I have noticed a lot of negative posts about the new Pepe's, so I was a little wary when a group of us went last Saturday night. Since our experience was so positive, I wanted to begin a new post for those who have enjoyed their dining experience.
The line was out the door of the vestibule, and it was a very cold night, but it moved fairly rapidly. We were 6 and we waited for one of the large booths. We were extremely pleased that the designers had decided against packing the place cheek by jowl with tables. The restaurant was airy and spacious. My friend, who had visited three times before, said that she felt that the best strategy was to order small pizzas instead of the large or regular sized ones. This was a great idea since the small wedges were extremely manageable. With three teenage boys in our company, six small pies were the right amount to order. The pies were all delicious -- we had 2 cheese, 1 pepperoni, 1 chicken, 1 sausage and one shrimp with bacon. Our one disappointment was that they were out of clams, but the shrimp pizza was a nice, briny and credible alternative. All the pies had great char and were delivered fresh and hot. Having eaten most of the best pizzas in the county, I can say that Pepe's is a great addition to the area and my opinion is that there is none better locally. Pepe's stands heads and shoulders above every other pizzerias in Westchester.
