous Italian and international cocktails (Spritz, Negroni, Sbagliato, Mojito, Gin Tonic) always using the best brands and the original recipes. We strongly recommended to always book the table. At the moment, we don't accept credit cards.
