First class in all respects. Excellent food, great wine (thanks the GM's recommendation) and attentive service from our waiter. All this while a wedding was in process outside. This is a well managed property. Can't wait to go back!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar prior to dinner, and the wine sommelier helped us pick out a wonderful Italian Amarone to have with dinner. My husband and I shared the Branzino and the Pappardelle bolognese. Both were absolutely delicious. For dessert we shared one scoop each of the chocolate and peanut butter gelatos! The gorgeous sunset was icing on the cake!

Pleasantly surprised! Great food! Great space! The one thing that disappointed me was the 20% gratuity being included in the bill. My opinion is it lacks tact and feels like my hand is being forced. I usually leave 20 - 30% anyways, if the service is good, which it was, but I want to make that decision. It feels like the restaurant doesn’t have the confidence in itself or it’s clientele. It’s tacky. So after a wonderful dining experience, that left a bad taste in my mouth.

Its expensive but its well worth it. From the valet to the wait staff, everyone is accommodating and attentive. The food is superb as is an extensive wine list. I prefer outdoor seating with a view of the bay. It doesn't get better than this.

I had an issue with how the food was delivered to the table,but Ivan the manager stepped up and corrected the situation. I would highly recommend this restaurant not just for the great food, but also for the management. They know how to take care of a customer!!! Bravo!!!!!

Beautiful restaurant with a European vibe. We ate outside on the veranda with spectacular views of the sunset. The service was amazing and the food was delicious. A must for at least one dinner if you are in town.

Another memorable meal at Sale e Pepe. This is our third time dining here after attending a wedding reception 5 or 6 years ago. Food is great, service and overall experience is exceptional. On top of that, a great view of the beach. We'll be back on our next Marco Island trip.

Each time we go to Marco we eat here and are amazed at how consistent it is. The food is expertly prepared. The wine list is the best on the island by far. If you want ambience for ANY occasion, this place has the secret to make it work. You just need to be sure to have a pasta dish whether a full order or half. It is a treat no matter how prepared.

the woman taking the reservation was not too friendly. reminded me that they were going to be short staffed and busy that night - really surprised. But, once there the staff was friendly and joyful and attentive. food was excellent - great for a big occassion. We were celebrating a college graduation.

Food was great, waiter was good but restaurant had a large member crowd inside that made service bit slow but we were in no rush. But VERY disappointed that they did not once mention our 30th anniversary, even though on reservation and I confirmed prior - not a mention the entire evening, not even at checkin. You missed the mark.
