Hidden away in a non-descript part of Reading ( and not very fashionable) is this very authentic Sardinian restaurant. The menu is not too long but is smothered in unique dishes cooked to near perfection. Staff care that you have come to see them and look after you with a smile but also a degree of serious respect.

I didn't know anything about Pepe Sale until I found it on TA and have to say I was very pleased we gave it a try. This is an excellent Italian restaurant, has to be one of the best in Reading. Staff very friendly, even though the place was very busy on a Friday night, the waiting service was attentive... More

Me and my mum often have shopping weekends in reading. We've been to a lot of restaurants in reading and we both agree this was our favourite place. The food was amazing, so tasty and you were so full leaving, for a reasonable price. Great choice of wine as well. Also the service was exceptional - you really felt they... More

We visited as a group of 4 last night, to celebrate my birthday. I last visited a few years ago and the food and service was as excellent as I remembered. My wild mushroom ravioli starter was a highlight, and could have been a main meal in itself. The staff were attentive and literally couldn't do enough for us, and... More

Much has been made of our visit with friends as it was billed to us as amazing. The service was fabulous, friendly and seamless for a big party. But the ambience doesn't match the prices (sorry but it looks cheap) and nor does the quality of the good. There was nothing wrong with the food at all. It was pleasant.... More

I was taken here for dinner on a Friday night by some friends who are established customers. It's an unpromising location, but the starters and main courses seemed freshly prepared and those that we tried were exceptionally good. There was a very warm and welcoming atmosphere and customers were clearly happy and enjoying their food. The service was very warm... More

First impressions of Pepe Sale weren't promising, but we were warmly greeted. This is a very authentic Sardinian restaurant. The staff were marvellous and guided us through the menu. My starter, the special porcini ravioli, was delicious as was my sea bass main. We had to leave in a hurry to catch our train and our waiter seemed genuinely disappointed... More

This is a very weird review as the food was excellent and the Italian chef and Italian manager were gracious and welcoming. However the tall blonde woman should get off her high horse once in a while and learn some manners

Very impressed regarding the wine menu which offers a various selection of Italian local wines. We asked for the special of the day which did not disappoint us! Would recommend to others and would go back again if living in Reading.

Work team meal in Reading. Decided (well MP decided) to book a table at Pepe Sale, my first time here - despite working in the area for 8 years or so. Wasn't disappointed!! I love Sardinian food and the food I enjoyed at Pepe Sale took me back to my Sardinian visits. 12 happy diners and value for money, exceptional!!!
