Sale e Pepe - Marco Beach Ocean Resort Ratings and Reviews

We have not been there for years and frankly, it will be years before we come back. The food was expensive and is not anything like it was billed on the menu. the 'Veal Chop" was a thin piece of veal fried and in no way was what we were expecting. You are VERY expensive and the most you have going for you is your view. Good luck!!!

This was our 2nd visit and it's quickly becoming a favorite place for my wife and I to have a special dining experience. The view, the decor, the staff and the drinks/food is awesome!! I'd highly recommend this for a special occasion or just to spoil yourself. I can't wait for our next visit!!

We've enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner at Sale Pepe in the past and was looking forward to another memorable meal. This year was not the case. Service was extremely slow, 2 1/2 hours for a set menu. Server was confused about menu items, was inattentive and not real astute about my wife's special dietary needs that had previously been confirmed with F&B Director.
Food was nicely prepared and overall delicious, but did not see the value based on the amount we were charged.

We went during an off time it appeared since the the restaurant was near empty, but that didn't stop the wait staff. They were great!
The food was great! My entree was missing an ingredient (shrimp), I didn't notice till halfway through so I didn't bring it up. Other than that, everything we had, I liked.
I loved the decor and the view!
They did oddly charge me 18% tip, even though we were a party of two, but I did give a higher tip because they by far deserved it.

We arrived by car and our experience at Sale e Pepe did not start out very good. The valet parking people said that they wouldn't be responsible for anything left in our car, but we had laptops and iPads in our car, so I politely requested directions to self parking. This is when the rudeness began. They don't have self parking and after being directed to talk to other restaurant staff, we were told to park at a shopping center half a mile down the road. Outrageous! I was prepared to write a horrible review of this restaurant based on this alone, but the kind and welcoming staff inside the restaurant were wonderful. The food was fantastic! The view of the ocean was wonderful. And we left very pleased. We will definitely go back again. If this restaurant can resolve their parking problem, I'd give it a perfect rating!

I was warned by a couple as we walked in to turn around and not go in that it was terrible and it used to be great but they changed chefs. I took my chance and the food was very bland and tiny portions. I had a fish dish and my wife had a pasta dish. No flavor at all! I could have made something more flavorful for 1/10 of the price. I also ordered a zucchini soup special and it was the best thing we had. Not saying much at all! But when we received the bill it was $16 for a tiny bowl of soup. Needless to say I wont be back.

The food and service was amazing... however when trying to enjoy our diner the bar crowd was allowed to stand all around us in shorts and flipflops, blocking our view of the sunset and being loud and somewhat obnoxious. Totally took away from the dining experience.

Went to Sale e Pepe as it was recommended to us as "fine dining" and the food was indeed very good, the staff where knowledgable, pleasant and attentive, the noise level was quite high (as it usually is in American bars, but certainly the nearest thing to fine dining we have found in Marco. The bill at $130 a head was about right when you include the sunsets. Would recommend it for a special occasion.

The service was excellent and the food was perfect. We really enjoyed our meal. The only problem was that the terrace was rented out for a wedding, and the music was very loud. We were hoping for a quiet evening, but the music stepped on the second half of our meal.

Our anniversary dinner was delicious. We had red snapper and bolognese and both dishes were superb. The service was tremendous and our lead server Ruby was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will be visiting again very soon!

We have a house on Marco. There are endless great restaurants on Marco. But Sale e Pepe is superior. We never miss a night out in the classiest best place in town. The food is superior, the wait staff on top of every detail and Delroy is the best valet south of Macon ga. See you soon!

Sale e Pepe is a beautiful and elegant restaurant and one of my favorite to show off to friends and visitors to SW Florida. It is worth the drive from Naples. The food is outstanding. I have never been disappointed when I have dined at Sale e Pepe.

Exceptional meal - well served. My wife and I will go again for sure.
It was a little awkward arriving by car for the first time. The signage directs you to the hotel front where you are then directed where to drive to get back to the restaurant.

Great service all around. Delicious and authentic Italian cuisine in a beautiful indoor and outdoor setting overlooking the Gulf. Do try a pasta selection in addition to your main course as 1/2 portions are offered!

The location of this restaurant is great - it is overlooking the ocean and the atmosphere was beautiful. The food was very good, but the service was a bit slow - granted, they did have a big party outside on their terrace
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 ...
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
