The TA rankings for Marco Island are a little suspect; with a coffee shop #1, and 2 breakfast places in top 10. Maybe there should be a category breakout? Sale e Pepe is in a world class resort and this restaurant is only ranked #24 in TA? We are full time Marco Island residents and this is... read more

Set back in hotel/condo facing ocean. Restaurant has over the top italian themed inside seating and wonderful outside overlooking ocean seating. Very popular at sunset. Food was very good and setting memorable.

This restaurant was the most formal we encountered on the island. Dress is tropical chic, although we happened to be here on Memorial Day weekend, so the dress included a mix of Miami chic. The decor is baroque Italianate but the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We had a nice view of the outdoor balcony. There is a large... More

Tropical chic, we love that! Thank you for such a thorough interpretation of your cuisine, Chef appreciates that. Although reservations are encouraged they are not a mandate. By letting us aware of your visit we may prepare appropriate seating for your party, and do something particular for a specific celebration of occasion. From all of us at Sale E Pepe,... More

We've been going to Sal e Pepe for a few years, but have to say that the service & quality of food has deteriorated immensely...sorry 3 hour dinner is completely unacceptable.

One f the best dining experiences I have had. Outstanding food and service, but very pricey. $38 for Bronzino? The value for the food is average at best, although as previously noted, it is exquisite.

We are glad your experience was a memorable one. Creating an outstanding dining experience is the main objective and your perception of an ‘exquisite’ one brings a smile to the staffs’ faces. Chef Giuliano works with extraordinary ingredients, utilized in their ideal season, and often imported from ideal locations around the world. We hope that between the early bird offerings,... More

This restaurant is hidden behind the hotel, with a great view of the ocean. The food surpassed all expectations. This chef creates masterpieces of pastas combined with meats and cheeses that leave one crying of joy and delight. The garbanzo beans with pancetta and octopus were cooked in a tomato sauce that was so beautifully reduced, it tasted of caramel... More
