Peperino Pizza: An Italian in Izmir
Peperino Pizza is located in Narlidere Izmir where you actually do not expect to see such a pizzeria. It is not in Alsancak or one of the crowded shopping malls however it is jam-packed both times we tried the place.
The owner of the shop is an Italian chef named Luciano married and moved to Izmir and therefore find the need to open an Italian Pizzeria which would be the best idea as it is overly popular in Turkey. After visiting Italian cities like Rome a lot of people starts to criticize the quality of the pizza in Domino’s etc. So for these so called gourmets it is necessary to have an Italian touch on their pizza.
Although it is pretty crowded Eatinizmir did not find anything remarkable not the Pizza nor the service. They supposedly have a wine cellar from which I have expressed my interest to choose a wine, they told me to wait and after 15 minutes I gave up and returned to my table and ordered a glass of whatever they have opened.
Overall the Peperino Pizza is a over-hyped pizzeria with a mediocre service and pizza although the prices are acceptable.
