PEPeNERO is a chain of Italian restaurants in Bali and Jakarta. They are almost copies of the Trattoria restaurants, so you can read my review about it also.
I visited the PEPeNERO in Menara Karya, during lunchtime, and it was packed with both locals and expats. If you come with a group of people, I think you should always book in advance.

The menu is large, written in Italian and English. Prices for a starter is around Rp50,000++, for main dish around Rp80,000++, and for a pizza around Rp50,000++. 

I went for one of their 40 pizzas, all with thin crust. It tasted great for the price, and so far I haven't found better value pizza in Jakarta (ex-aequo with Trattoria). The service is very fast, professional and friendly.
Overall: Recommended if you are looking for good-value European food in Jakarta. PEPeNERO is not a fine-dining restaurant, but it is adequate for dates, business lunches, celebration, etc.. There is a non smoking area as well.

  1. love love love this restaurant :) simply fabulous :) great food yet also great ambiance!! :P

  2. so i was going to de hooi but i think that place was not that good so i changed the plan, i visited the restaurant next to it, PEPeNero. this restaurant has a very very good food and pasta (surely). the drinks are average price and nice place. totally recommended

  3. One day, TO said to me "Why do they provide free appetizers ? It costs them money and it makes people feel less hungry for their meal...". I replied "I come to Pepenero because of these appetizers". Except from this, I love the food, the atmosphear and the service. Strongly recommended !


  4. Good food, good ambience and still 'normal' price.. What else can u expect more ? Been there several times.. And always craving to return

  5. the place is really comfort,food taste great,nice chef..and always remind me for someone i used to have dinner together there...

  6. I have nothing but good to say about this place it's always been a favorite of mine :)

  7. Amazing place. Best Italian restaurant in Jakarta, better than the ones in 5* hotels, and so cheap.

  8. The best you can get for such a fair price and trust me the food itself is nice. And yeah, I love those free appetizers!!

  9. Poorest restaurant I ever tried. Food is accepatble but quality of sevices by waiteress is so rude n even provocative. Don't go unless you are really in rush to finish lunch for next urgent meeting in energy or Niaga bank.
