Peppolino Restaurant

Wanting some Italian food, we found this smallish restaurant in Tribeca and decided to give it a go. 

We were seated immediately without a reservation but it was still early and we were jetlagged from the flight.  

I must say that the ambiance here is nice, but I was here for the food.  I could care less about ambiance so long as the food is good and the service is efficient.  

They gave us some bread and what tasted like tomato and garlic confit.  A pleasant start to the meal.



I ordered braised rabbit with tomato and garlic.  A solid dish but nothing to brag about and not a dish that I must come back and order.


Following was 
spaghetti with garlic and shrimp.  Another solid dish, again nothing to write home about.


Lastly we have a fettuccine with cannelloni beans, shrimp and cherry tomato.  Guess what?  Nothing excited nor flavorful, but a solid dish.  There is a trend with the dishes here and I don't think it gets any better.  Safe, solid dishes cooked perfectly but lacks that punch in the mouth flavor.  

Sorry Peppolino, I won't be coming back anytime soon.
