My wife and I arrived at the restaurant and were given a warm welcome and seated promptly.
It was a warm evening so we sat outside. As soon as we were seated someone filled our water glasses and said our waitress would be over to take our cocktail order. Our waitress Terezia, I may have spelled that wrong came over and we ordered a bottle of wine and a martini. They have an extensive wine list and we had no trouble finding a beautiful bottle of wine. We both ordered salads the caprino & pera and caprese autunnale. They were both wonderful. For our entrees we both had the aged Kinnealey tenderloin and they were cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic. We finished the meal off with the soufflé and a glass of single malt scotch. Our service from everyone at the Sale e Pepe was great and would highly recommended this restaurant for a special evening.

A special occasion kind of place, but worth every penny. Food was delicious & beautiful presentation & great service. Perfect at sunset as well, looking out over the beach. Small bar, but half price drinks at happy hour is a bonus.

Steak was great. Other food - meh. Not a ton of choices. Expensive and not great value -$50 for a solid filet on a large plate by itself? Broccolini side was $9 extra.

Service was very pleasant but overworked, so very, very slow. Had to stand and wait just to pay check at the end and still took forever. Super nice server just had too many tables to tend to.

Did give a VERY nice dessert for my daughters birthday. That was a nice touch.

Family of 5 without alcohol was $240. Not a great value at all for that. Sorry.

Pretty and nice location.

Greaters at desk were a bit snobby.

Was not impressed with the food at all. It was a fixed price menu with only two choices for each course. The portions were very small. It was more like a sampler menu or tapas, not a real meal. For the fixed price of $135 I expected something much better . Especially due to their reputation. The restaurant adds in the tip of 18% for our party of two. I understand for large groups but that’s like saying to your customer “we don’t trust you” We would not go back. For fine dining we’ll go to The Blue Heron instead

We went to Sale e Pepe for Valentines Day dinner. This was our first experience at this restaurant. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation, but we were told that no one is seated prior to the reservation time, even though our table was empty and ready. The menu was prix fixed, 4 courses for $135/person...not including drinks. The food was just Ok, but our service was outstanding. Gratuity was automatically added to the bill at 18%, but our waiter told us that this gratuity did not include his tip!!
This is a one time only restaurant. ...too many excellent restaurants in Marco Island that do not exploit the customers.

They appear to have changed their menu from my last visit. I greatly enjoyed my dinner. My two friends did not like their sea bass. Service, ambiance, wine...everything else fantastic. Maybe an off night for sea bass.

Everything from top to bottom is top notch. From the moment you walk in, you are treated as you would expect. We ate in the dinning area adjacent to the outside area. If the temp allows, I’d suggest outside (and that is casual) to watch the sunset. Make sure you specify casual or formal, where pants (no jeans) and shoes are to be worn. bon appetite!!

Sale e Pepe is one of our favorite restaurants in the Naples/Marco area. The food, elegant ambiance, ocean views, and service are impeccable. Our server, Federico, was so attentive, knowledgeable, and personable that he elevated our experience even further. A must for a truly outstanding, five star dining experience.

Just wasn’t our normal trip to this restaurant. Our waiter was great but wrong dish for one of four of us came out after the other three were done eating. Poorly explained. Dinner was comped after we asked. Very pricey for what we had to eat. Thanks.
