Peppercorns Grill

Peppercorn’s Grill and Piccolo Arancio are owned and operated by the Cialfi siblings, Sal, Dino, Tina, and Rosa. Brothers Sal and Dino purchased Peppercorn's Grill in 1989 and they, along with younger sisters Tina and Rosa opened Piccolo Arancio in 1994. This generation of Cialfi's has added modern creativity and personality to traditional strengths of their Italian upbringing.
Sal and Dino were trained in the art of Italian food at their uncle's restaurant in Rome. When their uncle felt that the two brothers education was complete, he helped them open their own restaurant in Rome, Piccolo Arancio and became internationally acclaimed within their first year. Now operated by their cousins, Piccolo Arancio remains near the Trevi Fountain in Rome.
Both restaurants produce award-winning cuisine and continue to receive high honors and awards. This may Marked the 10th consecutive year the both Peppercorn's Grill and Piccolo Arancio received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence

"We went to Peppercorns before a movie and the place was hopping. But that didn't make a difference. The host was as gracious as he could be, the food amazing, and the service top notch. We are always proud to bring guests here because we always have a great experience."

"We were here for dinner with friends and the start was not good. The restaurant seemed to be understaffed, it took a long time to even get water! We had to ask for the Taste of Hartford menu, it was not offered. We also had to ask a manager where our food was, and he brought it out.
Service seems to be a problem here, so be prepared for a long evening.

"We were thoroughly pleased with everything Peppercorns served. The pastas, the appetizers, desserts, and even the drinks were fantastic. Service was impeccable, professional, friendly, and not overbearing.
We all left satisfied and happy.

"The food was excellent, and service was very personable. There was a lull between the apps and entre, but they made it up with the desert! 3 out of 4 had the set menu from Taste of Hartford, nice range of offerings... 50% off selected wine offerings on Monday was a no nrainer"

"I have not been to Peppercorn's in a few years. The food is just as good, if not better, than I remember. Also, the inside has been redone and I really like the seating arrangements. I cannot stress enough how good the food was! It can be a little pricey but most restaurants are now."

"There was a snow storm this evening so the restaurant was very quiet but we had an incredible time. The chef prepared special things for us, came out to talk to us, and as usual the food was superb. What a lovely expreience with the snowy evening. Great food, great conversation, and quiet romantic surroundings. Thank you Peppercorns for such a special evening."

"Still the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to outside of Europe. The pastas, breads, and desserts are all homemade and you cen tell the Cialfi family takes great pride in their work. Food, service, and ambiance are all off the charts. We can't wait to go back and try some more of their specialities."

"We love Peppercorns and they treat us very well each time. The food is always amazing and the servers are a fine tuned group. they know how to please their customers from start to finish.
The pastas, seafood, and veal dishes are top notch. The desserts are all homemade and a fantastic way to end the meal with a piping hot and well made espresso. We'll be back.

"Peppercorns never ceases to amaze us.
Whether they are busy or not, they have a wonderful orchestration in the restaurant. Everyone is cheerful, friendly and professional all at the same time. The food is always top notch with New specials and cutting edge ideas. We love everything about Peppercorns!

"Never a bad meal. Great food with a caring staff. They treat you like family. We will continue to frequent Peppercorns. It is to go to restaurant when we are in the area. Try the incredible eggplant, artichokes, and veal meatballs, all exquisite. For entrees seafood and pastas are amazing."

"Our waiter had us wait 15 before placing a drink order or getting us bread. The restaurant was just about empty so it was odd. Our drink was wrong; the lobster risotto was undercooked and so hot it was difficult to eat for 10 minutes. We then had to wait 15 for our check, tired of waiting, my husband got up to find the waiter. It was our first time there ( we told them and open table, clearly they didn't care) we won't be coming back."

"We have become regulars here at Peppercorn's because the staff is always on top of things and the chef never ceases to amaze us with his expertise. This time we tried the dover sole cooked perfectly and boned table side with a flair of past times tableside service. We split the artichoke ravioli, the beet salad with winter greens, and a white chocolate pot du creme All was fantastic. The server also reccommended a reasonably priced nice Arneis wine and it complemented the dover sole perfectly. Thanks to all the staff."

"Peppercorns is one of the most consistent restaurants we know of. It has a large classic Italian menu with reliably great food and interesting daily specials. My wife obsesses on the signature Ravioli Al'Arancia whereas I like to check out the risotto of the day and the pasta specials. The place also has a friendly, neighborhood family restaurant vibe. The service is always good and, since Peppercorns has a parking lot as well as valet parking, parking is not an issue--unusual for a downtown Hartford restaurant."

"The restaurant is a nice walking distance from the Bushnell. The food and wine selection was nice. The craft beer selection was poor. Our server was very attentive ( I don't remember his name). I was with a party of 3. My dinner was not hot, but the other 2 had hot dinners. Otherwise, it was a nice experience."

"We were a party of 5 women having dinner at Peppercorns Grill for the first time before we went to see Cinderella at the Bushnell. Our waiter, Bill, was great. We all ordered something different and we were all pleased with our choices. The only downside was the noise level....hard to hear each other at table. Other than that, a great place for dinner and the prices were reasonable too."

"Our first visit to Peppercorns Grill will be the first of many! The food was fabulous, and undoubtedly fresh. It reminded us of the farm-to-table dinners we have enjoyed over the summer, that serve only the freshest food available in season. Our server was very friendly and helpful when trying to decide from the many dinner choices. We had tickets to a show at the Bushnell, and she was mindful to be sure we didn't get too distracted. We will definitely visit again when we can stay longer."

"I'd accidentally forgotten what a good restaurant Peppercorns is. And it is so close to downtown Hartford; the parking was easy. We walked there from the Guise and Dolls at the Wadsworth. Great food, excellent service, and they were happy to accommodate our rather large group - whose exact size changed a few times. Their wine by the glass prices are very affordable!
Going there again, soon."

"This was our first time here because the reviews from many were so good and everything was awesome. We tried many things from artichokes, lobster sauteed, Dover sole, salmon, homemade ravioli, even octopus, and everything was amazing. We are so glad we finally tried this gem. Can't wait to go back."
