Sale e Pepe - Marco Beach Ocean Resort Ratings and Reviews
Young experienced chef leads the kitchen ...
Young experienced chef leads the kitchen creating classic as well as nouveau Italian food with a twist like a layered egg plant appetizer like lasagna. Portions are not nouveau-tiny either, but satisfaying in size. Many folks prefer to dine on the terrace overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, often enjoying a lovely sunset along with a fantastic dinner. The wine list is not too shabby either as it has long been awarded a top rating by the Wine Spectator for its broad selection.

Food is excellent. Service is NOT GOOD. Servers are not friendly, attentive, or accommodating. They always seem to disappear for long stretches of time after dessert. One always has to flag down another server to give us our bill. This happens here consistently. We eat here at least once a month. Sale e Pepe, please hire new people with personalities.

Our second trip to Marco and we've dined at Sale e Pepe each time. Food was exceptionally good this second time. Place is wonderful for a special meal with special person. Cocktails at bar before dinner is a must. Bartender and hostess/manager were very nice and friendly as they were last year. Excellent wine selection. Sunset dinner an added bonus to a great meal. Great service also.

WE GIVE THIS PLACE 5 STARS FOR BEAUTY, LUXURY, SCENIC VIEW OF OCEAN SUNSET, AND QUALITY OF FOOD . THE SERVICE WAS PERFECT AND WELL EXPLAINED, THE PRICEY CHOICES WERE LIMITED BUT WITH STYLE AND GREAT FLAVOR. WELL WORTH THE VISIT FOR A KING AND QUEEN OCCASION. A HIDDEN TREASURE TO CELEBRATE, OR GET ROMANTIC. THE STAFF EVEN LIKES TO HELP TAKE PHOTOS WHICH YOU PROBABLY WILL ASK.

Wait person was very sweet, but misunderstood wine and then forgot to bring cappuccinos. She charged us for them but did not offer to reimburse us. Maybe just a tad more training for staff. She was trying and maybe had too many tables

Very nice. Super attentive and well trained staff. All well timed and delicious. We were there mid-week and scored a great outdoor table with an excellent view. Super convenient when staying at the adjoining hotel.

We have been going to this restaurant since we came to FL over 10 years ago. We have gone through several excellent chefs and now egarley awaiting the new one. The menu needs a new look and I am sure the chef who comes from Puglia will shine through.

The service from Val as our waitress was outstanding!! She was knowledgable and attentive! Also very personable!! The other girl who refilled our water glasses and cleared our plates was also outstanding!! Can't remember her name, however she was a student from Romania working for the summer. Food was delicious. We had appetizers, salad, risotto and cavatelli dishes and desserts! We were pleased with every single bite!! My friend and I both have August birthdays and we could not have picked a better place to celebrate! We will return!! Thank you!

The patio at this restaurant is outstanding as was the service provided by Andrea. The best white sangria I've ever had and I've had quite a few. The meal was beautifully presented and tasted good albeit a bit low on the salt but easily fixed. The chocolate mousse desert was incredible and watching the Florida west coast from our table was memorable indeed. I recommend Sale e Pepa.

We had a wonderful dinner inside the restaurant due to the heat. I enjoyed the musician playing during our meal. After dinner we moved outside to a table for dessert and to watch the sunset. Our waitress was very attentive. It was a memorable experience.

We had a 7:00 PM reservation so we could watch the sunset and it was great. Our food was very good. The crispy chicken Marsala was awesome. The spaghetti others got was "ok". The prosciutto was a nice appetizer if you like that sort of thing.
Overall we would rate this restaurant a 4.5. The service was top notch, the sunset was spectacular (but that can be seen from anywhere on the beach) and the food we had was a little above average.
The restaurant itself was decorated beautifully. Although being pricey it was an overall nice dinner and we enjoyed the restaurant. If you don't mind spending a bit on dinner, this is probably a good choice for one of your dinner nights.
If we return to Marco Island, we would probably eat here again.

Everything but was good, with the exception of catching the bartender cheating on on our 2 for one happy hr. And the over charge on our bill,along with his language. There was not one American working in that restaurant .

Service and View Are Tops. New chef is only just putting his mark on the menu. Former Chef Giuliano was the very best and there is no reason to believe that Chef Alesso (?) won't excel as well as the management has a reputation of seeking leaders for the kitchen.
