“If you only eat in Reading for one night, this is where I'd go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We are local and enjoy many restaurants in Reading, but this is without doubt our favourite. Both the food and the welcome are unfailingly excellent whether we've gone as a couple or with our (young) children. If you're only visiting Reading for one night, this is where I'd recommend.

“Amazing food, hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Not in the nicest area of Reading but once you are in Pepe Sale you are blown away by the authentic and homely Italian decor. Staff are very welcoming and pleasant. You immediately see fresh pasta being made upon entrance and the standard of the dishes are superb. If you want to taste real Italian food come here not to a standard chain.

“Well-kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Consitently good food and service. Fillet steak, suckling pig and whole sea bass in salt especially good. Don't be put off by the decor!

“Good food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Had a 3 course meal yesterday and wanted to write a review because the food and atmosphere was so good. I had a good table where I felt like i had some privacy even though other tables were close by. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was good, not much more you can ask for.
