“Pepolino is a variety of thyme that grows wild in Tuscany,' say Patrizio Siddu and Enzo Pezone, when asked why they named their Manhattan restaurant, Pepolino. 'We wanted the name of our restaurant to reflect our cooking style. We use a lot of herbs in our dishes, and pepolino is our favorite one.'
In August 1999, Patrizio Siddu and Enzo Pezone opened the doors of Pepolino, and thrilled guests with elegant Tuscan cuisine. Signature dishes run the gamut from 'tagliata di manzo', cannellini and rosemary to a sumptuous pear-ricotta tart.
