Amazing decor, view, sunset along with simply wonderful food. From valet arrival to server and departure - service was second to none. Calamari (bartered shrimp), ravioli, pasta clams, veal, fish, Prosecco and dessert to die for. We’re a tough crowd (6 adults in their 50-60’s...and two old school Italian men who enjoyed their meal!) wow. Will be back. Highly recommend.More

I can’t say enough about the view. Even though we were seated indoors we could still see the gulf. The drink and wine list is extensive and every course was perfect. The servers greeted you with a smile and the ambiance is one of the...most beautiful that I have ever experienced. We took our time to soak it all in. Outdoor seating is perfect also but it was a little too hot for us because we ate earlier to watch the sunset. I very rarely give a five anywhere in the world but it sure earned it here. Portions are smaller so we had four courses and it was heavenly.More

Had a wonderful dinner here. Definitely the nicest of all restaurants we visited. Fantastic high end Italian.

We had a beautiful table over looking the beach and sunset, and the food was divine. We ordered the Cacio E Pepe, the swordfish special, the filet, the prosciutto appetizer and the carpaccio - all were delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice vacation...dinner.More

Pretty restaurant but the food was surprisingly bland, especially for a restaurant called Sale and Pepe. Not one of the better meals we had on our trip.

We had dinner at Sale e Pepe after watching the beautiful sunset and we had a table outside. From the beginning, the service was extremely attentive and caring. The food was utterly fantastic. We started with a side, the exotic mushroom and it was delicious....My wife had the halibut and it melted in her mouth. I had a special, black ink spaghetti with flounder and crab in a lobster bisque. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to have our final dinner there but they are closed on Monday. Well there is always next time.More

I agree with the gist of Fred’s review Feb 11 , 2021. Fish and veal overcooked, service below par, but salads and wine list were good. Why serve fish from the North Atlantic in an area with wonderful local seafood. The setting and sunset were...not beautiful enough to offset the dining experience. This place could and should be great.More

We booked a 5:30 pm reservation with a sunset at 6:10pm. Our table overlooked the ocean and we were able to dine while enjoying the beautiful sunset. The meal was one of the best I've had anywhere. Great recommendations for food and wine. Service and...ambiance were stellar. You can't go wrong here. I've been to Marco 3x and this is the best of the best.More
