Lunch at Pepe Giallo

Nestled just blocks from the Highline on 10th Avenue sits Pepe Giallo...a small, rustic place with a kitschy garden in the back and a small open kitchen in the front.  The menu offers an array of Italian staples like Penne a la Vodka, Spaghetti with Meatballs and Vegetable Linguine.

I ordered from the lunch specials which came with choice of soup or salad and sandwich.  The salad was simple greens dressed with a little olive oil and pepper followed by a crisp Mozzarella and Prosciutto Panini.

For the low price of $9 this was a fantastic lunch deal.  The sandwich was quite perfect...loaded with lots of fresh sliced prosciutto, creamy mozzarella cheese, chopped arugula and tomato.  It was homey and rustic just like the restaurant itself.
