Sale e Pepe - Marco Beach Ocean Resort Ratings and Reviews

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.

The staff made our evening a wonderful experience. From our first contact, we were asked about any food allergies or concerns. Our server made excellent recommendations on the menu. The food presentation and flavors were fantastic. The surprise anniversary wish was a special treat. We were made to feel welcome and important. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Marco Island.

I've dined there a few times & had excellent dinners & drinks but this time our apps where half cold. Mine was replaced immediately but my fiancee didn't say anything as he thought maybe there just having an off night but he paid for that thinking in the middle of the night.
We were in Marco Island I wanted a special night for my wife's birthday and they did not disappoint. The view from where we were dining of the sunset was beautiful. The food was amazing and the service was nothing short of outstanding. A must see if you are on Marco.
Beautiful setting, good food but not outstanding, they need to control families with misbehaving children and get better music. Marco Island seems to have blaring music every where, not sure what the deal is. Guess that's what all the Yankees like, lol
This is a beautiful spot to dine.
I wish we had looked at the menu in advance. We are not picky eaters but found it difficult to find a dish we really wanted (especially for an Italian restaurant). Many of the dishes had pork in them which I do not eat. Even when I thought I found a safe pasta dish I discovered it had tuna eggs in the dish.
I ended up with the Chicken Marsala which was good and we shared an eggplant parm appetizer that was excellent (wish I could've had that as a meal). I like to have more choices so therefore would probably not return.
The atmosphere and service was impeccable therefore we would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others but highly encourage them to peruse the menu first.
This restaurant was a little pricey but not outrageous.
Great location on the water
We were there for lunch, intrigued by their dinner menu and were a little disappointed in the selection on the lunch menu, not very Italian. The food was great though, we both had the lobster roll that was reasonably priced and had large pieces of lobster. The restaurant itself overlooks the Gulf and the gorgeous water, the place was very elegant. We will try dinner next time were are on Marco Island.
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset evening with a tasty dinner served professionally. There was however a noisy private cocktail part adjacent with our dining area that fortunately ended early into our dinner. It still remains a wonderful memory of a great evening.

The menu included a wide selection and the food was excellent. The service was truly memorable. Our server was extremely knowledgable and provided perfect recommendations for both the food and wine selections. And there is nothing like the view at sunset. It was a perfect Anniversary dinner.
good news and bad news
So the good news...it is a great location with a lovely vyiew of the sunsets and the food is very good.
The bad news ? While the server was very friendly and attentive the food service was incredibly slow.
The hostess who took our reservation call was cold, impersonal and on the edge of being downright surly. We came close to cancelling our reservation.
