    We had excellent service as usual. The various menu options were very well explained and it was difficult to make a choice between the offerings. Any would have been outstanding. We had inside seating, but still got a good sunset view over the Gulf. The outside terrasse was far busier but maybe a better choice if you perfer the "beach setting".

It has been our go to for the past 5 years and will be as long as we are able to visit. The bolognese is phenomenal. And the wine list second to none. All in all a 10/10.

    We sat on the patio and had an exceptional dining experience, even with our two kids during spring break. It can be hard to find a $$$$ restaurant with great food, great service, great atmosphere, that is also excellent with kids - this was it. Erick was an awesome server and truly appreciated. Ivan (manager) checked in and was great as well. Recommendations for food and drinks were on point.

    The food is amazing the service impeccable. The one thing that I wish I had known before I made my reservation - there is no shade for the outdoor seating. We got there at 5:00 - the first guests to arrive that evening. Had a lovely table by the balcony. It would have been very unpleasant in the hot humid sun to continue to sit at that table. There are no umbrellas to provide shade in the outdoor area. We were able to move to a slightly more shaded table so all ended well. But we heard the other patrons complaining about the lack of shade during the course of the evening. Lesson learned - I will definitely return, it was a wonderful experience. I’ll just be more specific when making the reservation with regard to seating.

    We loved out dinner and the service was exceptional. We should have reserved outside seating, it was a beautiful evening. The bar was very loud until after sunset, then it was much more enjoyable. The din was just too loud at first. Great food, great service!

    Didn’t love sitting a too big table for 5 people. Prefer sitting on the terrace without the ceiling, the led lights are too shocking. Salad was good, my sea bass was dry, bolognese lacked depth and flavor, not too many dessert options.

The food was amazing from start to finish! They really do such a great job! We also enjoy the views from the terrace. Although, last year we sat inside, and that was lovely as well. You really can’t go wrong! Thanks Sale e Pepe staff! Well Done!

    The ambiance was nice. The service was great but food was not great at all. My Bronzino tasted like chicken. They said their pasta is made in house and my kids and husband had different ones and no one loved it. Maybe at some point they had great tasting food but none of us thought it tasted great at all. For those prices it should have been outstanding…which is what we expected. But it tasted worst then a regular Italian restaurant.

    I made this reservation months ago in anticipation of a busy weekend. We were seated promptly by kind hosts. Our server was courteous and informative. He had to comeback several times to our table with news of out of stock items. Finally he sent his manager, who was also gracious. We were looking forward to ordering an item that stated on the menu it takes 30 minutes to prepare. The server stated at time of ordering it would take 50-60 minutes. We ordered our entrees about an hour after seating so we’re not interested in waiting another hour to eat our main dish after enjoying the other items. We make a tradition of visiting this restaurant multiple times a year when are in Marco. There was so many misses on this visit, I’m not sure what is happening behind the scenes- but it is noticed and significant enough. I’m not sure we will continue to keep in the rotation or continue to recommend.

    Our server and his assistant were amazing!!! They alone kept us from lowering our rating to 3 stars! Filet was tough and not cooked to a medium temp. The grouper special was amazing as was the Bolognese. Appetizers were amazing. Main issue with this restaurant is the service charge which is actually the 20% added onto the bill as a tip. We always tip very good as my wife and I met as servers 30 years ago. The “tip” is added on before the flipping tax!!!! Why the hell should I pay tax on a flipping tip. If you must charge a service charge (a tip according to the host) do it after the tax has been added. Maybe not an issue to most but this irks us!

    My dinner was not good and I actually didn’t eat it and our waiter or any other server who attended our table never asked if it was ok. A big faux pas on a restaurant of this caliber. We go often her, but not this year. Good is off, but view snd location is the best. Not sure what has changed, but not hurting back this season
