Full Eat & Drink ArtPrize 2010 coverage.

On a rainy day, Peppino's Grille, Pizzeria and Sports Lounge is a great place to relax and enjoy some Italian food while watching the game on multiple large-screen TVs. On a sunny day Peppino's offers the same experience out on its deck--without the TVs, of course.

The restaurant offers traditional Italian favorites like lasagna and ravioli, the option to match your favorite pasta with a sauce of your choice, and Italian-style chicken and seafood dinners. Those looking for a quick, tasty bite to enjoy before heading out to see more of ArtPrize might want to try the wings, onion rings or nachos. Burgers, sub sandwiches, wraps, Mexican entrees and more are also on the menu, but what Peppino's has built its reputation on is its pizza. The business saw major growth in its early years serving the college students of Grand Valley State University, so it's no surprise that Peppino's knows a little about making a pie. Specialty pizzas include Bruschetta, Hawaiian and Pollo Alfredo.
