Fine Italian Cuisine

The service was excellent. We walked the beach earlier and weren't overly hungry so we had the antipasto and an appetizer. The antipasto was delicious--very fresh mozarella, wonderful olives and a terrific prosciutto! The lobster croquettes were light and tasty and the wine was excellent.

While location may be the best asset, the place does just fine with drinks, apps, and dinners. The versatility of Sale e Pepe is a godsend as most folks are on vacation here. Casual or dressy, light meals or just drinks to watch the sunset, all are welcomed here and combine to make a nice community feel. You will love... More

As soon as we walked to the restaurant, we already felt welcome with a warm and all smile greetings from the host. This feeling has increased hundred folds all throughout our dinner not only because the place is beautiful but the people who provided service to us has exceed all our expectations starting from Ivo, the manager who took time...

We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant and it did not live up to its reputation. The food was mediocre, and terribly over priced. I know many restaurants in the east coast where I could have a far superior meal for half the price. Considering this was a special event with prior reservations, the service was awful.

Unfortunately, we experienced many of the same issues that several other recent reviewers noted. The staff tried to deliver an upper echelon level of service but missed the mark too many times. A few of the dishes were excellent but several were mediocre. We enjoy a leisurely dining experience and we were in no hurry at all but our meal... More

The sunset was incredible which made it all the better. Our food was delicious. And the halibut and really enjoyed it. My husband had the ravioli which was not a large portion, but he... More

A beautiful setting and great service. The "experience" exceeded the quality of the food (as a foodie) for the cost. Octopus wasn't tender, branzino was bland. Dinner for two was over $250, but I expect top flight cuisine at those prices, and this just wasn't. The sunset and great staff helped make up the gap...just keep your food expectations at... More

Lovely venue and great views but the food was so salty it was almost inedible. We were there celebrating our anniversary and waited an incredibly long time for our meals. Other patrons voiced the same concerns. When we provided feedback on the food to the head waiter, she argued with us stating we should have raised the issue sooner. I... More

Impeccable service but the food was overpriced. The food was good,just not excellent as I would have hoped.The steak was just ok The oysters however were dressed up with a superb caviar. Sal e Pepe is the perfect location to see the sunset with a lovely outdoor patio .
