This is an understated little restaurant in the centre of Reading, but it punches far above its weight. The service was quick and friendly and the waiter provided informative descriptions of each dish and their background. Highly recommended.

Lots of excellent reviews for this please and I think it suffered from very high expectations. Ate hear alone when in Reading on business. Tap water offered, which I appreciate. Started with Buffalo mozzarella with radicchio, anchovies, olives. Simple, pretty and comforting. Nice starter. Would have liked a couple of extra anchovies to balance the radicchio. Bread is charged extra... More

So I hadnt actually ever seen this place-it's tucked into a little side street where I dont normally tend to go, but I have heard several times about this place through different places-they said it was a great italian restaurant where food is on the slightly expensive side. I used the online booking system on their website-which was very convinient... More

This was not actually my first visit, that being several years ago when I first moved to Reading. I couldn't remember much about it, least of all what the food was like, but I was surprised to think that I hadn't been back since. Having eaten there now, I'm even more surprised I hadn't been back since that first time...... More

Pepe Sale - A family run restaurant. Seemed to strive for perfection. The food - Bellissimo. Just watching the dishes come out of the kitchen was mesmerising. Made it very difficult to choose. The pasta I had was amazing. My partner had a seafood pasta and it surpassed all expectations. My tip: Do not snack beforehand. Just enjoy the ambiance... More

Pepe Sale is a lovely, family run Italian restaurant, the chef makes the pasta in the front of the restaurant, the specials are always a treat, the menu has something for everyone. Well worth a visit whether for a delicious bowl of pasta or a big family celebration.

This is a lovely neighbourhood Italian restaurant whose brilliant food and warm friendly service outshine it's setting in a 1970s office development. The food is Sicklinghall with daily specials and a well formed primary menu. Good fish & meat dishes and seriously excellent pasta. A great wine list and very friendly and informative staff headed by the charismatic Marco. I... More

My partner and I ate here tonight on a last minute whim. What a brilliant choice. Owner and staff are amazing; friendly hardworking and knowledgeable. It had a great atmosphere - although extremely busy you were never rushed. The food was absolutely delicious. If you can go on a Friday of Saturday night you have to have the suckling piglet....
