This used to be the best place on Marco. It is a gorgeous venue, but the menu can get a little too trendy and pricey - as well as the staff being a little full of themselves. We were there twice in the last month. Our last visit we had bugs/fruit flies in our drinks. It was a little gross,... More

The ambience was wonderful with the design favoring a medieval castle. There is a lovely terrace overlooking the Gulf of Mexico which is, unfortunately, largely booked for large parties, weddings, etc. The menu is completely a la carte with the exception of a prix fixe menu with a choice of three entrees for 45. Portions are tiny, prices are outrageous,... More

While using the freshest, local, and sometimes exotic ingredients, Chef Guiliano strives to exceed the expectations of all of our diners. We hope you will join us again and enjoy the... More

Unfortunately that's kind of the highlight of the dinner. Sale has a beautiful bar and patio. The restaurant really is beautiful. The food is good but not great. The service is actually pretty bad. Servers are a bit pretentious-not terribly friendly or helpful. Value is awful. Your clearly paying for the view. Decent restaurant if you've got money to burn.... More

We were seated promptly at a window table overlooking the patio and the Gulf--very scenic. Our server, Svetlana, greeted us immediately. Cocktails were prepared perfectly. There were several prix fixe options which included soup or salad and a dessert. Of the four of us, I had veal, the others seafood. The soup was excellent, the entrees very good. Svetlana was...

Sale E Pepe is a slice of Italy right here on Marco Island. The food and service are unsurpassed. Everything is just as it should be. If your budget is a bit restrictive, go all the same and have a drink at their beautiful bar. Happy hour is nightly, and drinks are two for one. Treat yourself to a bit... More

During our recent stay at Marco Beach Ocean Resort, we had dinner at The Terrace, part of the Sale E Pepe restaurant. The view from the terrace is simply amazing, it is a front row seat to the most beautiful nightly sunsets ever.

We were seated on the outside balcony with a direct view of the Gulf of Mexico, and by desert, a beautiful sunset. Very romantic! The wait staff was very attentive and the food was excellent in an Italian style.

My family and I ate at the restaurant in July after receiving great reviews from friends of ours on Marco. We ate early as the children were with us.
