Amazing food, the pizza dough alone is enough to keep us coming back for more.
Great friendly service, small intimate environment- we’ll definitely be back

My partner and I have dined here before but brought my parents this time for their 41st anniversary! They loved it so much! My father is born and raised Italian and says he can never find an authentic Italian restaurant he loves - even though the Burleigh restaurant offers an modern menu he said he’s never tasted such a good seafood dish :)) Roberta was our beautiful waitress (both dining experiences) and she remembered my partner and I! Such great customer service - made us feel so welcomed and warmed! We will be back to conquer the entire menu :))

We had an impromptu dinner at Pepe which was wonderful. The pizza and risotto were beautifully cooked and flavoursome. The place has a nice vibe to it with interesting decor and music. Friendly staff and efficient service. Highly recommend.

Pizza had no topping and was burnt,
The pasta was hard and didn’t ask for al dente , the beef cheek was amazing !
The menu is limited and quite pricey.

I used to come here a lot and was always satisfied, we mainly would get take away. This time I was disappointed. Not only do they serve plain white toasted bread with the burrata but you only get one piece of bread cut into quarters and toasted with no seasoning. That is bare minimum and not acceptable given the price of the food. I could go to The Tropics across the road and have beautiful baked sourdough and adequate seasonings for the same price. The pasta for both meals wasn’t adequately cooked, and the prosciutto bites were over cooked, the bean purée had no taste at all. I will say the staff are very friendly and accommodating however they probably needed a few extra hands on on a Saturday night as our drinks were forgotten about a couple of times. We also waited one hour for our mains. Safe to say I might leave it for a while before giving them another try, there are many other ‘authentic’ style Italian restaurants around Burleigh. I think it’s better to go there on a weeknight.

My husband & I dined here on a busy Friday night and we were really impressed by the friendly and efficient service. We ordered a starter with a burrata cheese from Byron Bay and it was delicious!! We followed this with a pizza & salad both of which were also really tasty. Our waiter was knowledgable with the menu which helped make food choices easy. Overall we found the food to be very authentic and the flavours delicious. This was obviously due to the quality ingredients used. We will definately return for another relaxing and enjoyable night.

We really enjoyed our food at Pepe's. Very goos sized servings and the pizzas were excellent. Some of the main meals were pretty pricey especially the pasta but we couldn't complain about the quality.
