Welcome To Peppino's Restaurants!

Peppino’s has been serving the best Italian food in Orange County since 1984. We started in Lake Forest and due to our customers’ loyalty and love of authentic Italian cuisine, we now have restaurants in Mission Viejo and Foothill Ranch.

Our decor is classic American Italian with checkered table cloths & memorabilia from thirty years of proudly serving Orange County.  We are described by many as the quintessential NY Italian in Orange County.  We seek only the freshest and most interesting ingredients for our specials, always keeping it seasonal and deeply rooted in traditional Italian recipes. We also offer a gluten free memu.  Come dine with us!

Peppino’s Restaurants also offer full scale catering services bringing a true Italian experience to events of all sizes.

One of my favorite places to eat. Excellent food and great service. Great place to go on a date, I even go there for lunch sometimes when I’m in the area. I highly recommend this place.

Kris W., Orange County, 11/2/2019

Excellent food and service. Our server, Kassy, was amazing. Mission Viejo Peppinos is my favorite of all the locations. Great view on the patio and a live band! The already nice ambiance is even more wonderful.

Annette B., Foothill Ranch, 8/2/2019

My local goto Italian eatery. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Excellent daily food specials and beverages. Servers are long standing employees with honest camaraderie for their customers. Easy access and parking.
