Da Peppone is an authentic Italian restaurant that is very popular with the community located in Stuttgart-Möhringen, so, reservations are recommended. You have the choice of being seated outside on the patio or inside in their comfortable restaurant.

The restaurant offers a spacious terrace with shady seats. There is plenty of parking available in front of Da Peppone, and dogs are always welcome. Smoking is permitted outside and ashtrays are emptied promptly. The staff is very friendly and extremely helpful when it comes to food and wine selections. Tables are set to be simple, but still elegant.

After a heartfelt welcome, we inquired about their special. As an appetizer we had bruschetta, crunchy fresh bread with a soft center topped with fresh and deliciously dressed tomatoes. One of the appetizer options was a sampler platter with zucchini pickled with mint, mushrooms, honeydew melon with airdried ham, eggplant, bell peppers, buffalo mozzarella, green olives and cherry tomatoes. With that came slices of fresh bread and a superb olive oil served on a plate with salt and pepper. It was all presented with great care.

For our main courses, we decided on a pizza with salami and ham and pasta with mussels. The pizza came fresh out of the wood-burning stove and was so big that we weren’t able to finish it. Toppings were all typical-Italian and just delicious. The pizza was loaded with plenty of goodness, and the crust was thin and crunchy. The pasta with mussels impressed with ample, well-prepared mussels, perfectly cooked pasta and a great tasting sauce.

Dessert consisted of mousse au chocolate, creamy and beautifully light and fluffy, and a serving of tiramisu with white chocolate bits. Both dishes were lovingly arranged and garnished with powdered sugar and strawberries.

All around it is a great restaurant and well worth visiting. Portion size was generous and the food was delicious. We also checked with other guests and all were in agreement, this is a great place! There were no long waiting times on food and the prices were completely reasonable. Tables are cleared off and re-set promptly when patrons leave. They also bring out new cutlery with every course, and the staff stops by frequently to check on their guests and wishes. Even Italians visit the restaurant frequently which speaks for the quality of the Italian food here. If you would like to celebrate your birthday at Da Peppone and order a cake, then that cake will be delivered to your table decorated with sparklers, and the entire staff walks out with the cake to sing happy birthday. We were able to witness that on a neighboring table.
