The best Orange County Italian Food since 1984. Peppino's Orange County Italian Restaurants have since expanded to serve the finest Italian Food in four Orange County locations.

Peppino's Italian Family Restaurant in Lake Forest is where it all begin in 1984. Peppino's Italian Family Restaurants are now located in Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Foothill Ranch, and our special Pizzeria in Aliso Viejo.

Our first restaurant in Lake Forest opened in 1984. Due to our customers' loyalty and love of good food, our restaurants expanded into several different locations throughout South Orange County and I think we are doing the right thing. With the help of my family and friends, I am able to grow. And of course my wonderful customers who are more friends than numbers. And above all my mom and dad. I love you Carlo and Antonetta, thank you for believing in me.

I hope my sons Carlo and Joey and my daughter Antonetta will carry on in the family business. So long as they love me, as I have loved their grandparents, our family's future will be the future for yours.

As always, thank you for your continued patronage,

Joseph Moscatiello
