Andre our server was incredible. His attentiveness was perfect and he had a great sense of humor! He also surprised us with an anniversary dessert!!! Very thoughtful.
The food was the best in the island. The pasta was the perfect al dente, and the Calabria sauce with fritto misto was to die for.
It was a wonderful experience that we hope to repeat again very soon.

Well done Sale e Pepe!!

The food, the setting & ambience is lovely. The service was not good at all. We sat outside and they have added so many more tables out there it felt very crowded & took away the quaintness of their location. With that being said, the service was poor because they were so crowded and busy outside. Not the experiences I have had in the past. Disappointed!

The ambiance, spacing, and service was quite good. I did not like my meal which was chicken picatta- two small pieces of roasted chicken with the picatta sauce on the side and carrots. The chicken itself was flavorless. The pasta dishes were fantastic. The portions are small and the restaurant is quite expensive.

Have been to Sale e Pepe many times over the years. We were taking friends their for their first experience. As always, the food was excellent but the service was awful. The waiter was not very attentive to our table at all. It is an expensive restaurant and they automatically add 20% gratuity so no option to reward service based on the experience or lack there of.

Great dining experience. The bartender was on her game and The New Fashioned drink was excellent. We had seating outside on a beautiful evening. Our waiter was also on his game and the food was very tasty. My wife had the Pappardelle and I had the Branzino.

Hostess was unfriendly and unwelcoming. We arrived 7 minutes early and she offered us to wait at bar, which were were fine to do. Female bartender was just as unfriendly. We ordered drinks, but after the restaurant opened, the hostess never came back to seat us. We had to ask to be seated about 20 minutes after many other folks arrived and were seated. Waiter was good and friendly. Food was good. Probably would not go back.

We love it at Sale e Pepe. We were there for the 3rd time last Friday night. The service was excellent. They bend over backwards to make sure your experience is perfect. The food is always delicious. We love sitting outside on the patio overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful! They also have a very nice dining area inside with a full bar. You have to go. It's lovely!

Had a reservation for my birthday, gulf view. 30 minutes into the meal, cold front came through, staff moved us under cover due to the wind. Overall experience is explained by the 5 star ratings. Would definitely go back.

This was my 2nd visit within 2 months to this outstanding restaurant. My sister and I shared the red snapper special and it was delicious. My husband appreciated that the chef accommodated a small change to his pasta and seafood special. Our waiter, Neb, was very friendly and attentive. The view is awesome. A perfect place for special dinners.

This has to be the worst-run restaurant I have ever encountered. The service is just wacky, with requests ignored or fulfilled in a bizarre manner. The pasta dish I ordered was nearly inedible and had almost no sauce. This restaurant has inflated wine prices and then automatically adds a 20% gratuity to your bill. Never again!!

For the price the food could have been a bit more savory and flavorful. The seasoning was not up to par for a restaurant of this calibre.

Everything was very good but be advised they automatically add a 20 percent gratuity even when dining for two guests. The service was deserving of the gratuity but I’m surprised of their policy of automatically adding the tip
